This place is so bad, it makes we want to go to Olive Garden- which sucks. It's amazing that people actually like this place. Well people like Mcdonalds, so yeah, I get it.

I don't usually write negative reviews, but going to this restaurant based on the other reviews I'd read here was the first time Trip Advisor reviews have let me down. I'm doing this for the sake of other travelers! The salad was great. The pasta, pizza and service were l mediocre at best. The pasta is all Cisco grade that's... More

I've been linos many times and always enjoy the food and the atmosphere. This time my work had our lunch time Christmas party at lions for the first time in many years. We were seated upstairs, and I have to say I was really impressed with the atmosphere, service and food. The chef was very accommodating towards me by making... More

Ate here with my family and a friend form Rockford University. Everyone enjoyed the food. I ate the Spinach Ravioli. OMG. I couldn't keep people out of my plate. Kudos, Lino's! We will be back when passing through Rockford and hungry.

For dinner before heading to an IceHogs game, we made a reservation for 2 to sit at 5:30pm. Thankfully we did as when we arrived, the parking lot was already full and a wait line present as many as 7 deep. We were seated and waited for some time before server arrived, but provided good recommendations. The food is fresh,... More

Our family decided to have our Christmas dinner catered by Lino’s as this place is a Rockford tradition and staple. Everybody in town has eaten here or brings their visitors here. We ordered salad, lasagna, and meatballs. The food was excellent. Would highly recommend Lino’s.

The pizza was fresh and crust was crispy. We ordered a Sausage and Pepperoni pizza and the sausage and pepperoni was plentiful! No skimping here! Staff was very attentive and refills on soda and water were on mark. Great atmosphere! A must go to place in Rockford.

Lino's has been around for years and for very good reason. The food and the service has never disappointed us, the decor is pleasant and comfortable and the prices are reasonable for what you get. We're headed back to Rockford in a few weeks and we definitely will be stopping in for a great Italian meal.

It was not our first visit to Lino's and this experience, like others, was positive. The atmosphere is family oriented, grandma, grandpa and the kids that many tables. The bar area is comfortable with small tables for casual dining. The menu includes Italian standards, pizza and sandwiches. Everything we've had has been consistently well prepared and portions are large.
