Exceptional Customer Service

We frequent Lino's quite a bit and have never had a bad experience there. Over the top service from management to the wait staff. We go back time and time again because of the way way they treat their customers! YES, their food is excellent too!

The meal started out with bread that had a crunchy crust and soft moist center. Smothered with real butter, it was very good, but not outstanding. The salad was a mixture of romaine and iceberg lettuces, sprinkled with sliced hard-boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, some sort of sliced sausage, covered with a spicy house vinegar and oil dressing. Average at best.... More

It is wintertime, why was there a dead fly in my special salad? Why did you then only offer to pay for my meal? My family didn't want their food either after that! Wish it wouldn't have happened

Great service, great food and fun, idyllic atmosphere. Hoping to go back some time soon. The décor was unique and fun. Pasta and sauce was delicious, as was the steak, chicken parmesan. I didn't care for their bread or meatballs, but that's more of a personal preference.

mediocre Italian quisine, friendly staff, busy place with a realatively good carry out service for Pizza and other items. A family atmosphere but noisy. Good service in most cases. Had the fish there on a Friday during Lent and it was terrible so do not go there for fish but why would you anyway, it's an Italian restuarant.

The pizza here is the best in town. Steaks are awesome. The special salad is great. The red sauce is traditional. The atmosphere is unique and gives you a Italian experience without leaving town. The Spumoni ice cream is specially made for them. They have meeting rooms for large and small groups. They have a large pizza, special salad and... More

Was in town for a AHL hockey game and saw on TripAdvisor. This place is AMAZING. Food was fantastic, tasty, and fresh. Service was outstanding. Lino's opens at 430p and we were there at 445p, we were able to get a table without a reservation but I think that if we had been there any later it would have been... More
