Last night I was there and they sat me and my 3 year old daughter in the jazz room. Not at all where I would expect to sit a 3 year old. Took 10 minutes for waiter to reach table. Salad and bread came quick. Took another 30 minutes after that to get meals. Then I stared at an empty... More

Lino's makes the best Lasagna- and at a very good price. I love the atmosphere, you really feel the warmth of the Italian countryside.

This is always our first stop when we arrive in Rockford! The pizza is incredible, special salad is out of this world, lasagna is delicious! You can't beat the Meal Deal for take-out! Large pizza, special salad and liter of pop for $13! WHAT?

This restaurant draws a lot of locals but I can't figure out why. The tomato sauce is way too sweet and the same sauce is on every dish, unlike what you find in Italy. The pasta is over cooked and soggy. The special salad is fairly good but only if you eat it in the restaurant. If you order it... More

We dined here on Saturday night, same night as many area school's homecoming events. The place was packed as usual. There was a large reunion downstairs and too many homecoming parties to count. We were still able to make reservations for 3 and got seated very close to our 6pm reservation time. The staff here is amazing from the hostesses... More

While in town visiting family, we made the trip to Lino's . Our group shared a huge salad and 3 different kinds of pizza---all outstanding. Service was warm and prompt without being overbearing. I would definitely recommend reservations as this place was hopping.

There specialty salad is the way to go and there homemade pasta is wonderful. Pizza is also available. You don't leave hungry. Friday fish fry is a full course dinner including desert. The restaurant is always busy and recommend making reservations.
