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.

Dining at Lino's is an experience that includes a great menu and meal, but a caring service to you that starts with waitress/waiter and a touch from ownership too. Great entrees, great salads, and tasteful deserts. And...they have musical entertainment that livens the spirit! P.S. The Shrimp de jonge is just great.

Recently visited Lino's with friends for pizza and drinks. As usual we were greeted with a cheery smile and promply seated in the"Village", one of several great rooms at this Rockford institution. The food was great, the service was prompt, and the atmosphere very pleasant. It doesn't matter if you are having pizza, pasta, steaks, or one of their great... More
