Great food!

This past week during a whopping rainstorm we found a jewel in the night. Both couples being from out of town found that this warm friendly restaurant provided the setting for a wonderful evening. The service by Hannah was over the hill. She fully explained the specials that night and what good choices would. The owner stopped by to say... More

Linos has been a family run affair for decades. Old world charm with original recipes. Pizza, baked chicken and house salad are staples. They don't get fancy, they don't try too hard and they don't try to be something they are not. These are family recipes served the same way for many many years. If you need expensive upscale italian... More

Just spending the night in Rockford, I used Trip Advisor to find a place to pick up some pizza to go back to the hotel with. Lino's had good reviews so I ordered over the phone and picked it up on my way to the hotel. Not knowing the area, I went in the front door, as one would expect... More

We are not really into Banquet food. But Linos is really able to put on quite the event, and for a VERY VERY fair price!!!! Especially compared to the "competition". For a 20-50 person event they can not be beat. Great food, and it does not arrive as if it was prepared hours ago.

We came out of our way to eat here because of the excellent reviews, and we were not disappointed. This is not Disneyland nor high-end, but a very popular, well-done, middle-class, family-friendly establishment. The restaurant is full of atmosphere with all sizes of rooms and nooks and crannies to accommodate any size family. Service was excellent; we were even greeted... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Portions were a good size. Service was excellent. The special house salad is a must try. Pizza is almost as good as New Jersey pizza which in my opinion is high praise indeed.

Here's the deal with Lino's. The service and staff are excellent, I couldn't ask for anything more. Also, the ambiance of the place is special, it's the type of restaurant you want to wander around in a bit just to get the feel of the place. It was recently recognized as an Illinois landmark. The pizza we ordered was under... More

A must stop for their early bird dinners that include their special house salad, a generous entree, dessert and beverage. The waitstaff is always helpful and accommodating. A nice place for a casual meal with family or friends.
