I was going to visit a fiend in the hospital across the street when I found this gem of a place. I called to order a pizza for take out and had a special request to cut the pieces into 1' squares as I would be feeding the guy with 2 broken arms. The pizza was cut just the way... More

We are not from Rockford but often find ourselves travelling through. A friend recommended this restaurant. We had a little difficulty finding it but the search was well worth it! The food was wonderful. This is a wonderful place to bring the whole family. There were people of all ages. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful with recommendations. We... More

We dined in at Linos last Thursday night. we had the Linos special - which was 1/2 chicken / 1/2 pasta. The chicken was incredible - fell off the bone and pasta was good. My family enjoyed the food so much that we ordered Pizza from there the next night. The Pizza was even better - probably the best thin... More

We were a group of over fourteen people and they gave us a private space on a very busy Thursday evening. My entre was the spaghetti with sausage which I ordered with extra sauce. It was genuinely very tasty. The meal was served with family style salad for those who made that choice while others ordered an individual salad. It... More

This was a first time visit. I have many food restrictions and they accommodated each one of them. No salt, potassium or phosphorous . Even with those restrictions, food was abundant, very reasonable and delicious!

If you like terrific Italian food you don't want to miss this wonderful restaurant! Prices are really good and you will probably take home a bowser bag as you won't leave hungry. All meals include delicious ice cream. Chocolate, vanilla, rainbow sherbet, peppermint and of course Spumoni! Oh yes I forgot the terrific house salad. Why not try it Tonight.

We were in the mood for some Italian food before our two hour drive home. Previous reviews praised this establishment so we stopped in for an early dinner. Lucky for us they have an early dinner menu that reflects special prices on selected menu items. The service was prompt and courteous. Surprisingly, the owner stopped by our table, welcomed us...
