If you haven't tried it, you must. The pizza is awesome. Well, haven't had a bad meal there yet. From what I hear, if you have a problem the owner's are always there to make it right. There's something special about their sauce. Always have to get Lino's pizza after traveling as one just crave's it. Oh, and try their... More

linos has been my favorite restaurant for over 40 years. The lasagna special is great. Their carry out is fantastic. The Bautista boys are very gracious hosts and the wait staff is like family. From intimate family gatherings to class reunions to wedding receptions. Linos has it all and more.

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

My family has been customers of Linos for years. The owners go above and beyond to make sure your meal in enjoyable. It is one of the few family owned restaurants in town. The food is tasty from the pizza to the the pasta. They are known for their Linos special salad. It comes served family style. Each complete meal... 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 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
