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.

The pizza...the fried cod...the lasagna...oh my gosh the lasagna! Best lasagna I've ever had. Their pizza is amazing. Their Friday fish fry is amazing. Plus, everything is under $12!

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...

The place is packed most weekend evenings and the draw is the pizza. Ambiance is not good … traditional Italian dishes are average. The pizza is VERY good. We like the carryout … I'd pass on the restaurant side of the place unless you like small banquet chairs, tight tables and really mediocre food other than the pizza.

On the recommendation of Tony at the Hampton Inn, I tried Lino's for the first time. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. The menu offered great variety, price and even dessert was included. My business colleagues and I enjoyed a great meal and our waitress, Tina was very attentive and took good care of us during our meal. I... More
