The pizza was fresh and crust was crispy. We ordered a Sausage and Pepperoni pizza and the sausage and pepperoni was plentiful! No skimping here! Staff was very attentive and refills on soda and water were on mark. Great atmosphere! A must go to place in Rockford.

Lino's has been around for years and for very good reason. The food and the service has never disappointed us, the decor is pleasant and comfortable and the prices are reasonable for what you get. We're headed back to Rockford in a few weeks and we definitely will be stopping in for a great Italian meal.

It was not our first visit to Lino's and this experience, like others, was positive. The atmosphere is family oriented, grandma, grandpa and the kids that many tables. The bar area is comfortable with small tables for casual dining. The menu includes Italian standards, pizza and sandwiches. Everything we've had has been consistently well prepared and portions are large.

Linos is always crowded. It doesn't matter if it is the carryout window or the restaurant, there is always a wait. Sometimes it is very long. But, it must be understood that this is the best and most consistent quality Italian restaurant in Rockford. Greatness brings customers. So, grab a drink, sit down and relax for your table. Waiting is... More

I have been going to Lino's for years. They have always treated me and my family with great respect. They roll the red carpet out every time for us. They roll it right back up and roll it again for customers walking in behind me and so forth. This family truly knows how to treat its guests. I would recommend... More

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.
