The service was excellent and so was the price. Everyone was friendly and attentive. My wife ordered mushroom ravioli Marsala and I had the gnocchi Parmesan. Extremely generous portions and both tasted great. Wonderful restaurant and can't wait to return. We've recommended to friends who live locally.

Staff was pleasant and helpful. The menu was fairly ordinary - nothing seemed to have a 'house twist'. Serving sizes were more than ample but flavor was average. We went here because of positive reviews we had read. Unfortunately, this restaurant did not live up to the hype.

One of the best waitresses I've ever encountered, 4 couples all with some alteration to their order without writing anything down... was amazed. The pizza capricosa was awesome, even though my favourite there is the Lamb Osso Bucco, Everything on the menu is always good and refreshed from time to time with new ideas.

Many had recommended this restaurant as an authentic Italian eatery, and so I decided to give it a try. Although it is a matter of personal taste, I liked the decor as it reminded me of the "try too hard to look Italian" places my family visited when I was a child. Service was good and the server was especially... More

Service was top notch with friendly and helpful hints. The food took a little longer to come than usually expected probably because I was with my 9 and 7 year old sons so patience wasn't at the top of my list that night. Italian food that is done right and everything we had was exactly that - done right! Because... More

My women's group reserved a semi-secluded area at the front of the restaurant just to the left of the front door. It was a great spot that accommodated the 14 of us without any difficulty. I don't frequent Lina's often, but have been going here maybe once a year for years since it opened. I've been to both the restaurant... More

Food is very good with generous helpings. Somewhat dark and very noisy. Very busy. Service was very good. Would be excellent if they were not located in a strip mall. Atmosphere sucks.

I have been there for tapas on Tuesday/Thursday nights in the bar area as well as on Pasta Night and just regular dining in the restaurant. The tapas menu changes periodically, which is good. The portions are small, but they're supposed to be - they're tapas. The regular dining in the restaurant is not great. The meals seem ordinary and... More
