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

Have been here many times. The place always seems to be busy. Food is ample and tasty. Menu is not special. Can be somewhat noisy.

I love Lina's it has been my favourite for years. Love their house salad and so many amazing choices for entrées. My husband is a vegetarian and he has lots of choices. We had my parents 50th wedding anniversary dinner there a few years ago, everything served family style, it was great! Will always continue to go back!

Although this place has been in business for twenty years I'm not sure why it's nothing special. Went for a meal and it was packed and full of screaming children. It's so loud you can hardly talk to each other. The dish I ordered was shrimp angel hair pasta with goats cheese and it was alright although the shrimp were... More
