Visited Dino's yesterday for the first time (3 September 2016). It's very old-fashioned, which to me is a good thing, and it has a good offering of pasta dishes. I had 1/2 and 1/2 spaghetti and ravioli, and my wife had ravioli. The portions were exactly right for each of us, and our drinks (a Margarita and a glass of... More

This little restaurant has been around since the 60's. My Dad use to get a pizza for us on Sunday nights and we'd watch Disney and Bonanza. Since then, we still stop by for great basic Italian food in no frills atmosphere.

Just a note before I get started. I am a retired educator and in 1966 I was hired to teach at Lakewood High School in Colorado. In the process of teaching and coaching I was introduced to the founder and taught the current owner. This restaurant is not only a community hot spot but serves wonderful and delicious food. The...

I have been going to Dino's for over 48 years. Dino his self has past away but his way of running a wonderful family restaurant has not changed. The food is as good if not better than home made. I highly recommend it.

The pizza at Dino's is wonderful!! I love to bite into the cheese pizza. Just thinking of the first bite makes my mouth water!!! The meatballs and sausage are extremely tasty. You will not be sorry choosing this Italian restaurant.

We first tried this restaurant in 1977 for a family birthday dinner. Everything was great--service, food, drinks and prices. We went a few days ago and was greeted in the same friendly way, seated promptly, ordered and was served in the same great way. You feel like you are family. Food was excellent once again. Huge servings. Some of us... More

This place has been around forever. I first went with girlfriends where I was a Senior in High School. That was 43 years ago. It still has the same decor (which could use some updating). The same salad with their Italian dressing which if very tart and sour - but for some reason I actually like it. Same white bread... More

Est. 1961 Old School Italian. Family owned. Very large servings. Most meals come with salad and house dressing, bread. We had the lasagna with meat. Stuffed Manicotti with cheese and meatballs on the side. All of it was very good!! They also have homemade pie and ice cream. I will definitely be back! 😊

I understand that Dino's is an enduring and beloved place for people in Lakewood, but we found the food a bit disappointing. We were expecting such great food, based on the reviews, but we actually found it all very average and even quite bland. My family is from Louisiana, perhaps we are just accustomed to spicier versions of what we... More
