Tried about four different kinds of pasta and several kinds of pizza. Everything was very tasty, but the best part of the meal was the special Italian sausage salad Lino's is famous for. This alone makes the visit worth it.

My husband and I arrived with no reservations. They told us how long the wait would be, Happily it was shorter than expected. The waitress was professional and able to make adjustments that matched our tastes. We ordered dinners that included salad, crusty bread and...More

we had good service and it came quickly with all we ordered. the four of us ordered different food groups with drinks of soda and other alcohols, the atmosphere was very Italian due to the structure and paintings.

Used to be the premiere Italian restaurant in town. It’s doable but the decor is severely outdated. The food isn’t top quality. It’s ok but nothing spectacular.

Good food & atmosphere, reasonably priced. Pizza, fried cod & ground sirloin are my favorites. Freshly baked bread with meals, sides are great, finished off with a scoop of ice cream!

We waited a long time for our meal and the Alfredo Sauce tasted like flour. Pasta was sticky and not hot. Busy place but no where near impressed as food is not good.

Eat here!! From the salad to the pizza and the lasagna, it was all wonderful! I don’t think there is a way to be disappointed. Make sure to make a reservation, it was really busy!!

Linos doesn't have a salad bar. Their salad is a special Italian salad with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, sliced eggs, sliced sausage, Parmesan cheese and their special house dressing. It is the best salad! Try it you will love... More
