Our family of ten arrived at 5:30 PM on a very busy, rainy, Friday (fish fry) night. We had called in a reservation only one hour before. We were seated within five minutes of everyone arriving, at a suitable table with wait staff ready for our drink orders. None of us elected the all you can eat fish fry and... More

Lino's is my go to family spot, we have been coming for many years and always have a great time. They are able to accommodate our large family, around 20 people, making our gatherings easy and delicious. The salad is a must, but my favorite dish is the spaghetti olio. My family loves Lino's and it's staff!!

Visited on a Sat eve in September. Lively atmosphere, seated promptly, attentive waitress. Ordered chicken parmigiana and pizza. Chicken parmigiana was bland, sauce tasted like tomato soup. Pizza was bland thin crust. Not a good experience.

We loved the food. I had cheese ravioli with Alfredo sauce. It was delicious. My husband had veal parmigiana. He loved it also. They both came with salad and dessert. We had peppermint ice cream yum. Excellent waitresses, others picked up the dishes as soon as we finished but no pressure. Separate little rooms with interesting Italian decor. Enjoyed the... More

Whether you have the Lino chicken with special salad or have their pizza, your stomach will thank you! The homemade Italian homemade sausage is a must for the pizza!

I like this place. The owners and staff want to please, and the food is good. It's certainly not pricey. Go for solid Italian fare, and you will not be disappointed.
