Rockfordians promote Lino's Italian restaurant as a "hidden gem". I would agree! After moving to Rockford only 4 weeks ago, we have been there twice. The first time with friends. The lasagna was wonderful! The house salad is unique to Lino's and was very good. We went back a week or so later to try the pizza. It has a... More

This is probably the most successful restaurant in Rockford, due to the consistent quality of the food and service provided at a very reasonable price. They have been in business since the 1970's and are open nearly every day of the year. One or both of the two owners is always there, working in the kitchen and walking around talking... More

The fiesta dinner is outstanding with more food than anyone can eat, and the family style Lino's special salad is fabulous.

Lino's is a great place for pizza and is inexpensive. They are very busy at times so it is good to plan ahead for take out. In the restaurant the food is also very good and the wait staff is very attentive. Lino's would make the excellent category if they delivered.

Locally owned. Great pizza, pasta and salad. Good for families. Dine in - expect a wait without reservations during high time.

The Chicken ala Lino on Thursday nights is the best baked chicken you will ever have. The price is very reasonable and you get a lot. Chicken is always the same every Thursday. Very flavorful and juicy.
