A Truly great dining experience. From the moment we entered the door until we were finishing our desert we were treated superbly. The staff was great and the pasta was superb. A totally great evening.

Lino's is one of our favorite Italian restaurants! We have never had a bad meal there and even held our reception in their banquet room. If we don't go there for dine-in, we usually get it for takeout on Saturday nights.

First off, let's talk about the professionalism of the staff. It was impressive - they were slammed with homecoming teens and the usual Saturday night crowd, and they handled it well. Our server (who was moving around quickly between the tables she was serving) even...More

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
