I was able to try a couple of their pizzas at a special event there, as well as their special salad, and the food was excellent. Lino's has several dining areas, and this was a private dining area in the basement that was very nice.

We love this restaurant for its excellent Italian food. The pizza and pasta are wonderful. It draws a family oriented crowd with it's easygoing attitude, very reasonable prices, neat decor and prompt service. Only downside is the staff can lack energy and appear complacent.
