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.

I went there with a group of people the other night. The pizza was no better than what you would get from Papa Johns. Poor quality ingredients and what toppings there were weren't many. Very disappointed. .

Little Caesars makes better Italian food than this over rated slop-house. Don't waste your money. If you're looking for good food and atmosphere, this isn't the place.

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
