How often have you requested a loaf of bread after the meal because you needed it to soak up the remaining sauce?

Have you run a fork or knife along the top of the plate to get whatever is left, because you couldn't resist leaving what you'd consider "leftovers?"

That's what it's like when you order dinner at Lino's, 5611 East State Rockford.

A restaurant that has been a Rockford staple for over 40 years and has a dedicated customer base is many things to many people.

Lino's is comfort food, family, or just really good pizza. For us, this trip was all about Lino's Eggplant Parmesan.

Just when you thought you wouldn't be tempted to lick the sauce off a plate in public, you eat at Lino's.
