Enjoy the gracious atmosphere of Old Italy; sit in the Leaning Tower, the Casa Royal or if your not in good graces with our Uncles, the Jail. Families have made us their "tradition" spot for their family life events since 1971!

Yesterday marked one year of restrictions for restaurants. In 49 years of business, we never dreamed of a year like the former. However, you as our community family have rallied around us and our employees while we did our best to figure out how to remain a staple and a home of so many of your memories. They say, "if it's not broke don't fix it”, but in a time when we all were broke, we found refuge in each other and we cannot be more grateful. From the Curbside Carryout, Pantry Pick-Up, Outdoor Dining and limited indoor dining, you have allowed us to grow and adapt in ways we never thought possible. THANK YOU for allowing us to support our families. THANK YOU for allowing us to grow. THANK YOU for adapting with us. THANK YOU for keeping us at the center of your table in a time when the table wasn't as full. As we transition to our "new world”, we come out stronger and more confident with the love you give us. THANK YOU for being our “Rock” Rockford. Make sure you keep an eye on all the things we are have planned this year, including what's about to happen at Pasqua Mercato.This video was made by Chelsea Capriola Photography (the same talented lady who has been making things for us for the past couple years). Please give her a "like."https://www.facebook.com/LinosRockford/videos/276165623887313/
