Owners Therese Janssen and Lino Autiero

Lino Ristorante Italiano is an authentic Italian restaurant located on the Sheboygan River in Sheboygan’s South Pier District with seating for approximately 90 people — additional seating in the summer along the two exterior patios. Lino Autiero has reinvented the Italian food experience for the sophisticated palate, as well as for casual family diners, by serving high-quality, fresh food at reasonable prices.

Lino Autiero is an industry veteran with restaurant experience expanding 35 years starting on a global cruise line at age 15. By age 32 Lino was co-owner of Fresco, a highly successful 5-star Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, California. More recently, Lino managed the 5-star Rendezvous Restaurant at the Qvisisana Luxury Grand Hotel on Capri Island, Italy where he directed his friend, Wolfgang Puck’s wedding in 2007.

Lino’s sister, Rosa, a former executive chef from Italy’s Amalfi Coast, visits the kitchen. Rosa started cooking as a young girl for their large Italian family.

The menu at Lino Ristorante Italiano is a culmination of Lino’s favorite childhood dishes from the Amalfi Coast, as well as recipes gathered during a lifetime of experience in the culinary industry. The menu includes a wonderful variety of dishes — salads, seafood, homemade pastas, veal and, of course, bread and desserts all prepared fresh daily. Local organic products are used as much as possible along with the finest imported Italian ingredients.

Come enjoy the capturing view in a Mediterranean atmosphere where you will find impeccable customer service and authentic Italian charm.
