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.
