As someone mentioned pizza sauce was awesome. Crust is a little thin making it soggy for microwaved leftovers. Portions are very generous. Plan on ordering ahead due to the long wait 50-60 minutes but worth the wait. Very small with limited dining in and noisy due to small size. Very family oriented and casual. Plan on making it a habit.

It was after the lunch rush on a Sunday afternoon and there were hardly any cars, so we had low expectations. We couldn't have been more wrong. We started with Bruschetta appetizer which was very good topped with sundried tomatoes, olives and garlic with balsamic...very light and just perfect. I both lunches with salad. The salad was just right, romaine with tomatoed and mozzarella - mine with homemade house dressing and hasband with ranch, both were delicious.I had linguine with clam sauce, husband had beef tortelinni with peas and mushrooms in cream sauce. Both were excellent. Very tasty but not overly spiced nor gratuitously rich....just right. A basket of tasty garlic bread was served to the table.We had enough left to take home along with a large slice of the to me the servings were more than ample.Total cost with iced teas and before tip was $32.Service was apprpriately attentive, everything was very fresh and the wait was not long. I could have not been more shocked as the location (strip mall) and lack of clear signage (can't tell it's an italian restaurant) make it feel a little sketch but take a chance - you won't be sorry. We will visit again.

We have been going to this Imo's for years now, everyone is so friendly but the last few months the restaurant itself isn't very clean. The floors look gross, and everything else looks questionable. We recently went to the one in Columbia, IL and overall the pizza and wings were much better tasting, the crust was much crispier and the place was very clean. I would recommend that one if you are in the area.
