Pina Linguina coming soon in Howell

I was driving to Howell yesterday and saw this restaurant's sign coming up. It's taking over the Turkish Grill on route 9. It's supposed to be a pasta house.

Address will be 2775 US 9N in Howell.

  1. Hopefully they last. Everything that wnet there never makes it. Remember it use to be a Portuguese restaurant?

    Hopefully, this guy does'nt loose his shirt.

    1. Turkish Grill? Portuguese restaurant? Where exactly is this on 9? I feel like the proverbial broken record, but... Just what we need! Another pasta joint! Of course, if it turns out to be something special... Anyone want to take bets on that happening?! lol

        It's across the street from Sushi by Kazu in Howell.

          I'm afraid that doesn't help me much because I don't know where Sushi by Kazu is located.

            1/4 mile north of RT 9 n & I-195

      2. Pina Linguina is now open. I was driving by it the other day and the Grand Opening sign was up. Has anybody been there yet?

          For some reason that space always looks empty. Even when it was a Turkish grill & before that a Portuguese restaurant. Funny thing the IVY LEAGUE & SUSHI by KAZU restaurants is always Packed just a block or so away! Go figure?
