Excellent experience! We had been driving for 11+ hours and did not want to eat out. Called for delivery and received our food in a reasonable time. It was hot and delicious. We ordered a cheese pizza for the kids and a Cheeseburger Bacon Pizza along with salad. We also got their cinnamon breadsticks and decided they would be great... More

Was in town for the Fair and stopped in to eat. Buffet was full of hot food, pizza was average tasting nothing special about it. Price was a little high for the quality. Servers were nice checking on us often and clearing empty plates. Standard Pizza restaurant. Nothing to write home to mom about.

We were at the lake and decided to take the short drive back into town for some pizza. Ordered by phone and the pizza was ready when we got there. The 16 inch is huge and cut into many pieces but it does make it easier to eat. We tried the original special and the hawaiian and they were both... More

Try as they might this hometown place is just sad and rundown. Typical buffet food, overpriced and just plain unappetizing. The restaurant is grimy, floors dirty, walls dirty and my trip through the kitchen to use the employee restroom made me wish I hadn't eaten there to begin with. The whole place needs a scrubdown. The waitstaff were pleasant but... More

We ate the dinner buffet. It didn't start until 5 pm but we got there at 430 and waited for the buffet. They had a lot of vegetarian options for me. I could have ordered a gluten free pizza too! They deliver. The manager charged us the lunch buffet price since we waited. My DH ordered a beer and we... More

There just isn't enough flavor to Valentino's Italian food in Ogallala. I regret to review this food as bland - because their buffet was generous and the staff seemed hard working and friendly. Some combination of garlic, oregano and/or Italian seasoning is desperately needed in their tomato sauces here.

We had a 3 day school at Valentino's and it was GREAT! They provided great coffee and morning snack items and then we had the buffet for lunch! What GREAT pizza!! Our school attendees let us know we made a great choice having the school there!

Disappointed. The place is a dump. Not much of a selection for a buffet. Limited items that had been left out for a long time. Does not compare to Lincoln/Omaha Valentino's. The service was good, but still overall average at the very best.
