I like the buffet here and frequent on the weekends. Good selection and has always been fresh. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Only complaint is the clowns they have come in.

I was fairly impressed by this restaurant. Nice selection of food on buffet and clean. Good, helpful service. The face painter and balloon lady were hovering over the tables a bit so that is why I didn't give this review an excellent. Reasonable price and well worth it.

In the 1950s, Valentino's was nearly the only restaurant in town (Lincoln, Nebraska) that served pizza. It was so popular you had to take a number to get seated and there would be 40 or 50 parties ahead of yours. Since there was no waiting area, the 50 hungry parties would be standing around the outskirts of the restaurant staring... More

Valentino's used to be the place to go. Good, hot food and plenty of variety. This place just isn't like that anymore. Our last visit was so disappointing. The variety has declined significantly. The food that was there wasn't particularly fresh looking, and wasn't stocked well. At one point, most of the pizza was gone (on a Sunday at noon... More

Honestly, I have tried around 4 different specialty pies and each one has been exceptional. One of the best thinks about Valentinos is their crusts, very flavorful and you will never compare it to the pizza mills that crank out blah. I have not been to their buffet in years, but from what I remember, it was awesome with pizza,... More

We ate with a group 50 people on a Friday night and the restaurant had more than enough group seating. They offer a large variety of food and it is pretty good quality for a buffet. Everything was hot and fresh and replenished quickly when it was out. The staff was awesome in clearing plates and checking on things during... More

Went to Valentino's on a Friday evening about 7:00 p.m. It wasn't overly busy, but there so little food offerings available. The soups looked as if they had been in the warmers for days. The salad bar was in dire need of refilling. The pizza selection was cheese, all the others were empty, as was most of the other food... More

I am not a big fan of writing reviews but this restaurant has definitely gone downhill. We had 9 people in our party paying 14.50 each and the food was terrible. Nothing was stocked, the food was old and dried up and the service was something to be desired. It was a Monday night at 6pm so you would expect... More
