Semento's Napoli Cafe is a local family owned business since 1939. We have a full menu with huge portions. From Sandwiches, bar appetizers, and dinners to seafood. We also have large selection of beer and liquor choices. Our seating capacity is quite large and we can handle large groups for well. ( Advance notice is always helpful for groups over 10). We have huge deck for a outside seating. We offer a shuffle board table, dart boards, Mega touch machine and more. We also have a Non smoking dining room with a separate entrance on the East side of the building, with a handicap ramp. Since we DO allow smoking in the bar room no minors are allowed in any section of the building. We cater to all walks of life! Great for dinner, and also for late night fun! We have a full wait staff to make sure you have a relaxing evening. "Why don't you come to our house for dinner!"

As the title says, this is Valparaiso’s hidden gem. Valparaiso has its fair share of “trendy” eateries that seem to come and go . The revitalized downtown is overpopulated with them. Semento’s’ on the other hand has been around for more than fifty years It’s a family-run operation, now in its fourth generation. They’ve got it down pat! There’s not... More

My boyfriend and I went there on Saturday afternoon for a few drinks and dinner. We started off with the artichoke spinach dip. For $6.50 you got maybe a half a cup of dip that was very very bland. It could have used some garlic and salt to give it more of a flavor. For our meals I ordered a... More

Stopped in tonight for the first time. Started our meal with spinach and artichoke dip.I ordered a John Wayne burger and my husband got prime rib. All three were excellent. My burger was juicy and his prime rib had excellent flavor. Our server was covering the bar (12-15 patrons) plus 5 other tables. She was amazing. We never waited long... More

The food is a delicious surprise and the portions are generous. We chose to dine in the no-smoking room and received very attentive service. Who knew this local "bar" had such yummy food and sweet servers??

Marmac630, So glad you came in and enjoyed your meal. Many people are surprised when they come in. We have been here for over 70 years, and many Valpo residents don't know about us. Hope you return soon, next time ask for Tony or Robin, we would love to stop by your table and say hi. More

We walked into the bar and were blasted with smoke. I forgot there are still bars with smoking indoors! No matter. The service is friendly, the beer is cold, and the food is good. I had the meat lasagna which comes with yummy thin slices of garlic bread and a mixed greens salad. My fiancé had the stuffed manicotti with... More

I enjoy Sementos but only as a cold beer night out..If they were to go non smoking I think they would do much better..My wife and I enjoy our occasional nights out there but that smoky smell when we get home doesnt make it a first choice..Its down home..good service..food getting pricey but not bad..free popcorn..good atmosphere..

I came in with some friends on a drunken hungry night. We played pool, then ordered some burgers. I got the john Wayne. Jalapeños, BBQ sauce, juicy and delicious. Came on a pretzel roll. I like my food spicy hot. It was a perfect cure for my munchies.
