Went with friends. Salads and warm bread were great. My wife had the Pesto Salmon. Said it was very good and the small taste I got confirmed that.

Pestos has an authentic homey feel yet food that rivals any Chicago restaurant. Outstanding service but reservations are recommended esp on weekends snd Wednesdays for pasta buffet. Affordable prices and lots of selection. Generous portions include salad or soup..and bread with oil.

Affordable and tasty. Their vodka chicken is a must, unfortunately I tend to always get it and do not very to often. All of my other plates have always been good. Service has always been good and seating is spacious.

Food is just average, portion sizes are tiny for what you pay. Italian sauce taste like it came from a jar. Many better options in Valpo.
