A Nebraska Tradition

We grew up celebrating special occasions here and it was a popular venue for date nights. I ordered a pizza recently when in town for a family illness, and it was still as good as it was 40 years ago.

I would say over 100 items of food to try, not only pizza, but much more. Drinks (soda, tea, etc are extra). No alcohol served at this one. My... More

If you like Italian food make sure you stop at one of the many Valentino restaurants while in Lincoln. They are one of my favorite places to go for Italian food!

If you like pizza, you'll like Valentino's pizza, a long-time hometown favorite here in Lincoln. If you're not in the mood for pizza, their buffet offers a wide assortment of tasty soups, salads and main dishes. A great family restaurant.

this place is very good pizza. they are not afraid to put some stuff in the pizza. I also like the lasagna there, that too can't be beat. they have a real good buffet there, too. you can't beat that for Italian food I have been loyal to this place for many, many years. I will continue to return again.

Valentino's dose have good pizza, but I was surprised when I got the bill. You defiantly pay for it. Also it seems like they are not used to being busy. When I was there they seemed flustered that it was lunch time.
