The food was absolutely awful. The pizza selection was minimal, the food was cold, and after bringing our beverages, the "waitress" disappeared. A buffet should have more than three selections, in my opinion.

Can't beat Valentino's for delicious pizza and a great buffet! I love the LAYERS of toppings. The variety on the buffet is yummy as well -- and yes, the cinnamon rolls are the BEST! Great for take-out or dine-in, but we have not ever done half-baked. Val's is a MUST for anyone who is visiting Nebraska. You will love it,... More

Went with a group for Saturday dinner (lunch to some). We arrived around noon so they had only been open for a hour. The floor was so sticky, I thought they mopped it with pop from the soda fountain. Wait staff was friendly and the food was ok. 5 stars for the dessert cinnamon rolls! For the price we can... More

Pretty good buffet. Valentino's pizza isn't as good as way back when in my college days in Lincoln when they had one location near the UNL Ag College. But the buffet value is good with an OK salad bar and multiple kinds of pizza. They have a good desert with pizza crust and fruit topping.

Anyone from Nebraska is familiar with Valentino's and Runza. Both restaurants are Nebraska originals with extremely loyal, devoted followers. The Norfolk, Nebraska Valentino's however, does not live up to the standard one comes to expect from a Valentino's restaurant. On numerous occasions, I have arrived to a crowd at the front door waiting to be seated. Inside, is a partially... More

I always have the buffet when I go here. It seems like everything is always fresh and they have a great variety of choices. I especially like their pasta and desserts.

Valentino's has been in Nebraska a long time, as I have fond memories of eating at the original Valentino's back in the late 50's while attending college near Lincoln, NE. All the ingredients used are fresh. Love the pizza crust! The buffet is a real value. They also have a senior discount available. Great to know their are many Valentino's... More

We only come here when a group wants to get together and that is where the majority chooses to go. We personally don't come here on a family outing mainly due to the expense.

We like to stop here for lunch. Because its a buffet, it's quick. They have a great salad bar and continuously bring freshly baked pizza. They close the buffet in the afternoon at 2:00pm. That was disappointing. They open again for supper.
