This is one of the best buffet's I've ever had. It's not that expensive, it was $21 for my husband and I which included a drink. The food was fresh, and they were constantly out checking to make sure it's stocked. The hostess was very friendly, and the owner was out checking on the buffet constantly and coming around talking... More

We ate with my folks on a Sunday morning at their breakfast buffet. Now before you say anything, I know your thinking breakfast (Italian Pizza Place) ..Oh yea... Awesome. Not only breakfast but a brunch offering of pizza and pastas too. The French toast was great with all the toppings and the Italian breakfast casserole was great too. Definitely a... More

By my own admission, going to a pizza buffet indicates " not looking for unique". In my case, it indicates Saturday night with granddaughters. Having said that, the variety was acceptable. Valentino's pizza is still a cut above Pizza Ranch, where my wife will never return for a visit. The hostess was friendly, which as I get older, a smile... More

We were looking forward to trying something new and a great buffet sounded like the way to go. I liked the variety of the pasta dishes, but was not a huge fan of the pizza. My husband and I prefer Pizza Ranch or Cici's Pizza to Valentino's. Macaroni casserole was great, dessert was good. But for the price we paid,... More

Valentino's has always had exceptional pizza. I think the pizza tastes better if you get it for take out however. The buffett certainly has a great selection and I strongly urge everyone to try their homemade bleu cheese dressing. When getting take out, we always order an extra pint to have on hand. Resturant is great family environment with lots... More

This is the one place we go to every time we stop in Sioux Falls ! There are no other italian buffet places in SD, so we always stop here. It helps that the food is always hot and good. I love their desert rolls and ice cream ! The lasgna is good but the meatballs are kind of tasteless-frozen... More

The food was just alright. The pizza was good. Thought the pasta didnt have much flavor. The staff was nice. Had a coupon, so thought we would try it. Dont think we would go back again.

The very first pizza I ever ate was at the original Valentino's original location in Lincoln, NE in 1957; it was exceptional then -- and it has retained it's quality through all of these years. Although the pizza wasn't served buffet style in those days (and it is better right out of the oven), we've remained customers throughout the decade.

The staff here is always VERY polite and helpful. Genuinely nice people. Restaurant is always clean even when the place is packed, and the food is constantly refilled and is hot and delicious. Only have had to wait a few times for pizza, but it is good and tends to go fast when on the buffet. They have a meeting/group... More
