Always good! No surprises!!!!

Orlando's has been in Lubbock for many years. I don't consider their food authentic Italian, but Tex-Italian. Nevertheless it is always good. Their salads are always very fresh and crisp and their garlic bread is great. The Green Chicken Alfredo is my favorite..

I do not eat pizza and I am never interested in Italian food restaurants, so I was less than excited when we decided to try Orlando's. I quickly changed my mind. We experienced great service and the food was a fantastic surprise. The Mafia Dip and chicken spaghetti were so good and I could have put away several baskets of... More

So I gave Orlando's a second chance because anyplace can have a bad night and it wasn't any better. The first time I went I asked for the most popular dish and was very disappointed no flavor and the whole experience was less than expected and thought I was done. However everyone I know loves the place so I really... More

I have had better lasagna many other places. The Mafia dip for an appetizer was very good. I like lasagna noodles and there was hardy any noodles at all. Boo Hoo Hoo!

Sorry about the noodle-less lasagna. Might have been the last piece in the pan but that's no excuse. I know we sell a LOT of lasagna and it a favorite of many. Please give us another try soon, and maybe try a Green Chile Chicken Pizza for a change of pace! Thanks for letting us know about the issue. Loyd... More

I think I have tried almost the entire menu and nothing has yet to disappoint. Several dishes are my favorite. Amazing & delicious food, Awesome service and cool atmosphere. Great place for a romantic dinner, out with friends or co-workers. Come hungry & leave full. :-)

This place is great! I have eaten here a few times and brought my boyfriend just the other day for lunch on our way home. And as I had experienced in the past, the food was wonderful! I hadn't tried the pizza before so we ordered a medium and split it. I had the veggie supreme and he had cheese.... More

Had dinner here on a recommendation by the hotel staff. Cute local restaurant. Really good Italian food. Very friendly wait staff. Looked like mostly local folks eating here which is always a good sign. Worth checking out.

Service was pleasant and quick. Food was OK, not stellar. Friday nights were very, very noisy and quite busy. Arrive before 5:00 if you don't want to wait. Reasonable prices.

Trendy? That's very flattering, as we've been in business in Lubbock since 1965! The owners are Texas Tech graduate so we've always tried to be relevant to the young people, since there are probably 40,000 college students of various schools in town. We try to be fun, friendly, and keep the place clean, all of which tend to generate large... More
