Ambiance and charm in the high plains.

Absolutely love the veal parm. Service is excellent with attentive waitstaff. Every visit is completed with a filled appetite and warm memories.

I can't understand how this has been voted best Italian in Lubbock. Frozen, lazy food is not Italian. There is rarely flavor and I have tried several things trying to give them a fair chance. The ravioli, pasta, lasagne is flavorless and not handmade. I will not ever return for this over priced processed food.

Orlando's isn't a chain and you'll know it. You won't find some of these distinctive dishes elsewhere. I have several favorites--vegetable dijon, chicken spaghetti, Wisconsin cheddar soup, green chili chicken something or other. Try some of the more common dishes too--spaghetti, rigatoni. All yummy. Have a side salad and don't miss their divine garlic bread.

The food was good. The ambience was good. Jordan, our waiter was very good. The food came fast and hot. The only thing, I will have some Italian music instead of the new noises young people call music. Some Pavarotti 's song will make it right.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We tried just Italian music once but a steady diet of it got a little overwhelming. We try to have something for everyone, all the way from the 50's to the current day. We use Pandora which does not give us total control but it is the best solution we have... More

There are many choices on the menu and after years of eating here I have yet to have a bad meal. The pasta dishes are excellent and the pizza is very good as well - the wheat crust is my favorite. They also offer delivery which is a great service.

We love Orlando's. Both locations. We have been dinning there for many years. The quality of food has never deteriorated. It's always very tasty. Pizza, pasta, all great. Our favorite is the green chicken chili linguini and Mafia queso. To die for. The service is great and the store is always clean.

There was a group of 8 of us and a baby, so we were expecting a bit of a wait on a table. We were gladly surprised to be seated immediately. The food was great all around no one had any complaints. The mafia queso was awesome. 👍🏼 Service was great but a bit slow. Overall it's definitely a place... More

We always enjoy the chance to have some good Italian food in Lubbock. The whole family can find something they like at Orlando's. The wife and daughter like the Down N Dirty Tortellini and I like the Uncle Louie's Caldo dishes. The margaritas are pretty good too.

We ended up heading to dinner pretty late. The kitchen closed at 10:00 and we got there around 9:30. The music was fun, my kids noticed the song that was playing outside the restaurant and they started dancing. The young man at the front saw my kids and he started dancing, too. It was fun from the time we waked... More

Thanks for the nice review! We've been working on the music mix a lot, trying to get some young stuff in the mix. We just upgraded the sound system too with some Bowers and Wilkins speakers. Loyd L. Turner, President, Orlando's Enterprises, Inc. More
