Had my husbands birthday get together here and they did a great job with us. The food is always outstanding. White perch is amazing and addicting. It brings you back again and again and again. My parents love fish and have been eating it for 80 years said that it's the best they've had. That's saying a lot. And you... More

Ok guys, the hot wings are PHENOMENAL. Crunchy, spicy, really great. They had Bell's Hopslam available, so they know their beer. Took me 6 years of living here, my fiance 8, to finally visit this place and we immediately regret that. A gem, a complete gem.

Let me begin by saying this place has really good food. Unfortunately if you're like me and have sensitivity issues with cigarette smoke it can be a problem. They do have a non-smoking section but it is small, REALLY SMALL. This place is a bar and the bulk of it is a smoking section. Get there early and you might... More

As the title says, this is Valparaiso’s hidden gem. Valparaiso has its fair share of “trendy” eateries that seem to come and go . The revitalized downtown is overpopulated with them. Semento’s’ on the other hand has been around for more than fifty years It’s a family-run operation, now in its fourth generation. They’ve got it down pat! There’s not... More

My boyfriend and I went there on Saturday afternoon for a few drinks and dinner. We started off with the artichoke spinach dip. For $6.50 you got maybe a half a cup of dip that was very very bland. It could have used some garlic and salt to give it more of a flavor. For our meals I ordered a... More

Stopped in tonight for the first time. Started our meal with spinach and artichoke dip.I ordered a John Wayne burger and my husband got prime rib. All three were excellent. My burger was juicy and his prime rib had excellent flavor. Our server was covering the bar (12-15 patrons) plus 5 other tables. She was amazing. We never waited long... More

The food is a delicious surprise and the portions are generous. We chose to dine in the no-smoking room and received very attentive service. Who knew this local "bar" had such yummy food and sweet servers??

Marmac630, So glad you came in and enjoyed your meal. Many people are surprised when they come in. We have been here for over 70 years, and many Valpo residents don't know about us. Hope you return soon, next time ask for Tony or Robin, we would love to stop by your table and say hi. More

We walked into the bar and were blasted with smoke. I forgot there are still bars with smoking indoors! No matter. The service is friendly, the beer is cold, and the food is good. I had the meat lasagna which comes with yummy thin slices of garlic bread and a mixed greens salad. My fiancé had the stuffed manicotti with... More

Description
Semento's Napoli Cafe is a local family owned business since 1939. We have a full menu with huge portions. From Sandwiches, bar appetizers, and dinners to seafood. We also have large selection of beer and liquor choices. Our seating capacity is quite large and we can handle large groups for well. ( Advance notice is always helpful for groups over 10). We have huge deck for a outside seating. Late this June we will be opening our new outdoor Beer Garden, Villa Court. We will have Bocce Ball and shuffleboard courts, Bags and horseshoes, and an outdoor seating area with a bar. We offer a shuffle board table, dart boards, Mega touch machine and more. We also have a Non smoking dining room with a separate entrance on the East side of the building, with a handicap ramp. Since we DO allow smoking in the bar room no minors are allowed in any section of the building. We cater to all walks of life! Great for dinner, and also for late night fun! We have a full wait staff to make sure you have a relaxing evening. "Why don't you come to our house for dinner!"
