Wonderful, clean, well kept up Buffet! We were in town 3 days and ate here twice! Their Cheese Sticks were top notch! Sandwiches are terrific also! They have a "Regular" size and a "Super" size. Trust me the "Regular" size is more than enough!

After driving 6 hours, this was the first restaurant we visited on our KY trip. A bit pricey ($50 for 2 adults/3 kids), but the buffet allowed the kids to eat as much as they wanted. The food was excellent (definitely get the lasagna), and it was a great place to sit and recuperate after a long drive.

Really well prepared Italian dishes, as well as pizzas, calzones, a pizza buffet and other menu items. Dough is scratch made on premises. You do not order at your table, you sit, peruse the menu, select your choices, and then approach the front counter to place your order and get your cups and salad bowls, if you select their nice...

We were pretty disappointed with our dinner experience - from the actual ordering process through to the taste of the food. Whether the girl who answered the phone had worked a long shift or was just having a bad day, or simply has terrible customer service skills, it came through on the phone. She chastised me for trying to order... More

We were looking for a place to eat dinner after a long day of driving and went to Turtelini's following a recommendation from a local person. There was a good-looking pizza buffet but the four of us took individual dinners. The chicken carbonara and lasagna were very good. The salad bar was good, offering more than just lettuce and salad... More

It's a small town and our choices were limited and Turtlelini's was the closest. We were greeted by a friendly young woman, who explained their buffet and gave us menus with a list of homemade pasta dishes. I chose a Caribbean pizza which was outstanding! It made me wish I was hungry enough to try the lasagna or spaghetti. My... More

After a long drive and all of us hungry, we were directed to Turtlelini's for a good Italian buffet and ala cart menu and drinks. All six ordered differently sausage, pasta, pizza, The Sicilian, and Lasagna. Very good sauce like my moms and cannoli's almost as good as my moms.

I had dinner at Turtlelini's Pizza and Pasta last night and decided to go with their 'All you can eat' $7.99 (plus tax, of course) pizza, pasta and salad and was glad I did. The pasta choice was limited to a simple tomato sauce to match with the spaghetti pasta, so I didn't bother. Instead, I focused on the pizza,... More
