Not a place you want to visit if you crave real Italian. The service is great. The waitress are there right away to refill your drink. The bad... It's all generic. Pizza is dry most of the time. Noodles (spaghetti) is done right. Canned meat sauce. Canned marinara sauce. You don't have your own parmesan or pepper dispenser at your... More

This is a great place to go with the family. They have lots of different choices and I think their food has gotten better and better. The service is wonderful!

If you are looking for a family restaurant all you can eat. I would suggest Valentino's restaurant. When we went in Saturday night they were serving Italian, Chicken, Taco's for dinner. Very friendly & fast service.

Our service here was very good, however the food was just ok. The chicken and the deserts on the buffet were good but they lacked in the cleanliness department and the food was warm, not hot and it was just opening when we got there. Table clothes were worn and pepper shakers filthy.

Salad bar is awesome but the rest of the food is more like the Italian your non Italian mama tried to make. Family friendly food is adequate. Not memorable

Its alright. We dine here frequently due to the affordable buffet. Although sometimes they're not busy enough to keep all the buffet fresh all the time. Maybe adjust how much you put out until you know you'll be getting customers in. Keep it available , just not as much so you can serve fresher food.

My kids had never had Valentinos pizza. I told them when I was growing up in Norfolk we had to drive out of town to get it. They really liked it.

This is the biggest disappointment for Valentinos! I am very surprised the company allows it to operate like it is. The buffet is very small with not much of a selection. The meat for the tacos looks like dog food. It felt a little dirty/messy at the buffet as well. As many times as someone went back & forth to... More
