“Lincoln's best local pizzaria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Valentino's has been a Lincoln original since I was a little girl growing up here. They've expanded a lot from their 1st store off 35th & Holdrege and the quality of their food is still excellent! The pizza here is hand tossed crust, nicely in between thin and thick. The sauce is a little sweet, but is very distinctive of this restaurant. The toppings are very fresh and generously applied. I recommend asking for your pizza baked "well done" to get the cheese brown and bubbly. Their pastas and salads are great too, but you can't beat their pizza - best in the city!!

“Best Italian in Lincoln by far.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Pizza here can't be beat. Most Lincolnites love the buffet. My family is hooked on the "Special" pizza for take out. The best combination pizza around.

“so so”

I think for the price you pay is what you get. Its it or miss sometimes it is really good and sometime it is really bad. I choose not to gamble with my money or my time.

“Good Variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

They have many choices. I do however miss the chocolate chip cookie bars they use to have and the tomoto salad. But they have many choices that allows me to have a good meal. I do feel the prices are a little high. value wise I would only go on special occaisions. Cost and value don't really compute Drink prices are very high.

“enjoy 35th and Holdrege before it's gone to the wrecking ball”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Best to order off the menu if you like sausage pizza..it doesn't appear on their buffet. Being razed in 2013 to move to a new site across the street in one of the parking lots. May not feel the same.
