Growing up in Lincoln, a trip to Valentino's on a visit is a must. This location on south 70th street has always had a buffet, but this one is now on steroids. In fact, you can't order off the menu here. The salad bar has always been and still is excellent. The pizza, lasagna, and pasta is excellent as always. The sauce is like no other place I have eaten pizza, it's a little sweet...it's just "Valentino's". The size of the buffet is impressive; I have to say, even aside from the deviation from what Valentino's is, the Chinese and Mexican food is mediocre, but I wouldn't expect anyplace to be able to maintain that much food on a buffet. I didn't try the seafood on the italian buffet, but the corn fritters were excellent. The dessert bar is also excellent. The service was impressive..very kid and large group friendly. People all over the place with one person "assigned" to the table to clear plates, etc. Great kid activity bags, lots of clean boosters and high chairs, balloons, and even a free token per kid to try the game to get a stuffed animal on the way out (though it is one of those claw games that is a rip-off and dissappoints the kids when they don't get anything..worse still when one of the 4 kids in the group actually does win). They were awesome and gave us lots of tries...still left with only one toy in the group. A must-do...stick to the classics for Valentino's.
