“Sad Italian Buffet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

The salad bar was just sad and of poor quality. Kind of like a half-hearted Sizzler. I ordered a 4-cheese mini pizza which actually was okay. My daughter, who loves , placed an order for a dish of fettuccine alfredo. It was horrible. The sauce looked gross. She felt sick after eating only a little bit and the rest went to waste. 3 others in our group had the buffet - very mediocre. The whole lunch was not worth the money.

“Go somewhere else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Long wait, not enough staff to wait on tables and keep buffet full. Took long wait to get waited on and needed to go to waitress station to have drinks filled. Hated waiting for food for buffet. May as well order off the menu. Buffet was skimpy and not stocked. This is the second time I was at this location. Love Valentinos, but not this location.

“Buffet style dinning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is what you expect from Val's. Great food reasonable prices.
The restaurant is clean, with a large variety of Italian and classic favorites like nuggets and nachos.

“Bummer!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We wouldn't eat here again. We agreed that we would not eat at a Valentino's unless there was no other restaurant. Greasy fried chicken and tasteless buffet items.
