When anyone visits from out of town we always go to avals or get takeout because We want everyone to be able to experience the unique taste of Val's pizza. I really love the buffet for all the different options available. You can please everyone!

I grew up on Valentino's pizza. Back in the 60's we would wait an hour to get in to eat. That's because there was only one location. It is great pizza and it has always been a treat throughout the years. There are many locations...More

Moderate priced and good quality. Buffet is their calling. Grew up in this city and love their pizza. The pasta is often overlooked. The V&Z lasagna is really good. The sauce is sweet. Garlic rolls to die for and good cheese combo.

Val's has many branches in Lincoln, but if you want a buffet, go to the one on South 70th and Van Dorn St. It is pricey, but the options are unbelievable. I would say over 100 items of food to try, not only pizza, but...More
