When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore. I are more than a little in "amore" (love in Italian) with the newest concept from Nebraska favorite Valentino's; this location includes sit down table service rather than the usual buffet and carry out options. Plus, there's so much more than just pizza at the Valentino's Ristorante located in Lincoln near 28th and Pinelake.
