A Mother’s Day farewell to original Valentino’s

Posted By: Camila Orti

If you’re from Nebraska, you know about Valentino’s pizza.

The Italian restaurant has become an institution in Lincoln and the rest of the state since it opened in 1957. On Sunday, the 35th and Holdrege location where it all began is closing its doors and relocating to a new building across the street.

Families packed the dining room for Mother’s Day, enjoying one last meal in the historic building before it is demolished.
