We stopped in while we were visiting Jodi's family in Lincoln. When we pulled up, we tried to find a handicapped spot. They were full, and there were very limited spots. Even though we parked quite aways away from the restaurant, there weren't adequate wheelchair ramps on the sidewalks, so it took us awhile to find one. There needs to be more sidewalk ramps available than just the one. There was a small wait but not bad. We would advise calling ahead, just in case. The seating was ok being in a wheelchair. We were seated in a main aisle, so I can get up to the table. The only complaint on this is people's chairs are pushed out in the aisles or people sitting out in the aisle, but they were quick to move so I could get by. The choices of food were endless. It was interesting to find they had everything from Mexican to American fare, and of course Italian. I have never been to a restaurant where I can have all you can eat ravioli with heavy meat sauce. Jodi liked everything but the corndogs she said there was too much corn not enough dog, but hey its Nebraska. Christopher had his favorite obsession...MEATBALLS, and Jonathan liked the ice cream where you can choose your flavor. If you cannot find something here that has your taste, then you need to keep looking at all the choices. The staff was very kind and helpful, they were quick to move a candy machine that was in the way exiting. So, if you're in the mood for Italian or some decent comfort food, then we recommend stopping in to Valentino's Grand Italian Buffet. http://familyfriendlyoutings.blogspot.com/
I don't know what it is about Yiayias bartenders but it seems to be a requirement to be lazy, uninformed and annoying, and look like you sleep under a bridge. Like the other reviewer said, they have exactly no knowledge of the beer selection.The response to my asking for a certain beer is "Do you see it anywhere man?". I'm not there for a hunting expedition! I'm there to have a drink and have someone other than myself fetch it. What part of that is complicated? They need a alphabetized list so they can find a beer fast. Since the owner is a very nice guy who cares about his business I don't know why he lets this go on unless these people just intimidate him, or he's had so much worse that he's settled on devils he knows instead of devils he doesn't know. As for table service, forget it. If you sit at a table you can count on getting your own beer. That said, the pizza there is pretty good. The vegetarian selections are great and very tasty, especially since I'm not a vegetarian, I just got stuck eating there with one! The one thing I do not understand though is the piece of crusty bread with the pizza. What the heck is that all about? Lincoln is the only place I've ever seen this done. Put more topping on the pizza's and scrap the unnecessary bread. If you're old you will feel very old and out of place here. This is the hangout of the tatted up and pierced crowd and to be over 25 in here will make you feel your age. Go anyway, drink some of their great imported (but overpriced) beers, and make them uneasy. It's your life too!
Isles Pizza is probably one of the best-kept secrets in the Lincoln metro. Their pizza is fabulous regardless of which type you get; however I'm partial to their "Leaning Tower of Pizza," the name for their own super combination. Their pizza crust is very much like Valentino's USED to be; that is before they got so large and automated. Their biggest drawbacks are: 1) they don't deliver (unless you have it delivered by Metro Dining Delivery), and 2) they have limited hours. Remember too that the Isles is for the most part a pub and not primarily a pizza restaurant, so the atmosphere definitely reflects that. If you get a pizza from the Isles, you definitely won't be disappointed!
