Diner Reviews
  • "This was the first time I had not ordered anything Italian at V's. The prime rib is so worth the detour from the regular menu!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We brought our son and his family (including our granddaughter) to V's last Sunday. Jeff and Kaytee loved the food and atmosphere and said they'd like to come again. Addie, our granddaughter, was captivated by the gentleman making the special pasta dishes. That alone made our day! We come to V's as much as we can for special occasions and for other reasons. It is one of our favorite dining spots. We're so glad you're in the neighborhood providing a quality place to bring family and friends for a wonderful meal and an excellent dining experience. Thanks!"

  • "Everything was terrific about our night...our waitress could have been a little more attentive considering she only had two tables. The food was fantastic, including the dessert. Good lighting and we were sitting near a man and woman who were talking about being married 53 years, 30 more than my wife and I - it was kinda cute. Overall a very fun evening."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This is an established restaurant and still lives up to their great reputation for food and the ambience. I like that you could dress in jeans to eat there or put on your most glitzy outfit and still feel comfortable."

  • "We visited this restaurant twice in the last 30 days. The first time was on Valentine's Day (big mistake to go to any restaurant without reservation) but of course, there was not enough seating so we chose to sit at a single bar table very near to the door. It was cold that day so we felt every draft when people entered and exited. There was barely enough room for our food but again, this was our fault for not reserving ahead. However, the waitress was not the best but also not the worst. My husband did not enjoy his food as mush as I enjoyed mine. The second time was for our anniversary and the seating was better but there was still a cool draft. I did not enjoy my food as much as my husband did the second time. I won't return there."

  • "I love V's. Food could have been hotter. Booth was a little crowded for the 4 of us. Good service."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Good food and atmosphere. The noise level seemed high but it may have been due to our location. Waitress seemed overly busy and checked on us once during the meal."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "V's Italiano has been in Kansas City for 50 years and it's no surprise. I hope it's here for 50 more. The service is always top notch and it's the kind of place where you feel comfortable in jeans or a ball gown. The food is incredible and the portions are generous without being ridiculous. Lunch prices are fantastic and the Thanksgiving brunch is a new hassle-free family tradition for us. My favorites are the meatballs, the prime rib sandwich, the house salad dressing and their rum cake is divine. I'm wrapping this up because I'm making myself hungry..."

  • "V's has great food, the service was great as well! Nice, clean tables. I have already told some friends about, and we are planing are next visit there. The drinks were even great too. Many wines to chose from, as well as a full service bar. The only thing I would change if I could would be the location. Just wish it was closer to us."

  • "We decided to have our Valentine's dinner a couple days late this year and noted that V's was celebrating Mrs. V's 83rd birthday. It was quite busy but service was excellent and food delicious. Mrs. V. was visiting all the diners and we had the honor of talking with her for a while and wishing her Happy Birthday.. This is a first class ristorante, we enjoy every visit"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "The food is great! Having said that: the place is great for kids. There is room for them to squirm a little and families are the mainstay of the front dining area. Want a hide-away spot for a romantic meal? Go to the back room. Really, this place has it all and you might even get a hug from Momma V!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "For the first time, we tried the build-your-own-pasta option. The chef made helpful suggestions and the results were outstanding. Combined with the pleasant setting, good company, outstanding service, and a nice Merlot, it made a perfect evening."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "My wife and I took advantage of the Birthday special, enjoying the lunch buffet, buy one, get one free. As usual the buffet had lots of Italian goodies, Caesar salad, cannelloni, ravioli, spaghetti & meatballs, etc. I was pleased to find fried chicken on the buffet, crispy on then outside, tender on the inside. Momma V was taking care of the buffet as always and we wished her a happy birthday and enjoyed a brief chat with her. We recommend this restaurant without hesitation."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "This was my wifes birthday and she gets to pick her favorite restaurant. Every year she picks V's. October is my birthday and I will select V's as I have for numerous years. The best food and the best staff I have encountered anywhere. Also, as opposed to other restaurants, when I order a drink I can actually taste the alcohol."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Everything about V's Restaurant brought back some great memories, I lived on St. Louis in an Italian neighborhood called "The Hill" where I frequented many of the neighborhood restaurants most like V's were family owned. While dining at V's I felt very welcome as if dining in someones home, the food was outstanding, service was great, and the family recipe rum cake was to die for."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "My wife and I went the day after Valentines Day. I made a reservation and the place was still packed. The food was awesome and the service was great. I would recommend V's to anyone."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We chose "V's Italiano Ristorante" for Valentine's Day, but decided to go the day after in order to miss the crowds. Our reservations were for 1:15 pm (on Sat.). We were greeted by the owner's daughter and she seated us in a quiet corner booth. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. My husband ordered Lasagna and I ordered the Fettucini Alfredo with shrimp and crab. Both came with a salad that we both chose the house Italian dressing, which was wonderful! They also brought thick slices of fresh bread (Italian and Pumpernickle) and butter. The portions were huge! The only problem I had with my dish was that the shrimp was a bit over-cooked. Other than that, it was a wonderful dining experience and will go back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "What I enjoy is that they're still an 'old world' feel restaurant. They've updated the menu as the years go by, but it still feels like a traditional Italian restaurant"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We came to V's for our Valentine's Day celebration last Friday evening. We enjoyed everything from the food to our server, Amanda. We took our time and were not rushed by anyone. We always love coming to V's for the ambience as it is quite a romantic one. That there's also wonderful service and excellent food is great! We truly enjoyed our time together Friday evening and highly recommend V's to anyone wishing to experience a wonderful dining atmosphere."

  • "We always get great service and we like the way dinner flows all the way to the complimentary rum cake"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have been customers at V's for 45+ years. Even with little children, it was a great place. Now that we are seniors, it's still the best place ever."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The ambience and food were great. It was an original italian restaurant. I went for valentines and my girlfriend said it was just like her grandma (a second generation american italian) used to make. We chose to go with their lunch buffet and it was to die for."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have been going to V's for 10yrs. The food and service is always solid. Of the 20 or 30 visits we have always had good servers and good food. It is a great date night place and we have made it a tradition to visit every valentines day. The prices are very reasonable. Although we like the ambiance, they need a good remodel to update the decor. You can clearly see they cater to an older crowd, but I would still like to see less circa 1980 surroundings. There are fancier places out there but if you want a date night with good food, service and ambiance this is a great choice."

  • "OUR DINNER WAS GREAT. bEST PRIME RIB i have ever eaten."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a night at Vee's on the evening before Valentine's Day, on February 13, 2014. We have been there quite often for a number of years, often with a larger group of people, and continue to enjoy the food, atmosphere, and service there."

  • "First time we've done the Sunday Brunch. Fabulous! Food was amazing. Their prime rib on Thursday night is great too."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "This was my first time to this restaurant. Outstanding waitress and service; excellent food. The champagne brunch was really nice. The only complaint I have is that I could easiy hear the conversation in the next booth because they were quite loud - coming out of the closet, screaming kid, disciplining kid, etc. I have a certain amount of tolerance but felt that the restaurant staff should have noticed that these people thought they were in their kitchen rather than a restaurant. I mentioned it to the waitress but she failed to do anything about it. Still, the waitress' service outweighed the failure to quiet the other patrons. Go - you will like it."

  • "Love this restaurant! An Italian restaurant not to be missed!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "i love V's! i've been eating here since i was a little kid. it's a delicious brunch spot with a buffet and made to order pasta. i also think it's reasonable for private dining. they have a separate room downstairs and it was fairly priced."

  • "We are blessed to have this long time neighborhood gem near us."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "The only thing we didn't like was where we were sitting. At a table on the right of the kitchen; lots of passers-by, and a little congested."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We did not have to wait for refills on drinks and our server, Marina, was very aware of conversations going on and letting us talk. She was very friendly and very professional. Marina was very knowledgeable of the menu and specials,etc. The restaurant staff was very accomodating with seating us as one of my parents is using a walker. This was most appreciated."
