This was my second meal there in 3 days. This time I got seated outside in the hallway outside of the restaurant when there were plenty of seats available in the restaurant and it was really noisy and cold from the doors leading out to the strip. This was disappointing but the food was still good as it was the first meal.

We were very impressed with everything about this place. Starting with the very friendly servers who made us feel welcome and comfortable, like family. This was a taste of home for me, but even better. Everything was delicious in the Sunday brunch. The decor was appropriate to good Italian family kitchens. We followed up with an take home order from Carlo’s across the way. We are already planning our next visit to Buddy V’s!

We had Sunday Brunch at Buddy V's. Overall, it was fine and we enjoyed the meal but it was nothing to go crazy over. For the price, you might be better off paying a little more and going to one of the nice casino buffets. This brunch didn't offer any seafood other than peel and eat shrimp. There was no omelette station. In terms of eggs, they just had prepared scrambled eggs. They were good but no other egg options. The desserts could have been better considering this is Cake Boss' place. Tiramisu was pretty good but everything else I tried was standard.

My husband and I ate here while on vacation & we were happy with our meals. We went with the recommendation from our waitress and started with the appetizer grandma’s meatballs. My husband had the chicken rigatoni alla vodka & I had my mother-in-law’s capellini shrimp scampi. It was great but just not the best we’ve had. Still very good. We would come back for more. Forgot to take pics of the meatballs cuz we were so hungry!

Unfortunately somewhat below expectations based on previous reviews. We waited a while to be seated which was fine - unfortunately the waiting continued into the evening with extremely long gaps between the waitress turning up at the table. She also completely forgot one dish, which I asked her about after one particularly long wait, and a garlic bread having turned up instead. The dishes were tasty, with the mains I had being rather salty and with way overdone proscuitto but overall satisfactory. The creme brulee was exceptional. $10 each for a soda/juice combo drink with a lot of ice seemed a little excessive. Would not return here, although walking around the Venetian was lovely.

Cena con amigos o pareja, comida riquísima, excelente atención, carta de vinos de primera, el ambiente es acogedor y la decoración esta muy agradable con detalles Italianos, pasta, pizza ingredientes que te recuerdan entre otras cosas a Italiana, la vista hacia el Blvd Las Vegas no tiene precio, claro debes solicitar ventana de ser posible para poder apreciarla mejor.

First time I have ever been here yet it felt so welcoming. The place was lively & bursting with energy you can here the cooks communicating with each other & the people right next to you are so close you can ease drop on their convo. However it still felt personal, especially with my Wife & I celebrating valentines. We were greeted & served right away. The food was Exquisite & right to the point. We felt right at home & there was not a second that went by where we felt unattended. The only down size was us not having enough room for dessert at the end. I was quite satisfied & will be coming back for another meal.

Loved that I was able to reserve a table for our party of 7 the same day via on-line app. I forgot to set up for my sister-in-la’s wheelchair, but was able to do that by phone about 15 minutes ahead of our reservation.
The food was superb - we all enjoyed the bread at the beginning and our meals were fantastic!
We all agreed that the next time we’re in Vegas - Buddy V’s will be a place we will return to for food and atmosphere!

We went to Buddy V’s to celebrate my 25th birthday. From the cakes and pastries on display in front of their beautiful open kitchen to the rustic finishes on the light fixtures Buddy V’s decor and ambience are very welcoming and makes for a memorable evening!
The drinks, food and service were exceptional and we will definitely be coming back!

Linguine and clams was good, but portion measly. Smashed meatball sub wasn't smashed at all. The caprese salad was weak and not worth sixteen bucks.
