Garlic bread was good, ceasar salad was good, but the lasagna was dry and needed more cheese....

Food was delicious! Service was great. Wait staff is always on top of it with assuring your drinks are never empty and keep it clean.

Best Italian food on the strip. Our service was excellent, and our view of the strip was my favorite.

Loved everything about Buddy V! We know it is Vegas, but maybe a little on the spendy side. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

The ravioli was great -add Italian sausage to it!! The lighting was bright and not intimate. The server was nice but seemed overwhelmed. We found a nice intimate bar inside the palazzo that seemed more our vibe and kinda wished we stayed there instead of going to buddy’s - but it was good just more family style.

We expected chain restaurant cuisine but were overwhelmed with the homemade pasta bolognese. Yum! Paired with calamari, Caesar salad (polenta croutons to die for) and Chianti, perfecto. Would definitely go back!

We went to Buddy V’s for a birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint! The ambience is fun, and the booths are comfy and cute. Our pasta dishes were delicious (maybe a little overpriced), but VERY filling. Skip on an appetizer because you’ll want room for dessert- the cannoli was deadly :) and they wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on the plate!

Great food and service but our table was facing the staff and next to the kitchen... noisy and chaotic, probably the worst table in the restaurant. Food was good and service was excellent.

Got more service from the busser than I did from waiter. Waiter brought alcohol drink out before food when a special request was asked to bring drinks with food. Ended up with a flat warm beer with my meal by the time food was brought. I told the other person who brought the drink that I asked for it with food. He said ok and walked away handing it to server who forced it on me and stated food was coming right out which didn’t come until 25 minutes after. Server was pushy and kept insisting on ordering drinks and appetizers when I clearly said no thank you. Wouldn’t come back here

Food was good, excellent service. It is a bright lit place, so not much ambiance for date- lots of families. Modern loud “music” good for the young hard-of-hearing crowd.

The service and waiters were the best and are enough reason to come back. The food serving was very small for me but understandable. Same with the appetizers, I ordered garlic cheese bread and you only get 3 pieces for like $12. The food was good though nothing extra special but it’s a good experience and a nice place. No complaints. Just up your quantity to go with your high quality service

We came here to have a Sunday Buffet Style Brunch only to find out that they don’t do this any longer due to the current COVID situation, which makes sense obv. but we would have appreciated it if there would have been clear information about this as nothing on the internet states that they no longer to this anymore. So we had to order a la carte and the food was good, nothing to complain about. The waiter was very friendly and fast and the ambiance is cozy.
I’ve came here for dinner too a few times and I got to say that my preference goes out to the dinner menu.
Ps. The Cannoli is just too good.

Best night imaginable! We enjoyed a delicious meal, but what really put the experience over the top was the 5 star service which we received. Giorgio was the most magnanimous host, his recommendations were spot-on, and his genuine warmth and conviviality made this a night to remember!

We had an amazing time. My husband is very selective when it come to Italian restaurants (as he used to work in his younger years at one fine Italian place in LA) and he liked it very much. Waiter and servers were very attentive and explained the menu and its variations.
Food was good and very well presented.

Quite possibly the best lasagna I’ve ever had. Bonus- eating here gets you access to a few of the great cake boss desserts that others are waiting in line for across the hall at Carlos.

Decided to make a reservation here for me and my husbands anniversary of when we first met. I wrote it on the special requests and asked for a table with a view and they exceeded my expectations. From the staff to the food and even the ambience, this place had it all. Our server Joana was amazing and made our night memorable. The food was excellent and I can’t wait to go back and try other menu items!

Food was delicious and good value. We had to ask for bread and water refills on multiple occasions and to different servers in order for them to pay attention to us. That was annoying but it really great place, we will be back

We were here during Covid precautions so this may not be a completely fair review. I thought the food was good, not great. My kids loved it, however and they were very happy with the experience. Server was abrupt. Secondary servers for bread, etc were very friendly.
