The service was impeccable. The food, not so much. I got the bone in veal parm, which I had before, but was burnt on the bottom this time. My wife was done with her meal by the time my reorder arrived. The reorder was good but the experience was lacking as their response was impersonal. Not sure if we will go back. Good but not great.

Excellent service, very attentive staff. Ambience was nice but quite loud. Food left a lot to be desired. Obviously prefrozen and prebreaded chicken pieces for the parmigiana. Wont be returning there.

Excellent location in the beautiful Venetian, great service, excellent food. A little expensive - $80 for my wife and myself and we had no alcohol and water with our meal. However, certainly not the most expensive restaurant on the strip. We would definitely go back.

Everything was quiet well, my only inconvenience was that we asked the waitress before ordering how were the plates served? Particularly the pastas, and she told us that they were individual servings that only the lasagna was on the large size for sharing. When the dishes arrived we were stunned at how large they were! Not individual servings at all! We were a large group of 10 and almost everyone ordered their own pasta dish, so it was a lot of food! And of course so wasteful. Aside from that, the restaurant is very nice and the food is very good authentic italiano!
I would recommend it, just order to share!

The food and service were very nice. Tough to have an intimate dinner due to the noise but thats unavoidable. Restaurant layout and design. We like Buddy’s and will be back. The bake shop across the hallway is awesome.

We had a great time here while we enjoyed happy hour before our show. Happy hour is in the bar only and it does not mention this. I feel like they could have better advertisement on that. Very cute decor.

Found hair in my food. I felt the waiter didn't believe me. So much noise I couldn't hear the staff and they wouldn't speak up when told them I couldn't hear them. Management didn't even acknowledge issues with the food. Drinks had to be ordered twice.

I booked buddies a good 8 months in advance. The food was fabulous. Staff friendly. Atmosphere was great. My only issue was service. This had nothing to do with the staff who actually worked very hard. It was more to do with the number of staff on duty. I had to wait quite long for everything I needed and had to constantly get staffs attention for more drinks, dessert menu etc.

Booked a table for my 21st birthday 2 months in advance and loved it! It was a busy night and we got our table early. Waitress was very nice as was everyone. The food was also great and they served my birthday cake from the bakery across the hall! Would definitely recommend!

Came for Sunday brunch. Food was very tasty and great price compared to other places in the area. Only wish they had more pasta choices. The shrimp cocktail was delicious and very fresh. Loved the tomato soup. Wish I could have some more!

Amazing buffet brunch on a Saturday. Many options spread out around the restaurant so that there was never a wait or too many people in one place. Everything from the roasted peppers to chicken parm was amazing. Would highly recommend and can't wait to return.

We stopped in for Saturday brunch and they put on a decent buffet with bottomless mimosas. The car very is a little bit hidden but the meats were cooked to perfection. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the frittata and the cheese selection was just ok. But otherwise everything was delicious from the hearty Mac and cheese to the shrimp and the desserts. I would definitely go back. Not bad value if you go with the mission of filling up for the day!

Awesome Italian food. Portions too large and no way to bring leftovers home in Vegas. Reduce portion size and prices accordingly. Best part.. warm croutons on cessation salad.
