Everything about Buddy V’s is top notch. Every time my wife and I come to Vegas this place is a must have. We brought our daughter and she enjoyed this place as much as we do.

Buddy V’s was our best meal in Vegas. We did so much site seeing and gambling that we ended up eating dinner twice at the 24 hour cafe on the floor at the Venetian and having late night hamburgers at Black Tap. Our last night we wanted something good and decided on the latest reservation Buddy V’s had. The staff was great and food came out quick and was perfect. I ate the entire plate of chicken Marsala and my husband almost ate his whole pizza. We each had a drink and they brought me a happy birthday dessert. The entire bill was under $70. The food, price, and service cannot be beat and our expectations were exceeded. I cannot wait to visit again and try their Sunday brunch and other items on the menu.

We had the best experience at Buddy V’s. It was the best food we have ever had! In addition, our waiter, Giorgio, was so wonderful! He has such a great personality and was really fun!

Thank you Buddy V’s for the delicious food and great customer service. We can’t wait to come back soon!

They sat us on the outside of the restaurant "patio" area...We sat down and there was no utensils on the table or napkins, they also take forever to bring us bread, then when we got our food the food was good but some of the portions were why to little for the price tag to the pint one of was did not get full, and because there was no napkins or utensil we had to keep asking for those items and because of the are that we were at we felt like outsiders, so over all there customer service was horrible...

Contrary to great reviews, we were not impressed. Seated near front entrance and we were freezing throughout meal. Took waiter over 10min to acknowledge us. Food took nearly 40min to arrive and mashed potatoes were sent back cold! Filet lacked flavor. Not impressed. Sadly disappointed.

The hostess was rude. We requested a table by the window, had to wait an extra 15 min even though we had reservations and the table requested was open. They still tried to seat us at an inside bar table. They finally gave us a table in the bar area by a window which was half by the window and half next to the waitress station. The waitress was also rude and inattentive she forgot one of our drinks and still charged us. Our food was served just warm and without any utensils. We had to ask the bus boy for utensils, napkins, and water. THIS EXPERIENCE WAS NOT WORTH $200.

I hope this was just a one time experience and they’re not like this to all their customers.

We were very happy we chose Buddy V's to dine at. The food we tried was very good and reasonably priced. The Cannoli is the best anywhere! We had the pasta with sausage and the salmon.

Fantastic! The whole experience was so special and different from everywhere else on the strip. From the wonderful live music to the service to the best spaghetti and meatballs, we cannot say enough good things about this restaurant.

Made a reservation for dinner and were seated in the lounge where we could not have a conversation. Requested a different table and were advised that we would have a half hour wait to move to a quietly location eventhough we had booked a table well in advance. However, Food was great.

We absolutely loved our time at Buddy V’s and Georgio made it so special! We will definitely be back every time we go to Vegas, and if anyone wants a good time you should request Georgio as your server. Thank you Georgio!

Excellent choice for our 34th wedding anniversary. Food was superb and we lived 5.5 years in Italy! Plus, location was perfect for our follow-on event of going to hear the Righteous Brothers. Thanks for a great evening.

I brought my family of 5 to Buddy V's hoping for a good experience. Unfortunately, the experience fell far below expectations. We arrived for an early dinner, and were told by the staff that they offered a "Sunset Menu" during that time. If we waited 15 minutes, the dinner menu would be available. That was red flag number one. 15 minutes? Let's assume my family will be sitting at the table for more than 15 minutes. Maybe we make an exception? Ok, fine, maybe not. We get seated at a table under a cold vent, and are told there are no other options available to move. Scanning the room I see numerous booths/tables available. Ok fine. We wait, and wait, and wait, and about 10 minutes later we're met by our waiter, who asks us for drink orders. He highlights the cocktails, to no surprise, and after I ordered a beer, and my wife declined a drink, he asked her if she was sure. Then, after we declined soda for our kids, he asked again, are you sure? Yikes. After another 10 minutes of waiting, my beer arrived. Then after 10 more minutes our appetizer arrived. This was getting ridiculous. So we left! This was not during a particularly busy dinner hour, there were open tables, and the waiter was ridiculous for pressuring us to order more drinks. And on top of it all. After about two minutes at the table, I noticed they started offering the dinner menu to customers. No need for us to every go back!!!

Amazing food, special Pizza was delicious, nicest pizza I’ve ever had. Only reason lost a point in service was waitress accidentally knocked over a glass of water over my fiancées jumper. Other than that service was excellent and so was good.

This restaurant exceeded my expectation. I watched Cake Boss for years and definitely felt the family atmosphere here. I was celebrating my birthday and the staff continuously said happy birthday and I received a birthday cannoli. I wish we had one closer to home in Ohio because I would definitely go back.

The waiter was in a rush to take our order and turn our table. The decor was tacky, burned out light bulbs had not been replaced, and there was dust visible on some of the decorations. The food was just okay but expensive.
