I ordered shrimp scampi and my wife ordered the roasted vegetarian pasta. Our food was very salty. We thought maybe its only salty at the top so we tried mixing the pasta but same thing. We are truly disappointed at the quality of food. We did not want to be rude so we told the waitress we are full and to pack our food to go.

Such a nice restaurant! Food was great for value. I would totally recommend. We were sitting just next to the band, which was still fine because they were playing ambiance music. Excellent.

Chicken Parm was amazing as was the Bread and dipping oil. Two big chicken cutlets were crispy on the outside and tender inside plus side of spaghetti would have been enough to share. Server was attentive from beginning to end of meal. Desserts were delish but couldn’t finish after the rest of the meal! Definitely a place to return to on future trips!!

Great food, great cocktails! One person in our group was keto and was able to find something on the menu for her and not feel left out! She didn’t have that luck at other restaurants, she had to modify things elsewhere.

I have dined at Buddy V’s several times and had good experiences. This most recent visit was incredibly disappointing especially since we were there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The service was slow and the food was not good. Our Caesar salad was served with warm lettuce and bland dressing, our entrees took so long it was served as though our server forgot to enter them, and they all came out lukewarm at best. One friend ordered chicken Marsala which didn’t have any marsala flavor at all, it just tasted of brown gravy. Another friend ordered eggplant parmigiana of which she maybe ate four bites because it was so tasteless. I ordered the chicken piccata which needed more flavor and was borderline cold. When I complained to the manager, it seemed to set off a lot of conversation and staring at us not knowing quite what to do. Eventually one manager took over serving our table. I know she tried to make it better, but at that point we just wanted to be done so we could get on with our evening. I had mentioned that we were there celebrating my friend’s birthday and the manager promised a grand dessert. Really my friend just wanted a cannoli. They brought out the birthday platter with the sparkler atop the layer cake. It was pretty, but none of it tasted good. The cake was too sweet, the cookies were stale, I’ve never seen anything like that happen to marshmallows for Smore‘s before, and overall it was completely unimpressive especially for a chef known for baking. We were all completely disappointed plus we were there for almost two miserable hours. Buddy needs to visit that location more frequently to keep things in line. The manager did try to make it better and also comped our entrees, but it was not worth the time or aggravation. Enrique, our busboy, had grade A hustle and deserves a promotion. I go to Vegas a few times a year and will not be going back to Buddy V’s anytime soon.

Loved the variety at the breakfast buffet and service staff was super friendly. The price was a bit much and definitely a lot more than expected, but the experience was pleasant. A good way to start the morning.

not all items rated equal....
the caesar salad was outstanding
especially with the extra anchovies.
focaccia bread yummy too.
the pasta with clams was a nice
size portion with lots of clams but
the sauce was nothing special.
good coffee too. fair price point
for hotel food. $51 including tip
for these 3 items.
would recommend!

Food was great other than the lasagna that I ordered was not hot. It was warm but not hot and there was, I guess, some confusion on the cost of substituting an item on our order but other than that it was good.

My wife and I were blown away by this place! I chose this spot because most of the other Italian restaurants on this side of the Strip are $$$$. Prices at BV's are quite reasonable (for the Vegas Strip). They were running a great $40 Prix fixe 3 course menu when we were there. Simply the best Italian meal I've had in ages! Simple, perfectly cooked, quality ingredients. Everything we had, from the Caesar and panzanella salads to the pasta alfredo and orechiette & sausage were spot on. My wife kept saying " I can actually taste the pasta!" Yes, that's right folks...homemade, perfectly cooked al dente pasta that you can actually taste! To celebrate our wedding anniversary, they presented us with a beautiful dessert plate. I can assure you the cannoli and tiramisu are out of this world! Service was also impeccable! I'm certain you can pay more at other fine dining Italian restaurants in the area, but you honestly can't get any better than BV's!

We came to Buddy’s a couple of years ago but I was unwell & couldn’t enjoy the experience so I was keen to return when we came back to Vegas and it didn’t disappoint!
The focaccia was delicious, and the garlic bread was buttery and thick. I had lasagne which was delicious and large enough that I struggled to eat it and couldn’t manage dessert. My husband had carbonara which was wonderful. They had a band playing which was a little on the loud side but it was a nice atmosphere.
We will have to return next time for dessert!!

Buddy V's was DELICIOUS! I had Grandma's meatballs, chicken parm, and cannoli. My husband had the panzanella, My dad's bucatini carbonara, and the tiramisu. EVERYTHING was wonderful! The lunch Express menu had great options for a good value. I am definitely going back to try more items! Ambiance was relaxing and staff was friendly!
