Over priced ,SMALL portions,not worth the wait .Go to Maggiano's across the street way better food.I feel that $16 for a 20oz Peroni beer is ridiculous.This place is not even as good as a Carrabba's.

Amazing place and delicious food, I love to visit on weekends for the Jazz Brunch, book ahead to guarantee your table though. Tomato soup and mamas meatballs are a must.

Server was fantastic and had a great knowledge of wine. We ordered one of the cheaper bottles and he said it was fine and said he is on a budget too. Food was above average but not like NYC Italian food. Bartender makes a great Old Fashion. Good value and experience. I would recommend and return next time we are in town

We dined here before the Atomic Saloon Show. The chicken parm and spaghetti was perfect and the serving very generous. The scallops were good but nothing special. Bonus was a two piece band doing Sinatra tunes and bonus 2 a table by the window overlooking the Strip.
It’s not the fanciest place but recommended for good Italian.

We ordered Caesar salads to start. They were disgusting. Iceberg lettuce, very little dressing, very little Parmesan. And the croutons tasted stale. For our entres we ordered a fettuccine Alfredo, and the carbonara. However we never received our meals. After we waited 45 minutes and watched numerous tables seated after us eat and leave we complained to our waitress. She really had no reasoning as to the wait so we left. This really was a shame as we had eaten a wonderful meal at buddy v’s last year for our annual couples weekend. We won’t be back after this though.

Not a place for a peacful dinner. This is a flip flop and t-shirt place with overpriced food and drinks. A couple drinks and some food came out to $225. Food was good, but service was lousy. No more Buddy V's for me.

We were in Las Vegas for fun. We heard the lasagna was to die for. The rumors are right. The lasagna was outstanding. We split the portion and it was the perfect size.

An amazing experience all around. We went to Sunday brunch. There was a live jazz performer. The food was SO good!!!! Great variety! Our server was very attentive!!! A whole separate kids food table. If you like noisy Mary’s-there is a create your own area. Very cool!!

A little disappointed with the food this time. This is one of our Vegas favorites and the food was subpar to every other visit we have had. Panzanella served without any croutons and the wrong dressing, cannolis weren’t up to standard as well. We look forward to this restaurant on every visit but may have to reconsider in the future.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere! The meatball pasta was just the right amount of food, the sauce had a hint of spice and along with five meatballs! The lobster tail for dessert was way beyond what I expected! Absolutely worth trying and taking a few home with you from the Carlo’s Bakery across the way from the restaurant!

This was not our first visit so we knew exactly what to expect and why we came back! I have dietary restrictions; one main issue is that I am severely gluten intolerant. The gluten-free pasta was amazing! I chose to have the shrimp scampi and the flavors were perfect, the pasta was cooked perfectly and it was probably the best gluten-free pasta dish I have enjoyed for the past 13 years. I shared the arugula salad and switched up the dressing and that was equally amazing. Overall, the food, the atmosphere and the service were incredible. Coming back our next visit to Las Vegas.

Food was amazing!
Loved the atmosphere with the family theme to the restaurant, only negative comment would be our server being very pushy and was upgrading meals we ordered by speaking to our children ( ages 9 & 8!) and overriding what we the parents were saying we wanted to order for them. Felt he was very pushy to get us to upgrade or change our orders to something else more expensive.
