Fantastic pasta and sauces. The pomodoro and Carbonara sauces were incredibly delicious! Service was great and ambiance was very nice. Wish we had left room for dessert.

Food was fantastic and nice portions. The croutons on the ceasar salad were absolutely delicious. I'm only sorry we couldn't go twice while in Vegas.

Brought the family here and it was clear that the server did not want to serve us because I’m Asian. I observed other guests and nobody received the poor service that we did, the server even tried to argue with me about room charging it. I will not be back again.

The location is nice but the food was not impressive. The pizza even tasted like burnt plastic.

Everything from the high energy atmosphere to the incredible food to the outstanding service made this our BEST dinner for this trip to Vegas. Would highly recommend everyone try it...and don't skip dessert! Totally worth it!

Enjoyed the restaurant with regard to
ambience and food quality .
Our meals were good and the person Carlos , who was helping with water and other items was superb. I can’t say enough about him and his professionalism . He should have been our waiter and not the Italian server who was rather manipulative and pushing his agenda . Not personable.
Another issue was the entree arrived while we were eating our appetizer .
Felt rushed even though it wasn’t packed

Ate dinner before a show at The Venetian. Decided on Buddy V’s after looking online. Had a little difficulty locating restaurant from Main Lobby of hotel but once there - very pleased! Delicious food and very attentive waiter. In and out with time to spare before show. Would definitely go back!

We went to Buddy V’s on Friday night. We had a wonderful waiter. The portions are huge! If you don’t have a big appetite split a meal. It also is very noisy. I’m Italian so pretty picky about my Italian food. I had Osso Bucco and it was great. I had went to the Cake Boss bakery in NJ so wanted to try this restaurant. It’s a little difficult to find even once you get to the hotel.

We had a reservation but traffic was horrendous (we are local). They were initially asking us to wait but we had tickets to a show and couldn't wait for them. Our hostess moved a few things and they were able to accommodate. We informed our waitress that we had 45 min to eat and run. She was awesome. Got our food in and out quickly. Food was well prepared and everyone enjoyed (4 of us). We had 4 very different entrees and all were awesome. Cheese Ravioli, Veal Marsala, Eggplant Parm and lastly the Scallops over palenta. Awesome place. We will be back with more time. Highly recommend.

This was our 2nd trip to Buddy V's restaurant and we LOVE it so much! It will not be our last. The meatballs are to DIE for as are the sausages (I don't usually even like sausages)! The lobster tail is also a must. Can't wait to be back.

Loved the atmosphere and the food was phenomenal. Would definitely eat here again. The menu was a little pricey and I wish the main course would have included a small salad without having to purchase one on the side for $11 but this is Vegas so what do you expect?

There are two dishes that you just have... the eggplant Parmesan and the shrimp scampi! Incredible! The cannoli for desert was tasty too. My husband had the chicken Parmesan and the meatballs ...it was okay.

Started with a lovely cocktail, but can’t remember the name. Bread was delicious, I knew it would be a good dipper for my meal. We had a Caesar, love it when I can taste just a hint of anchovy. The polenta croutons were a little strange, though. Croutons should be crunchy, these weren’t. I order clams and linguini at every Italian restaurant I go to. This was outstanding. Probably about a dozen clams in the shell, and they were cooked perfectly. The broth was flavorful, and yep, the bread soaked it up very nicely. The waiter offered red pepper flakes, and I used just enough to give it a nice zing. My husband had the chicken parm, which came with two breasts and spaghetti, with a tasty pomodoro sauce on top. He said it was delicious. Dessert was tiramisu, again delicious. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. And the piano bar was an added bonus. If I lived in Las Vegas, I would eat here weekly. And get the same meal!

Food was really good. Wine selection so-so. Very loud and lack of any kind of privacy. Tables close together. Would not recommend for a date unless you’re into that ambiance. Food was very good. I had the Sunday Gravy dish. Meat was tender and flavorful. Sauce/gravy was very good.
