Small menu. Good food. My buddy and I ordered the big boss veal meal which was 45 each. After my buddy ordered it the waiter talked me into ordering that as well. Way to much food. Very large cut of meat waiter should of told my buddy and I to split it instead of telling me to get my own. Like it is truly too much food for one person.

We had the garlic bread (ooh so delicious!), Caesar salad (yummy), Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken (excellent), chicken parmigiana (excellent), and the Italian birthday cake (splendid)! We have eaten here several times for my sister’s birthday and it never disappoints!

Great experience! We wanted something with windows, and Buddy V's has that. great natural light. Our server Daniel was awesome. High energy and great with recommendations on food and wine. Loved the atmosphere and all the food was amazing. The meat and cheese tray was soooo good, and the meatballs are amazing. I would come back.

We sat at the bar. They serve warm bread that has a nice crunch on the outside and sift and flavorful on the inside. Danny, the bartender, was excellent. Shrimp scampi and linguini was decent.

My husband and I started out the night with cheesy garlic bread and meatballs for appetizers. Both were so good! His main course was the Sunday Gravy. It was a very big portion and he enjoyed it tremendously. My entree was shrimp scampi and it was SOOOO good! We topped it off by sharing a connoli for dessert. Everything was great! It was probably our favorite meal while in Vegas. We also had great service by everyone. We look forward to returning!

Our party ordered Lasagna, Chicken parmigiana, and Chicken Piccata. All three entrees were outstanding! Service was great! This was our 2nd visit to Buddy V's and this trip was as great as the first. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be returning next time we are in Las Vegas.

The ravioli was great -add Italian sausage to it!! The lighting was bright and not intimate. The server was nice but seemed overwhelmed. We found a nice intimate bar inside the palazzo that seemed more our vibe and kinda wished we stayed there instead of going to buddy’s - but it was good just more family style.

We expected chain restaurant cuisine but were overwhelmed with the homemade pasta bolognese. Yum! Paired with calamari, Caesar salad (polenta croutons to die for) and Chianti, perfecto. Would definitely go back!

We went to Buddy V’s for a birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint! The ambience is fun, and the booths are comfy and cute. Our pasta dishes were delicious (maybe a little overpriced), but VERY filling. Skip on an appetizer because you’ll want room for dessert- the cannoli was deadly :) and they wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on the plate!

Great food and service but our table was facing the staff and next to the kitchen... noisy and chaotic, probably the worst table in the restaurant. Food was good and service was excellent.

Got more service from the busser than I did from waiter. Waiter brought alcohol drink out before food when a special request was asked to bring drinks with food. Ended up with a flat warm beer with my meal by the time food was brought. I told the other person who brought the drink that I asked for it with food. He said ok and walked away handing it to server who forced it on me and stated food was coming right out which didn’t come until 25 minutes after. Server was pushy and kept insisting on ordering drinks and appetizers when I clearly said no thank you. Wouldn’t come back here

Food was good, excellent service. It is a bright lit place, so not much ambiance for date- lots of families. Modern loud “music” good for the young hard-of-hearing crowd.

The service and waiters were the best and are enough reason to come back. The food serving was very small for me but understandable. Same with the appetizers, I ordered garlic cheese bread and you only get 3 pieces for like $12. The food was good though nothing extra special but it’s a good experience and a nice place. No complaints. Just up your quantity to go with your high quality service

We came here to have a Sunday Buffet Style Brunch only to find out that they don’t do this any longer due to the current COVID situation, which makes sense obv. but we would have appreciated it if there would have been clear information about this as nothing on the internet states that they no longer to this anymore. So we had to order a la carte and the food was good, nothing to complain about. The waiter was very friendly and fast and the ambiance is cozy.
I’ve came here for dinner too a few times and I got to say that my preference goes out to the dinner menu.
Ps. The Cannoli is just too good.
