Delicious Italian food in a great setting overlooking the strip. Ate flatbread pizzas and meatballs. Everything was tasty and the service was impeccable. We went on Sunday and enjoyed live music that was excellent (they played Sinatra songs among other classics). Highly recommend.

Restaurant itself was nice, the wait staff were kind and friendly. I got the chicken parm and didn’t like the taste much but the other items were good and would suggest to anyone to eat there. Plus the bakery/gift shop is right across from the restaurant.

Although I was on hold for a long time and walking towards the restaurant and afraid of losing our reservations the hostess Katia was very understanding and able to hold our reservation.
Thank you!
Staff was wonderful and food was very filling.

The service was outstanding- the food was very decent. Nothing over the top- but the server went over and above expectations. Would go back if only for the service!! They pasta could be better but was def edible. The fish was very decent but could use better sides to accompany.. the desert - of course was unreal and memorable!!

I was so excited that my family and I were able to experience in excellent Buddy V's Ristorante. I am a vegetarian so it was great to find something on the menu that I could eat. We also enjoyed the live band.

It was my boyfriends birthday, this is his favorite restaurant because of the food. Normally we have a good time, the last time we were there we felt a little ignored, but this time our server ( :( I can’t remember his name ) but he was AMAZING. Seriously the best experience we’ve had there. He took the time to get to know us, he joked around a little, he was very attentive. I was amazed at how wonderful he made our experience. There was also a live band which made it even better. I love coming here.

Buddy V’s was fantastic. I would highly recommend. Food was outstanding & our waiter, Joseph, was terrific & very attentive. He also was the spiting image of Lin Manuel-Miranda! Will definitely go back. It’s at the top of our list the next time we visit Las Vegas! Oh, did I mention the dessert, we had the Birthday Cake & it was like nothing we have ever had before. Had cannoli filling & came on a little cake stand. Plenty for 2 to share.

Food was really good, however, servers really try to upsell you items, which was a bit unpleasant. Also maybe slightly understaffed given how busy they are. Otherwise, would recommend.

Oh my goodness... I am a conniseur of chicken parm (or so I believe I am) and this was by far the best chicken parm I have ever had. I took a bite and my friend started laughing because she said my face looked like it was so good I was going to cry. And she was absolutely correct. Eat here... drink the wine... indulge in a homemade dessert and life will be as good as it gets!

Very nice location overlooking the strip. Service was excellent. Very informative staff and engaging. Food was very good - portions of the Italian staples are very large - lasagne enough for two people. Sea Bass was excellent. Pizzas good too.

The service was IMPECABLE! I can not stress that enough! The attention to detail Buddy V's has put into their dining experience does not go unnoticed. From the fun conversation with the wait staff (Georgio) to the constant care and service by the bus staff and of course the DELICIOUSSS food (highly highly recommend the seafood pasta arrabiata and the pizza margarita!), everything about Buddy V's was awesome. We made reservations for my parents' 30th wedding anniversary, and they made it so special for us! 10/10 would recommend!! and we will definitely be back! Thanks for the laughs, for the good times and the very very full bellies!!

Our waiter was very patient, personable and attentive. The food was really good. We did the charcuterie board, meatballs and split the family gravy pasta. The pasta comes separate than the meat. Really really good.

This is my second visit to Buddy Vs. I was so impressed with their brunch buffet the last time that I had to come back. So many buffets are all salads and the flavors are ho hum. But here everything is so good. The flavors are unique to each dish. I could make a meal on their Mac & cheese alone. The shrimp is so fresh and perfectly cooked. I really enjoyed this.

Buddy V’s not only had great food, the service was amazing. We arrived early but they sat us right away. The server was extraordinary. Our drinks never were empty. We celebrated my dad’s birthday and they made it special.

Way too noisy . . . Especially if you are seated near the bar area / band playing . . . I refused a table near this area on September 4th because I was seated near the bar several years ago. Still found the restaurant extremely loud . . . Patrons were literally yelling at some of the tables. Will not return for an intimate meal for two. I will return when I want to be energized . . . Food is great and the prices are reasonable.

Wonderful experience at Buddy Vs! Our server, Giorgio, could not have done more for us from a warm welcome, to delicious recommendations to answering our curious questions about other Buddy Vs ligations. We started with the meatballs and panzanella salad and moved on to shrimp scampi, chicken parm and chicken rigatoni alla vodka. Each dish was amazing, well prepared with fresh ingredients and most of all tasty. For dessert we had the traditional lobster roll and Nutella cake and finished both in about 4 minutes. Highly recommend Buddy Vs, we will be back

Went to Buddy V’s with two others. Beth, our server, was fantastic and answered all of our questions regarding the menu. We ordered the meatballs to start, which were delicious along with the fresh bread. For entrees we had the chicken parm, lasagna, and the roasted vegetable pasta with chicken. We all agreed that the lasagna was fantastic. Both the chicken parm and roasted vegetable pasta were great too, but lasagna stood out above the others. Will def be back!
