Beautiful decor with great views of the strip. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Great for a romantic date or special occasion.
The food is the best I have tasted! Homemade recipes shared, can't get better than that. They made our 24 anniversary perfect even down to our dessert writing happy anniversary on the plate!

I enjoyed one of the best brunch menus ever! Buddy V's had a variety of breakfast and lunch items- all delicious and abundant. The entire staff was friendly, helpful, and collaborative. Everyone seemed to be working together to make sure our experience was a positive one, and they didn't disappoint. Fabulous! Next time I'm in Las Vegas, I will be going back.

Nice place for a business meal. Our server, Georgio, was awesome. He advised that we just let the Chef choose. We agreed and had an awesome meal. Branzino, Chicken Picatta, Fillet, and Penne alla vodka. paired with wonderful appetizers and great desserts.

My advice is to let the chef take care of ordering!

Our server Gorgio was outstanding. I was entertaining clients from out of town. He offered to take the menus and trust him to serve us a good meal. He exceeded our expectations. Top notch service and great tasting food. He even accommodated my vegan request.

We had the cheese steak sandwich, the meatballs and garlic bread and it was fantastic! There was way too much food and the garlic bread was massive but it was all very, very good. Definitely have to try the strawberry lemonade because it’s amazing and you get a cup to take home:)

We had a great meal at Buddy’s. We were seated right in front of the open kitchen and although noisy it was fun to see and hear the chefs. The food was fantastic: real home-cooked style Italian food. The service was impeccable, we never had to ask for top-ups. The warm Nutella cake for dessert was particularly good. Unfortunately I was a bit under the weather so I had a poor appetite but we have vowed to return to Vegas purely so we can return to Buddy’s!

Met friends from out of town there for dinner on Jan 1. Crowds everywhere! Hostess seated us in area where we could hear each other speak. I recommended the salmon as it is a favorite of mine. They loved it. My hubby had the Sunday Gravy special and loved it. I had the chicken and rigatoni but bad choice as too dry. I took it home and added sauce from a jar and it was great on Jan 2! The mozzarella app was delicious. Side salad too many greens heaped on plate and not enough dressing. We skipped dessert. We definitely will go back as I'll need to have that salmon dish again!

Across from Carlos' Bakery, and owned by same "Cake Boss" family. Solid home-style family Italian recipes. Pricier than off-strip restaurants, but a nice break from the buffets. Wait staff very friendly and accommodating. Casual atmosphere. Recommend reservations, especially on weekends.

We aren’t big on buffets (fat lazy people in electric carts, come to mind,) but this one is a bit different. It was more like an Italian brunch buffet. I thought it was great! Great food, fairly easy to get to, service was a little poor/slow, but that’s what you get at a buffet and why you just tip a lot less. I also expected since this was the “cake boss” guy’s restaurant, there would be some over-the-top, epic desserts available. They were good, but just unremarkable. If I HAD to do a buffet, this would be the one I would go to. All others are pretty bad, and fall off a cliff from here.

This is a poor excuse for Italian food. NOt Authentic! Kids (that are not Italian) preparing the food in the kitchen. We had the calamari, veal Marsala, rigatoni a la vodka, and spaghetti with marinara. All were soooo salty. Everything tasted frozen. We ate two bites and left hungry... with $130 bill.
