                        Food was amazing as always. I made my reservation and had the confirmation saved. I got to check I in and they said they don’t use Open Table anymore and had no record of my reservation. The place was empty as it was 3:00/3:330. I showed her the text of my co formation and even went to the Open Table site to show her I had a reservation. She finally said there must be an I sue so we will get you a table. There were plenty of tables open and it was not close to dinner time so I am not sure why she made such a fuss about my reservation when clearly there was plenty of open seating. Even when we left an hour later it was still empty.

                        We went for lunch right after they opened and it was nice and relaxing. Had the pre set menu, which is worth the value for what you get. Tomato basil soup paired very well with the cheesy garlic bread! Shrimp scampi was very light.

                        I have had this reservation for months because of the gluten free options . I was so excited to eat here only to be told when I checked in they were out of GF pasta. Such a disappointment since I’m so limited on my food choices

                        Food was great. They were a little slow on our appetizers and both the hostess and waiter came by to apologize. The waiter (Georgio) also made sure we got extra meatballs and an extra canolli. So we left stuffed.

                        Food is good but staff is not very friendly. Not crowded but they still didn’t have the time to be attentive.

                        I am an Italian whose family makes traditional Italian dishes. We have weekly pasta dinner. We don’t eat turkey on Thanksgiving- we eat homemade ravioli. We make our own gravy - yes, gravy (not sauce) with neck bones. I’ve eaten at Italian restaurants in Chicago, New York, Canada and Italy. I’m not easily impressed at Italian restaurants. As a matter of fact, I’ve never been overly impressed by any Italian restaurant. Buddy V’s is hands down, some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had including within my own family. The chicken piccata and linguine was amazing. The vodka rigatoni with chicken was out of this world. Try the calamari and the caprese salad made with burrata. And for dessert, be sure to get the cannoli and the lobster claw. Delicious!! Do not eat Italian anywhere else in Las Vegas. You’d be missing out on the best Italian restaurant in the city.

                        Last day of Restaurant Week. Had the lunch. Everything was excellent and more than we could eat. Best $20 deal on the Strip.

                        I always eat at Buddy V’s when staying at the Venetian/ Palazzo. I love the food no matter what I order it’s top notch. I had the Veal chop parm. My server Giorgio was amazing on top of every detail. The desserts were great had Tiramisu and Cannoli.

                        First night of our Honeymoon we ate here. We only wanted something small to nibble on. Our waiter suggested buddy’s favorite pizza and it was the perfect amount to share. So authentic and delicious. Plus we even had room for one of the Cannolis for dessert! Amazing service and such a relaxing atmosphere after a long plane ride.

                        It was crowded which is fine but service was not great. I had to ask for the little things and then wait 4 minutes or so to get it. For example salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese. Overpriced but I expected that. Food was good not great.
