The food is awesome. The calamari appetizer is the best I have had anywhere. The Sunday Sauce was killer! However, the noise from the 80’s Rock Bar across the hall was unbearable. It was as if they were trying to make our experience miserable. We could not hold a conversation without yelling. The Buddy V’s staff was fast, efficient,and compliant, but not very ingratiating. I felt as if they were annoyed by the noise. We would have loved to have enjoyed dessert but we had to get out of there.

Food came out within 10 minutes of order. Meat was Luke warm. No way was this cooked to order. More interested in turning the table quick. Table was in the middle of the restaurant and just did not feel cozy. Hostess was on her cell phone and finished what she was doing before seating us. She did not greet just was not a geed experience for the over priced meal. No drinks no app and the check for two was $90. Not happy

Food was very salty. Our table had three different entries and we all agreed they were over salted. We shared two desserts and both were very ordinary.
Noise level was very high, and it was difficult to hear each other.
Prices were very high for basic Italian food. You would be better off going to Olive Garden or something similar.
One positive was the waiter. He was very nice.

Good food, good prices. Comfort food that was well cooked and tasted good. Atmosphere was comfortable not crowded into tiny dining room. Staff was friendly but our server had too many tables. We waited longer then we should have for service but in the end it was a good meal.

Outstanding Sunday Brunch. At the Venetian, overlooking the strip. Cocktails are $15 - $18 extra (One time Bloody Mary DIY setup), but worth it. Food was outstanding. Highly recommended. Looking forward to our next visit.

A moderately priced restaurant on the Strip. Since the portions are large (at least for us two), they allowed a split our dinner and salad w/o a fee. Both were quite good and we would definitely return when we visit Las Vegas again. Also had wine. We requested and received a window table. Service was quick and very friendly. You can pay a lot more for better, but we were most pleased with the quality and price.

We had a great experience! In our reservation request, we asked for a seat with a view and boy did we get one...overlooking the Vegas Strip! Highly recommend the Lasagne, which is such a generous portion and delicious! Selected Tiramisu for dessert...was the best we ever ate.

Looking forward to Buddy's family cooking, instead, run of the mill Italian. Very inattentive server. Had to repeat my order 3 times because server was more interested in what was going on in the restaurant. Setting sun shined into eyes of patrons through window for 15 minutes; staff supposedly couldn't do anything about it. Miserable anniversary dinner. Many other options in Vegas for dining; go somewhere else.
