Although we had reservations for family of 4, they sat us at the entrance by host stand looking at Carlos Bakery! Our waiter was awful....forgot our Caesar salad then eventually after asking about it twice he brought it when we were half done our main course......then had nerve to charge us for it.....never asked how food was....never asked if we would like another cocktail....will not be back

My son’s birthday was celebrated here - excellent experience. Food was all top-notch, especially pasta dishes! Panzanella salad was different and good and the orders are a must-order! Cannoli are handmade and definitely worth it. As an aside we were grateful they had gluten-free options!

I love Buddy V’s and make it a point to stop there when I get some time in Vegas. This time I sat at the bar and was greeted right away by a very busy bartender who treated everyone like they were the only customer. The food was excellent and fast, for a reasonable price. I will be back for sure.

The service was great, the food was good, but none of the food was hot. I know that this can happen with buffets, but it was a bummer.

The coffee was the best I had anywhere in Vegas and the mimosas were good too.

Overall, not that impressed. Food was average at best. Environment was horribly loud. It was nice you could make reservations. Unfortunately, the value does not equal the cost.

We chose this place to dine because it was Italian and near to a show we were seeing at 8:00. I knew of Buddy V from my daughter watching "Cake Boss" and was excited to try his restaurant. The food was basic Italian. Although a lot was made of the fact that it was family recipes or favorites, we didn't feel it was that different than most other mid range Italian restaurants. The decor was very homey. We weren't fond of eating off of wood tables without place mats or something but the seat near the window was great for people watching.

The service was okay. We had reservations very far in advance at a very early hour (5:45 PM). We were seated at the table closest to the hostess station. When we asked if we could sit at one of the many open tables near the window, we were told to go back to the hostess station and wait. They asked again if we had reservations. We said, "yes" and then they took us to the nicer table. We saw many other couples come after us and be seated at the first table, only to ask to be moved.

Our server was slow to greet us, was not too conversational or friendly but managed to get our orders and our meals, which I guess is what you need. We weren't offered coffee or dessert, just presented with the bill. Maybe the Italian food is so filling that many do not order dessert.

In any case, it met our needs of proximity and we made it to the concert in plenty of time! With so many other Italian restaurants in the area, I'm not sure we would go back but if you like Buddy V and Italian food, it's probably fine.

Very noisy. Normally, I avoid family-style options in restaurants, but our waiter did his job and sold my group on the special chef’s family style dinner, which was overpriced for the selections, quality and portions.

Food and service was great. However, the music being played was WAY too loud. My wife and I literally had to yell at each other to be able to talk to each other. We both were grateful when they took a break. We hurried up and finished up so we could get out before they started playing again.
