Buddy V’s Ristorante
I had the spaghetti bolognese, it was good, once you add some salt & pepper but be prepared that it is mostly pasta and sauce there is very little meat.
It was Easter Sunday so I am going to assume head chef was out and reduced staff made it uneventful.
Great food and desserts. It was our first visit but happy we chose your restaurant for our celebration (birthday)
Awesome food and service!!!
Always great food and wines. Server was amazing attentive.
Most enjoyable and convenient to the casino and the event hall
I was celebrating my birthday with my mom. I made the reservation on OpenTable, which was very easy, and we were taken to our table punctually. I had made a special request on the reservation to order the "lobster tail," the signature dessert, since they do sell out, and we split one, which was incredibly delicious. Food was delicious, just had spaghetti and meatballs, which we split and still had a portion to bring home! What a great meal!
We were seated right after we arrived for our reservation time! Timing of our drinks and food was good - didn't have to wait too long for anything, extra bread, drink refills, etc.
Food was good, not exceptional but very good. The chicken patty/breast I received (chicken parm) was ok but seemed like it may have been a frozen patty and quick fried.
Husband enjoyed his lasagna, and our server was really good and very friendly. Prices are average to high.
Food was excellent, sangria was delicious, no room for desert
Very nice restaurant. Amy is a great waitress/ server. Always attentive and pleasant
Candle light is nice if the ambience is intimate. But shouting to heard is far from intimate. I made reservations for two for my birthday was hoping for a more private seating. There are two of us why bring 3 pieces of bread, isn't 2 or 4 more suitable ? My wife got chicken and penne with vodka sauce, chopped chicken and very few of it wasn't worth the cost, I had the lasagna. Both our meals were overwhelmingly salty.
Service was excellent. Manager and wait staff were better than excellent. We had a reservation so we were immediately seated but wondering why people were told to wait 15 minutes when the restaurant was only 1/2 full. Anyway, the reason I cannot give it a full 5 stars is that the chicken in the chicken parm was so soft, I swear it was a patty (ground meat) and not a solid cut of chicken breast meat. I don't anticipate a good Italian restaurant to serve chicken patty … that belongs to an inexpensive fast food place.
We dined at Buddy V’s in the Sands Casino in PA. We had Mac n Cheese Carbonara and Eggplant as our entrees. They were fantastic and full of flavor. The eggplant was made perfectly, slight crunch on the outside, while the eggplant itself melted like butter in your mouth. We ordered dessert at the bar a little later. My favorite is tiramisu. This was horrible! It was served in a small mason type glass, the 8oz size. There was zero coffee flavor, everything was dry, even the pastry cream, and it was served with these flavorless biscotti type cookies. Are you supposed to dip them into the jar? Needless to say, we each had one bite and said no. It was returned. Very disappointing.
All was great until I ordered dessert. Lobster tail was sold out.
Overall great food
Would def return
Service was very good. Our server was very congenial and professional. Our appetizer, calamari was very good. I enjoyed my main, “Sunday gravy” but the sauce was a little acidic though. The meats were excellent although i could have done without the lamb. The gravy over the rigatoni needed to have the meats cooked with it a little bit to take the bite out of it.
The restaurant setting left a little bit to be desired though. More of a diner look rather than a nice Italian restaurant.
The Cesare salad hardly had any dressing on it. It was like eating watered down lettuce. So very disappointing for $12.00. And $21 for Angel hair spaghetti. Come on!
Food and service always top notch! Great value.
The service was great and the martini was perfect and the pizza was excellent.
The food was excellent. Would definitely want to go again.
I had read some reviews that were not positive so I didn't know what to expect, but we were very glad we went. Our server could not have been more pleasant and prompt. We each had a Caesar salad and Buddy's favorite pizza. The salad was huge and we should of split it. The pizza was excellent we will definitely go back.
I ordered the veal with rigatoni,
The chop was made perfect but had no gravy on it , also the rigatoni was cold and also no gravy
I asked for gravy and it looked like very very plain, not even a hint of garlic
The waitress was outstanding and easy on the eyes, drinks were good
My wife’s salmon was excellent but a very small portion
I wouldn’t go back
Let me first say the service was outstanding! My calamari was ok. I’ve had much better and the marinara sauce was bland. For dinner I wanted the 6 oz Bistro Steak with garlic shrimp. The waiter told me they were out of the steak and were substituting a 4 oz filet minion which was a better cut of meat. I guess it was 4 oz before cooking because it was tiny and it was accompanied by 4 small shrimp. The steak was totally unseasoned and the shrimp had unpleasant black char marks from the grill. All that for $38.00! My husband had the $25.00 Lasagna and he did say it was good and there was a lot of it. I personally would not go back. I felt like I was ripped off. I understand you pay more in restaurants in a casino but for that kind of money I shouldn’t leave still being hungry!
We've enjoyed every meal there. The lasagna is my favorite. The canolis are great. I would have preferred a booth but the table was all right.
Met friends before a show for a bite to eat. We all had delicious meals. We will be back!
Food was excellent old fashioned mom and pop restaurant food. Our server was great!
The staff was friendly and efficient. The food is always delicious and moderately priced. The cocktails are exceptional.
My only suggestion would be to offer a complimentary dessert to the person celebrating an occasion there!
With 3 italian Americans and 1 ‘IBM’ (Italian by marriage) the entire table agreed that the food was excellent. My 77yr old aunt pronounced the eggplant parmigiana to be as good as her own! Our server, Mike, was knowledgeable and personable. It was a great experience for my aunt, who watches Buddy’s show. We were treated well and will be back!
Buddy V’s is an awesome restaurant with a strip view.very classy! Food is incredible. Butterscotch Creme Brûlée is a must!
Outstanding in all meanings. Would strongly recommend this ristorante.
Loved the food; loved the value; liked the the ambiance. It was just a bit too noisy.
Food was tasty as usual. Sorry I couldn't get Momma's Sunday Gravy until 4 PM. Food took over 30 minutes to be served. Very slow.
The prefix dinner for the show at the Sands was an excellent option! Server was excellent and very reasonably price menu with quality food. I highly recommend it.
Very skimpy size plate and our waitress lorynn was the worst we ever had .. and rude too
Omg let me just saying amazing just like my family’s sauce meatballs amazing. Good top of line prices reasonable.
Love the food, love the servers! Great for a quick meal or a big gathering. We are there at minimum 3 times a month!
We had 3 adults and our bill was just under$200. Food was way over priced. 2 of us had the fettuccine Alfredo. 1 with shrimp and with Gluten Free pasta and chicken. The sauce was sooooooo very salty and both of us got sick on the way home. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs. He said it was so-so. The only nice I can say is that our waitress was very sweet.
Will not be going back EVER.
Service was a bit slow. Everything else from food and the waitress being funny and professional was on point. I'll be back for sure
Limited menu choices, limited drink menu, below expectations
I will never say anything bad about a restaurant. I will say that the food was decent but not worth the cost and it left me feeling not so well afterward. The service was great restaurant was nice. Just feel as if the food could of been better for the cost.
