Buddy V's is a delicious and reasonable choice restaurant at the Sand's Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The portion was large enough for me to enjoy another meal at home.

Second time eating here, and we’re very happy with the food, service, and ambiance. The original Italian restaurant in the Sands was Emril’s and it was absolutely horrible. Which has kept me away from Emril’s other restaurants. Buddy V’s is a huge upgrade. The bakery is excellent as well.

Went to Buddy V’s restaurant for the first time, I was kind of disappointed in the food and drinks considering the price that I had to pay. For an Italian Restaurant I would have expected my chicken parmegian to be better then it was.

The food was good. Service was excellent. It wasn't crowded or noisy which was great and unexpected given that it was Valentine's weekend. Prices were almost as wonderful as the tiramisu 🤗🤗🤗😍😍😍

NIce place, good food. Only inconvenience is bringing minor kids you have to check in with security and have an escort to and from the restaurant because it is on the casino floor.

a woman Dawn Bowles took our take out food and sat us at a table she is an asset to Buddys, food was excellent! was my daughters birthday wasn't able to get her dessert. hostess wouldn't seat us we were there @ 6:30 we got loss Dawn was very professional. i am 80 yrs old and diabetic so it was relief when we sat down and ordered drinks there were empty tables so there wasn't any reason why. Dawn put our food on plates and we enjoyed. we celebrated my daughters birthday and went to show.

The hostess is very rude. When I first went to get a table. She said I couldn’t get one till 730 and the table out front was taken. So I went on open table and there was a table ready at 630. I went to sign in and she stated it was for the bar which was not the case because it’s clearly states table for 2. Then the table we got was the table she told me was taken when I originally asked. I love this place for the food but the hostesses are terribly rude and should be trained on customer service.

The pre fixe menu was limited and tasted like a frozen meal reheated. That was the chicken parmigiana and even the cannoli...ashame for a place known for desserts! Those that ordered off the regular menu enjoyed their food. Veal Marsala with side of pasta from regular menu was delicious! The bread is delicious! The Caesar salad is large and tastes a bit of anchovies in dressing perhaps....service was wonderful ..

We split a Caesar Salad for an appetizer and it was terribly bland and lacking in any flavor. The waiter we had was totally overwhelmed and brought my wife the incorrect dinner but it took so long for out entrée that she kept what they brought her. My Rigatoni was very good and my wife's steak was good. Waiter was not on the ball and it took a long time to get the check. They cannot seem to get consistent good service here.
