My bride couldn’t decide what she wanted. Wanted a little something with the V’s red sauce as well as something small with alfredo sauce. Our waiter said trust me and I guarantee you’ll be happy. She did and he did! Our whole meal and the service was absolutely wonderful. Can’t wait to return!

A true KC treasure. The food was magnificent, from the Fried Ravioli, to the House Dressing on the salad, to the Veal Cannelloni to the Cheese Manicotti. This is a family owned and run business who pours their heart and soul into the food and also their service. I haven’t been able to get the food off of my mind and it’s been 3 days. GO NOW!

Food is wonderful. The restaurant itself is outdated. Service was good but it was a Tuesday early evening so not busy. We’ll definitely go back but probably on a special occasion as it was pricey.

We wanted more mimosas but the waiter disappeared for quite a while. The mimosas were a big reason we came, so that was a little disappointing.

We loved this tasty and unique Italian restaurant! You can tell the dishes are made from scratch and curated from original recipes.

I had the chicken spidieni and the boys had spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was light and fresh roasted garlic was mouth watering the moment it hit the table. Chicken was lightly breaded, seasoned to perfection, and meat was juicy. My boyfriend added Italian sausage to his dish - both proteins were delicious. Additionally, the homemade spaghetti sauce was DIVINE!

Generous portion of wine was served and not overly priced.

Amanda was our server and she provided top notch service! We will be back and can’t wait to try other dishes.

Thank you for a wonderful evening V’s!

Brought a date here for both of our first time and I can say we both had a very pleasurable experience. from walking in to our server being very knowledgable about everything. Best part was he recommended one of the best wine bottles I've had in awhile. I looked forward to visiting you guys for dinner soon!

Had a wonderful time celebrating a family milestone as I've done at V's for 30 years now! The food was good, although the biscuits were a little hard and some of it could have been warmer, but it was still good! I will still be going back!! I miss the live chef creating pasta dishes, but understand not everything is the same now since covid. Everyone not actively eating was wearing a mask and the service was EXCEPTIONAL as always! Thanks so much!!

The food had way too much sauce on it and the rum cake was dry. Ran out of pumpernickel bread and it was just ok.

V’s is a favorite. They have their timing down. Drinks come out fast. Appetizers and salads follow, and entree’s arrive at just the right time. Our waitress, Shanell, was attentive and funny and a joy to be around. Their sauces are perfect-I particularly love their sugo. Can’t wait to go back.

What a wonderful dining experience for our company Christmas dinner. V's is distinct, not a chain, but a family run classic Italian restaurant that exudes charm and good taste. We weren't rushed, but instead enjoyed a wonderful leisurely evening of great food and libations in an elegant relaxing atmosphere.

My first time at V's was also a first date with someone. Our server was very friendly and pointed out some of the history of the restaurant.

The food was great and really made the date a success.

Nice variety of food items. Staff does a great job of serving the fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls and carved meat individually from the kitchen. Other hot items on the buffet were very tasty. Eggs benedict was not very hot, my only complaint regarding the food. Due to COVID, V's does a really good job spacing out tables. I liked it better when they had staff serving individual plates on the buffet line vs. now they have hand sanitizer at the beginning of the buffet but each customer is handling each of the entrees on the buffet. I felt safer when they were doing the serving. Mimosas and champagne included with buffet makes it very reasonable priced.

We were first concerned about the virus by even going out to dinner at all but after we arrived and checked in all worries disappeared. Nice and quiet, very clean all employees were wearing masks at all times and all customers were 6 feet or more apart. Service was immediate and very courteous. Very nice soft music played with just right lighting. Food was excellent, and price was very reasonable. Will return many more times hopefully.

As always, V's as a whole is a very good place to go with a friend whether it is for dinner or for the Sunday Buffet as this trip was. Great food, even tho the buffet is smaller, we understand the necessity of same. The waitresses were awesome not letting our Mimosa glasses to get empty during our visit.
