My husband's Prime Rib was the best he ever had. I had the fried lobster tail and the lobster tasted good it was slightly on the tough side. Overall the food was delicious. We love V's and will continue to eat there. I just won't order the fried lobster.

Vi’s is one of my favorite restaurants! Most times I take my family there, it is fairly quiet. This time, there were two large groups in the special rooms and a large regular crowd. Lots of noise, but great food!

V's is our go to place for special occasions, and for just a quiet night out for dinner.
Food was excellent and our server and the restaurant support staff were equally friendly and seemed to really care about taking care of us.

Food was okay at best; My wife’s chicken parmigiana crusting was not coated well to the chicken. I had too much sugo on my sausage penne dish this caused the penne to become mushy; However the service and ambiance was top notch.

My wife and I have been eating at V's for the past 50 years. Even though we now live in Overland Park, we still take
trips to V's to enjoy an excellent meal. Our two children are also big fans of V's. My wife thinks V's has the best fried chicken in Kansas City. I believe V's has the best Italian food in the Kansas City area. What can I say, we love V's!

We always have great food and service at V’s. The food is delicious - my favorite is the lasagna. One of the family is always there & usually stops by your table to check on the food and service. That’s what has kept this restaurant a favorite for so long - hands on by family.

I am 60+ years old born and raised in Kansas City. In addition, I work for a very large company in KC and travel 20-30 weeks each year (for the past 18 years) to dozens of large and small cities around the USA and dine out every night when traveling not to mention other cities and countries we travel to for vacations. My wife and I dine out often all over the Kansas City metro area since the early 80s. It finally occurred to me that, in our experience, we have found no better value and quality than dining at V's. The food(especially), service, wine selection and ambience are as high quality and better than restaurants (Italian or otherwise) costing 25-50% more. In the future, the only reason I will eat at another Italian restaurant in KC is simply for the variety and perhaps in the hope of finding something close to the experience at V's. Please do yourself a favor and eat at V's soon.

Our family has been enjoying meals at Vs for since the mid-70s. It is high-5s for the salad and pumpernickel bread! Wonderful Italian food. The staff is welcoming and treats us like family. Many wonderful memories - and anticipating many more.

Despite a last minute change in the size of our party, the staff at V's were extremely gracious. As always the food did not fail to satisfy. I do wish there could be a bit more accomodation for folks who move slower, or have a cane or wheelchair. It is quite snug on Brunch days.

We had a group of Red Hat ladies( Kansas City Kittens) in for an evening celebration of 15 years together.

Great food, good service and loads of fun with the ladies.

We have met at this same location many times. Love the easy access off of 40 Highway.

I love the tradition with V's as being a top notch local restaurant for so many years. We had a large party and the tables were ready when we arrived. The service was EXCELLENT! I heard a couple of complaints about the food (mine was delish).......like the breading on the chicken parmesan was too thick and falling off the chicken. Otherwise, we had a great experience at V's to celebrate our Mom's 83rd birthday. Thank you!

We absolutely love going to V's we have never had a bad experience. For the last two years we have gone to V's for my mother's birthday and this visit was again one for the books. We had a awesome waitress who was not only patient, but alot of fun. The food is beyond words and the atmosphere is so inviting, happy, and at home feeling. It's so nice to know there is a family own restaurant who is welcoming to all that has been around for years. If you are looking for a great Italian place to just grab some food, or have a celebration you must check this place out, you won't be disappointed!
