My wife and I travel to V's for special occasions and just for a great Italian Sunday Brunch. We totally enjoy the atmosphere, the personalized service, and the great food. The small, cozy rooms are just right for our style of dining and the food is ALWAYS top notch. I would highly recommend V's to anyone.
My wife and I love this place and try to visit at least every month or so. Family owned and operated with exceptional service with both uniquely eclectic and traditional Italian fare.
What a nice surprise. Last minute decision to dine at V’s. Easy reservations, lots of parking. They were busy but had our table ready and sat up promptly. Wine service, appetizers and salad were all exceptional! Server knew we were headed to a concert so she made sure our order got in and out on time. Steak and lasagna meals were perfectly cooked. Prices included bread, salads AND dessert! Wow!!! Great experience and value! Will definitely go back!
This was the second time I have eaten at V’s. I brought 3 new people and they loved it. Will have to go back again even though there isn’t a concert to attend at arrowhead. I’ll drive the distance. It’s that good!!
Outstanding, as always! Friends and family favorite for over 20 years!
Another fantastic dining experience for my Lady and Me. Great Food, Atmosphere and Service. Many Thanks.
My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday and proposed to me. The service was fast, food was perfect, and our server was very attentive.
Best Italian food in Independence! Family owned and operated and it shows. Lasagna with mushrooms is amazing and love the rum cake that comes with all entrees. Great ambiance as well.
This is our go-to place for a romantic Italian dinner, especially if we can get one of the booths in the back. Food is always excellent and the service friendly and prompt, no matter how busy.
We were anxious to try V’s as we have heard good things. The place was packed. We had 6:00 reservations and didn’t get seated until 6:25. We had concert tix at 8:00 and were concerned.
The food was certainly good, but honestly there are better options in KC. The chicken spindini was good but heavy on the garlic for my taste. Portion sizes were very good, not too big and filling.
I have been dining at V's since the early 1980s and, amazingly, it has always been a very good experience each and every time and in some ways (menu, wine list, and service) the last few visits have been the best ever. A relatively new menu item is Cioppino which is a clams, mussles, shrimp, white fish dish sauteed in a red sauce. I have eaten Cioppino at least a dozen times in various cities (San Fran, New York, New England, Florida, New Orleans to name a few) and this is either #1 or #2 (memory can play tricks) in terms of overall taste and contained in theonly slightly less seafood than some of the other restaurants. I HIGHLY recommend this dish. Their French Martini is also an excellent cocktail and their toasted beef ravioli is second only to some in St. Louis in my experience. Their house Italian salad dressing is my favorite of all restaurants I've eaten in the KC area over 40+ years of dining. Do yourself a favor and eat there soon and often!
My family has been going to Vs for years and we love it. Rachel is a fabulous server and so are all of the staff.
Old style Italian restaurant ambiance with great food and friendly service. Clearly loyal local folllowing - including us. House salad dressing is a sweet Italian and can be purchased which I highly recommend. Lobster and shrimp cannelloni was rich and tasty. And their lasagna with mushroom sauce is the best in the Kansas City area!
Always a GREAT dining experience in all facets. Charm, service, food and especially, the Rum Cake !
We enjoyed everything about or visit. Staff was very friendly. Food was incredible. I am so glad I found this place. We will go back.
As always, a wonderful place to gather with friends and family.
I grew up with a couple of Totta's and I am so happy that this place is still going strong after all these years. I recently took my mom there for her birthday. We had the brunch and it was fantastic. Great service and food!! I'll gladly go again!
Natalie was our server tonight and fantastic service. Food was perfect as always. Owners Greg and founder Mrs V come around to be sure all is good. Doesn’t get any better!!
Nice place, we will definitely be back. Everything was perfect.
The food and the service is top-notch. "Mama V" even came by our table to see how the kids liked their dinner.
The owners are so nice and friendly to all their guests.
Great food, great service! Outstanding prime rib dinner! Also get rum cake with entrees!
Always a treat. Never disappoints with great food & service!
It’s was very busy when we visited so the service was lacking and the food was not as good as I remember.
The food was excellent. Atmosphere was conducive for conversations. The wait staff were professional.
Awesome old-school Italian restaurant. The food is awesome and the portions are generous. They are also known for their fried chicken which is the best in town. Sunday brunch is a treat not to be missed.
My favorite italian eating experience. The support staff are all professional. The food is delicious and atmosphere perfect. Will go back and definately suggest to our friends and family the great experience they will love.
Great service and atmosphere. Great food. Appreciate the way this restaurant holds on to its integrity.
We have been to V's several times. We have always had good service from the hostess to the wait staff. We try to eat something different each time we go and have been very satisfied with our choices.
Pretty good food, attentive service. This is not a fancy place, by any means, and the food isn't anything to write home about. But the restaurant is charming, prices are fair and the food is decent.
Another great evening. Excellent steak and pasta. Lobster best in KC!!
Wonderful Italian cuisine. Excellent service. Entrees include salad, bread and free house special rum cake. Fantastic brunch and pasta station too. Perfect wine.
Our experience there was great. The food was delicious.
WE HAVE EATEN THERE BEFORE MANY TIMES, ITS ALWAYS GOOD
I had made the reservation almost a month before and specifically asked for Booth # 8 in the Tuscany Room. The Hostess stated to us at 5:25PM when we arrived that the table needed to be cleaned. She stated that it would take 10-15 minutes. We waited almost 30 minutes and finally we saw a group leave from the Tuscany Room and about 5 minutes later our table was ready. It was disappointing to us to
say the least. Everything else was right up to par where V's usually is.
Please don't post this for the public. I think you should contact V's only.
Thank you, Woody
I took my girlfriend and her parents for Brunch after church on Sunday. It was her mom's birthday, and we loved it! Plenty of food variety, all cooked to perfection. Totally recommend!
We go to Vs about once a month. Food and service is always wonderful. Great place to go.
My only complaint was that our server never came to our table. I was able to gain the attention of a nearby server, Jovita (?) and she apologized and took good care of us. We dine there about once a month, if not once every two months and have been regulars there for 6 or 7 years. We have always been served promptly. The food was delicious, as always.
This time business related meal and always the staff was amazing, the food outstanding and nice quiet place to conduct business without everyone overhearing what you are talking about. Always are favorite place
