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.

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!

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!

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!

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

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.
