We have been going there for about 50 years and now live across town, but it is worth the drive. Excellent selection for dining and my wife thinks they have the best fried chicken in the metro area and she knows her chicken.

Food was delicious. We had the lasagna and pasta trio. The decor is a bit dated but clean, and think it’s part of the ambience. Our booth had names of couples that have gotten engaged there. Went during restaurant week, and would go back.

As always, the week day buffet at V's was delicious and service was excellent. The special Restaurant Week offering just made it that much more of a pleasure to go to V's.

I have and always will love V's! Great Pizza! When I tell people about the pizza they always tell me "I always get the pasta". You don't know what you are missing. Get it once and you are hooked!

Service was outstanding as usual. The prime rib was a bit tough/fiberous and was just warm, not hot like usual, but tasted okay. The coffee is usually very good, but tasted ordinary this time. Our booth seat back was loose/broken and moved whenever someone sat behind us in the adjoining booth; rather annoying. Last, but not least, the floor was pretty cool in the booth we sat in. In all honesty, we know this was an off-night for this restaurant, and will continue coming here. This is one of our favorite places to come. We still recommend this restaurant -- just wanted to be honest with our review. We fully expect to have an outstanding dining experience next time we go.

V's is always a great place to dine. The food is always top quality and the service is right up there to match the food. We have been going to V's for over 40 years and we enjoy it every
time we go. We like the fact that they have stayed pretty much the same on their menu
through out the years. If you have the right food to start with you don't need to be changing
it all the time and V's has had it from the START.

The service and food was impeccable. This is the fifth year in a row for us to celebrate New Years Eve with family and friends at this restaurant. Our waitress, Natalie, did an outstanding job for us, a party of seven adults. The appetizers, main entrees and various desert items were excellent. Natalie and the rest of the staff never missed a beat. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who looks forward to a great meal and outstanding service. There's not an item on the menu that any of us in our party would not recommend!

We have long enjoyed V's which is mostly near our neighborhood. Love that they take reservations so there is no standing for an hour hoping for a table or booth. Pick a center table or quiet booth for the mood you want. Yummy appetizers, super filling entrees which they will pack up for leftovers, to die for house salad dressing, and free rum cake at the end. Even a diet friendly veggie pizza that is more than you can eat for only 400 calories! Family, friends, my book club group, or just us as a couple...always tops!

This was my first time at V's. It's a great mom and pop Italian restaurant. You would never know you were in Jackson County near the stadiums. Atmosphere was inviting. Food was exquisite. Service was fantastic...just attentive enough but not overbearing! I would highly recommend V's for any occasion.

It is a great restaurant. Very busy since it was Thanksgiving. My only complaint is that smokers were standing outside the door when we left. We had to go around them, since they were blocking. Not the restaurants fault, just people that do not understand that not everyone wants to die a painful death or pay a company for the production of toxins.

It was the first time that I had seen V's open on the Thanksgiving holiday and it was truly a treat. The food was delicious and the service, as always, excellent. There were lots of people there for the special Thanksgiving buffet but it was still quiet enough for conversation and everything went smoothly so we were able to serve ourselves without frustrating waits. V's never disappoints!

We were 3 couples of good friends getting together for an evening of catch up conversation and a nice dinner. It was quiet enough to hear each other talking without having to yell and we had a nice experience.
We all enjoyed our appetizers especially the escargot with puff pastry. Our dinners were all very tasty. My husband and I had Cippino. The seafood was cooked perfectly, but the sauce could have had a little more zip. I had tiramisu for dessert and I will certainly order it again it was very good.
The atmosphere is a little dated but the restaurant was clean. Our waiter Richard was helpful and served us timely on a busy Saturday night. The only thing negative was no perccio in the bar for me. Everyone else at the table enjoyed their cocktail or wine. V's has a large will lit parking lot.
We will go back and I will recommend it to friends.
