We ordered the lunch set menu which included appetizer, entree and dessert for $22. I had a salad, meatball sub and cannoli and she had tomato basil soup, chicken parm and tiramisu. We thought that the food was too sour for our tastes, namely the soup, salad, tomato sauce in the meatball sub and pasta that came with the chicken parm. The best tasting thing was the cannoli. The view and ambiance was quite nice and service was attentive from waitstaff. Price was very reasonable as well.

this has to be one of my new favorite restaurants to dine at when visiting Las Vegas. this was my 1st visit to this restaurant and for a special occasion (my 50th birthday), I dined there with my two sisters, my niece and my Mom and we all LOVED everything we ate. We even had a cake ordered/delivered from Carlos Bakery (just across from this restaurant) and that was fantastic too. Our waitress (I don't remember her name, she was brunette, long hair with two braids) was very attentive, everyone who was at our table was impressed with the service, including the manager who stopped by our table as well (let's hear it for NJ!). We will definitely dine here again the next time we are in Las Vegas!!!

I was attracted to the restaurant because of the owner. I felt the service was average but not careless (when they cleared appetizers and dinner they never replace utensils so I kept taking from table next to us. They also brought the wrong wine Pino Grigio vs Pinot Noir) Not a place to have a business dinner as the music was too loud. The food was very enjoyable and the dessert was very good. I would recommend and come back.

The style of the restaurant was beautiful. Done with 'the Cake boss' in mind. \nIt was my mother's 75th birthday, we had originally set reservations for 6pm. The team at Buddy V's were very accommodating when we requested if we could push the time up to 5pm. The first waiter was fabulous, great personality. He suggested the Italian family service which had all of the restaurants favorite meals. We just sat back and allowed buddy V's team bring us plate after plate of delicious Italian food. My Mom was thrilled and enjoyed the entire evening. At the end, they brought out to my Mom a medley of deserts with a lite candle.\nOnly wish since the restaurant is the cake boss's place, that they offered more of a variety of deserts, since that is part of the appeal of eating at the cake boss's restaurant. Desert menu very limited. However, what deserts that were offered were outstanding. Specially the cannoli.

Always willing to work with what you want to eat even if it's not on the menu. \n\nCharcuterie is fantastic! The meatballs are the best I've ever had. Italian salad was delightful. Salmon was cooked perfectly. Honestly, everything was perfect both times we've been. It will become a regular stop each year while in Vegas!!

Food was fantastic! There were four of us and we ordered the meat and cheese platter; excellent choice. Dinner choices included lasagna, cheese ravioli, Sunday gravy and chicken scaloppini - all were amazing! Everyone was extremely pleased with their meals. The portions are very large so come hungry and don't be afraid to share. We all commented we will definitely be back and will likely choose more of a family style approach versus each ordering our own entre. Also, we didn't have any room to try dessert and it would have been nice to do so. If you love Italian, you have to come to Buddy V's at the Venetian!

Went to Buddy V's based on proximity to our hotel for my wife's 50th birthday and not wanting to pay Vegas prices for dinner. When our party of 8 were seated we were pitched on the family style dinner, and if you don't mind paying, this is the way for large parties to go. Appetizers of calamari, meatballs and meat\\cheese trays started us off. All excellent. Breading on calamari was light and delicious. The meat tray had salami, prosciutto and capicola sliced thin with toasted bread slices. Entrees were so many, I didn't have room to try them all. Lasagne, rigatoni, veal, chicken picatta, carbonara and beef so tender I cut mine with a fork !! If that wasn't enough, dessert had cheesecake, lobster tail and others that didn't make it to my side of the table !! If you don't get enough dessert, Carlo's Bakery is just across from Buddy's. Now the special part... our waiter Gregorio was Buddy's cousin and took great care of us. The whole evening he made us feel like we were sitting at his mother's table in Italy telling us stories and explaining his favorite dishes. Buddy V's was the highlight of our birthday celebration !!

We went here last July, & the food quality/service has slipped a bit since then. Authentic dishes, that were a slammed together in the middle of a dinner rush. Not enough olive oil & balsamic provided for our table bread. Caprese salad was subpar. Sunday dinner was smothered in gravy overkill. Waitress seemed flighty at times, waited 20 minutes for a beer. Food temperatures were moderate, like the plates had been sitting under heat lamps too long. Average prices, good portions. Seemed like a better experience mid-week as opposed to Friday night. Might try again sometime in the future, but not next trip.

We visited this location for our anniversary. The staff were very attentive. The food was quick however the Caesar salad dressing was quite salty to my liking. The chicken Parmesan was absolutely amazing I requested the salad be taken and it was removed from the bill after being offered a remake or another selection. They offered us a beautiful dessert for our anniversary. We chose the cannolis. They were amazing, as expected. After all, they are famous for them! There was live music playing next to us.

My husband loved the macaroni and cheese comparing it on par with Gallagher's. My only complaint would be some of the plates were dirty and could have used a little more thorough washing.

Great food, great location, great price! \n\nLooking for good Italian on the Strip, then this is an excellent option. I first tried this restaurant 2 years ago. A little apprehensive, thought this might be all hype of the TV personality. However, was wonderfully surprised at the good food and service. Everything we tried was tasty. Fast forward to Dec 26th 2016 and I'm visiting again with the family (2 adults, 2 kids). After the positive experience 2 years ago we made a reservation, wanting something tasty and casual after a flight. So glad it didn't disappoint again, food was still as good. This time I tried the $40 prix fixe menu. Every course was delicious and you can't beat the price. Highly recommend!!

We had reservations for opening time. When seated we were rushed to order even though the restaurant was not busy. We requested kids menus and our server came back without the menus and asked if had decided on what we wanted to eat. My brother asked a question about the available drinks to which the server said he would find out. The server came back about 15 minutes later with our food, when asked again about the drinks, he admitted that he forgot. The food was just okay and the poor service really spoiled what had been planned as a family lunch for almost four months. I would not recommend eating here unless you REALLY love Buddy and just want to patronize for him.\nFor desert, we went to the bakery right across the hallway. Talk about DIRTY! Chocolate milk had been spilled at the ONLY seating area (bar) and was not cleaned up for at least 10 minutes. The employees put a wet floor sign over the spill and left it there like the problem was solved.\nOverall, not the professional touch I anticipated.

We had an early reservation, so the restaurant was quiet. Tables are spaced far enough apart that you aren't bothered by conversations at neighboring tables. The service is excellent - fast, friendly, and helpful. The food is excellent. Portions are large enough to share. We made the mistake in past visits of ordering too much food. Prices are a little high compared to other Italian restaurants, but the size of the portions makes up for that. It is very hard to save room for dessert, but try, if you can. Buddy V is the Cake Boss, and there is a separate bakery with display cases full of amazing cakes and pastries. If you like Italian food, you will love Buddy V's.

One of them had a hair, another one had what seemed like marinara sauce and the 3rd one...I don't even know what that was.

It is even served with rigatoni, which is hard to find in most restaurants. Highly recommended if you want some real ITALIAN cooking. Get the lobster tail for dessert...

Wait staff very abrupt and felt as if we inconvenienced them when we first arrived (party of 15). Eduardo the assistant waiter was a matter of fact and basic interpersonal skills to interact with customers. I will say Eduardo was a very hard worker however not very pleasant to interact with. Our waiter Charley was polite but not very engaging until I started intentionally chatting with him. He later warmed up and made us feel welcome. We are not high maintenance people however expect to feel welcomed. Our check was $650 and even though we weren't impressed with staff we left $100 tip. Good place for small party. Charlie's recommendation of linguine with clam sauce along with shrimp was excellent.

Was disappointed overall. Meals were for the most part good. One meal, salmon, was undercooked. Unfortunately, the service was jumbled, no real waiter assigned, seemed to be several who did not communicate - offered the same thing by two different wait staff at two different times.

Everyone on staff we came in contact with basically had no interest in serving us. The woman who seated us barely spoke a word and was put off when we asked to be seated at one of many open booths. The waiter took his time in getting to us and once we ordered drinks there was at least a 20 minute wait to receive them. The Bloody Mary bar was a joke - no utensils to pick up ingredients and the base Bloody Mary mix tasted like it came out of a can. While the buffet had some variety, most of the food was underwhelming. Salty chicken Parmesan overly cheesy macaroni, and lackluster frittata. Only the scrambled eggs were redeemable, and surprisingly tasty. I would not recommend this restaurant and I certainly won't be taking friends there again.

I was not happy when we had ordered drinks at the bar for happy hour which were $4 each at the bar as we were waiting for our table then we get to our table still before happy hour ended with drinks in hand. We ordered the same drinks after drink not knowing happy hour did not apply to drinks at the restaurant. we received are our bill are we're shocked that no one had the curtesy to tell us! So absolutely ridiculous. For the prices charged you would think they would just let you know, at least! Not happy and we will never return and be sure to tell all of our out of town friends the same. When pressed on the issue, the waitress just said m, we aren't supposed to let you go to the bar to get the happy hour price drinks if your eating here.... so it's we are shelling out for an expensive meal we have to pay for over priced drinks as well when the same freaking restaurant is having more affordable drinks not 2 ft away -.- stupidity

He was eager to please and always prompt to arrive. The actual server, though, was on the slow side. Although she didn't do anything wrong, per se, she didn't seem terribly invested in serving us.

For our first night in Vegas my boyfriend and I made a reservation with a friend and her husband who were traveling with us. My friend and her husband ordered the garlic bread appetizer for themselves, my boyfriend and I were not hungry enough for an appetizer, and the waiter said that as it came with only 3 pieces that he would make sure that a fourth piece would be added for us without us requesting one. When we got the check I noticed that he charged us for the fourth piece. While this would have been fine had he mentioned the extra charge or had we asked for the fourth piece, he made it seem as if he was doing this complimentary and that's not right. \n\nAs for the entrees, my boyfriend had the Chicken Penne a la vodka (which I had a taste of and it was good), my friend had the pizza which she said was good, her husband had the eggplant parm appetizer as an entree which he said was good, and I had the chicken parm which while it was good, I've had much better. The portions were big, too big to really finish. \n\nWe didn't have room for dessert, but after looking at the dessert menu anyway we wouldn't have chosen anything. The dessert menu is very limited which is surprising because it's owner is The Cake Boss. He has a bakery across from the restaurant but the line is so long it's not worth the wait to attempt dessert there, I've had his cupcakes before and while they are tasty, they aren't worth the line that went down the length of the hotel corridor for it.\n\nThe problem was that while everything was good (nothing was inedible), none of it was excellent. It really wasn't worth the price for what we got, and everything else we had during our stay at other restaurants was much better quality wise for around the same price. I would definitely find better Italian elsewhere rather than come here. The fact that the waiter also charged us for an extra piece of garlic bread that he decided we should have is ridiculous.

Buddy V's has to be the worst restaurant I have been to in a while. The food tastes as if it is warmed from frozen. There is no sense of freshness and things are served cold or over cooked. Yet they charge prices that gives you the expectation that the food will be tasty. In other words, it is way overpriced for what they give you. As well, when I returned a cold pasta, the manager was grumpy with no apologies. She said she will have it thrown back in the pan. Microwave is probably what they did which made a mushy tasteless pasta even worse. Awful stuff. Do not go!

Decided on Italian food our 2nd night in Vegas, and went to Buddy V's. My husband got the special Sunday dish that had a variety of meats in gravy (sauce) and rigatoni. I kept it simple with my pasta and Italian sausage. If we were to go back, my husband said that he'd just get the pasta and meatballs. I think this is the kind of place where you should just keep it simple. It's home-style Italian food - delicious, but the restaurant is not somewhere you want to try anything exotic or complicated. Italian food is satisfying in its simplicity. It's very, very loud - so go with someone you're comfortable leaning close to or eating without talking.

We were a little late (8 min) for our reservation., and due to that we had to wait about 15 minutes and we were seated in the bar area. It was another 15 minutes for our waitress to come over for the first time. We ordered our appetizer and entrees all at once because of the wait. Then it was another 20 or so minutes and they bring out our entrees, and no appetizer. They did correct it and we did get the calamari appetizer and it was very good. We were barely finished and our entrees come. They did comp the appetizer due to the mix up. My sea bass was very dry and kind of tasteless. My husband got the pork chop and it could have fed all four of us it was so big. It tasted pretty good, I liked it better than my meal. Our friend had the veal Marsala and he enjoyed his and ate it all. We have been coming to Vegas for the past 6 years and this was our worst dining experience here.

The carbonara was amazing. We dined for our 2nd anniversary on the pre-theater menu. I had the meatballs which were in a just perfect marinara sauce.

Oh my! Heaven on Earth. My husband had the tomato soup which I would have loved to have with a grilled cheese sandwich. His main was the salmon, he said it was really good. He finished with a cannoli. Stick with the Nutella cake; although he did prefer the cannoli in the end. Everything was just right including the bread they serve. Total tab with soda for beverages was around $96, a little more than we are use to paying back home, but it was an amanzing dinner. Go hungry if you get pasta, the portions are large.

The portions are very large and therefore, I recommend sharing an entree. My only issue is that I requested a table by the window and was told those booths were reserved for parties of six, while we were only four. I watched those booths either remain empty or four were seated there after we were given a booth by the service station. Not the greatest seating but the food made up for the table.

The other reviews are spot on. Unbelievably good for 'classic' Italian. The best I've had and I'm a foodie. The band wasn't too loud/close which we appreciated. That garlic cheese bread, though. Wow. The eggplant appetizer. Caprese with burrata! The orecchiette with sausage was perfectly seasoned and prepared. Others had seafood pasta and chicken piccata which they loved.

Appetizer started with Caesar salad and meatballs. The salad was okay, if not a little under dressed. Meatballs were perfect, exactly the way my mom made them. It brought me back to Sunday macaroni dinners. \nFor dinner, I had an Italian classsic which is hard to mess up but they did. I like a little crunch to my chicken Parmesan. Unfortunately it was soggy with no crispiness. They could've let the chicken sit in the fryer for a bit longer. The sauce was scarce and the mozzarella was bland. The substitute for pasta, broccolini, was very good. A perfect blend of olive oil and garlic topped with shaved Parmesan cheese.\nService was fantastic. A very accommodating lady really went the extra mile to provide us with a good dining experience. She noticed the leftover chicken, and when she asked if I was done with it, she immediately noticed a particular face I made of disappointment. She asked if there was anything she could do, perhaps tell the maitre'd, or try again. I turned it down.\n \nI would come again if I am out in LV, but it bothers me that they could mess up a classic dish such as this.

We are from the NYC area, and have enjoyed some outstanding Italian cuisine there over the years. One of my favorite NYC spots in particular set the bar for me on Veal Chop Parmigiana many years ago, and I've never had better anywhere - until now!! It is a good sized chop, so I came up a little short in leaving just the bone - but I did come very close - and enjoyed every single delicious bite! I'm sure I will be back for a 're-match'! Meanwhile, Kudos to Buddy and his Chefs for the incredible dishes, and to Kristi for her excellent job with our service. This meal is one I'm not likely to forget - well done everyone!!

Came for my mother's birthday. Let me tell you about my mother:\n- She was born in Calabria, Italy\n- Loves Italian food (given), but almost never goes out for Italian food since we have it with family often and her standards are high.\n- She does not like to spend money, everything is compared to a cheaper alternative and rarely thinks money is well spent at restaurants. \n\nOur waiter hyped up the family style dining experience, which we usually do on our own. The fact they had a program to do so was great to hear, and it did not disappoint.\n\nThe food was amazing. Exceeded all of our expectations. We had a great spread that really covered all the bases from the menu. One dish was better than the next.\n\nThe waiter, Georgio, was the best in the business. I've eaten at great restaurants around the world and had great service but he was truly world class and made the night. He was funny and entertaining but did not overdue it. Sometimes you get a funny or personable waiter who you like but they are too busy chatting they forget a request or get distracted, but not Georgio. He even sang happy birthday to my mother in Italian which really was the icing on the cake. \n\nIt was a night to remember, thank you to Buddy V's for making it special!

I will start by saying that it was a bit difficult to find Buddy V's restaurant within the Venetian, so better directions would be great!

She was incredibly attentive and courteous and went above and beyond to make my Boyfriend's Birthday dinner memorable and put a smile on his face which is very hard to do! The food was delicious and the drinks were well prepared. The server was even nice enough do bring a birthday desert for my boyfriend and have Happy Birthday written in chocolate sauce on his plate!

Picked Buddy V's because it was close to our Hotel, Mirage. Just a few minutes walk across the street. The ambiance is an open floor plan with tile floors and an open kitchen. So, it's not quiet and romantic. Borderline noisy. The service is always top notch. We've eaten at the bar, when reservations weren't available and got just as good of service from the bartenders. Love watching them make their custom drinks. This visit we started with the Caprese salad made with fresh mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes. Delicious. I had the chicken rigatoni alla vodka. Nice creamy tomato sauce with a healthy portion of large noodles. A little light on the chicken this time. Wife got the Buddy V's Favorite pizza (listed as an appetizer, but she got as main course). A thin crust personal sized pizza that is really fresh. We finished off with the butterscotch creme brulee. Again, delicious and plenty of it. Great food, great atmosphere. Very attentive service from Beth, our server. And Danny the bartender on a separate night was also fantastic with service and menu knowledge.

He hit the nail on the head with all of them! I love a waiter who isn't afraid to do that and make a dinning experience that much more amazing. Excellent food! We had the meatballs, octopus and shared the carbonara. To finish we had the canolli - can't go to Buddy's without dessert, right?

My wife and I made reservations at Buddy V's just based on the open table reviews. \nWe got seated right away at 6:45 and were able to select off the 3 course pre theater dinner menu. It was $38 a person and well worth it.\n\nWe each started with a Caesar salad and then split two entrees, as well as two desserts. \nThe Nutella lava cake is amazing, one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth, and the ice cream it's served with is just as good. \n\nOur table kind of sucked, it was tucked back right next to the kitchen, but it wasn't too bad. \n\nThis place was a value and a hit, something I don't often expect to find on the strip!

We shared the caesar salad. The crouton were filled with polenta and we were surprised when we bit into these and weren't sure what it was? We were not a fan of them but the salad was tasty. The meatballs were superb as an app along with the garlic chesee toast. The sunday gravy was amazing as was the chicken parm. A few suggestions, lower the shades when the sun is blaring in as you need your to wear your shades and they are running around like busy bees to catch someone to do it. Don't be so pushy on pushing 'the special' as we knew everyone wanted something differeant and we asked way too many times. Be aware that you will not have a conversation at the table as it's way to loud.

The food selection was okay. What they don't do is replenish food when they are almost empty. They wait until everything is gone, take the plate away, and bring a fresh one. This takes time and while they are doing this that item is not available. The food at the kids table was fun. The pizza was room temperature despite being under a lamp. Would I go back--no. There are too many buffets, at a better value, for me to go back. It was convenient to friends who were in town. Being a local, to pricey.

What a disappointing experience. The service was horrible and we almost left. After watching the commercial that plays in our room, we decided we have got to try this. Food was NOT GOOD. Calamari was not cooked good, mozzarella tomato salad was bland ( we have had mozzarella at Carrabbas that tasted wayyy better) our Sunday Gravy dish was so extremely salty we didn't eat it. Real bummer but I have to say we did have the bread and olive oil and I almost knew that if they got that flavor wrong, the rest was gonna be questionable. The olive oil did not taste high quality and balsamic was so over powering. Probably the worst thing. NOT 1 PERSON ever came to our table to ask if we were enjoying our food. What did we enjoy** kicking mule and the rigatoni pasta was good in fact the sauce on the rigatoni was more enjoyable than the gravy. Will not go back.

Went to Buddy V's to celebrate a birthday. Food was generally good, 'New Jersey' family-type Italian; prices were high. The restaurant was very busy and extremely noisy, making it very difficult to converse. Tables were very close together, so you really felt like you were dining with the people next to you. Service was a little slow, but I attribute that to the volume of business that night.\nEverything was OK, but I had hoped for better since it was a special occasion. One thing that really bothered me - the server actually ask us for a generous tip at the end of the meal. I thought was extremely unprofessional (especially since he and the busser were not that good). I won't return or even recommend this restaurant just because of that!

We chose Buddy V's because it's family friendly and the reviews I had read were above average. I was disappointed in the quality of the food, the lack of flavor in our entrees and the manner in which the waiter snuck in a $12 order of garlic bread by inferring it was included with our meal. The Caesar salad had zero garlic in it and could be described as bland. The kids ordered strawberry lemonades which were $10 each....that does not say 'family friendly' to me. Even though our waiter was sneaky with the garlic bread, he still provided great service during a very busy time at the restaurant. Overall, the food lacked flavor and that is why I would not recommend Buddy V's.

Made on-line reservations about 2 weeks in advance. Wanted to go there while we were in Vegas at a convention. When we arrived they could not find our reservation, no biggie, we were seated!\n\nOur waiter took our drink order after being seated about 10 minutes. My friend ordered a glass of wine, I ordered a glass of iced tea. The waited brought the wine, which by the way was a pretty weak pouring of wine, about 5-6 sips. Kind of annoying for the price of a glass. My tea finally came after about 15 minutes after I ordered it. \n\nWe started our meal with the cheesy garlic bread, YUM! It was hot, cheesy and garlicky, just the way I imagined it! My friend opted for the spaghetti with the bolognese sauce. It came to the table hot and she said it was DELISH! My choice was the lasagna. So glad I ordered it because it was fantastic! The portion was enough to share. \n\nSo when you are in Vegas visit Buddy V's....so yummy!

With so many choices in restaurants in Las Vegas it's hard to pick the best of the best while in town for a short trip. We dined here on Saturday night as a party of six. We were seated by a window with a view of the strip and our dining experience began. We began by ordering a few appetizers such as the The salami and cheese plate as well as the mozzarella Carozza and the meatballs. All were simply delicious. For our entrées, a few people ordered the Mediterranean sea bass one had the spaghetti and meatballs but the showstopper for sure was the veal chop. Wow, we just couldn't get over how delicious the food was. Some of us are from New Jersey and New York so you know we are going to be very picky with our Italian food.

Met with former co-workers while they were here in Vegas at a trade show. We wanted a lesser costly restaurant on the Strip that takes reservations. We also have diverse palates. We started with the calamari, nicely done and the peppers were a hit with us all. My entree of scallops was delicious and the presentation beautiful. The other 3 in the party had pasta dishes, all were quite pleased with their choices. We all shared a side of the sautéed kale, all of us loved it. The very busy and crowded Buddy V's did a fine job at having good food in good portions that while not cheap by any means, did not feel like the usual rip-off of many restaurants on the Strip. Service was only slow from the bar. My glass of wine was received as I was taking my last bites of dinner. We purposely left enough room to share a couple of desserts. They were excellent. My hubby and I shared the 'birthday cake' and my friends shared a creme brûlée.

Though known for his incredible pastries, as evident in the long lines next door at the sister property, 'Carlo's Bake Shop,' his restaurants Buddy V's proves that he's more than the 'Cake Boss!' \nEvery dish was a taste sensation starting with Buddy's Caprese salad which felt like it was fresh off the garden. Our friend got the Seared octopus and thought it was the most amazing thing she every tasted with the texture not being 'chewy' and the flavor everlasting. I had the Meatball sub which I was hesitant to try. I mean, a meat ball is a meat ball and I had just had one at another restaurant the night before claiming to be the best. WOW! I was blown away and could not believe how different and perfect Buddy's Meatball was! The texture was firm but not dry, the flavor of the meat was tasteful and not overly seasoned while the sauce was complimentary and not overwhelming. THE best meatball sub ever! \nThe Coup d'état was the dessert! Though incredibly full, as the portions were generous, we opted for the Lobster Tail because we noticed how long the line was at the pastry shop. The Lobster tail was so good that we almost cried. A soft, flaky pastry shell with custard that was not overbearingly sweet coupled by fresh fruit. A heavenly taste!\nBuddy V's is now our favorite lunch spot and we will continue to visit upon every return to Vegas!

Good dinner. Great service. We enjoyed grandmas meatballs for an appetizer along with Caesar salad. All were good especially the meatballs. We veal marsalla which was just okay but the lasagna was wonderful. It was a big portion. With sides 2 people could have split it. It came out so hot we had to let it sit for a bit to cool. The service was great. My way glass was always full and the server was very personable. Nice night out with good food and drink.

Our experience was over the top. Our out-of-town guests were very impressed as were we. Being locals we have the opportunity and luxury to experience the best Las Vegas restaurants year in and year out. So when I say the food was fabulous I have a lot to compare it with. I will highlight the Chicken Piccata because it's the best I've tasted. The Eggplant Parm was also a winner. My husband had the Chicken Parm and said he'd order it again. We also ordered the Kids Pizza which was unbelievably delish. Luck kids. \n\nThe staff was extremely attentive making us feel like valued customers from the moment we entered the restaurant. Thank You to Manager, Sean F. , for treating us with the customer service that Vegas is famous for. It looks like Buddy knows how to do it right so we will return to Buddy V's again.

We love Buddy! Have been to Vegas several times and tried to go there to the restaurant, been to the bakery more times than my hand can count. Couldn't get a reservation because to packed. Anyways, finally got a reservation. We couldn't be more disappointed and feel bad because this reflects Buddy. The music was so loud we couldn't have conversation let Alone hear the waiter. The waiter was very unattentive. The food mediocre. We would have gotten dessert but couldn't get out of there FAST ENOUGH. We wanted a nice leasure relaxing dinner and got one that made us tense and definitely not relaxed. Wouldn't come back unless the music was pleasant. The restaurant was decorated so cute. We loved that!!! Unfortunately the negative far outweighed the cute restaurant.

I'm a Cake Boss fan, so I had to try Buddy V's for dinner while in Vegas. The bread was very tasty, but I didn't want to fill up on bread. The chicken marsala was fantastic. There was so much food, I couldn't eat it all. I had to save room for dessert! I had Lisa's Warm Nutella Cake. The Nutella cake was absolutely luscious.

The only reservation we could get was 4pm. When we arrived and were seated we found out that only a special 'Sunset' menu was available between 3pm and 5pm. There were few choices and the prices were high...my Spaghetti with Clams was a lunch portion and cost $25.00. It did not come with anything for that price...no bread, no salad, nothing. The sauce was watery and did not stick to the linguine so every bite was bland. The Mahogany Clams were tiny and there were only 8 of them. The Parmesan offered by the waitress was already grated in a bowl and she administered it over my pasta with a spoon instead of fresh grated. The sound from outside the restaurant filters in and the noise from the open kitchen was loud...probably because they were preparing for the dinner rush. I was excited to eat here but found it was a great disappointment.

I had the 'Bone-in' Veal Parmesan featured on the TV segment and it was the best Veal Parmesan ever!!! Super tender, cooked perfectly and a good amount of cheese on top. \n\nWe also shared a meat and cheese board, which was amazing. The different cheeses and meats they selected were perfect, as was the toast they included. Perfectly toasted with some kind of fresh herbs. \n\nFor desert we went with the Warm Nutella Chocolate Cake. The cake was great but the Salted Caramed ice cream stole the plate.

A restaurant opened by someone famous doesn't guarantee or even imply that you will have a positive dining experience. Buddy Vs was an unexpected delight. I made the reservation thinking the marvelous smells wafting from the restaurant above Carne Vino was coming from Buddy Vs...not so, that's Grimaldi's (smells great, we'll try another time). Disappointedly I hearded my party of 10 towards Buddy Vs and was expecting the worst. Upon arrival there was a wait because I upped my party from 6-10 only half an hour before. It was a short wait, and we were ushered to the chefs table, front and center. We were greated by Georgio, our waiter and the experience began. At Georgio's suggestion we selected the tasting menu and wine paring (Georgio is quite a salesman...my husband said he was going to offer him a job ). Brilliant choice. It was outstanding. Each dish in each course was absolutely wonderful. Georgio was attentive and a really nice guy to boot. Everyone raved after the meal and we're still talking about it the next day.

We had a great time here. We were so happy this is where we decided on going. Would recommend it to all. \nBack story - We were tired from a long day of driving around and just wanted a good meal. We didn't want the $50 buffet deal at a couple of the local restaurants, so we narrowed it down to three. This one we were worried that it was simply going on it's 'star power' and the food would be as Italian as Ragu. But the other places were too far or voted down. So low expectations, we went. Great place. Service was spot on, glass never got low for water (huge for LV!), food came promptly, waitress was attentive, but not overbearing. So many places in Vegas, this is a 'do-over' when we have friends. Calamari was some of the best we've had, everyone enjoyed their entrees - I had the Valastro Sunday Gravy - supper, pipping hot, couldn't eat it all. Salmon was very good as well.\nAnd at $26 an entree, much better than the buffets. \nOnly draw back - house wine was very OK, wish they had more selections by the glass. \nWe shared a desert -- had too, Italian Birthday Cake -- and very, very good.

I chose this place for my 30th birthday dinner for me and my friends I had made a reservation for a party of 5, two of our party was running late so we went to check in and get the Table and the hostess very rudely responded that they needed the majority of the party there I then stated we were majority she then turned to her coworker and then turned back with attitude we need 4 so you can wait in the bar. We ended up sitting at the bar and ordered there since we were short on time and after the other two showed up and we had gotten our food the hostess came up and said we could now be seated. The hostesses were very rude and obviously don't know that 3 is 60% of 5 so it technically is the majority other than that the bartender was a sweetheart and the food was delicious !

I LOVED this place. It's sort of like a family bistro style which is typical of the Valastro family. As soon as I saw Buddy Valastro had a restaurant in Vegas, I made the reservation. The tomatoes sauce is the best one I have tried in my life. Also is right in front of Carlo's bakery and since I'm a huge fan of cake boss, I was very excited.

There are too many great Italian restaurants in Vegas to eat pasta that is just MEH. My husband and I dined here before the Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon and were disappointed by lackluster food. I ordered the Carbonara, which turned out to be a cream laden heavy tribute to sodium, but lacked real flavor. My husband's sausage and broccoli rabe orecchiette was a far better dish, but nothing to write home about. Will not be returning.

We arrived 10 minutes early and were seated right away. Within a couple minutes our server was at the table asking if we would like ice water to start. She let us know about the current special which was for restaurant week and made a couple recommendations with regards to that. There were some dry breadsticks on the table which were nothing to write home about but a server brought us some focaccia bread with balsamic and olive oil for dipping. It was warm and tasted very fresh. \nI ordered the cheese ravioli and my husband ordered the Caesar salad, sea bass and cannoli for dessert which was part of the restaurant week deal. The food was very good. The sea bass was cooked properly and I thought it was a little bland but still tasted good. You could really taste the lemon in it and the skin was still on so that part was very crispy. The ravioli portion size was perfect for me - there were about 6 or 7 ravioli on the plate. For dessert I ordered the warm Nutella cake (like a lava cake) which was at the recommendation of the server (and it sounded really good) and it was awesome!! Very rich and I couldn't finish it all. My husband had the cannoli and it was excellent also. \nI found the service attentive - our water glasses were refilled 2 or 3 times during the meal and our plates were cleared promptly. All in all it was 1 hour from when we arrived and were completely finished our meals. \nI would return to this restaurant the next time we come to Vegas.

We came here for my husband's birthday dinner. The ambiance is a nice mix of casual and modern style. Service was very attentive and we got food in a good amount of time. The restaurant serves the bread as one piece on your plate, which was a little strange but it was warm and tasty. For appetizer we ordered meatballs and garlic bread. Both were really great, and good sized portions. Would definitely recommend either of these items.\n\nFor dinner my husband and I ordered the chicken parmesan which came with a side of spaghetti. Everything was delicious, very homestyle cooking. Also, I had a sweet cocktail recommended by the waitress and was nice. For dessert, we had the Italian birthday cake, it was only OK, and restaurant did not comp it despite the fact that we were celebrating a birthday. \n\nOverall, we enjoyed our experience here and would definitely come back.

We went to Buddy V's before a show at the hotel. Our meal started with the best Negroni I have every had - evidently their special recipe. On to a olive, meat and cheese plate - a thoughtful combination and very yummy. Our mains were carbanara and lasagna - standard italian fair but only really great when prepared well as these were. Large portions - more than enough to share. We were too full to have dessert so no report there. Excellent service that was a perfect balance between knowledgeable and attentive.

This was the highlight of our Vegas trip. It was by far the best Italian food I ever had. Our waiter suggested we let him serve us family-style, so we handed the menus back to him and waited for the surprise. We were served 3 courses, none of which disappointed us. The meatballs were to die for. I could eat those every day for the rest of my life and not get tired of them. We had some picky eaters with us, and every one of them raved about each and every item they served us. I can't wait to go back.

The food was amazing, the service was incredible, the music was outstanding (oldies). The only surprise was that it was my birthday and everyone at the restaurant knew it. When it came to dessert, I just assumed it was free because the waiter told us that we have to have dessert for my birthday. I ordered the cheesecake and it came with 'Happy Birthday, Toni' on the plate. When we got the bill, they added it on. I was very disappointed. It was only $9 but it's the principle of the thing, what if I didn't order dessert?? I would still go there again. The food was so good. A bit over priced in my opinion.

Was excited to try this restaurant, but I was disappointed. First off, it was very noisy, at least where we were seated. We were in the main part of the restaurant, but we were pretty close to the bar where there was live music. It was difficult to have a conversation and we were very happy when they took a break. The food was fine, but nothing special. I had the shrimp with capellini and my husband had the lasagna (which I liked better than my dish). We had cannolis for dessert and they were excellent. The service was very slow. It was difficult to get the attention of our server - maybe because it was so noisy. Plus, apparently, you have to ask for bread.

I had been looking forward to going there for a long time. I hosted eight guests. Some foodies and some not. While the service was average to good, the food was really not good at all. The chicken parm had some sort of foul tasting bread crumbs on it and the filets themselves did not seem to be hand pounded, I'm betting processed.... The sauce also was not that good but the pasta was great. We ordered Garlic bread and it never came. I tried a few other dishes and was not impressed. The only thing that was good were the meatballs. Seems odd to me that the place is so packed. I guess everyone wants to go for the same reason I did, the show. No one at our table said they would be back.

Bellissimo!!! We are from New York and flew in to spend a few nights in Las Vegas. My first pick was Buddy V's and I was so right! Located in the Venetian Casino and Resort across from Carlos Bakery where there is always a line. Make a reservation for the restaurant and ask for a window booth seating with a view of the Strip! The food was absolutely perfect and delicious. Garlic bread rocks! Appetizers are delicious - large portions just like New Yorkers like! I had the Bone in Veal Chop and dreamed about the left overs all night long. My 14 year old son had spaghetti and meatballs and loved it. My husband enjoyed his meal too and especially the wine! Service could not have been better. Tables far apart so you don't feel like you are on top of your neighbors. Venue is just beautiful - chandeliers are decorated like cake beaters! Open kitchen and just a uniquely decorated restaurant. Refreshing for Las Vegas and all the bling! Dessert was of course the best! Dessert Menu was in a small photo album of Buddy's family photos ~ so unique! We ordered a Lobster Tail for dessert and split it. What can I say! For mothers day we are traveling to his bakery in NY. I hope to get a glimpse of Buddy that day. That would be a fabulous mothers day treat. Can't wait for more sweets to the max! xoxo Buddy V - Love Cake Boss, your restaurant and You!!!! Ciao

We were excited for the opportunity to dine at Buddy V's. Reservations were a big plus as nobody wants to stand around waiting for a table when on limited vacation time. The food was excellent, which unfortunately isn't always the case in Vegas. It's not much more expensive than dining at your local Olive Garden, but the quality doesn't even compare. To make the experience even better; you can order desserts that are offered at Carlos's across the way without having to deal with the lines there! There was nothing disappointing about this visit.

Hi there, \n\nWe recently visited the restaurant for my mothers 50th birthday party. I had booked several months prior as I had visited your restaurant last year and really enjoyed it especially being a fan of cake boss. When we arrived the woman at the front desk did not say anything and continued to look at the computer. It took another girl who was lovely to approach us and she was told by the other woman at the front desk to advise us to wait (our table had been reserved) we waited 10 minutes before being shown to our table. It took for my mother to say she couldn't stand for long because of an injury to her leg before we were seated. our waiter was lovely however what ruined the night was we were offered the fine dining experience which we were advised the entrees included chicken, beef and pasta. This was perfect for us as this is the dishes we prefer. Our starters were lovely and could not fault but our entrees came out to the opposite of what we had been advised which was 2 fish entrees and one beef. At the time we should have complained but both myself and my partner did not want to start complaining on my mothers birthday. When the waiter did ask why myself and my mother did not have the fish we did advise we didn't like fish but we ate the beef and that was lovely In which he advised we would get a discount. We never did, we simply had the receipt put on the table with note of having to pay $55 for gratuities.Overall I felt disappointed as I had excitedly spoke about the restaurant in the upcoming weeks prior to our visit. This is a once in a lifetime holiday of for my mother as we live in Scotland. We also paid for our buddy's glasses to bring home with us and we were not given them when we were leaving although we had asked once.\n\nI think if that if fish entrees are being served then this should be mentioned before they are ordered as fish is not to everyone's liking. \n\nKind Regards, \nStefy

I usually don't order Italian food out but I took a chance at Buddy V's and definitely glad I did. I had chicken cutlet Parmesan . It was the best I have ever had. You get 2 large pieces of chicken; along with spaghetti and we had garlic toast with it. The staff is very efficient from the waiters all the way to the bus boys. I was also impressed when I had them put my leftovers in a to go box. They did not throw everything into a container like most do. They arranged it just like they would on your dinner plate. They separated the bread from the dinner and put everything in sturdy containers and bagged it up; they even put utensils into your bag which you don't often see. When I return to Vegas I will definitely go back to this restaurant. The only thing I was disappointed in was that I didn't get to meet Buddy.

We ate at Buddy V's prior to our show at the Wynn. Two of us ordered the theater special which was an entree, salad and dessert all ordered from a limited menu. TONS of food-actually way too much! The other person ordered a regular entree and again, a huge portion. Bread was delicious, the rest of the food was very good. Like all restaurants in Vegas, it's a little pricey for what you get but we were in and out in plenty of time to walk over for our show.\n\nWe had an early reservation and actually showed up earlier than that and the restaurant was able to seat us immediately. \n\nRequest a table away from the windows.

Seating was like a diner, booths for larger groups only which means you sit next to other people with a space between the tables. The service was friendly but the noise around was loud, banging dishes, couldn't hear music. The food looked good. I had steak pizzaiola. The steak was broiled and cooked to order. However, the steak wasn't cooked in the sauce. The sauce was only on top. The steak was not a quality steak but a grocery store steak I would bbq myself. It was not seasoned; the dish was bland. My husband had linguine with clam sauce. Small portion of pasta but it was cooked well. The sauce had the potential to be delicious, unfortunately it was runny and bland. The clams in the sauce were very good. Overall, it was disappointing. I hope the restaurant takes time to develop a place that has great potential.

After ordering a pasta dish with no meat, my daughter received a pasta dish with chicken in it. After stressing that she was a vegetarian for a SECOND time, they returned with a new dish 5 minutes later that still had chicken in it.\n\nThis was the most disrespectful dining experience I ever witnessed. They totally disregarded the values of a teenager who does not want to eat animals. \n\nThey had no idea how important it is for some people to never eat meat. It was a true violation of her rights as a customer. This experience will be shared aggressively on social media along with alerts to numerous animal rights advocate groups.

Buddy V's is am excellent mid-level price point addition to the Las Vegas restaurant scene. If you are looking for that is fashioned, corner neighborhood Italian restaurant in a Strip location this will fit the bill. The red sauce is outstanding, the pasta first rate, and it has a good wine selection and a very good bar. The service was competent and professional if a little indifferent. The only, slight, negative I can think of is that a restaurant made famous by the 'Cake Boss' should have a less pedestrian dessert list.

Fun and yummy night out at Buddy V's with party of 6... Grandparents and family of 4 with kids 9 and 7. Had researched the kids menus in advance and it did not disappoint! Both kids got spaghetti and meatballs with side of broccoli. Very tasty and homemade like. Adults got salads, sea bass, salmon and the prix fix special. No complaints. Polenta 'croutons' were amazing. Nutella cake and Canolis for dessert were decadent and worth the splurge. Drinks are pricey but prices to be expected in Vegas. We were on the early side with and 5:30 dinner so it was still kid friendly and quite casual in and Italian 'kitchen' type setting, music and the clanking of the kitchen in the background. Would recommend this spot for all around great casual Italian kitchen restaurant experience.

I was in Vegas for a trade show and I attended a group dinner at Buddy V's. The food, service and ambiance were excellent. Later in the week, myself a colleague were looking for a place to go for dinner, so we surfed the web, looking at the various menus (and pricing) for each restaurant. We were shocked by what we found and almost lost our appetites, but when we looked at Buddy V's again, we found a wonderfully broad menu (the group dinner had been pre-selected so we hadn't seen everything they offered) and exceptionally reasonable prices! We went back and were blown away by the food and the service. Top Shelf! I had the 'Nonna's Sunday Gravy'. That was one of the most outstanding dishes I've ever had in an Italian restaurant. Buddy V's is my new 'go to' spot in Vegas!

We waited another 20 min. and then was seated out in the hall way . Extremly disappointment experience. We sat out in the hallway with no other patrons for the entire meal.

We reserved a table about 3-weeks in advance and we're looking forward to an enjoyable dinner our first day in Vegas based on the positive reviews. \n\nThe restaurant sent an email and called to confirm our reservation that day. But when we arrived they had sold out the entire restaurant to a convention group. \n\nThey sat us in an open air aisle way no where near the restaurant that was roped off with about 10 patio style tables. It was literally by an outdoor escalator with bus noise and fumes from the street below.\n\nThey acted like nothing was wrong and only offered an apology after I complained and asked to see the manager.\n\nA women at the table next to us unfortunately started to have a medical issue and they called emergency response. We decided to leave at this time .\n\nI'm sure the food at the restaurant is good based on the many positive reviews, but the management is inconsiderate and focused on maximizing profits versus customer service. Rather than apologize and offer to move my reservation to other night when we spoke on the phone earlier that day, they only cared about confirming I was going to show up.\n\nWith the huge convention in town and no forewarning from Buddy V's we could not get a table at any of the other restaurants in the area.\n\nI'm sure they will continue to do a good business, but personally I can't recommend an establishment that could be so unprofessional in dealing with a situation like this. There are too many other good choices.

We were hungry, and wanted to get a nice lunch our first day in Vegas. We stayed at the Venetian, and had heard of the Cake Boss. The meal was far less than stellar. My wife and I each ordered salads; mine with the addition of shrimp. \n\nI swear, it is no exaggeration, it was as if the kitchen poured a can of garbanzo beans onto my plate. I gave my wife three spoonful of them, and ate as many as I could (I was hungry), but even then there was half a can's worth left on my plate. The shrimp; there were only four smallish ones on the salad, were so-so. \n\nWe left very dissatisfied with the meal and with the overall experience. No one cared too much. I showed the person clearing my table (who was assisting with our service), and she said she would tell the kitchen. We left without any response from our server, and then when the bill came the credit card machine was not working. They had to do it the old-fashioned way of taking an imprint. \n\nHopefully, you'll have a better dining experience than we did, and if not, I would expect Buddy Vs to be out of there if what we experienced is commonplace. I sure hope not.

So we stood there and waited 10 minutes. We then asked if we could have a booth, since there were two booths open and they had a gorgeous view. The hostess said those booths are for 6 or more parties. We were seated at a table, chairs were uncomfortable and we couldn't cross our legs because of the table 'lip' underneath. After we got our appetizer, the hostess sat a table of two at one of the booths while still a lot of tables were open in the restaurant.

While we had a very pleasurable experience while dining at Buddy V, there was one unmistakable flaw. That is that the seafood that was being served at the surrounding tables did not have the fresh seafood ocean smell, but the rather disgusting bad two day old unrefrigerated odor that seafood should never have.

Whether it was the crowd or the acoustics or Super Bowl energy, it was not a good evening to eat at Buddy Velastro's.

On our recent trip to Las Vegas, we returned to Buddy V's. The first time my girlfriends and I stumbled upon it looking for a last-minute dinner. I had the panzanella and Venetian margarita. It was wonderful. I have wanted to return for the mac and cheese, which my friend had, the panzanella, and Venetian margarita since. This time did not disappoint either. The mac and cheese is the right combination of cheesy and creamy, but not heavy or thick. The bread crumb topping makes it one of the best mac and cheeses I have ever had. Plus, there are peas in it so you feel healthy. This time we also shared the Caesar salad, which was fabulous--those polenta croutons are to die for! We over-ordered and had Buddy's pizza too. Of course it was good, but it is hard to top that mac and cheese and polenta croutons. Our server was polite, casual, and attentive, but not overly bothersome. There was live music during our dinner. The hostess asked if we wanted the window seat close to the band, or if we would prefer something less noisy not by the window. We chose the later. Either way, the ambiance is lovely and the 'Michael Buble'esque' music made it even nicer. We will definitely be returning here on our next trip. Maybe we will save room for dessert because those look amazing.

Great food, enormous portions and excellent staff. Main dishes are large enough to share, so try different dishes. Plan on returning to Buddy V's next time in Vegas.

The food was good, the pricing was better than others but unfortunately it looked like the staff were not prepared for so many people. Service was with a smile but lacked efficiency. Would still go back though.

I ate at Buddy V's on January 20th before hopping on a long plane ride home. Exactly 8 hours after my scallops and polenta, I came down with violent food poisoning. This was the only place I ate that day. I snacked on pre packaged foods for lunch. Please please check your seafood in case someone else pays a lot of money for a nice dinner and gets terribly sick like I did.

Ordered Grandma's Meatballs as an appetizer at the suggestion of a fiend. They were the best we've ever had! Husband (picky eater) had the Carmelized Sea Scallops and raved about them. I had the Orecchiette and Italian Sausage. Delicious. We shared the side of Italian Greens. i don't usually eat kale.. but WOW - that dish was fabulous. We did not have drinks and our bill was $100. The wait staff was very very professonal and curtious. The service made me feel like we were at a fine dining restaurant.

Overall excellent experience. Only negative was I asked for a draft beer, server made a recommendation which I accepted. Turned out to be a $16 beer as it came with a specialty glass. Felt duped. Did not want the glass not would I have ordered it if told at the time. I would go back.

When we arrived the place was packed. They had sold out the restaurant for two large parties.\nWe had a reservation. So instead of telling us maybe we should reshedule we were seated out in front of the place in a corridor of the hotel in front of a public bathroom. My first instinct was to say NO WAY! But, I didnt. Very sorry we didn't because we were just an after thought. Right in front of the hotel/malls public bathrooms. Service was so so. The waiter was really nice after dinner telling us the scoop. The place looked really cool after all the people left from the party. We did not get to enjoy any of it though. We spent $102.00 and the food was just ok. Like I said we were just an after thought. We really had looked forward to going there. In the end we were very disappointed.

We treated ourselves to a wonderful dinner at Buddy V's during our Vegas stay, and loved it! Main meals included the scallops and the tenderloin, with both being perfectly prepared and presented. Staff was very friendly and attentive to our table. We had a great view of the strip, and am glad to say the noise level was acceptable, allowing us to hold our conversation. This is one place we will look forward to returning to on our next visit!

Our brunch ressie was for 12:30 but they were able to take us at 11:30. We got a nice table in the bar and the combo began playing all of the old Rat Pack songs my mom listened to when I was a kid. Very relaxing, and the food and adult beverages were awesome. Our server was pleasant, informative, and attentive but did not hover or rush us. The only negative -- I was disappointed in the cannoli, it had no flavor. Maybe it was a bad day for the pastry chef. Will definitely return when in Vegas again.

Buddy V's is a wonderful place to go for a romantic date, family get-together, or special occasion. My family and I celebrated my birthday here last week, and we had a very nice time! Everything was delicious, the decor was beautiful, chairs were comfortable, great strip view, and very friendly staff. I am a local and normally avoid the strip, but I will be coming back to Buddy V's often. I recommend the eggplant, garlic cheese bread, chicken parm and lasagna. I also had the chocolate moose cake from the bakery across from the restaurant. It was to die for!

Living in Las Vegas you never have to worry about finding places to eat. You do need to worry about whether or not a trip to Las Vegas Boulevard is worth it. Well if you're headed to Buddy V's in the Venetian you need not worry because you will definitely enjoy the atmosphere and love the food! Located directly across from Carlo's Bakery Shoppe this restaurant is definitely on my 'repeat' list! The food is just like momma's and is never in short supply. You will get your money's worth and probably leave with a hug in a carry out bag!! I must recommend if you plan on stopping by the bakery afterward order online while you're enjoying your meal and go pick it up afterward. It's a great way to skip the line!

Our experience at Buddy V's was exceptional. Our server was the best we have ever seen, Giorgio was our server. He was phenomenal, he clearly made our dining experience exceptional. The food was outstanding. Clearly the best dining experience of the four dinners we had in Las Vegas. I am recommending this restaurant to everyone and to ask for Giorgio.

This was our second visit to Buddy's. We did enjoy a nice somewhat quiet corner with a view of the Strip which seems to be a rarity in Vegas. We are use to dining with loud music blaring up above and loud obnoxious drunk females nearby ruining a romantic dinner. Food was almost perfect, we both had Chicken dishes which were excellent but our dessert, the canolli was a disappointment, very dry and bland compared to our last visit. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen that evening but it took FOREVER to get our dinner. The LONG wait for dinner and dry canolli dessert put a damper on things and led to a 4 star out of 5 rating. I would still come back, maybe something was amiss that evening in the kitchen?

Made reservations so we just walked right in. Server took a while to attend to us but we had about 4 different servers that came by to offer refills, bread and condiments very often. Food was great and views by the windows are amazing! Over all it was very enjoyable and literally feet away across from Carlos Bakery!

I treated my husband to a birthday weekend in Las Vegas and we stayed at the Venetian. My husband saw this restaurant and commented on it on how he'd love to eat there. Well, I made the reservation and showed up on a Sunday. I have to say that I was impressed by the service, the ambiance, and the yummy food. I especially loved that they made it special for my hubby with a special birthday treat- a cannoli. The next time my hubby and I go back to Vegas, we will definitely be stopping by again. Thanks for a great time Buddy V's!
