Incredibly disappointed that I confirmed my reservation on open table and showed up for my birthday dinner at Buddy V’s to learn the restaurant has been closed for several weeks. It was incredibly frustrating to not learn of the closure before I paid to show up to the restaurant.

I was very impressed with the food that was served. I was celebrating my friend getting married and the food was delicious. The host was excellent. I will definitely go back when I come to Vegas again.

We decided at the last minute to have Father’s Day dinner at Buddy V’s. We were so happy that they re-opened for dine-in, after being closed due to Covid-19. Everything was fantastic, our server and the entire staff, service, food, presentation of our food and the overall atmosphere! Unfortunately, we were told that the restaurant would be closing again, after that night for approximately 6 weeks, due to unplanned needed repairs. Nonetheless, we will be returning once it re-opens!

Online reservations were easy to navigate. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and sat within 10 minutes. Our busboy kept our drinks full. I didn’t catch his name but he was very friendly and kept busy clearing away our dirty plates. Our server was very pleasant as well. He continued to check on us, offered deserts and helped us with last minute add-ons. Food was amazingly delicious! We ordered the garlic bread appetizer, cheese ravioli, Buddy’s Favorite pizza, and the fish plate. Everything tasted homemade and fresh. We will be making another reservation next time we’re in Vegas.

Exactly as it’s described. Classic Italian food and it’s excellent! Read the menu first, if you see something you normally like, you will love it here. Service was outstanding as well. There are a ton of food options in Vegas but now, all I want to do is go back to Buddy Vs.

Ordered garlic bread as an appetizer, chicken fettuccini Alfredo, and buddy’s favorite pizza. The garlic bread was very good as was the marinara sauce that came with it. My chicken fettuccini Alfredo was dry and rubbery like it had been boiled. The sauce was bland. My husband said his pizza was ok. The crust was very good. The caramelized onions added a weird flavor to the pizza that he did not like. If he had chosen different pizza toppings he thinks he would have liked it more.

Food was marginal. Didn’t offer cracked pepper or Parmesan cheese. Also cleanliness was in question. Watched a worker spray a table and turn it over immediately without any dwell time to allow the solution to take affect.

We came for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Our experience couldn’t have been better. We had the Margarita pizza and Nonna’s Lasagna with a side of fries. We also enjoyed some cocktails. Everything was on point, amazing food, great taste, and what’s best is all servers/hostess were wearing masks and keep customers at a safe distance. This place is a must! For great food, amazing quality, and a festive atmosphere, Buddy V’s is the place!

The service was very friendly and attentive. We made a reservation earlier in the day for dinner. We ordered a few different dishes to share because we couldn't decide what we wanted and loved everything. We will definitely eat here every time we visit Las Vegas.

We were there when it was just opening from the Covid closure. My wife chose this place because it had good ratings.
I thought the food was good but a bit overpriced.
Thought check in host could have been a little nicer and courteous because we checked in a bit early. She could have said something like, “Insee you are a bit early but we have no tables to seat you at the moment” instead of come back in 30 minutes. :(
No real complaints. Our server was pleasant and food came out timely.

We were seated next to the show kitchen which was less than ideal. Service was spotty but the marinara is on point.

We had Ariss. He was amazing. Service was over top fantastic. The veal pharm and rigatoni vodka was to die for. Would most definitely come back next time we are in town. Celebrated our anniversary and had an amazing chocolate cake and Caramel ice cream. 5 stars service and food.

Our waitress was Casey (sp?). She was kind attentive and super cute to talk to. The food was very good. We walked back to our hotel (MGM) to work it off but it was worth every yummy bite! Recommend the Scampi and the linguine carbonara. In addition who knew he polenta croutons for the Caesar salad would be so unexpectedly delicious! I completely enjoyed by Caprese salad, but I was hoping for Basil. There was none yet it was still mouth watering! To finish it off we shared the tiramisu. One of the best we’ve had! Prego.

We made reservations just because we were sure what to expect. It took us a while to find the place! We weren’t familiar with the Venetian but we found it! The bread that everyone talked about was delicious! We got the chicken fettuccine and chicken Parmesan which was very good. The chicken Parmesan came with 2 pieces of chicken so it was plenty. I couldn’t eat the second prince. We also asked for a side salad and it was the perfect size! So dessert we got the “lobster tail”. It was okay. We wish we would of got the cannelloni but will try it next time! Over all we loved it! Super clean. Waiter was awesome along with the busboy! Can’t wait to come back!

Our food was salty, service was slow, we barely saw the waiter, prices were ok, they sat us in the most uncomfortable chairs and we asked if we could move to a booth they say the booth were not available (Social distancing)two minutes later they sat people on them, they didn’t had complete the dessert menu available.
