Absolutely awesome service, Giorgio Valastro was a great host and provided excellent attention and dining recomendations to my family, this made dining at Buddy V's a truly outstanding experience and a great birthday celebration, needles to say overall a very memorable moment, we will definitely be back soon.

This dinner started off wonderfully with a positive atmosphere in a vibrant location. One meal came out great, but the other was absolutely horrible. A manager came over and was hounding us for how we could say this meal was so terrible. It was pretty annoying and made our experience go downhill.

Came for my mother's birthday. Let me tell you about my mother:
- She was born in Calabria, Italy
- Loves Italian food (given), but almost never goes out for Italian food since we have it with family often and her standards are high.
- She does not like to spend money, everything is compared to a cheaper alternative and rarely thinks money is well spent at restaurants.
Our 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.
The 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.
The 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.
It was a night to remember, thank you to Buddy V's for making it special!

My husband & I always dine at Buddy V's as a date night, or an outing with family & friends. The service along with the fabulous ambiance, and the delicious food is exquisite . We would highly recommend Buddy V's for a special dinning experience in the Venetian hotel.

First visit to Buddy V's. Went based on research for best Cesar Salad Las Vegas. Was not disappointed. Excellent salad! Our server, Georgio was phenomenal. His meal and dessert recommendations matched the end result. Entrée and dessert was excellent. I had the chicken parmesan and my partner had the carbonara. Both were excellent. I had the cannoli and my partner had the Lisa's warm Nuetella Cake. Both were excellent. Cross service was top-notch. Very attentive and always checking on us to make everything was satisfactory.

I thought the prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. The meatballs were fantastic. Get the meatballs app for starters if you don't get them with your meal. I had Buddy's family gravy that came with pork shoulder, meatballs, lamb and sausage...best ever!

Unfortunately I wasn't as pleased with the seating arrangements in this place as I was with the food. The seating reminded me of a cafeteria style seating along the open kitchen. Very noisy, hot from the heat lamps and no privacy for conversation. I asked to be moved which the staff accommodated, but just right on the other side. Still too casual. I would ask for a booth when making a reservation.

We went to BuddyV for a friends Birthday dinner, which we had informed them of in advance, but nothing special was done nor was the event even acknowledged. Overall the restaurant was fine but the event felt rushed. We ordered a cocktail and before we even finished our appetizers arrived and then the main course arrived before we were done the appetizers. We felt so rushed we didn't even want a dessert. Anyway, I was so looking forward to the restaurant but I wouldn't say it lived up the all the hype.

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.

The food was outstanding and the service was great! The V's Sunday Dinner with assorted meats with Penne pasta was off the charts excellent! The server's wine suggestion was spot on. The cannoli dessert was excellent as well. I shall be back!

This was very disappointing. I've been watching cake boss for years and couldn't wait to dine here. The food was mediocre at best. If you're looking for a fancy liking restaurant with low prices you may enjoy this experience but the food was a total let down. The chicken penne a la vodka was flavour less and the pizza was subpar. The garlic bread was delicious but who screws up garlic bread.
They forgot about us after we checked in ...
They forgot about us after we checked in and seated about 4 groups before us before they realized it, then they marked us a a no show. But overall the food was really good and the servers were fine. I really loved the salads and pastas we tried, will definitely come back to try more just maybe not on a Saturday when they are a little flustered with the crowds.

Our server wasn't the best she ignored us most of the night. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday and ordered a cake we paid for it , I found out later that usually the dessert is suppose to be free if you are celebrating a birth, it felt like double standard as we had to pay for it
This is our favorite Italian restaurant ...
This is our favorite Italian restaurant in Las Vegas. We always stay at the Venetian and make sure to dine here at least twice, if not more. The whole staff from the general manager, Chris, the asst mgr, Sean , the executive chef, Brian , and our last server, Crystal, we're all so attentive and welcoming. We enjoy going to nice restaurants and this one is tops on our list, even in our city where great food is in abundance. We live in New Orleans and love fine dining. I always tell everyone about Buddy V's and to make a reservation since they will be full because of their great food and fun atmosphere. The Nutella dessert is to die for, as well as the side of pasta with the garlic and olive oil. Everything is awesome there and never a disappointment!! We look forward to going back!! Thanks for such a wonderful dining experience this past week!!!

I really enjoyed it. I had the Veal Parmesan Chop - "holy cow" .....delicious and unbelievable big. Wish.... I could have taken it with me but was flying out next morning. Really create. I love to cook Italian myself. Never have I had something so great. You're a fool if you don't visit this spot. Enjoy!!
