I wanted an intimate quiet place to have a special dinner, this was not what I expected. Very noisy. The food was mediocre. I thought owner was a baker, the cannolis were not all that great. If it wasn't for Peter our waiter, it wouldn't have been that great of an experience.

Server was too obsessed with the idea of up selling. So obsessed, that he did not even think about our questions or current order. Within 5 seconds of ordering a bottle of wine ($$) , he tried to talk us into a branded version of Sangria. Too many attempts to drive revenue... a total turnoff. Will not return.

The taste buds are in for a treat! The freshly baked focaccia bread hot from the oven is heavenly. Dip it into the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. A wide variety of Italian dishes. There are the traditional lasagna, brick oven pizzas, and delectable pasta dishes. The menu also offers a wonderful selection of seafood, chicken, veal, or vegetarian dishes as well. Portions are generous. Nice wine list to choose from. Cocktails and beer. Service is very good. Save room for dessert!

Bunch was awesome and so was our waiter. The food selection was great and it appealed to all 6 of us in our party. I recommend Buddy V 's to anyone who wants to get out with a group of gals. Everyone was friendly. We didn't feel rushed or like we were in a Vegas attraction. SEE YOU NEXT TIME!

Enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Buddy V's. There was a great variety of both breakfast and lunch fare as well as Buddy's decadent desserts. Staff were very attentive and pleasant. Very relaxed atmosphere - just what you want for a Sunday brunch!

We have eaten at Buddy V's many times. But this time we were seated right next to the kitchen and the noise level was almost unbearable. LOTS of dishes and pans clanging...... the cooks yelling, etc. We enjoy an energetic atmosphere, but our experience this time around was more chaotic and overwhelming than energetic.
We will dine here again, but will definitely ask for a table away from the kitchen

My husband and I dined at Buddy V's in LV The food was deliious and exactly as advertised - real Italian cooking. Meatballs were delicious as was the sauce. My husband LOVED the chicken parm. We also had the canoli and tirimisu. I am sad that there isn't a Buddy V's in NY!

The service was horrible and very slow at this restaurant. The food was OK but was way over priced. We were charged for 4 items over $80 that were not ours and the manager just told us that it sometimes happens there, that is not acceptable. We would never return or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Buddy V's has to be THE best Italian Restaurant that I have ever eaten at. Love our waiter, the food, the atmosphere, every single thing. I had a special request, and it was met cheerfully and exceeded my expectations. This will always be on my list of "must do's" on every trip to Vegas.

Restaurant was fantastic . I ordered lasagna and it was the beat ive ever had. Our server was amazing, I wish I knew his name . The only problem is that the hostesses are a little stuck up but since you don't have to deal with them much, this isn't an issue. Go there now!

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 music where our table was was so loud we could not hear each other talk either. It just seemed like we just had a bad experience.

I had Buddy's Sunday Dinner (rigatoni with meatballs, sausage, pork and red sauce) it was excellent! I would highly recommend ordering this dish if you want an old fashioned Italian Sunday dinner. I'm Italian and this was one of the best sauces I've ever had. I also had the Nutella chocolate lava cake with ice cream which was delicious!! The Cake Boss happen to be at the restaurant the night I was there and graciously welcomed his customers by posing for pictures. He was so friendly and took pictures with all the kids and held the small babies too!!

The brunch was everything I expected and more. The music of the band was a nice touch. Everything we ate was fantastic. We especially loved the pasta carbonara. We were so full from the meal we didn't think we could eat dessert but somehow we managed and were glad we did. Best tiramisu!

Buddy V's was a very nice spot for brunch. The atmosphere was lively and the live music gave a nice background. The food choices were exceptional, delicious and quite varied. The service staff was very friendly and attentive. My only disappointment was that the a la carte option was taken off the table. Recent surgery made the buffet option less of a value for me. I would definitely recommend Buddy V's to folks with the ability to enjoy the fine array of delicious food. The Bloody Mary bar was outstanding.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The food was amazing, everything was delicious and our server, Georgio, made us visit twice in 5 days! The family style serving is spectacular and the dishes never tail to surprise or impress. You will not regret a meal here.

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.

Buddy V's makes it just like mama used to. Actually, in my case, more like papa. This is real down-home southern Italian cooking, with tons of flavor.
Try the Sunday Gravy - it will take you back to Sunday dinner with the family, in Brooklyn.

This is our second visit to this restaurant . There was five of us. We ended up trying several dishes. The eggplant paramason was outstanding! Seriously the best we ever had anywhere! The chicken pacata was very good. The sea bass didn't seem like it was sea Bass? The texture was a give away. The desserts weren't up to par .still we highly recommend this restaurant

It's Italian food, so it's kind of hard to screw up. It was good, but with that being said, it wasn't great or better than good. It was average food- Olive Garden equivalent food, but for 2 X's the price. I've had way better, more authentic Italian food, for way less money. Probably wouldn't ever go back.

We ate at Buddy V's for the 1st time....my husband had lasagna and I had cheese ravioli. Both were very good but after having appetizer meats and cheese bread, we didn't have enough room for the very large dinner portions. The lasagna is extremely dense and filling...we could have easily split it and still had some left! The cheese ravioli was very good. We had no room for dessert, but I'm sure if we had room....it would have been as good as everything else we had that evening!
