Buddy V's at The Venetian Ratings and Reviews
Buddy's is one of our favorites that consistently delivers! We have been to Little Italy in NYC, and this place makes you feel like you are right there! It's less expensive than the "famous" chef restaurants downstairs at Venetian/Palazzo, but the food is on par with all of them. They have all your favorite Italian dishes, with great service!
The service was GREAT right from the start. The host immediately had the authority after walking us to our table to honor a request to sit at table adjacent that was bring swept as this was a window view table. No hesitation, she asked for a minute to have table swept and immediately prepared.
The waiter and the support staff immediately started service even with a full house. Great team work for service.
Fresh bread and olive oil was nice. The meatballs are worth it just to dip the bread. Kid's spaghetti was high quality and nice with the meatballs to start. Pasta perfectly cooked. Caesar was large enough to share with 3 and a real Caesar dressing. It was really good with unique croutons.
The Brocalini was great. But the lasagna was best and perfect. The wines are appropriate and match nice.
Prices are very reasonable considering location and level of service. The service team was great and a joy. They treated my daughter with respect and wasn't condescending despite her age, 6 years.
I'm very dissappointed at myself for bypassing this place all my previous trips to Vegas. This is now my go to place for Italian on the strip. Very homey and tasty. Really high quality and straight forward. Nothing complex needed.
Service terrible. Food no way Buddy,cheese plate really ,no mozz. Mice bite bits of 3 pieces of cheese,2 pieces of prosiutto,4 small olives and the toasted bread was burnt and dry no way is this a cheeseboard. Being from Hoboken this is a shame. I cannot recommend my family and friends from Hoboken. Need major improvement needed with your male waiter, after we were done with the rubber calamata which we left some. The waiter brought the check never asked us if we wanted desert or coffee so then we paid and left. Never again.
Simply said. Fabulous! The ambience as soon as you come in. Happy Hour Drinks. Sangria was very good. Servers very attentive and friendly. We sat near the kitchen and watched all the action. Runs like a well oiled machine. Bryan talked to us. That was great. I can honestly say I have never had such great tasting food in my life.I'm 54. I don't usually get over excited by the taste of food. This time I almost cried with joy. Every single morsel made me want to sing and dance. I seriously could not get over the flavour. My sister thought the same. Bryan stopped by to talk to us. EVERY single person that works here is amazing. Thanks for giving us an evening to remember. Xo
Great Easter brunch! We loved the Italian twist on the meal. Delicious, fresh salads with the best croutons I've ever had, yummy " Sunday Style" scrambled eggs, freshly carved sausages, and hot bread pudding with caramel sauce for dessert was to die for.
I thought the separate bar for children was a great feature, too.
Our wait staff was highly attentive from the time we were seated through the entirety of the meal.
Oh! One more thing: We really liked the live music near our lovely window seat. The singer was very much in the style of Sinatra. Loved it!
The Chicken Parm was good size and the breading was crispy with plenty of cheese. Came with a side of pasta. But for $30 it was expensive considering no soup or salad was included. Very disappointed that a restaurant owned by a baker didn't offer homemade Italian bread or garlic bread or even bread sticks! The meatball appetizer was a joke, just 3 small meatballs that didn't taste homemade at all. The frozen ones I buy at samsclub were far bigger and better.
We have dined here several times and always a wonderful dining experience. We make this one of our destinations every time we stay at the Venetian. The staff there is awesome, always making sure everything is perfect. From the general manager, Chris, the chef, Bryan, Emily and Peter, always a perfect evening. The menu has many options and we have loved everything we have tried. They have a musician in the bar area and that is a nice bonus. We come here from New Orleans and know food, very well. This whole operation is a well oiled machine leaving nothing undone. Save room for the Nutella dessert! It is so worth the trip and any menu picks will never be a disappointment! We can't wait to go back! Thanks for such a wonderful dining experience this week!!

This is a must!! Especially if you love Italian food! Best Italian food I've ever had hands down. Not one bad thing I can say about this place and everyone seemed to love their dish. From that first bite you just start to melt in your seat..Can't wait to be back!
Buddy V's has turned into a must stop for our family when we visit Las Vegas which is usually a couple of times a year. Our favorites are the meatballs, chicken parm, garlic bread, polenta and veal chop Milanese. The service is wonderful! Great job Valastro family!
