This past Tuesday, I was invited by a business associate for lunch and he suggested V's Italian Restaurant in Independence, MO, just outside the I-435 loop off of I-70 in the Kansas City metro area, not far from the sports complex. Normally I stay away from Italian Restaurants in the Midwest because I've come to learn that many of them... More

We were hungry and needing to satisfy a group of eight. Our hotel staff recommended V's. It was delicious. Our waitresses was incredibly friendly and helpful. Everyone's meal was great. We even filled-up two 19-year old men.

The buffet at V's is always a pleasure. V overseas the food and keeps everything hot and plentiful. Meatballs are delicious and the sauce is a tradition at V's.

As we travel cross country and are desperate to avoid the Applebee's & McDonalds that plague our nation, we use Trip Advisor to find gems like these. 2 blocks off the "I" and a 1000 miles from canned corporate foodstuffs is V's Italian Ristorante. The cinderblock exterior is well camouflaged, the waitstaff is friendly and welcoming and the interior is... More

We love going to V's, the service is excellent, friendly atmosphere, awesome food. We really like going for brunch, the bacon, eggs Benedict, fruit, the pasta bar, the mimosa is delicious as is the coffee to go with the desserts, so much to choose. For our budget the price is a little high for brunch so we save that for... More

I went to Sunday Brunch at V's and I was blown away! I didn't care for the sausage, but I was expecting it to be more of a breakfast sausage and I think it was more of an Italian sausage. Of course, it IS an Italian restaurant! The scrambled eggs were wonderful, the mimosa was too. My mom tried the... More

Was recommended to us by several people before our trip. Must admit that I was a bit apprehensive when we pulled up because it is in a neighborhood that has seen better days. We also had to fight the traffic that was leaving the Chiefs game that Sunday afternoon. There was a nice selection of meals that were available for... More

V's was the restaurant of choice by the groom for the rehearsal dinner. He loves the Italian Rum Cake! We chose the Number 2 dinner buffet that included Baked Chicken and Cannelloni Florentine, which was excellent. V's management worked with us to have extra space for the rehearsal. The staff was friendly and helpful but Service was a little slow... More

If you're looking for Italian food DO NOT go near V's!! Besides the food the decor is seriously dated. In fact, the entire place looks/feels dusty and rather dowdy much like the waitresses. Back to the food. Our waitress actually warned us about three dishes - can you believe this?? We ended up ordering a small pizza as a starter... More

While staying near Kaufman Stadium we searched for something relatively close and we're glad to find V's! Nice ambience, good service and menu options. Sunday night wine by the bottle was half price which meant a nice Chianti for $22.
