Nice Italian Restaurant Near Kaufmann Stadium

We chose this restaurant based on other reviews and we weren't disappointed. The decor and lighting added an intimacy making it a good date night choice. The food was good (we had lasagna, soup and sandwich) and the service excellent. The prices were reasonable, too.

This place is the best! The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is wonderful. Their salad dressing is so good. Everything I've had here has been excellent. They have a great dinner deal from 4-6pm and you get a whole meal for around $11.00 and this even includes a slice of rum cake. You can't find a better... More

We had been one other time about 2 years ago. This time was every bit as awesome as the first! We arrived early for our reservation, but got right in. We were tight on time and were concerned that we wouldn't make it to the airport. It was worth the risk and then some. The spaghetti with meatballs was amazing... More

Loved the atmosphere here, especially the lights on the ceiling! Our table was in a corner with large windows on each side displaying unique statues and plants which gave an exoctic feel. The food was good but can't say the same about the service- it was slow and often forgetful.

One of our favorite go to destinations for anything from a light afternoon snack at the bar or a delicious Sunday Champagne Brunch. Delicious Appetizers, Salads, and main courses from Chicken Parmigiana Pizza. Spaghetti, Lasagna, Cannelloni, if it is Italian, they have it. Then you can top your dinner off with a great dessert, there just isn't a better place... More

My wife and I have appreciated the food and service at V's for years, but a recent change in their menu prompted me to jot down this review. At V's, you will be greeted by your server promptly, your drinks will be delivered quickly and to order, followed by fresh Italian and pumpernickel bread with butter (if you don't like... More

Went for a business lunch and left sorely disappointed. The waitress was quite nice but overworked even though the restaurant was not packed. I opted for the special buffet but really nothing special about it. The meatballs and ravioli were cold and bland. The corned beef was disappointing as well. It is still an old standby for many loyal customers... More

Not a bad thing on the menu! Great wine! Great atmosphere! We enjoy the booths in the back for a more romantic evening. Their brunch is awesome as well.
