Great food & ambiance

Husband and I had the manicotti, which was delicious. Our son had spaghetti & meatballs. No complaints from him either. The service was prompt & very good as well.

We took my parents there for lunch. The restaurant was not at all busy. They ordered the prime rib special I had the baked lasagna. The prime rib was truly the fattiest piece of meat I've ever seem. The lasagna was ok, I've had better. For what the portions you got, the prices were very high. on the upside our... More

The food was simply tasteless. Don't waste your money. Also, the lack of vehicles in the parking lot spoke volumes.

Asked hotel clerk to recommend local good Italian restaurant. V's was her suggestion. Definitely local. Outside not real impressive, inside, old time wooden and dark. (I liked it). I ate at the bar with a few locals and had a great time. Bartender was good, made a great Manhattan, was menu knowledgeable and was nice guy. If you stay away... More

It's crowded due to the age of the restaurant--been in KC for a long time so it's a traditional Italian restaurant. The sauce doesn't have a lot of extra stuff like xantham gum or other additives--just old fashioned pure home-made sauce...tends to be on the sweet side but good. Good value for the money.

We had brunch here on Father's Day and really enjoyed the offerings! I had a poinsettia to drink and ate mostly breakfast fare. The Eggs Benedict and biscuits and gravy were very good. My husband had breakfast fare and OJ, but some of his Italian sausage was red instead of cooked through. I tried a little Italian food that was... More

Had a family Brunch here, food was very good, they could use a little more room, the day we were there it was very busy and not much room between tables or the food line. But the experience was great.

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.
