I eat here regularly but had not tried the lunch buffet until yesterday. There was more variety than I anticipated, considering how small an area the buffet takes up. The lasagna should have been warmer but, aside from that, it was all good. I was especially pleased to see the toasted ravioli included.

After reading all of the reviews and eating there several times I think it's just a preference. I think this is a great place. If it is dated its a good time period. I go to eat not look at fru fru. The staff is on top of the game. The food is wonderful and comes quick. Now if you... More

This place was unbelievable. So disappointing. I won't spend much time with this review. Just want to say that overall the service was not bad. It was the food that was horrible! I honestly don't know how this place is still in business. My husband ordered a pasta dish and the sauce was runny like broth water or something. We... More

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
