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.

We have been looking for really good Italian food since moving to KC. So far, it's been so-so. I'm used to Italian from"The Hill" in STL, so I'm not easily pleased. Today came closer than any other Italian restaurant we've tried in KC. The red meat sauce wasn't soupy and thin (as many are here), but thicker and had a... More

Thanks for the favorable comparison to those legendary restaurants on 'The Hill' in STL. We look forward to serving some of our delicious Homemade Italian Dressing and wonderful Tomato Sauce to your family again in the near future. Also, a tip: we will gladly warm your bread for you. Just ask your server on your next visit. More

We've had worse. Good service staff....except the young lady letting us know how bad her life is...while using the "f" word. We told our waitress and she informed the manager and we didn't see that girl again. Not a very appetizing conversation. The atmosphere was old school and dark. The beer was cold and the pasta was fair. All in... More

Have lived here in Independence for 3 yrs and decided to finally try V's this week. It was everything I expected from a family owned Italian restaurant! Old world charm, glass & brass Deco's, grape arbors on ceiling, cloth napkins, sappy Italian love songs (I love Dean Martin music!) Everything looked very clean and organized. The wait staff was very... More
