My husband and I went back to V's, to celebrate his birthday. We have been several times since moving to Independence, and this night did not disappoint! We went for dinner. Our waiter was very good. The lasagna and spaghetti with meatballs were great too! The atmosphere is old world romantic!

Wow. I am so glad I came across this restaurant on Trip Advisor while traveling through KC. I was impressed. Really, really good food severed by expert wait staff in an establishment with an pleasing, comfortable decor. My table ordered Focaccia Bread and a garden salad with V's special house dressing from the menu. Both were excellent. The dressing is... More

V's Italiano Ristorante is outstanding. It’s one of the best Italian restaurants we have tried. We arrived in time for the lunch buffet. There were so many wonderful choices and we wanted to try them all. Our waitress was cheerful and very helpful. We tried a little of everything. I especially loved the lasagna and spaghetti. Meat balls were superb.... More

We used V's to cater our wedding reception in May 2014 and it could not have been more perfect! My wife and I decided to do food stations instead of a typical buffet or sit down dinner. Greg Hunsucker at V's was more than able and willing to set up exactly how we wanted. The planning process was extremely easy,... More

Thank you for your kind words about our catering services. It takes a lot of trust to plan an event with a caterer that you can't meet with on a face-to-face basis. We're glad that you and your guests found our catering services worthy of a 5-Star review. Thanks again! More

V's is great, the family are top-notch. I have been doing since I met my husband (1990) and V goes to Ma's church across the street and up. They consistently make me happy!!!!!

Your positive review of our restaurant pleases us deeply. In much the same way that general citizens want guests to their home for dinner to totally enjoy themselves, this is also the way we approach our business. We desire that everyone completely enjoy themselves every day and night of the year when they visit. Thank you for the kind remarks. More

We had an extended family dinner here. There were 6 adults and two children, a 4 year old and a 1 1/2 year old. The waiter Sam was super accommodating.
