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

All of the staff is genuine and friendly. The food was great and you get a lot for your money. It feels like home, but also fancy!

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

I've lived in Independence for more than 3 years now and have heard about V's, but had never been there. Hubby and I decided to stop yesterday for lunch. WOW! What a neat dining experience! It was so romantic and classy in there! Lots of glass and brass decorations. Grape arbors hanging overhead. Very cool atmosphere! We liked listening to... More

Owned by a wonderful family that pays close attention to perfection not only in the quality of food but in their presentation & service.

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

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
