“Great Food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Thes people Gregg and Mary do such a great job running this restaurant from waiting on tables tending the bar or what ever needs to be done to help their employees and customers. The food is top notch. Someone told me to order a steak and I told them I went there for Italian food. Well weeks later I decided to have a steak and you know what it was top notch.

“I'm in favor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I went to V's two weeks ago while spending time with family in Independence. My aunt and I had the 1963 50th anniversary special, while my uncle had the prime rib. Salad was nice but unremarkable. Breads were good. The pastas were quite good, but we all agreed that the toasted ravioli appetizer was the high point of the meal

My uncle loved the prime rib.

The staff was exceptionally fun and friendly. I would go back on any excuse.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

The food is classic Italian food and it is good, maybe you could call it really good, just not excellent. I love the atmosphere, and it is romantic. Much better than an olive garden, and your bill will reflect it.

“Tyler's Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

V's has been a family favorite for years. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries here with great success! We started this celebration with pomegranate martinis and yummy calamari. Tyler turned 24 by ordering chicken lemonata with a side of spaghetti. My husband chose lasagna, and I had manicotti with meat sauce. Tyler had a salad with his meal while my husband and I had Italian sausage soup. Everyone rated our meals 5 stars! We finished with their famous Italian rum cake!
