I took the family to V's for dinner and we were all very happy with our choices. It felt like a family dinner with a huge family. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere is charming, and the service was very friendly. Give it a try if are in the area.

We randomly just picked this place and so glad we did! The food is really really good! Each meal comes with a salad and rum cake for dessert and the cake was legit. The ambiance is very nice. Comfortable tables, dim lighting, amazing staff. I SO WISH I could remember our waitresses name because she was so great, but I... More

Good and friendly service, fantastic food, reasonable prizes considering the quality and quantity. I had Vitello Siciliano (veal cutlet in tomato sauce c/ shrooms and mozzarella and substituted veggies for spaghetti (18). He had eggplant parmigiana but stuck with... More

My husband and I visited for dinner on a Sunday evening. Very good food and service. Rum cake is included with your meal. Sunday night special is Fried Chicken. It looked tasty but we were after Italian and were not disappointed. It's labeled as the place that couples fell in love and the booths have plagues with couples listed. V's... More

My cousin lives in Independence and when our family was out visiting for a family reunion he took us to V's. It was not only a friendly and fun atmosphere, but the food was amazing!!!

There is a reason V's has been around so long in the same location, and continues to stand out even in a neighborhood that has changed a lot over the years, not especially for the better. But V's remains a reason to head out on Highway 40. Though the decor has probably changed very little since the day it opened,... More

This is always the best experience. V's Sunday brunch is fantastic. The eggs benedict, the pastas, and meat dishes are always well worth the cost. Fresh fruits, pasteries and the mimosas and poinsettias (champagne and cranberry juice) are my favorite. Staff is very attentive and polite. Great place, good food.

For those people who grew up visiting an Italian grandmother for Sunday dinner, this restaurant may bring back a flood of memories of that bygone time. The decor evens feels dated - and I intend that as a compliment - because in other restaurants the dusty rose leather bench seats would feel old, but here they feel nostalgic. The wall... More

Father's Day 2016 was great! Wife, Daughter, Son, Grandson, Sister-In-Law and husband, Niece and three Nephews! The buffet at V's was quick, plenty of variety (breakfast, lunch & brunch - turkey, ham, sausage, brat, scrambled eggs, eggs benedict, salad, fruit, sausage/gravy on biscuit, omelettes made to order, juice, mamosa, etc.) The staff was continually serving

This is always a great meal! We live nearby and have eaten here for years. Many choices (all good) and you will be treated to their family recipe rum cake for dessert.
