“50 Years of Yummy!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I went to V's on a date the other night, I hadn't been there for years. The food is as good as it ever was and the service was top notch. A nice salad, Toasted Raviolis for an appitizer, Pasta with their famous red sauce and two huge meatballs, and then, Rum cake for desert.
Truely a meal fit for royalty! The decor might be a little out of date, but I'm over 50 now. It seemed real nice to me. This is their 50th anniversary!!! Specials all year, I'll be back for sure!

“Continually Good”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We have been to V's dozens of times and it is always good and the service is top notch. We have had most everything on the menu but ordered Prime Rib instead of an Italian dish and it was really delicious. We had the small cut which was thick and generous and a side of pasta with it. We started the evening with a Pomegranite Martini and ended it with V's famous Rum Cake that comes with every meal. Both were wonderful.

“Great Italian Food!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We went on a date night to V's and truly enjoyed it. We thought that our food was excellent and were surprised that you even got dessert with your meal. The decor was a bit outdated, but the service was great.

“Lasagna delicious!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you want some truly delicious lasagna, this is a great place to come. You get a lot though so you may want to split it with a friend. Service is friendly, the atmosphere, Midwestern Italian. Close to the stadiums so a perfect place to catch a tasty bite before watching a little baseball or football.

“Good food but service needs improvement”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

V's Italiano Ristorante is one of KC's better Italian restaurants. Good quality food at a fare price. Every time I've eaten hear the food is good but the service needs improvement!
