We eat at V’s regularly and have for years, so it’s about time I wrote a review. We’ve been eating at V’s since we moved to the Kansas City area from the Chicago area in 1973. We grew up with great Italian restaurants in our area and searched for similar ones in Kansas City. Fortunately, we found V’s Italiano!
V’s is a family owned and operated restaurant and the atmosphere and service reflect that. You’re treated like family there and the restaurant has a warm casual feel in the décor. The menu is extensive so it might pay to check it out on line in advance unless you want to spend time drooling over the possible selections while you ponder which one(s) to order. I’ve probably had everything on the menu over the years and can truly say that I’ve never had a bad meal or a dish that I didn’t enjoy. For appetizers, I have a hard time staying away from the escargot served swimming in garlic butter and baked covered with a puff pastry. (I never said it was “low-cal.”) The house salad comes with a sweet Italian dressing to which I add blue cheese crumbles and is included with nearly every meal. I’m not sure I could pick a favorite entrée’, but I do like the seafood cannelloni, the linguine with clams, and the angel hair pasta with either the Italian sausage or the seafood. If you can’t decide, try the filet & pasta combo! The house special rum cake dessert is also included with nearly every entrée’. If you want a special treat, try their Sunday Brunch! You’ll find everything from eggs Benedict to carved roast baron of beef to cooked to order pasta dishes. Oh, yeah, champagne, orange juice, and mimosas are included with Brunch!
They have a full bar and serve a great martini (add the blue cheese stuffed olives for a little extra zing). Drinks are reasonably priced and if you like, you can wait for your table in the bar or even eat there if you chose.
They have private dining rooms of several sizes and when we’ve used them, the services and food has been excellent.
Al in all, I’d recommend V’s to anyone that enjoys good authentic Italian dishes and great friendly service. You’ll find me there often!
