I am originally from the area, but moved away 20 years ago. I wanted to visit Vs because I remember it from "the good old days". It is over 50 years old, same location, almost the same menu. The food was reliable - one standout is that they do make all their salad dressings. I find the thousand island to... More

We took advantage of a GroupOn and really enjoyed our visit. The meals were delicious and the intimacy afforded to us on Valentine's was very much appreciated. We will return.

We are blessed with great options for Italian food here in the metro but the roasted garlic appetizer, followed by a salad with the... More

It's been a while since I have eaten here. I am glad to say they still have the Tuesday pasta bar. The food is great and the people are very nice. I love the happy aromas in the air and the good food. It's a go for me.

We came to V's after reading good reviews. The restaurant is dated but the wait staff was very nice. The food was good but nothing really special for the price.

V's has a long-standing and well deserved reputation as a family restaurant. My husband and I have eaten there several times throughout the years. For our 25th Wedding Anniversary (that was 23 years ago), for a variety of reunions with friends, and other special occasions. Although WE never suggest V's ourselves, we will agree to go there when others make... More

The food is always delicious, but the Sunday brunch is a step above! Beef, eggs Benedict, mimosas, pasta bar. ... OMG!

V's food is consistently good. This "vintage" Italian restaurant is a friendly place with good food.
