For over 50 years V’s Italian Ristorante has been a favorite place for our family and friends to go in Kansas City. Birthday’s, anniversaries and any special occasion are made even more special when we celebrate there. V’s is located on old 40 Hwy in Independence. The restaurant sits back off the road and is a bit of a challenge... More

I have been going to V's for many years. Just moved back to Kansas City area after 29 years away. This led us to go back to V's. It was just as remembered. Run by the same family. They start with an outstanding sauce. Their own salad dressing. What they make is all comfortable Italian fare. Always excellent. We like... More

V's is a wonderful restaurant for a great, traditional, Italian lunch or dinner. Just as it's been a long standing tradition in KC, it is also just as much of a tradition for us as well. We keep coming back because the salads are fresh, and I like the Italian dressing. Everything on the menu from prime rib to lasagna... More

I've been going to V's for as long as I can remember. We've done everything from romantic dinners, to outings with a large group of friends, to swim banquets, to high school reunions and V's never fails to deliver. They serve classic Italian dishes that were good 30 years ago and are still delicious today. The wait staff has always... More

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
