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

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.

My wife and I have loved this place since we moved to the metro area in 1996! Momma V stopped by our table to say hello what a gracious lady doing what she loves to do! 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.
