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.

Great Italian! Friendly, courteous service. This is real Italian food with all of the normal Italian dishes. Too bad we have to travel 40 miles to get there, but worth it!

Felt the prices were steep for the location on a older part of 40 highway in Independence. It was one of the worst lasagna we've ever had. If there was meat in the sauce, it was pulverized beyond recognition. There was no ricotta cheese (an essential ingredient of lasagna) and the noodles appeared to be the no-boil type. The salad...
