When I think Buddy V I have visions of magical treats and delightful cakes. Confections that would make you faint, but savory Italian delights? That’s what you’ll find at his family Italian Restaurant along with Buddy’s treats.
We arrived at the buffet right when it opened at 10:30am. The restaurant is a beautiful tribute to Italian cooking and baking. The Buffet is set up in five stations around the restaurant.
The Antipasto station had a mouth watering array of cold Italian treats. A salami board artfully arranged with cheeses, salads, muffins, breads and iced peel and eat shrimp.
The Carvery steaming with maple glazed ham, spicy Italian sausage, smoked apple wood slab bacon and chicken apple sausage.
The Sweets table over flowing with fruits, Cannolis, brownies, Zonuts, bread pudding and assorted candies.
The Chef’s Corner had creamy Mac and Cheese Carbonara, Panettone French Toast, Roasted Vegetable Frittata, and Sunday style eggs.
The Kids Corner offered Chicken Fingers, meatballs, Chicken Parmesan , Vegetable Crudités, croissants and Pain au Chocolate.
I tried a little of everything I could. I am allergic to eggs so that precluded me from trying a few dishes but my husband ate my fair share of those items. Everything was delicious. What I love about buffets is that you can try all of the chef’s signature dishes. If I had gone to the restaurant during regular dining hours I could try one or two dishes (I make my husband share), but with the buffet I can try them all.
Along with the buffet you can order bottomless libation and you can switch up your drink every time you order. We tried all the flavors of Mimosas, there is a Bloody Mary bar to create your own sensations. I highly recommend this add on and encourage you to try all the libations.
Buddy V’s is reasonably priced for their brunch offering. Adults $39.95, children under ten $14.95 and the Bottomless Libations are $16.95. All prices exclude tax, so don’t forget to factor that in.
Buddy V’s is located in the Venetian Shops on the Strip.
