Since 1963...

Established by "V" (Vita) and Jay Totta in 1963 and still family-owned and operated, V's Italiano Ristorante has been an institution in Kansas City's dining scene for nearly 60 years. Over the decades, V's Italiano has expanded to our current location with an elegant dining room that accommodates 150 guests, as well as three private dining rooms for groups up to 135. 

Providing uncompromised, professional service in a beautiful, relaxed, old world environment makes us one of the top Italian restaurants in the Kansas City area. The restaurant's cuisine, overseen by the third generation of Totta's, is steeped in rich, family tradition. 

In addition to a wide variety of authentic Italian specialties, with fresh, high-quality ingredients, our menu features mouthwatering steaks, succulent poultry, fresh seafood and handmade pizza. V's Italiano has twice been named one of the "100 Best Brunch Restaurants in America" by OpenTable and also offers off-premise catering for groups of any size at the location of your choice.

I grew up eatting at V's. Whenever we came to see my grandparents we would come to V's. My childhood memories were of amazing food and a giant family, people always talking and visiting, super relaxed and just wonderful. As an adult we moved to the area and realized we were close to V's and I got so excited. I had all these amazing childhood memories and it does not dissapoint. THe food is just as wonderful, the people still know my grandparents and ask about them, they still talk and visit like youre in their kitchen and theyre family. We love the Totta's!!!
