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.

Wonderful dinners! The food is great and the owners and staff are so sweet! We live in Omaha and make it a point to come to Independence every year for our anniversary so we can enjoy an intimate dinner at this long-time favorite! Cannot wait to see all of the renovations being done when we come down again!
