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.

Me and my girlfriends went here for the 1st time and it was wonderful. The service was excellent and the food OHH MY was delicious. The owner came over and talked to us and let us know about the restaurant and also shared that his son was taking over. We went outside after dinner and took pictures and just had a great time. Greg even gave us a gift card as a token and guess what I went back without the girls for a take out. Give it a try and you'll leave a excellent review like I did. I'm on here again because I need to let my family taste this amazing food.
