Bring the entire family to Buddy Valastro’s home-style Italian restaurant, best known from TLC’s Cake Boss.

Buddy Valastro has made his way from New Jersey to Las Vegas with a casual Italian restaurant based on his large family gatherings. Try favorites based on beloved recipes from his mom, grandmother, and aunts: big portions of Valastro Sunday gravy or Lisa’s Linguine and Clams with Lobster. Sit on the patio for envious views of the Las Vegas Strip.

Buddy Valastro, of TLC's Cake Boss, has brought his first restaurant to Las Vegas at The Venetian. Buddy V's Ristorante, a partnership with veteran restaurateurs Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla, is inspired by Valastro's family gatherings. The menu offers twists on Italian-American favorites, as well as Valastro family favorites like Sunday Gravy, Steak Pizzaiola and Linguine. The renowned baker's restaurant, of course, also serves an impressive dessert selection including Cannoli, Nutella Cake, and Valastro's famous Lobster Tail Pastry.


Sicilian Sunset Cocktail

Available December 1 - December 19

Inspired by a mulled cider, Buddy V's welcomes the season with a new cocktail. Vodka, pomegranate juice, seasonal fruits, berries, and spices offer a more refreshing take on the drink. A festive garnish? You bet. It's finished with a spiced cinnamon sugar rim and a sprig of rosemary. A portion of the proceeds for each cocktail will be donated to HELP of Southern Nevada. They’re a local charity that helps provide holiday toys for Las Vegas children in need.
