Italian Weekend Brunch Lunch Dinner Casual Dining $$

The ‘Cake Boss’ does more than bake—he cooks, too. And Buddy Valastro is showcasing Italian cuisine his way at Buddy V’s Ristorante. Located in the Grand Canal Shoppes, eat the ultimate comfort food served for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Grab a window seat for envious views of the Las Vegas Strip.

Chef Buddy ‘Cake Boss’ Valastro

Buddy Valastro pioneered the custom cake movement from his family bakery in New Jersey. Then he set his sights on Las Vegas with dreams of bringing his love of food to the masses. With so much culinary talent in his family, it was easy to create a menu to rival other Italian restaurants in Las Vegas.

Italian Food Made From the Heart

Many of the women in Buddy Valastro’s family are featured on the menu. From his wife’s crispy and tender Eggplant Parm to his mother-in-law's Shrimp Scampi to Grandma’s Meatballs and Nonna’s Lasagna, all are some of the most crave-worthy dishes in Las Vegas. The overwhelming favorite of Buddy Valastro’s is his mother’s Sunday Gravy. The red sauce cooks all day with meatballs, sausage, lamb, and pork. Served over rigatoni, one bite will have your eyes closed in Italian bliss from the rich flavor of the sauce. If you’ve worked up an appetite, The Boss XL Veal Parm Chop is calling your name. Oven-baked with provolone and mozzarella and served with spaghetti marinara, it's the best dinner in Las Vegas.

Desserts by the ‘Cake Boss’ Himself

A meal isn’t complete without dessert, especially when baking is part of the Valastro family business. At the restaurant’s bakery, you can indulge in an impressive collection of sweet treats. Cannoli? It wouldn’t be a true Italian restaurant without the classic cannoli. Enjoy those along with Traditional Tiramisu, Lisa’s Warm Nutella Cake, seasonal cheesecakes, and more.

The Best Buffet Brunch

In this unique, buffet-style brunch, menu highlights include a carving station with Roasted Maple Glazed Ham and Grilled Peppercorn-crusted NY Striploin. Signature brunch items include Mac n’ Cheese Carbonara, Grandma’s Meatballs, Sausage & Broccolini Orecchiette, Chicken Parm, and more. Classic breakfast options include a Sunday Frittata and Roasted Potato Hash, along with eggs and breakfast meats. New, for-the-table options include a variety of house-made omelets, Ciabatta French Toast and Lemon-Blueberry Pancakes.  The Kids Corner boasts kiddie culinary classics such as cheese pizza, chicken tenders, and mac & cheese. No brunch is complete without a variety of; the selection of timeless treats includes Raspberry-Lemon Meringue Bars, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cupcakes, Italian Donuts, cannoli, tiramisu, assorted Italian cookies, and more. 

Sweet and Savory Triumph

With the success of TLC’s “Cake Boss,” the opportunity to bring his first restaurant to Las Vegas in 2013 felt right. Partnering with veteran restaurateurs Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla, they knew where to go. The rich heritage of the menu and the culture of The Venetian Resort—it’s a match made in Italian heaven.

Show Bio

For Buddy Valastro, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour means a lot more than “making a cake.” As a fourth generation baker, it’s a constant source of pleasure, pride and creativity. Creating amazing cakes connects Buddy with the memory of his father Buddy Sr. and his extended Italian family history. His father’s recipes and Buddy’s innovative decorating have taken the business above and beyond his father’s wildest dreams. Valastro’s talent and passion for the family business, Carlo’s Bakery, has earned the straight-talking cake expert the moniker, and hit TLC show, Cake Boss.
