Had lunch here on Thursday afternoon. The place was fairly empty, but we still sat outside. Our pizza was delicious, served promptly even outside. If COVID and the blasting cold air conditioning weren't an issue, I would have like to sit and admire the interior...of this place. The bar area is really beautiful. They offer a long list of craft cocktails, this would be a great place for a happy hour outing. I'd come back for happy hour again sometime.More

My wife and I were fortunate enough to come to this place for dinner. Not only was the food delicious, the manager John and server Hannah, went above and beyond wishing my wife and I well on our 5th anniversary. Delicious food, savory beverages and...kind people. Thank you!!!More

I hit this place to grab a quick dinner and the sever recommended the wings. I tried the Cryin’ Hawaiian. They were amazing! The right amount of sweet and spicy.

It is an Italian style restaurant, but the pizzas are really bad. mine was burnt at the bottom and top, and the pesto sauce made the taste worse. Another problem is that you are really limited to menu items which are not enough for all...tastes. I do not recommend it at all.More

We had a veloce salad and pizza vegetariana. They were plentiful and delicious. Our server was attentive and prices reasonable. We walked there but it appears there is plenty of street parking. Overall, it was a delicious meal and will recommend this place!

We actually didn't have a drink, but stopped in after a concert for a light snack before retiring...small pizza (thumbs up). They have a nice, large bar with blenty of bartenders to take care of patrons. If I'm back in town, I'll visit again for...a drink.More

This is a great place to get Neopolitan pizza in downtown Gainesville. This is pretty authentic Italian pizza according to my daughter who has been to Italy several times. A true Neopolitan pizza is much more healthy than an American Pizza with it's thin crust...no sugar added etc. Therefore slices are not as filling as American pizza. Z had two Italian wood burning pizza ovens. The pizza crust is supposed to come out slightly burned on the back. Wait staff is knowledgeable and can answer any questions. Next to the dining room is the attractive Sidebar which it is a bar right inside the restaurant. Noise from the bar has never been an issue however. If you want authentic Italian pizza V pizza is the place to go. On street parking which is free if you can find a space there are also parking decks nearby in the heart of downtown Gainesville.More

Only had one thing but I would order it over and over. I know I am not spelling it right but the Pizza Margharita is the best I have ever had, Really fresh tomato, lots of cheese and basil. Crust done true Italian style.

The staff were absolutely wonderful, top quality people, and are the only reason we would return to “V” ... but we would only call in for coffee, *not* for food. If you need gluten-free or cauliflower crust, this is your spot. Sadly we did not...enjoy any of the food at V - except the red onions which decorated the wings. Did not enjoy the wings, nor the meatballs, and the tiramisu was really not my favorite. Perhaps we are spoiled after eating pizza in Italy, but we enjoy pizza in other US places! If we had known ahead of time that “pizza” at V’s was expensive flatbread with toppings (and either zero red sauce with lots of tasteless cheese or a bunch of sour red sauce and hardly any cheese) we would have gone to Publix and bought subs for a picnic in the car instead. We found V to be an expensive disappointment, so were confused because it has lots of great reviews from other people. Want to re-state that the staff were exceptionally nice at V’s, and if you have gluten or carb issues you may have a good meal here.More

Had been told by many that this place was great. Unfortunately my family didn't like it. The pizza dough seemed undercooked for our taste (I think it is supposed to be that way) and the highly rated wings here are gross! Not normal wings with...wing sauce, its like spicy chopped up veggies on really wet wings with out normal wing sauce. Others seem to really like it but we won't be back.More
