Buddy V's Ristorante, the Italian-American eatery from Buddy "Cake Boss" Valastro, will open its doors to San Antonio on Monday, January 29, according to a press release.
Located at The Shops at La Cantera, Buddy V's will serve up twists on Italian-American classics as well as desserts that made Valastro famous with his TLC show.
The menu will include options for lunch and dinner, as well as a limited bakery menu. Like much of the Cake Boss
brand, dishes honor the Valastro family. Inspired by family recipes, options include Lisa V’s linguine and white clam sauce with white wine, garlic, extra virgin olive oil; Valastro Sunday gravy with meatballs, sausage, lamb, pork and a bowl of rigatoni; and Nona’s lasagna al forno.
Buddy V's will get a bit local, featuring Texas spirits, including Alamo Golden Ale, Witherspoons River Rum, 512 Tequila Silver, Dripping Springs Gin, and more. The drink menu will also include the restaurant's signature cocktails, like the Sicilian Tea (Deep Eddy sweet tea, lemon & cranberry vodka, fresh sweet & sour and club soda).
For those that just want their pick of Valastro's prized desserts, Buddy V's will offer up its version of Italian birthday cake, Lisa's warm nutella cake, cannoli and Buddy's lobster tail.
San Antonio is the third market to have a Buddy V's Ristorante, with locations in Las Vegas and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
