The Italian joint will open at 11 a.m. every day and will close at 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and at 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

The Shops at La Cantera posted a photo of the Buddy V's Ristorante storefront back in September, stirring excitement among San Antonio's foodies.

Many wondered whether the restaurant would have a bakery like Valastro's shop in Sin City.  A spokesperson for the bakery said Valastro is constructing a Buddy V's and Carlo's Bakery at La Cantera that will be separate from the Italian restaurant. The bakery will open at a later date.

Valastro is best known for his TV show, "Cake Boss," which airs on TLC. The show is filmed at Valastro's family-owned bakery, Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey.
