We go to Victorias each trip we make to the Mayo. Very good Italian food, friendly wait staff, unpretentious, fair prices and decent ambiance. They offer weekly specials and have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. It should be definitely on your list as a go to when you are at the Mayo.

In the Mayo Clinic and Hotel area of downtown is this wonderful Italian restaurant with an incredible menu with so many choices of great food. I have never been disappointed.

The wait staff is very attentive without being intrusive. I had a shrimp/scallop pasta meal, 4 shrimp and three scallops with lots of tough chewy tiny shrimp. The sauce had little flavor, very bland. Hubby had a veal dish, plenty of meat, but again very bland. The rolls with the dinner were the bright spot, fresh, crispy on the outside... More

A great unique restaurant with plenty of classic Italian dishes and great salads. My favorite is the chicken BLT salad. Like all restaurants in Rochester, they can become packed with patrons around 7 p.m. with long waits. So call ahead to find the best time to arrive.

The convenience to the Mayo Clinic is the number 1 attribute of this restaurant. The Italian food was better than standard American Italian food and the prices were commensurate with the food. However, our waitress pushed us out the minute we finished eating despite the fact that many tables were available. We came to the restaurant to enjoy the food... More

We happened to walk to Victoria's via the subway under the Mayo and nearby buildings to partake of an early supper thus still made our 6:30 PM shuttle back to the Courtyard. I had the Pork Marsala which was fabulous; it had a tangy gravy over the pork, noodles, and the large abundant mushrooms. It reminded me of Sour-Brauten Schnitzel... More

We dined with friends there at about 17:00 on 10 October. Try to dine early as the place fills up fast for the evening meal. The menu is extensive so give yourself time to read all of the choices. The decision is a bit tough as there are many tempting dishes to try. The entrees are big enough to split... More

We had a nice booth by the window, although we moved there after the hostess seated us at a smaller both across the aisle. The woman in the booth next to us said they had done the same thing. So if the window booth looks open, snag it, as they appear to leave it for "special" people. The menu is... More

This Italian restaurant has everything you could ever want in a home-owned atmosphere. The menu is large and divided up by meat or region of the dish! The portion size is equally as large! Both meals that we ordered could have been split easily into two. I got the eggplant parmesan and I didn't even touch the noodles from fullness.... More
