Excellent Pizza!! Walked into the Restaurant and ordered 3 Large Pizzas.

The food here really was very good but a big part of the pleasure for us was the "real feel" Italian atmosphere. The TV was on an Italian station, the greeter and the front spoke Italian and most likely was very Italian, the waiter spoke Italian.......love that kind of authenticity. (The waiter wasn't all that friendly, which was hard on... More

I was really pleasantly surprised when we walked in. I was expecting the normal Pizza Parlor. But Sal's By Victor is a upscale restaurant and the food was delicious. The restaurant isn't so fancy that you really have to dress up to go there, but would be comfortable for a tourist be at ease there. The food was delicious and... More

We gave Sal's another try after both good and bad visits. This was a good one! Our server, Simon, was professional, courteous, and friendly. We ordered lasagne, spaghetti with white clam sauce, stuffed rigatoni, and a steak and cheese sub. Everyone enjoyed their meal! The bread served before the mean was warm and delicious. The salads were fresh and crisp... More

Our server was very kind, and the food was amazing. I had the chicken with angel hair and marinara and it was so good, and the bread was wondeful!

Thank Jane S

Sal’s by Victor is a family run restaurant specialized in both southern and northern Italian cuisine. We’ve been serving Williamsburg and the surrounding areas since 1974. The restaurant was originally founded by Salvatore (Sal) who named the restaurant after himself. In 1990 Victor acquired the business from Sal and decided to keep the name, while at the same time giving the “by Victor” touch.Chef Vittorio Minichiello (Victor) was raised on a farm in Mirabella Eclano, in the Avellino region of Italy. He studied food arts at the Culinary Institute of Summonte Italia and has worked in some of the finest eateries in Europe, including La Cheminee in Paris, Giardino da Bruno in Rimini and Partenio in Naples.Today, he is a member of the Italian Chef’s Association and brings his world-class expertise to Williamsburg.Our Most Famous Dish is “Cavatoni alla Capri” together with our famous “New York Style Pizza”. We have been voted as the Virginia Gazette’s “Best in Williamsburg” for Best Italian Restaurant since 1996.After the 2009 fire the restaurant remodeled and enlarged with hand chosen artwork from Italian artists, capturing the beauty of the Italian vistas and creating a small slice of the old country here in Williamsburg.Sal’s by Victor’s mission is to treat all our “customers” as our guests and to make sure they leave the restaurant with a smile on their faces and a full stomach. We take complaints very seriously and always demand that our staff provide the best experience possible for our guests. We firmly believe that there is no better advertisement than a positive experience conveyed via word of mouth.
