This restaurant was great! We all enjoyed it so much, we went twice during our vacation. The portions were large, the waiters/waitresses were very nice, professional. The food took an average time to arrive (neither time did my kids start whining where is the food -- so that is a good time). The kids got the pizza which looked great... More

Several pages of pasta,chicken,seafood,sandwiches and salads to pick from. We enjoyed our salads of fresh greens with several different olives which we enjoyed. We asked for the house vi egrets. Neither salad tasted like it was dressed-we... More

I've been eating Sal's pizza since 1973. Sal's is bigger and busier now but the pizza is still great and the beer cold! You can't visit Williamsburg and have pizza without going to Sal's. Don't be put off by the shopping center location - it's always been here and hopefully always will!

This is a great place for us to do a take out order while visiting Colonial Williamsburg. Their pizza is excellent. The service is exceptional and friendly! We have never dined in, but it is always crowded.

We arrived at 6 and were seated quickly. The fettuccine and calamari was delicious we had the sals pizza with the works. The crust was delicious and the toppings fresh. Great service and better food. Definitely a must try

Excellent salads and pastas. Appreciate gluten-free penne, but would like gluten-free spaghetti more (Ronzoni is best). Great service!

First night in Williamsburg to meet up with friends from CO and were looking for a good pizza. Sure glad we ended up here. Lovely décor, friendly, efficient staff and pizza was great. Our friends had a full dinner and said it was wonderful. Sure would like to go back to try a full dinner.

Sal's was recommended to us by a local. Our party of 6 was seated immediately without reservations even though the restaurant was very busy. The waiter, Antonio, was superb! The food was delicious. I had the seafood crepes which were wonderful!! The rest of the party had pizza, 1 gluten free, 1 Hawaiian and 1 meat lover... They said the... More

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.
