I ordered a pizza over the phone. The crust & toppings were great. The only problem was that it was lukewarm when it was delivered. They did apologize for being so slammed. My suggestion is that you pick up your pizza if possible, rather than wait for delivery

We wanted pizza, but not "chain" pizza. Took a chance and hit paydirt big time. Outstanding home-made pizza ready on time for pick-up. Well made to order and very tasty! Best pizza we;ve had in a long time.

Ordered the veggie pie and was very happy! Hot and tasty with a fresh crust. Picked it up and it was easy to reheat in the oven. Would definitely try it again and try different menu items. Friendly staff. Very busy so order early.

When we visit the inlaws in Williamsburg, Sal's is always visited. Sal's always accommodates our larger parties. You know you are at a good restaurant when you recognize the servers, i.e. little turnover . That being said, Song, or Sang the waitress is amazing and makes you feel like family. Because we're from Jersey, we appreciate good pizza. Sal's never... More

Sala's Meat Lovers is so good and sizes are filling . We ordered a large for three of us it was 10 slices , we could only eat 2 each nice size . The waitress was very friendly. The lemon Italian cake was also yummy. The owners also being Italian made it really nice to talk too.

Sals by Victor is a Williamsburg institution. You won't find better Italian food anywhere. Make sure that you try their homemade deserts. You won't be disappointed.

Sal's by Victor was a last minute decision for dinner. What a great surprise! Food and service were excellent. It is located conveniently on Richmond Street in the Food Lion and ABC shopping center. Parking is more than adequate. We are looking forward to our next trip in the Spring to enjoy another wonderful meal at Sal's.

Was there with a group and had about a 7 course meal that consisted of mozarella with grilled red pepper, facaccia, tortellini ala vodka, ravioli in pesto sauce, salmon with fresh vegetable medley and canolis. Everything was absolutely delicious! The staff was terrific! Great place -- highly recommend

We eat here when we arrive in Williamsburg because the food and service is excellent. My wife and I always come with friends to relax and have a good meal with a lot of fun. We've been coming here since 1988 and it's only gotten better over the years. Now I am craving the cheese Ravioli with a salad. Their... 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.
