Long line on a Friday night, order and pray for a table. All they have is individual pizzas, a couple of salads and only 2 pastas, Lasagna and Alfredo. Very limited menu but it is a pizza joint. Impressively fast: Despite the long line, the ordering process was quick and yes we did find a place to sit after a short wait. From the moment you step in there is someone to greet you and help you with your selections, they delivered our food within minutes and checked on us several times throughout the meal. This will satisfy your pizza craving (if you like thin crust). I had the Lasagna and the only thing it was missing was sauce, I need more sauce, it was dry but good. Drown it in sauce and you hit a home run. The focaccia bread is the best I have had in a long time..... It is really hard for me to give this place more than 3 stars when you have such a limited menu, stand in line ordering, take a number and wait for a table and then get better than average fast food pizza. Great Location, Friendly service, Good Food, Very crowded and loud, not bad for a chain. I would go back.

Best stromboli ever! I've eaten at many places trying their strombolis and this had to be the best. Only thing that bothered me was one of the cooks came from the bathroom and only rinsed his hands and dried them off.

After a day of sightseeing there's no better way to end it than with a slow casual dining experience at a local pizzaria. While located mid-town, Il Vic's wood fired ovens surmount the obstacles encountered in finding a downtown parking space.

Service was fast and efficient and the quality and varieties of pizzas above that of national chains. The Molte Carne (very much meat) pizza I had included calamata olives (as opposed to cheaper black olives) and fresh basil. All the micro-brews offered were great but, if you're looking for a non-alcoholic beverage, try the brewed root beer (on tap) for a different taste sensation. The root beer lacked the sugary taste found in bottled or canned root beers which seemed to enhance the vanilla highlights.

This used to be one of our favorite pizza places, but recent visits have been disappointing. Pizzas are getting smaller, toppings are less, and flavor is lacking.

I was very impressed with the quality of ingredients. We went on a weekday at lunchtime and got the special which was personal pan pizza, salad and a drink for $10. It was delicious and satisfying. There is something for everyone here. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very friendly.
