Description: 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.

We went to Sal’s last week while on vacation in Williamsburg. The food was very good. The menu selection made it difficult to figure out what to eat as it was very extensive. My son and I had a pasta dish, while my wife and other son had pizza. Everything was excellent. The restaurant was clean; staff was friendly and well decorated. I wish I had gone here earlier in the week as I would have gone back a few times. Great place.

Sal's is a great place for any kind of Italian food you are looking for... I love the fresh taste of the sauce and the ingredients used in every meal are fresh and full of flavor. The restaurant is always busy and the wait staff is some times stressed but the food that comes out from the kitchen is worth it for sure! The prices are good for the quality you get. This is my first choice Italian restaurant in Williamsburg!

My family and I love this restaurant! If you are a local like we are or planning a trip to Williamsburg, VA dining at Sal's by Victor is a must. The food is great and the marinara sauce is mouth watering. We want to give a personal thanks to one of the workers for going the extra mile to make the customer happy. Thanks Craig! The pizza was delicious!!!

We ordered pizza and calzone. The pizza was ok, light on pizza sauce. The calzone was huge but overcooked and, mostly bread. We saw many other patrons getting subs.
