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.

“So Good !”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

On our recent visit to Colonial Williamsburg we had two occasions to taste the wonderful food from Sal's. The pizza that we enjoyed in our condo with friends was exceptional. Later we dined in - the eggplant parmesan and accompanying salad was delicious. Excellent service from Kasia, our waitress. Highly recommend.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I think they make the best medium-crust pizza here in town. I've also enjoyed dining on their take-out meals (like lasagna & salad). Good place for a large group.

“Italian Food just average”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The baked ziti was just average, Not nearly as flavorful as Tony's in St Louis, MO. The location was hard to find. Service was good. Did like the wine selection, but not the prices

“Pizza was soggy in the middle”
Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

We got take out pizza and it was not cooked well. It was soggy in the middle. The ingredients were tasty; tomatoes, artichokes and broccoli but a soggy pizza is just not good. If we had been eating in I would have sent it back but we didn't have that option. I would not order take out pizza from Sal's again.
