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.

Good Italian food in a restaurant with a friendly ambience. Filled up my son who needed filling up! Service good and value for money.

This was a pleasant surprise! Upon visiting Williamsburg for the first time, we were not overly impressed with the eateries in the downtown area....most were overly rated and quite costly for what you got. Sal's was a great find. This was a pleasant evening filled with delicious Italian food... without emptying our pocket book!

Sals by Victor is a great local place that we enjoy each time we visit. The pizza is top notch! The chicken and pasta dishes are great too.
Great value and the place is just a fun and relaxing family place to hang out.
We highly recommend it
And they do deliver locally.

Our first visit to this restaurant. Despite some large groups at the restaurant, we were pleased with the quick service and tasty food.

This Italian restaurant was above average and a terrific value. we had spaghetti with meat balls, baked ziti and grilled chicken Alfredo with whole wheat pasta. I am watching my carbs and general do not eat regular pasta but look for whole wheat. Sal's also had gluten free pasta. We had a couple of adult beverages and the overall experience was enhanced by the accordion player that worked his way around the restaurant. If you are in the area you should go here.
