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.

Ordered delivery pizza from our hotel on Richmond Rd. The timing of delivery was perfect! But the pizza itself was just average. The ingredients, especially the the sauce, seemed lower-quality. BUT if you're hungry and want delivery, this will do in a pinch.

We got into Williamsburg late on a Saturday evening and needed to go shopping for groceries for the week. We called for delivery from the store and told them what time we wanted the pizza delivered. They were right on time, arriving just as we got back to our hotel! The pizza was still hot. It was okay, not the best I've ever had, but not the worst either. It hit the spot after a long day.

Sal's has done a wonderful job of rebuilding after the terrible fire several years ago. The restaurant is large, with plenty of seating and pretty décor. There is also a separate pick-up area that is very convenient. Everything is of good quality, especially the lobster ravioli, and there are several "heart healthy" choices, including several choices of chicken. The pasta choices are many, including meatballs, sausage, and rigatoni with broccoli. The staff is very attentive and friendly. It's a nice casual and friendly place to go for a good meal. Save room for desert because they have some great Italian choices, including tiramisu and Limoncello. The Godiva chocolate cheesecake is amazing. There is also a limited but good selection of gluten-free dinners, including penne pasta and a small pizza.
