Went in hungry for pizza, and we got ours perfectly tweaked just for us! I don't eat pork, so my half of the supreme had beef only and my husband's had everything loaded on it! Was delicious, reasonably priced, and such a SWEET accommodating server! Saw lots of families eating together! Background music was Italian, which was great. Had a... More

We were exhausted from our day-long visit to Colonial Williamsburg, so we opted to have pizza delivered from Sal's. It was delivered really fast, and our pizzas were delicious. Hint: Look for the local pizza places instead of just defaulting to the chains.

Don't let the location of this restaurant keep you away. It's located in the corner of a strip mall and doesn't look all that great from the outside. Open the door and you're in a cozy but large restaurant. The food was wonderful but it did take a while to receive our food. There was a child's party being held... More

To start off you get a basket of their fresh bread to dip in the olive oils on the table. My wife seldom eats the bread but had no reservations in dipping their. We were in the mood for spaghetti and meatballs and it was really good. The spaghetti was cooked perfectly and the meatballs we're tasty. The dessert case... More

Excellent. We had Chicken Marsala and a cheesesteak sub sandwich. Both very good. Bread was hot and fresh. Server and service was great.

Great Italian food. They give large portions so come with an appetite. Service was excellent. It ous in the corner of a shopping center so can be easily overlooked but well worth finding it.

Ordered 13 pizzas and garlic bread for a group of 28. Because we were from out of town, I had no idea how big each slice of pizza would be for the price I was paying. THE SLICES OF PIZZA ARE BIG. After my teenage group of students were finished eating we had 6 pizzas left. Sal's worked well with... More

My husband and I visited on Friday night and it was full. It appears Sals by Victor is very popular with the locals and travelers. There were tables full of couples, families and several celebrations taking place. The wait was less than five minutes and we were promptly seated. Even though it was very busy and crowded it did not... More

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.
