Fantastic food and service! I was planning my rehearsal dinner remotely and they were fabulous to work with! We had about 30 guests in attendance and everything went off without a hitch!

This place is great, awesome food. They are super busy, and it's because it's just that good. 2nd time in 3 years we stayed in Williamsburg passing through for vacation. I had to return to this place as I remembered the food being so good...More

On a recent trip to Williamsburg, my family and I stopped at this restaurant for dinner. We had previously eaten here two years prior, and decided to go back. The place itself is in a small shopping center and could be missed if not paying...More

Staying in a hotel without room service, we knew pizza would pretty much be our only delivery option. Sal's goes above and beyond. We could order online, and they delivered our (rather large) order directly to our room within an hour. Thinking we had double-tipped...More

Great Italian food at reasonable prices. Parking is awful, but it's worth the walk. I have been eating food from here over 30 years. Pizza is the best New York style pizza in town.

We visited this restaurant for dinner while vacationing in Williamsburg, based on the Trip Advisor reviews. As others have said, don't be deterred by the fact that it is located inside a shopping center. Ordinarily, that would have sent my husband in the opposite direction,...More

Sorry for the delay. Traveling. The story I got from a server was Sal's by Victor is the original Sal and the one I enjoyed. There's a divorce story somewhere there which resulted in another Sal's.

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.
