Went there on Christmas eve and had a fantastic meal - I had the Tortelini ala panna, a friend had the victor's special and my other friend the Veal in lemon & butter sauce. Everyone was very happy with their meal. We ordered the canoli for dessert and all loved it. I understand the restaurant is in a temporary location, so currently space is a little tight - three adults were snug in a booth. But the food was outstanding and worth the squeeze. Great service too. I plan on going back tomorrow night! - really.

Pros: Incredible meal

Cons: A little tight on space

Authentic Italian cuisine at a great price! I absolutely love it. Their service has been great even when they are filled to capacity!

Only downfall is the entry way and cash register area, are too crowded on busy nights!

I was originally born and raised in Williamsburg and can tell you that EVERY time I come back to visit I always go to Sal's by Victor. It is a community staple. I love the menu and the many choices. I tried the stuffed rigatoni last night and it was wonderful. The atmosphere would certainly not be considered romantic, but is a family atmosphere b/c it is owned by a family man. Often you can see Victor roaming about the restaurant speaking to the patrons. Don't get me wrong, I've had a couple times in my 29 years where I've wondered whom was in the kitchen, however 9 times out of 10 I walk out fat and happy :) Sun is by far the best server there. She is funny, quick, and always on the ball! I don't write reviews often, however I'd hate for someone to miss out on this place b/c of one bad experience. I've met many who drive into town just for Sal's.......

Pros: Great food, great server Sun, great for large groups

Cons: Fri/Sat can be really crowded and sometimes there are large buses of people

I was taken to this restaurant by my parents after they received an ad for it in their mail. I've lived near it for a while, but never tried it. I'd heard good things about it. Unfortunately, these good things were wrong.

The ambiance was wretched -- we were seated in the back when there were plenty of seats up front, and the seating was cramped. Our waiter was slow and forgetful, and they had only one dessert item available, but brought us the menu anyway.

My main reason for even stopping to write a review, though, is that I was made very, very ill (I am apparently not allowed to specify what I am ill with by an 'inappropriate word' filter) by my dinner there. I ordered the four-cheese tortelloni, which tasted odd to begin with, and have been ill since last night. Please do not go here ... and do not take your children! I don't know if this is true of all their food, but do you really want to play Russian roulette with your child's health?

I ordered a large pizza & an order of buffalo wings for delivery. I live less than 10 min away. To begin w/ I was told it would take an hour. Well, OK, I'm too lazy to go get it, so I'll deal w/ the long wait.

However, an HOUR & a HALF later, I called to find out where my order was. Come to find out, it was not even in route yet. In fact, it wouldn't be delivered for at LEAST another 45 min. HELLO, I live less than 10 min away!! I was offered a 20% discount, which wasn't good enough. After discussing the situation further I was offered a 50% discount, however it was contingent on MY GOING TO PICK THE ORDER UP!!! I agreed to do so, on ONE condition.... my pizza & wings were remade. As there was no way after 1 1/2 hrs. that I was going to go pick up the cold order of food. They agreed, and we picked it up. Only to find that the pizza was remade, but NOT THE WINGS - STONE COLD! Can we say samonella poisoning???!!! I called to speak w/ a manager who said that my NEXT order of wings would be free. HELLO... WHAT NEXT ORDER???!!!! Who said I was ordering again after that kind of service... NOT! She finally agreed to refund my order of wings, however did not offer to comp the entire check for the hassle. Might I add, this was a full 2 HOURS later!!!

Now in fairness, I will say the pizza was great. I'm from NY and finding good pizza is difficult, but this is definitely great pizza for the area. However, the wings are advertised as Buffalo wings.... think again!! Everyone down here seems to think Buffalo wings are breaded, NOT. Buffalo wings are simply deep fried & mixed w/ Red Hot & Butter. NOT BREADED!!! That's a southern wing, not a Buffalo wing!

This is the THIRD time I've tried to order from here w/i a 6-mth span. I gotta say the food has great flavor, but the delivery service IS TERRIBLE!!!! In addition, SERVICE LEAVES LOTS OF ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT!!!! My order should have been free after that hassle!

Sal's is beyond the best italian food. When you walk in the door you automatically feel like you're at home. Victor who owns the place will come around and talk to you. He is super nice! They have a fine selections of pastas, subs, pizza and they even deliver free in Williamsburg.
