Sal's by Victor guyonthego

Sal’s by Victor Italian Restaurant is a casual table service restaurant. Portions are generally large and the primary dishes are pizza and pasta. Sal’s has a large dining room and can draw big traffic on weekends, especially for dinner on Friday and Saturday night and in summer when tourists are in town.

Originally the restaurant was called Sal’s restaurant and named after the prior owner. It was acquired by chef and current owner Vittorio Minichiello (Victor) in 1990. He kept the original name but added his own, thus the “by Victor” addition. Sal’s is built for efficiency. It’s not elegant but it is adequate. The booths and tables have some wear but were sturdy. The Italian theme décor is unremarkable but adds some character. Tables are spaced sufficiently to afford some privacy but volume can still get loud when the restaurant is busy. Also, TV's play in the dining room.

The manicotti appetizer was filling but not very tasty; the cheese was too stringy and hard to chew. Dinner salads, which were included with the entrees, were fresh and decent sized but unflavorful. The waitress accommodated special requests, such as extra lemons for the salad and swapping garlic bread for a second salad. The garlic bread however was greasy and soggy. The salmon Victor dish was cooked well and had a pleasing taste. A ravioli dish with sweet tomatoes was served lukewarm. It was filling and was moderately appetizing. Except for cannoli, desserts here are made by a third party. The tiramisu was small, but rich and savory. Sal’s provides a generally acceptable dining experience. While some dishes were impressive, others were quite average. Service was attentive and pleasant. A minor negative was that some tables were left unclean for a long period of time after customers had left.
