Italian
A neighborhood staple for more than 33 years, Victor's has evolved into the perfect reflection of an Italian Trattoria. Though the quality of the food, thoughtfulness of the service, and the caliber of wines, beers, and cocktails offered may hint at a more upscale Ristorante, Victor's remains a cozy neighborhood spot, perfect for all occasions. Executive Chef George Sheffer's menu changes with the season and highlights local products when possible. Come and enjoy stuzzichini (snacks) at the bar with a pint from a local brewer or pair any of our more than 100 wines (over 1/3 of Italian varietals) on our wine list with Chef's Prezzo Fisso menu.

We went to Victor's for a celebration lunch. Our server was so kind and went beyond our expectations to help us enjoy our meal. The food was delicious. We've been looking for good Italian food, and we will be going back to Victor's. Next time, we are going for dinner.

Victor's has an excellent assortment of Italian dishes with very interesting starters and salads. Their Caesar salad with white anchovies is a little different and always good. Their pasta dishes are outstanding. They offered a rockfish dish that night that was excellent. They have a selection of premium wines that are great choices. While the tables don't leave a lot of room and the chairs are a little hard, we always enjoy our visits there.

We dined early (5:30)because we had an event beginning at 7. The pace of the meal was excellent, giving us plenty of time to eat two courses and get to the theatre. The food was outstanding. The only downside was that our waiter was what I’d call “snarky,” although perfectly competent.

The Service was great and the food was better. I ordered a pasta dish that was designed to be served with cold pasta and hot meat. When I ordered it my waitress made sure to warn me that the meal is designed that way so I could order something else in case I didn't want that.

We were not planning on getting dessert, but the snickerdoodle inspired creme brulee was too much to pass. And I'm glad we didn't. That was the best damn creme brulee I have ever had in my life.

10/10, would highly recommend. (Just be prepared to spend some money)

We are regular customers of Victors. The food is generally very good to excellent. Victor's has a full bar, so you can get just about any cocktail or brand you like. It has a good wine list with a good variety of house wines and premium wines by-the-glass. But we noted on our visit last week that the only oaked Chardonnay by-the-glass was the premium Paul Hobbs at $15, much too expensive for something which should be a basic, and honestly pretty expensive for anything in this area.

Our only concern at Victors is the tendency to book very large groups in a very small space. That generally means a very high noise level which can make it difficult for a small group to have a normal discussion.

Overall, last week we had really good food and outstanding service, which is generally very consistent.

This was our third visit to Victors and it is not what we had experienced the last two times. The wait was short, but the wait staff was obviously taxed, preparing for a large party. The food was inconsistent, one meal out of the 4 was prepared well, the others were tasteless and or cooked poorly.

Looking for a great place to have dinner before a show at The Pullo Center? Look no further! Victor’s was perfect. Great food and service! And only a few minutes away from the show. We are inside because it was cool outside but will definitely be back to sit outside on the patio.

We are very particular about risotto and they cooked it so good that Gordon Ramsey would have been proud. Great wine and beer list and they take out the guesswork by wine pairing selections for each entree. A definite must visit.

This was the last chance for Victor's, way to inconsistent. Service for Wednesday was very slow. They weren't overly busy but every thing was slow coming out, especially drinks from the bar. The quality of the food wasn't up to the prices charged either. The food was bland and several bones were left in the fish. Unfortunately this has seem to experience the last few times there too :(

We really like this restaurant and visit it fairly often. Two issues...it is very loud, making conversation somewhat difficult and detracting from the dining experience. And, would like a changing menu and/or more evening specials.

First visit based on reviews I read. Had a great night with some friends while in town playing golf. Shared some apps which were all good and we each had an entre. A couple bottles of nice Italian wine was all we needed to finish off a great meal. To top it off was a great band playing in the bar area which was a perfect volume in the dining room. Give it a try if you haven't.

As always, I enjoyed our visit to Victor's. The food is very good. Everything was prepared with care. The chicken I ordered was just right, not dry. The scallops and risotto my wife ordered was just perfect. Table service was good, quick and thoughtful - everything was just right. Only complaint might be in the menu items. Some items seems like they have been on the menu for a while now. Otherwise, one of the best in York.
