We got there early for the early bird specials. Really helps when you’re on a fixed income. One of us had the chicken Parm and it was perfect. I had the angel hair with Pesto. Cooked to perfection. Also the marinara sauce was fantastic.

IF you like thin crust pizza, rich red sauce, and wonderfully cook pasta, then go here. However, if you are seeking classic Italian plates, it's not so good. The service is ok, the atmosphere is something to be desired, but the food is pretty good.

Vic’s is a truly local family restaurant. In the same family since 1947 and probably more popular than ever. It has a ‘big diner’ feel in style and a nostalgic 1960-1970s vibe without being ‘themed’ as such. The menu is authentically Italian-American and the cocktails...More
