“Not Authentic Italian, Huge Portions of Grease Laden Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

This place is very popular. However, their food is not authentic Italian. It is a version of Italian food, but not in a good way. Their food is quite heavy, grease laden. It is popular because people think they are getting a 'deal' with the huge portions they take home. The day after, however, you will discover your leftovers caked in congealed grease/fat/butter.

The salads are dull - iceberg lettuce, factory shredded carrots. Soups generally are too salty; they use either canned soups or frozen veggies.

Atmosphere - too loud, too dark.

“What happened to this place?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

The food is great and the portions are enormous! That part hasn't changed. But...... The place is filthy!!!!! Decor is outdated, used to have table cloths on tables. The bathroom was disgusting! Our server wasn't very attentive. I doubt I'll go back.

“Basic Italian and Lots of It”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Dined at Victoria's for the first time. I had chicken parmigiana and my dinner guest had the pasta with Alfredo sauce. We both rated our meals a 6 out of 10. The food is decent and you get lots of it for a fair price. The service was also good. Some recommendations to the management would be:

1. The Italian vinaigrette dressing lacked flavor
2. Chicken parm should not be deep fried, rather the chicken should be tenderized and the pan fried.
3. Paint some murals on the outside of your building as the restaurant has no curb appeal.
4. The bread rolls looked like hamburger buns. Consider some quality Italian bread and/or focaccia.

“Yum....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have been going to Victoria's for years....and when people first told that you'll eat for days off of one portion, I didn't believe them. They weren't KIDDING. I would be able to eat LEFTOVERS for almost 3 days afterwards....

I did notice that their prices went up. I'm not sure when, but it must have been in the last year or so. Not a big jump, but still worth the price of what you get.
