We're visiting from NY. Foodies, so we know good pizza. We got a pie, and it was pretty good. Obviously not NY pizza, but good enough to satisfy a pizza craving down south! Great service- friendly atmosphere.

Living downtown, this is our go-to. We love Vics and the food! They have a chicken picatta and a shrimp gnocchi dish that will literally blow your your socks off! The pizza is pizza... their strength is in their survive and entrees.

This restaurant in City market is old fashioned genuine NY style good Italian food. I had Linquine with Shrimp Fra Diavolo & it was like Mom used to make. My spouse had spaghetti & meatballs & the meatballs were huge. Both dishes hit the spot
