Night Out at Victor’s Italian Cuisine

Happy Monday friends. Thrifty Haute Mom is back. On a whim I decided to go out with my in laws and husbands cousins for dinner and I was so glad I did. I headed out to the soft opening of Victor’s Italian Cuisine. I’ve never been to a grand or soft opening of anything. I decided to add a section to THM per my about page. Adding some fresh local places that are great for mama’s that are stylish and within the a great price. This place has been around for a while now but they just moved and revamped. They just relocated down the street to 1639 Broadway Saugus, MA 01906 from their original location. Their new location is so spacious and great for dining or lounging.

They have included more bar and cook staff which is always great. With the new revamp, its great for a moms night out or even a blogger dinner.

When waiting for service myself and my mother in law were able to have a few words with the owner. I advised him I was a blogger and was interested in doing a review since I like to feature more small businesses and guides for myself and my audience. When speaking with him he had stated ” It’s so good to hear from someone one like you. People love coming to our restaurant but never post about it.” I was kind of astonished. No matter what type blogger you are you know even if you’re a stay a home mom, work at home mom, a mom who works etc a blog is a full time job no matter what. In between social media between, posting content, pictures etc, scheduling what you need you always know you need to keep up with things. With this stage of things people are always online. You would just figure negative or positive they would post about it.

Towards your left when you first walk in, they have a lounge which you can sit and sip. There were tons of people having drinks while they waited for their tables too.

While I waited I had a chocolate martini.

The bar staff were so friendly and this drink tasted liked a spiked chocolate milk. After being seated things ran pretty quick. They have tons of food options available which is always great.


The atmosphere was great for a hip night out or a low key family night. The noise level was also great. It was busy but you can’t expect anything less from a new establishment. As a parent, if I had to bring my three year old to a future visit it would work perfectly. I would just wait a while for things to settle a bit beforehand. It’s definitely neutral based.  If your North of Boston or planning a trip to the Boston area this is a great place to check out.

    OMG Chocolate martini sounds amazing!
    I find it so interesting how many people don’t review places they eat. Or if they do it’s only when they go to complain, which is so sad. That’s awesome you got to chat with the owner!

    That martini just put me over the top. I love those and I am off sugar, so now I am going to have to figure out a way to make one that is sugar free. Yum.

    I am drooling over that martini list! Yum. =) It’s awesome that you were able to have a night out on the town, and that restaurant looks fabulous.

    This looks wonderful! My husband grew up watching his Italian grandfather cook so he’s extremely picky about Italian restaurants. We’d love to visit!

    I love pasta. I guess that being Italian does that to you lol. My husband and I like spending our evenings at the table and enjoy our meals

    YUM! Oh my gosh the food looks so good, but especially that chocolate martini!

  27. March 30, 2017 / 7:38 PM

    Italian is definitely my favorite meal to get out – always plenty of leftovers! That chocolate martini looks delicious too!

  28. March 30, 2017 / 11:29 PM

    Looks like a great place to visit if you’re in that area! Also, isn’t it just so nice to have a night out without the kids!?! Don’t get me wrong. I love my kiddos, but that time out only worrying about what you are going to eat and having conversations brings so much balance. So glad you got that time!

  29. March 31, 2017 / 9:07 PM

    We love Italian food, and the dishes here look absolutely amazing! The restaurant itself looks beautiful as well!

    Chocolate Martini? That would be the perfect drink for me, I’m sure it was delicious.
