We started with the wedge
We started with the wedge salad and duck salad, both were very tasty. Then we each had the salmon, which was exceptional. The servers and waitress were very attentive. Will be back soon.

Don't dress like a slob if you plan on eating here. Classy dining with a relaxing atmosphere. Food was delicious and the wait staff was outstanding. Lots of specials to choose from. Top notch wine service as well. Although, I wish he had a white cloth over his forearm when he presented it. Always a nice presentation thing. Overall, I would definitely take a girl back there on a date. The piano player in the bar area was a nice touch as well.

Beautiful Saturday afternoon
We went for the special cooking class lunch that a friend recommended. She knows we love good food and we are so happy we did.
Besides the gorgeous weather, the entire staff of this restaurant made everything perfect. We felt like we were on vacation.
Scallops were the best and had so much fun, missed much of the demonstration, but we have our recipes and homemade biscotti that were given to us as we departed made by the asst. to the chef who is also a pastry chef. Shared those at a dinner party that night. We will be back to dine on the patio and I heard they have a piano lounge. So much to see and eat!

I will be back with my best clients
My kids and I took my wife and mom here for Mother's Day. The service was fabulous five star. We were there at 11:30 am. There was no rushing us through. We were seated exactly on time. The food was five star ( I have been in over 1000 restaurants as my career dictates). Parking is easy down below ( just do not bring a high SUV...won't fit!). Although I live in East County, I will make the trip. Wanna try HAPPY HOUR too!

We have enjoyed several fine meals here since they opened the Coronado location. Our last visit was a celebration with our adult daughter and we could not have asked for a nicer evening. Superlative, cordial service and wonderful meals all around. In sum, a most enjoyable night out.

One block from the beach and
One block from the beach and 1 block from the Del so expect both tables of energetic friends and quiet tables on a date night. Dress causual or formal and you'll fit in fine.

A must if you're in Coronado
We had been staying at the Hotel del Coronado and wanted to try a restaurant not affiliated with the hotel for a change of pace. Based on recommendations I saw here and in Trip Advisor, I decided to give it a try. The food was outstanding. I had veal marsala, my husband had a pasta with butternut squash and our son had fettucine alfred. All were very tasty!!! Our servers were friendly and attentive. It was much louder than I had expected but everyone was having a good time!!! I highly recommend this restaurant.

My Favorite Eatery
Vigilucci's has been a favorite restaurant for over three years. The food is good, the staff always makes me feel welcome, the entertainment in the bar is out of this world.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Italian restaurant in the heart of Coronado with excellent service, a vibrant staff and great wine and food selections!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoughly enjoyed our dining experience at this restaurante. As a first time dinner I would highly recommend this dinner to my friends.

Best Pet Friendly Restaurant
We had a wonderful meal here. The staff was excellent and very attentive. We Los had a young dog with us and the waiter made sure she had water and also gave her some affection. It also helped that our AustraliannLabradoodle behaved well.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed by the whole family, excellent service, exceptional food, nice setting, can't wait to visit Coronado to go back again!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Impressive food and service. The pasta is so fresh and tasty! The Vodka sauce is outrageously good.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
An amazing restaurant!
Vigilucci is by far the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to. The food is at a good portion, seafood are fresh, extensive wine list and amazing attentive waiters. I went there with 8 other girls for a celebration and this restaurant definitely made it memorable for all of us. We love everything about it, oh and not to mention, a live piano playing in the background. Can not top this!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great summer night!
The service was perfect, not intrusive but helpful and available. The food was delicious, the cioppino is always great and my partner got one of the chef's specials. I wish you could see the ocean from the patio but the patio was still lovely. They had a musician playing live music at just the right volume. Will definitley be back!

Perfect Ending to a Great Vacation
My wife and I were wrapping up a week-long vacation in the San Diego area with our two children. We were in much need of a nice romantic evening and everyone at Vigilucci's went above and beyond to make that happen. From the atmosphere at a nice table outside by a fireplace, to the wine, dinner and dessert, the evening was perfect. THANK YOU!!!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A fabulous dining experience
The combination of food and service was absolutely fabulous. Our server was attentive and ensured that our dining experience was one of the best ever. We had the artichoke hearts appetizer and halibut entree which was wonderful. Really enjoyed the water wall which my wife said was soothing and relaxing.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my wife to dinner after reading the many positive reviews. We were greeted by a very nice hostess. Our server was knowledgeable and very attentive. The food was was very good but if you're expecting fine dinning at a savings, I suggest you eat elsewhere.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sea food as well as traditional Italian classics consistently high quality. Bread steamy and flavorful. Classy servers n

Another great dinner
This is our favorite place to treat ourselves to the best!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food for a reasonable price.
It was our first time in this restaurant. It was my girlfriend and I 3rd year anniversary. All I can say is that the food was great from the appetizers to the desert. We had pasta with seafood and OMG it was great! The staff were very friendly as well. Our server kept making us laugh. Overall it was a great night. The only thing we didn't like was we were seated by at the patio and the passing cars were kind of a nuisance which was kind of my fault since I did tell them to reserve a table at the patio. We lived the food so much that we are going to visit again next week!

Deeply Flavored Cuisine, Service!
Beautiful lunch in the back dining room with view of blue ocean. Beige tablecloths and beautiful setting with water cascading down the dividing wall. Knowledgeable service helped us find the right super Tuscan red, Muralia 2008 Sangiovese/Syrah blend from Maremma. We love it when restaurants will let us order from the dinner menu, as we like to really dine well at lunch. Veal scalloppine with porcini mushroom cream sauce and chicken Marsala were excellent, accompanied by spaghetti with garlic and oil and perfectly cooked peppers, and other vegetables neatly wrapped in eggplant. Bread was piping hot, of the perfect size for dipping into the olive oil/balsamic they poured into a plate. Lavazza coffee was delicious, too.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sitting outside for our brunch, we found the menu and recipes very special. Nothing tasted pre-prepared. Homemade pasta!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Attentive service, great food, reasonable prices (for the quality and coronado island).
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Vigilucci's is great!
Vigilucci's has fantastic food and wonderful service. We sat on the patio; the live music was just right, and the ambiance was nice. The servers were very accommodating to our 2-year-old (who absolutely loved the calamari); the seafood risotto was exceptionally tasty. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves good Italian food!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Service and Atmosphere
Our waiter was wonderful one of the best, don't recall his name but he was from Ireland. The Atmosphere was romantic and quiet UNTIL another waiter (not ours) reached over our table and opened the shade to blind us... We were a little surprised he would reach over and do that without asking. I recommend dinner, never tried lunch.. The prices were not bad. Coronado is probably not the best area for a romantic dinner because you have vacationing families that take their small children everywhere and small children nearby tend to make the atmosphere less romantic. If I owned a restaurant I would have an area of the restaurant where I put families with children so they wouldn't be near people looking for ambiance or quiet.

For the Occasion
Reliable for everything to be perfect when you're focused on the occasion.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for the first time and had an excellent dinner. We sat outside on their patio and enjoyed being outside but we could still enjoy the singer in the bar. I had crab cakes for an appetizer and thought they were excellent as was the sea bass. The service was outstanding. We plan to go back soon.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant used to be the former Marie Callender's in Coronado! It is remodeled with an old world feel. The main dining room is indoors, but the entire front window is open to the street to give the illusion of outdoor dining. Very nice touch. Our waiter Antonio was attentive and professional (A native of Naples!) Food is very authentic. Corn soup and crab cake appetizer was delicious. Portofino seafood pasta was loaded with calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels and a very succulent large scallop. Dessert was impressive: dark chocolate lava cake. The only complaint I would have is that for our party of 4, the table was incredibly small and it was a challenge to keep the bread, wine, etc. on the table and comfortably eat your entrée.

Perfect Dinner with Friends
This was a great experience, food was amazing, the service was wonderful - we were very happy that we selected this restaurant.
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
From the moment we walked in the staff was wishing us a happy anniversary (very sweet touch). They gave us a prime table overlooking orange ave (open window- just lovely). The food was amazing and the service was perfect. It was a great end to our anniversary celebration.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE
We were seated at a Great Table with. A nice view. The food selection was as good as the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone at any time.

Great food, great service
Had been for happy hour many times. Went for dinner and was very very pleased. The scallops with risotto cakes were perfection. Everyone loved their food. Service was spot on.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service, food and music
My husband and I ate a great dinner on the terrace in Coronado, seated next to the fireplace. The service was excellent, without being intrusive. He had a very tender rib-eye steak and I had the veal piccata with a side of sauteed spinach. While tasty, my veal was not nearly as tender as his steak. We enjoyed the music from the piano bar, consisting of ballads at just the right volume. The only thing I missed was a view - either of the beach or Orange Avenue.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter was fabulous! There was an impromtu neighborhood couple that played the saxophone and sang along with the piano. It was wonderful and fun for an after dinner drink
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have always enjoyed Vigilucci's
We have always enjoyed Vigilucci's in north county but decided to try it in Coronado. The restaurant has the same high standards of service, food and ambience. It's always a pleasure dining there. Definitely one of our favorite places to eat in San Diego.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happy to be back!
This was one of our favorite restaurants before my husband and I moved away. We've recently returned and it was as good as we remembered. Excellent food and perfectly romantic atmosphere on the patio The live jazz singer who sang covers of the classics was excellent - very talented. Our server was clearly new, so service could have been better, but we'll let that slide, as she was still very nice. And you cannot beat the free corkage when you bring in a bottle of wine from Wine A Bit down the road!

Spent Thanksgiving in San Diego and chose this place for ThNksgiving. Dinner. May not be a fair assessment due to the Holliday 4 of us had the traditional turkey dinner and is was very good. My wife had a cels dish and only had a few bites. Again it was on Thanksgiving do they may not have been on their A game would try it again
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
My girlfriend and I were here for Thanksgiving. I was amazed at the perfect service and food was delicious. I will be definitely going back!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Well you don't often head to your Italian restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner but when you are out of town for the holidays you tend to be a bit more adventurous. I had the turkey which was amazing! My wife had the Butternut Squash Ravioli and it too was amazing. Our waiter, Georgio, was fantastic. Very attentive without hovering, very happy and very quick with suggestions if needed.
We loved our experience there and would certainly go back when we head to San Diego again!
