Diner Reviews
  • "We had an overall excellent experience! Started in the bar for drinks and the superb artichoke appetizer. Then had dinner on the outdoor terrace overlooking Orange. It was perfect and much more comfortable than I thought it would be and it was nice as you could hear the live music from the bar. The restaurant is very pretty and much different from the one in Encinitas. Food just delicious! Never disappointed. Had the veal Milanese. Huge portion! Very nice evening. Would definitely go back."

  • "Service and food were inconsistent -- although the patio and restaurant were not full, service was slow; courses were rushed and server missed several order details, never returned to check on entrees, ask if we wanted another bottle of wine, etc. Cocktail ordered specifically with fresh lime juice and served with Roses Lime Juice. Pasta in signature dish was undercooked and clumped together under wonderful sauce."

  • "The restaurant has a very small patio off an open air bar. Great pianist/vocalist. Very good food, pricey, but that is life! Nice wine list. Service poor to spotty. That took away from what would have been a great meal."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We dined at Vigilucci's with our two kids. We had a nice table outside and there was live music in the bar. Food was great. We ordered the lobster risotto and while it was good, we weren't given proper utensils for the lobster and the shells were not cracked properly, so we had to send it back to the kitchen. Otherwise, the mains were good with large portion sizes. Kids menu was great."

  • "As local Coronadons we are regulars at Vigi's. When dining there on July 4 and seeing how packed the restaurant was with everyone wanting to leave before fireworks we were skeptical that service and food could be as wonderful as usual. Well, they sure proved us wrong....our salads and entrees were superb and they sent us happily on our way to enjoy the fireworks on time. THAT is professional! Thanks again Vigis .."

  • "Great food, service was slow and our food took a really long time to arrive. Staff gave us extra wine as an apology. Prices were high but given the portion size and neighborhood it turned into a reasonable amount."

  • "My husband and I took my mom and dad to dinner here for Father's Day. We got out of the play we attended before dinner earlier than expected, so we were quite early for our dinner reservation. The staff was still very friendly and able to seat us at a nice table right away. The service was outstanding, the food was delicious, and we had a great time. None of us had been before, and we were all very pleased with the experience, and will definitely be going back."

  • "Came here as two couples for happy hour. The food and the service are very good. Everyone is very attentive and professional. There happy hour had a live jazz duo (singer and pianist)performing jazz standards; very good overall, I believe this place is better for dinner than happy hour. Recommend to those in the area of Coronado and want some upper scale italian food."

  • "After a very long day the dinner and drinks at Vigilucci's were superb! The service was excellent, non intrusive but available as needed. The food was truly delicious. The cioppino with the pasta was really amazing. The drink pours were generous. I would give all excellent marks. If I had to find a negative it would be the fact that there are, from time to time, loud auto engines traversing Orange Ave that can be a little disruptive. There were couples and families dining near us and the ambiance was very pleasant. Best of all, the price was reasonable. Over all, GREAT!"

  • "I've had the good fortune to eat at both the Coronado and the Encinitas / Leucadia location. Both have had really excellent food, the service has been wonderful, the restaurants are both beautiful in their decor and the wines recommended for the meals have been spot on. A strong recommendation to make a stop at any of the Vigilucci restaurants. Also a real pat on the back to our server this weekend, Amador, he has only been at the restaurant a short time but you'd never know it from his knowledge of the menu and the wine list. A real pleasure having him take care of us!"

  • "My husband and I are residents of Coronado and were thrilled when Roberto opened his restaurant in Coronado. We used to frequent Vigilucci's in Encinitas and now have the convenience of great food and ambiance in our own neighborhood. We have enjoyed many meals, happy hours and events at Vigiluccis, and appreciate the dog-friendly atmosphere. I only have one critique from our recent Easter Sunday meal and that was my veal marsala was less than stellar and a disappointment."

  • "Reservations are a must for weekend dinners; it's a very popular restaurant. Large window in main dining room overlooks Orange Ave, adding to the evening ambiance. Service was attentive and professional. Noise level was on the high side, especially if seated near the waiting area. Food was outstanding. I had the spaghetti with mixed seafood/marinara sauce, and the pasta was perfectly al dente and seafood plentiful and fresh. My wife had penne pasta in vodka sauce with prawns, and was very happy with it. The hearts of palm salad was forgettable, however; my wife was pleased with her Caesar salad, however. Servings were so generous we couldn't try out the desserts! Loved being able to make a reservation via OpenTable."

  • "Wife and I were celebrating 10 years and they made it a special occasion with a romantic corner with full view of the sunset. Live piano was an additional touch that makes it feel more personal. The staff was so professional and willing to serve, they have an extensive list of wines to choose from, and the food was quickly prepared and tasted amazing! Beautiful time!!"

  • "We go to Vigilucci's frequently. We enjoy sitting in the bar and ordering from the happy hour menu. There is a piano man nightly, which adds enjoyment and fun to the evening. Service is always great. We occasionally take out-of-towners there for dinner too. We are confident that those looking for specially-prepared seafood dishes will be pleased---as will those looking for pastas or Italian fare. Keep doing what you're doing!"

  • "Lovely fine dinning at Virgilucci's on Coronado Island. My sister flew in from Atlanta for her birthday and wanted to dine at one of the Virgilucci's restaurants as she formerly lived in the are and was a big fan. We requested a nice table with an experienced server and asked to make a fuss over my sister's birthday. We received a terrific table overlooking Orange Ave. and a lovely professional server in Elisabetta. My sister enjoyed her Virgilucci's birthday card upon being seated and Elisabetta demonstrated extremely professional and courteous service. We decided to order a salad to share after our orders had been placed (as we saw how lovely the salad looked at another table), but Elisabetta made it happen and even dividing the sa"

  • "Across from the Del hotel is the finest Italian restaurant outside of NYC. Our first visit and not to be our last. Brunch was beyond expectations - seafood omelet contained copious amounts of lump crab, and shrimp; seasoned lightly but with full flavour. Even the coffee was outstanding - robust flavour, Italian style. A visit to Coronado must include a meal at Vigilucci's."

  • "My husband and I tried this place for the first time and were very happy with the whole experience. Our waiter was very Italian and so n top of everything. The sun had just set and we could see the ocean out the window. the water wall was beautiful and we could here live music on the patio. All around great place. We will return."

  • "Vigilucci's locations throughout the county are outstanding, and this one is no exception. You can't go wrong with the menu; pick anything that looks good to you and I guarantee you'll love it. The service is absolutely impeccable, and the staff are all warm and very friendly. The Coronado location is closest to Downtown San Diego, but if you're in the North County I also recommend trying their Carlsbad Blvd. location, which has spectacular ocean views and equally good food and service."

  • "Outstanding service. Outstanding food. I had veal saltimbocca and it was the best I have had. My wife's dish of pasta was bland. A comment to the waiter and her dish was quickly taken away. No questions. No excuses. When it returned it was a freshly prepared meal and it was delicious. I just think the chef forgot something on a very busy night. Near us was a large party with 4 small children. The waiter attentiveness to the parents and children was very good. I am from San Francisco and grew up in a very large Italian family. I know good food and good service. This restaurant could easily compete with the best SF has to offer. If you are in San Diego or lucky enough to be in Coronado. Make a reservation."

  • "When we got to Vigilucci's, we were seated immediately. We ordered drinks, and then the waiter had us move tables.. twice. I don't know what it was about, because our original table was not taken. Other than that odd incident, I really liked this place. The food was great! Even though they were busy, the service was still very good, and the restaurant was still quiet. We went for my Wife's Birthday/Valentine's Day. It was a romantic restaurant, with live entertainment, and a notable wine list. The prices were reasonable too."
