This restaurant is one of my go-to eateries in the area. I've only been here for dinner and it never disappoints. Make sure to get the artichoke dip served with the fresh baguette, so good! Great drinks, a simple menu filled with great food, & amazing service. More

When we first walked the hostess was alert and seated us quickly. While we were seated we met a celebrity, Aj Johnson, from The movie Act of Valor. We had a wonderful server and great food! The location of the Vigilucci's is great, so we will defiantly be back. More

Trattoria I Trulli is one of my favorite restaurants both for location, the ambiance and above all the food and friendly service. I have celebrated several family events there. Most recently I enjoyed the company of my daughter at lunch. I highly recommend Trattoria I Trulli for a just about any dining occasion. More

We’ve lived in California for ten years and this is by far the best Italian restaurant in north county San Diego! The bread was warm, and we share caesar salad both plates were chilled. Our waitress Christine was exceptional in every way. My mom had the special Halibut with vegetables and homemade pasta. I had the Pollo Scarpariello it was delicious. We celebrated moms birthday with tiramisu it was scrumptious. More

First time visit. Great place. Never had the wines so went with recommendations. Pretty good wine. I want to go back and try some other varieties. Liked the charcuterie but wished they had more meats/cheeses and less onions. Definitely a parking challenged place. Ended up in dirt across the street and no cross walk to cross over. But other then that, really looking forward to next visit. More

Discover Encinitas

Encinitas, CA, boasts inviting accommodations, fun nightlife, a wealth of activities and consistent waves. It was once named one of the best surf towns in the world by National Geographic. Whether you choose to surf or just watch the antics, one thing you will not want to miss is eating in the local restaurants. Often people start their day with a healthy omelet prepared with locally grown ingredients like avocados and asparagus. Many seaside cafes offer lobster rolls, crab rolls, and shrimp rolls. It seems that tacos just taste better when they are eaten on Encinitas' beaches. As the sun begins to set, there are many upscale restaurants greeting guests with outstanding seafood and steaks along with gorgeous views.
