Although I said it was our Anniversary when I made the reservation on Open Table, no mention of it was made at the restaurant. Very disappointing. The veal parmigiana was dry and tough...felt like we were served leftovers. The gin and tonic was delicious.

Had a great visit! Great customer service thanks to Lauren and Juan! Entertainment was si nice. Brunch was perfect as far as the crowd was concerned. Nice menu to choose from with a variety to choose from.

We’ve been coming to vigiluccis for 15 years.. they have changed hands. Broken light above our booth, waiter not personable or engaging, food lack luster and the lovely entertainment has been replaced with a young duo that was singing Rihanna and Meghan trainor “ all about the base” not quite the ambience we are used too. I have teenage daughters and they found it ridiculous... end of an era for us. Sad

Disappointing. Should have known better when we walked into the restaurant and were assailed by an overwhelming fish smell. We actually moved rooms to be away from the smell. If this was not enough, we had piped in live music from a peroxide blond wannabe, Buffy St. Marie that had us on edge all evening. It is rare that I cannot find something to try on a menu but this was one of them. The waiter was poorly trained about both food and wine and was just disinterested in serving. Food was poor. If you want pasta in Coronado, try Primavera and give Maretalia a miss.

It was a delightful experience from the moment we walked thru the door. Greeted nicely, good info on seating options, and a casual beauty for the surrounding.
Good food and good service. Not too formal, but very attentive.
I could have had bread offered with the meal, but really good quality on my fish.
Lovely overall.

This was our second visit since they took over for Vigilucci last year. First time here we
had horrible service as they never served our meal. After salads we waited forever for
our entree's while the waiter apologized over and over with no explanation. The manager
finally came to our table, knelt down, apologized and promised "I will make this right" He
left and we never saw him again. Meals finally arrived, we ate, we left. Nothing was made "right."

So we give it another shot and now the menu is so limited and creative it doesn't even
resemble an Italian menu. Prices were higher and choices were ample when it was the
old Vigilucci's but that's history. And so are we.

The hostess said the kitchen was overwhelmed and that her manager wouldn't even let us sit down and order drinks even though it was past our reservation time (and there were several empty tables throughout the restaurant). The service seemed understaffed and disorganized... why was the hostess bringing the bread and parmesan cheese...? They finally let us sit in the bar area to wait to be seated after about 20 minutes, and we ordered drinks, and then waited and waited and never received them until we were finally seated and we asked our waiter about them. I ordered the ravioli and to my disappointment it was dry and not very flavorful. My husband and I were so underwhelmed and disappointed with the entire dining experience. We miss Vigilucci's Ristorante so much which used to be at this location and was always fantastic. We won't be going back to Maretalia's.

Food was average at best, but really nice setting and comfortable place. Couldn’t eat the mushroom bruschetta had a strange taste, wine was good and reasonably priced, bread and gnocchi was good as well. Salmon needed a sauce to give it some flavor . Was ok but won’t rush back.

We saw good reviews of this restaurant and decided to take some out-of-town friends there for dinner. (It's close enough to walk there from our home.) The service was wonderful. Our waiter was helpful, professional, pleasant, and topnotch! The restaurant's ambiance is nice. (Must add, the music was a tad bit too loud.) I hate to have to give this feedback, but the food was just OK -- nothing special at all. Each of us had a different dish and none of us commented about how much we liked our food. It was just... well -- I'm sorry to say, just OK. :(

The service was very prompt. The only objection I had is their choice of music. It was rap music and totally did not fit the environment at that time of the day. Sort of disruptive.

We decided to try this place out during Restaurant Week, and we totally enjoyed our experience. All the food items we tried were nicely done, and our server was very pleasant. We never felt ignored or that we had to wait too long for anything, even though the place was busy. However, I don't think I would personally choose to pay full price for a meal there regularly, but I would recommend it for a special occasion or business function.

Went for restaurant week lunch. Service was excellent and the food was great. Bread and water were served when seated. Calamari and clams were good as starters. Carbonara and chicken parmigiana were also fantastic and serving size was adequate. Added a tiramisu which was really nice.

Beautiful setting and Gabriella did an outstanding job as our waitress. Place was spotless. All staff's attitude was on target. Food portions ample +. Runners brought from kitchen--good!!
HOWEVER the food itself was average. Ok. Not bad--just ok.
That said we will return and see if it was an off nite for the kitchen.

Everything on the menu was amazing... we had 4 appetizers including the roasted carrots, meatballs, arancini’s, and crab toast. The oxtail gnocchi was too die for. And the agnolotti with the brown sage butter was amazing. Hats off to the chef and staff at this amazing restaurant.

Our group was welcomed and seated immediately. Our server came to the table quickly to take drink orders. She was very knowledgeable with regard to the wine and beer list, as well as the food menu. She addressed several questions and was very friendly. The food was excellent as always. I have dined at this restaurant several times before and have never been disappointed. It's a must stop every time I am in Coronado.

Wonderful! First off let us start with parking. The meters are only 25cents an HOUR! Your lucky to get 12 minutes for that quarter in downtown SD. Then walking into Maretalia you are wow-ed by the decor and cascading water wall. We were here for Restaurant Week. They skimped on nothing! The choices were wonderful. I picked the calamari as my first dish. My husband picked the crab bruschetta. Both were large portions. The calamari was very light and crunchy and served with two sauces. The crab was served on three slices of good size toast. And there was enough crab to cover each slice. Our entree choices were the Spaghetti and Meatball, and the Chicken Parm. The meatball was huge and the sauce-authentic Italian. The Chicken Parm covered two thirds of the plate with a good portion of pasta on the last third of the plate. More than we could eat following the first courses! Our waitress was attentive and knew the menu. The plus here is the craft beers on draft! You have a choice of indoor our outdoor dining here. I would come here again-in a heartbeat!

We tried this place for restaurant week and were very disappointed. The food was not very good at all and we were really surprised at that! We all ordered from the restaurant week menu - three of us getting an appetizer, salad and entree and the other ordering an appetizer, entree and dessert. When our appetizers came, so did our salads! Exactly together! No time to enjoy the first at all. The caesar salad was overwhelmed with garlic - way too much and just ruined the whole flavor of the salad. When our entrees came, the pasta dish was beyond dry - we asked for more sauce and had to wait 15 minutes before getting that. By then, our pasta was cold. Our waiter was no where around and in fact, we had to go find him to get our check 30 minutes later! I know the owners of this place have several restaurants in Coronado so maybe they aren't paying much attention to this one. We can only guess that was the reason for a very disappointing visit! Too many other places to try - this one will be off our list!

Tried this place out for restaurant week and didn't disappoint. The service was very nice. Since we got an appetizer, main entrée and dessert, every thing tasted so good and was so worth it. After the meal, the portion of the dessert was perfect and just the right size. Would definitely recommend this place.

I liked the ambiance, but since we were the first guests to arrive for dinner, I was bummed that the greeter did not ask us where we wanted to sit. I purposely booked at sunset time and would have loved to sit on the side with the beautiful view of the sunset, not on the side facing the street. As it was our anniversary, I also kinda was upset that they did not do anything special, no happy anniversary on our dessert or anything like that. The food was good, only compliant was that one of the dishes was pretty salty. Restaurant week is a pretty good time to try their different options.

My husband and I were on vacation and decided to try this Italian restaurant. The menu in open table said the entrees were 13 for spaghetti and 14 for what I wanted. That price sounded reasonable. However, when we arrived for our reservation and the host seated us and gave us menus, the prices were $10 higher for each meal. My husband and I were upset. We decided to leave the restaurant. Upon leaving we checked the menu displayed out side and the prices were the original ones we had seen on open table. We felt like it was a bait and switch. They need to get there menus figured out. So no real review could be done.
