The seating didn't allow appropriate distancing. We were sat with decent space around us on the front patio. Almost immediately they placed 2 parties near us. One was well within 4 feet and the young woman, when the gentleman noted that she hadn't worn a mask coming in, told him that she didn't believe in masks and refused to wear one. I complained to the manager we were moved but when I asked why they weren't complying with the guidelines to remain open he just said "Talk to the owner. There's nothing I can do."
We are both in our 70's and I find it unacceptable to be putting your customers at risk because you need the business. We left and won't return. We've enjoyed a special night out there frequently but not again while the current conditions exist.
Enjoying dinner outside on the patio is like being on vacation in France or Italy, fabulous!
We had a great experience. It was the best chicken parmigiana I've had. My girlfriend had spaghetti carbonara which was also amazing.
Another great night at Vigilucci's!! Abraham always provides great service and we were happy to have Stefano stop by and chat.
They've done a wonderful job adapting to the COVID environment, tables are spaced well, everything is sanitized and we feel very sage there.
If you've never been there, the food is fantastic!! We make the drive from Dan Point at least twice a month since it is such a great restaurant!!!
We had a wonderful waiter and the food was delicious, great salad and chicken picatta
Hands down the best Italian restaurant in North San Diego. We drive 45 minutes to eat here. The food is amazing, the service is the best, the outdoor seating is beautiful!
VIP Service as usual! Thank you!
Bathrooms were disgusting— dirty , toilet paper all over floors and none of the toilets worked. Didn”t flush! Told staff and they didn”t seem too concerned. Made me unable to eat the rest of my dinner. 😞 we spent almost for $400 On a very disappointing dinner experience.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
Ordered the halibut special and it wasn’t very fresh. My wife had the Cioppino . And some mussels did not open up. It should not of been on the plate. They should’ve seen them and not put them on the plate. We had many great meals from this restaurant before, and very disappointed this time.
The food was good, but I’ve had better at the price point
Food was amazing. Service was quick and polite. Definitely 10/10 recommend.
Amazing food and service; as always.
Excellent service and very professional staff.
Always wonderful food, expert service. $44 for Halibut with risotto was overpriced. A little shocked when the check came. They didn’t reveal the price of specials. We didn’t ask because their prices are reasonable. Ouch.
Great service and great value for fine dining. Large portions and great ambiance.
We celebrated my husband's birthday here. He is Italian and takes his food and wine seriously. Vigilucci's did not disappoint. Our party of 8 had a wonderful time and our server was so accommodating and provided great service.
Viviana was great! food was fantastic! Really enjoyed our experience 😊
Been there many times and its always a positive experience for food, drink and service.
So great they are back.
Amazing food and service. I would highly recommend
very good service great one of my favorite resturants
Prompt service excellent food and great atmosphere
Amazing authentic Italian food (and staff!) Special surprise birthday dessert was delivered to my husband. Our favorite Italian restaurant (EVER)!
Excellent salmon and eggplant Parmesan! Would highly recommend!!
Just awesome Italian traditional standbys and great exclusive creations! We love both their Carlsbad establishments.
Wonderful ever time
The restaurant had our table ready on time. They promised outside seating and came through with that. Too bad so many motorcycles drive by and rev their engines, no fault of the restaurant. Overall a positive experience.
Abraham was amazing!!!
Great food, ambiance, and exceptional service
Excellent food. But more than that, obviously seasoned staff. Friendly, efficient without being overbearing.
A late lunch here on Wednesdays at an outdoor table, as the farmers market sets up on adjacent State Street, makes for a wonderful afternoon. We always start with the grilled artichoke heart appetizer. There are a multitude of pastas from which to choose afterwards. We’ve tried four different ones, all very good
The veal parm was tough and burnt. The sauce was bland. Worst veal parm I ever have had. Wait staff was excellent though.
Fantastic Service! Amazing Food! Staff was super nice! Highly Recommend!
We were disappointed in the service and the food at Vigilucci's. Our waiter was a bit arrogant and the food was far from outstanding. The chicken parmesan was over-cooked and lacked flavor. The red pepper flakes in the pasta in 4 out of our 6 dishes was so over-pouring, it ruined the meal. I told the hostess we were celebrating a birthday and she told me she would tell our server. The communication never was communicated. We spent a lot of money and were very disappointed. We will not be returning.
Everything was excellent. From start to finish the food was superb, the wait staff was first rate. It is a favorite spot for all occasions.
Food was amazing and service was great!
Great little place and a good meal with different flavors.
I try to visit Vigilucci's Cucina Italiana every time I'm in town. I hadn't been for a long while and it was such a treat to be back. The food was excellent - I had the delicious Capellini alla Checca with no protein. So many restaurants offer this dish and do it poorly serving it bland and unappealing. Vigilucci's dish was bursting with flavor. It is also a big portion so I had enough remaining for another meal. We were there for an early lunch on a beautiful day.The oversized windows were wide open to let the breeze in and it was really a lovely atmosphere. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive (a delicate balance). He helped to make the luncheon delight.
As a food snob, I highly recommend Vigilucci's Cucina Italiana.
We eat at Vig's a lot. Mostly at the Encinitas location. Always excellent service, food and ambience.
I Iove the happy hour menu it's a meal in it self. The best ribs in town at Encinitas location. And my husband loves the oysters at Carlsbad on Coast Hwy.
We were looking forward to a pleasant dinner at a highly rated restaurant a few blocks from where we were staying. The service was excellent. The dining room is small and somewhat loud once it fills with customers. I had the veal Marsala. The veal scaloppine was good. The preparation of the vegetables and pasta was interesting, with an effort to add some heat to the meal with chili pepper flakes in the pasta. My wife’s dinner was disappointing. She loves Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. Unfortunately, the chicken was overcooked and dry. She’s much too polite to return a meal to the kitchen, and she didn’t want to ruin the mood of the evening. This is a popular restaurant with excellent reviews. Our experience might have been an exception.
