Halibut was outstanding! Cooked to perfection with a very tasty sauce that did not mask the flavor of the halibut. Will definitely return on my next visit to Carlsbad.
My family ate dinner there the other night. We had a great experience, from the convenient valet parking to the pleasant hostess, great service from our server, Dani, and great food. I had the squid risotto with ink sauce which was delicious. My spouse had the cioppino, which is served in a giant platter and appears to be the restaurant's signature dish. The ahi tuna special and the mixed meat grill were also excellent. They have an outstanding wine list, featuring many Italian wines, well thought-out, with some good values. All in all, a great experience and we will be back soon.
Great service by the entire team!
We have eaten here many times and the experience has always been top notch. The food coupled with the sunset was a nice end to a day.
The food and service was phenomenal. Yes it was expensive but it is definitely worth doing a date night there.
Wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely be back!
We were at a table inside that just wasn’t good for conversation f. One of our 6 asked if we could be moved and as soon as a table became available, they moved us and we kept the same waiter, Luca. Service was awesome! Table was great for our group! Food was fantastic!
Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and provided great suggestions. She as very attentive to our table and provided excellent customer service. Our waiter even brought us a nice desert since I had noted it was our anniversary. Overall, our experience was great.
Our Anniversary sunset dinner was exquisite. Our waiter was excellent. The food was delicious. Compliments to the chef!!!!
Always a favorite spot for a nice dinner and/or sunset! Never disappoints!
Perfect place for a seafood/steak with italian atmosphere
Absolutely a fantastic experience. We had never been to the area, nor had we seen the sun set over the pacific. Exquisite food, and a delightful waiter by the name of Marco who pointed us to the right wine and made the whole time one to remember.
Can't beat the veiw!! The food was excellent as usual, never a disappointment. A variety to choose from, hard to make a decision. The ambiance is great, one of our favorites for sure.
would definitely go back to!
really enjoyed the sunset on the patio as was very special for sure!
Great food, service and across from the Beach...what else can you ask for?
The food and service were excellent! My server was very attentive, and everything from appetizer to dessert were delicious.
Wish you where closer, we would be there each and every week!
YOUR SO Great!!!
Birthday food and service great
Best lasagna I’ve ever had
Celebrating my wife's latest art show and just wanted to try the different location-we've been going to the other one in Encinitas for years. A real treat! Great cocktails, dinner and wine plus Jeff spiffed us on dessert. Courtney our server was an angel. She made our first visit here perfect. Also perfect: my steak and my wife's cioppiono.
The food and view were great but the cost was excessive.
Outstanding! Valets were great; Dining room and view were lovely; Our server was perfection; The food and cocktails were delicious! My husband had the filet mignon, my son had the spaghetti portofino and I had the Halibut in Lobster sauce. Five stars for everyone on the Vigilucci's team! We will be back!
Outstanding food with a view, what could be better?
Our dinners were excellent. My Aragosta Diavola and wife’s Penne Vodka were outstanding.
We dine out often and too bad we don’t live in the area, because it would be one of my favorite places to dine.
It’s a must try.
In addition we had fabulous service.
Great food, service, and a nice view
Great food!! Excellent service. Highly recommend
Attentive, professional waitstaff . Food quality; artful with exquisite, sensuous flavors. A must for those who appreciate a top quality experience.
We ordered the best (most expensive) filet steaks on the menu and it was pretty disappointing. Both my wife and I came for our anniversary and ordered the Prime Filet, we both felt it was bland tasting and not of a high quality. For a "steak house" we expected MUCH better. Ironically we both felt the steaks we have had at the Italian restaurant Vigiluccu's just down the street was much better. Kinda a bummer for a $300 bill for 2.
Great location and overall good food.
Great view to start. The crew is superb! Starting with the hostess and the rest of the of the staff a great place for any occasion ......
Great service!! Excellent food well prepared
We are Regular customers, and We sat outside at the bistro bar tables. The view that comes with these tables are wonderful, but keep in mind they are first come first serve, so we gave up the dinning table instead. It was our anniversary and we chose to try for the first time the seafood tower for 2. It was excellent! The market price was $130, and while we would’ve like to see more jumbo prawns(only 2), rather than more of the smaller shrimp. Ask for warm drawn butter, goes great with the crab legs and lobster tail. Perhaps they could give you a list of what exactly and how many- the seafood tower comes with, it seems that it may change based on food availability. Looking forward to our return.
Wonderful as always!!!!
Perfect! Loved it
Amazing food and service. We all enjoyed our dinners, plus had a direct ocean view at sunset time.
All was good except the prawns my wife had did not smell good. Might have been spoiled. Waiter tried to salvage them but they ended up making her not feel well.
Waiter cut her meal cost in Half which was appropriate.
Everything else was very good.
Went for my birthday dinner. It’s nice and in front of the beach.
A great place for anniversary dinner with my wife. We were seated immediately, service was fantastic, food was great, and the view of the sunset was incredible.
The Best Italian food I’ve had! This is now my favorite Italian place!! Great service too!
Amazing service and great ambiance. Would have liked to have more than one choice in terms of daily fish entree's.
Very good overall experience.
