    Its such a pleasure to return to this outstanding restaurant. The crabcakes were tasty and moist, the caprese salad was unbelievable and the halibut meltedin my mouth. This lovely luncheon would not have been possible if not for our great server. He even remembered us from month ago. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

    We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner. Service was welcoming and attentive. Ambiance was lovely with view of the ocean- only drawback was a few noisy kids nearby (our kids are older and not so noisy). Food was delicious, scallops &amp; seafood cooked perfectly, 8 oz filet was excellent. Our server made sure our wine glasses stayed full. We were treated to a delicious creme brûlée on the house for our anniversary- unexpected and fun! We had a memorable, sweet night at Vigilucci’s.

    The service was outstanding! But the food for the expense was less than inspiring. The Shrimp cocktail was impressive, but the Carne plate for the cost was a disappointment. The steak although tender lacked flavor. a side sauce would have been a plus, but was not offered. Same as the chicken. and an over cooked sausage. The two fish dishes that were ordered were better. Good risotto . Salads were just so so. When spending over $400. for a meal, one would expect a foodie experience, this was just okay. Yes , if you get an ocean view table it can be a nice touch, but very noisy. I'd suggest hitting happy hour and that menu. As Mentioned the staff was very good and welcoming, but they need to brighten the flavors to match.

    Overall is was good, but the noise level in the outside dining area was terrible, I couldn’t hear what my table guests were saying. I definitely would not choose to sit in that location again especially since I had not seen my friends in three years and wanted to catch up with them. Also, valet parking was full , so it was either wait for someone to leave or find parking on our own.

    Expensive but predictably good. The encrusted salmon was very satisfying and the plate was generous. Our waitress, Pasha, ran the whole evening while we were there. A real professional who's frequent return to the table was well timed. We were celebrating a birthday so when the complimentary creme brule was offered, we were impressed. BTW, it was THE BEST CREME BRULE I've ever had, bar none. As long as we can afford it, we'll keep going back. How many great oceanside restaurants are there in the world? This is one of them, for sure.

    This was our second time visiting your magnificent restaurant. We came in March of 2022 and revisited last night bringing our best friends ( one of which is from Long Island) and from Cicilian decent. We were delighted to have our table ready and we were seated and waited upon immediately. We and our pallets were treated to a delicious dinner with generous portions perfectly cooked and presented. Our guests were well pleased and delighted with our choice for the evening. We can't find anything that measures up in our home state of Arizona... We'll be back!

    The steak was not worth the price. My husband ordered his steak medium well which seemed good. I ordered mine medium and it was so undercooked I couldn’t even finish it. I didn’t bother complaining because it was my birthday and I didn’t want to be negative and I don’t like sending thing back to the kitchen but for the price of what we paid, I feel like they should have known better. I would say my steak was rare to blue. It was so disappointing.
