We were 7 of us girlfriends celebrating two girls birthdays. We got there early so we could decorate our table special for the birthday girls. They were running late as the group didn’t want to leave the table. The waiter was great, tending to everyone. The restaurant was full as it was Restaurant Week. There was a group of guys at the bar when we first got there and were in golf attire, and clearly had to much to drink they then got seated right after we were seated. One of the men was clearly drunk and loud and obnoxious. He started to get into an argument with an older man then started to say inappropriate racial slurs, which caught our attention as he was say beaners and 1/2 of our group was Hispanic. He then worked his way over to our table dropping F-bombs after every word he said. I thought that he should have been kicked out when he got into the fight with the older man, now he really crossed the line. Our family goes to Vigilucci’s all the time and celebrate many occasions at all your restaurant. It was just a bit disappointing that the staff wouldn’t fave removed his bad behavior as it spoiled our evening.
Excellent choices. Great meals by all.
Sea Bass was exceptional and the fillet was generous.
Food was very good. It did take a long time from when we ordered to when we actually received the food, but it was excellent. The patio is heated and during the day, there’s an incredible view of the ocean.
You can go here for any occasion and always leave happy and satisfied!
Great view. Valet guys are wonderful. Vino was perfect.
Dirty utensils & outside seat is noisy cause next 101fwy. Pricey overall
We love Vigilucci’s! Always a must visit when we are in Carlsbad!
What a wonderful location....beautiful view, beautiful views and tasty food.
Great place to meet special friends...parking is available with a $6 fee.
As a reqular customer, food, ambiance, staff are top notch. A must go to spot in San diego.
One of my favorite places in Carlsbad! The view from the patio is amazing, service is fantastic and a great place to watch the sunset. It’s always a pleasure to dine here.
I understand that a restaurant with an ocean view is apt to cost more but this was still over the top. To add insult to injury they wii charge you $5 if you want more bread. Food was good but tended to be salty. Outside patio is nice but is right on a main road and noisy. Not sure I’d go back
Fabulous specials and waiter was wonderful.
Great place and really excelent food. Will Go anytime again
Server (blond woman) must have been having a bad night. She couldn’t have cared less about us. Disappointing experience for a $100 per person New Years Eve dinner. Won’t be back
Fabulous!!!! Amazing dinner. Great service!!
Great way to celebrate newly year's eve. Server was great. Food perfect
Service was excellent, food was delicious and beautifully plated.
Wonderful dining experience with an awesome oceanfront location!
Service was excellent, food were delicious. We’ll be back.
The food is always amazing. It's not cheap, but it's delicious and totally worth paying a little extra.
The food and service was outstanding, a great variety of cocktails and wine.
A perfect place to celebrate any occasion, not to mention that it has a beautiful patio with an amazing ocean view and the sunsets there are breathtaking.
Everybody is very attentive and friendly, I will totally come back. Totally recommend it.
Great food, but crowded and noisy and very expensive!
Great restaurant! Good for date night and friends and family dinners.
This was my wife's and I first trip to Carlsbad and Vigilucci's by the beach came with high recommendation and they did not disappoint. The way they prepared the Alaskan Halibut is the best I ever had
All good but overpriced
One of our favorite places to bring out of town business guests and family!
I celebrated my best friends 70th birthday on 12/12/2019. We shared a plate of the house salad that was terribly plated and was overdressed with balsamic vingarette and scant crumbles of bleu cheese - horrible! Would not choose this restaurant as a special occasion place. Service was excellent - food was meh...
Another great meal. Always a pleasure to take friends to enjoy the overall experience. Daniella is the best.
A lovely restaurant for a splurge however, I found the prices to be rather high.
Great date night getaway!
Always outstanding food and service. Daniella is the best ever. View is perfect, also!
Maybe the best Tuna dish I've ever eaten. Had some of my wife's Risotto special, which was good as well. Energetic place. Would definitely recommend. Service was excellent
Excellent service. Our waiter was exceptional. The food was was yummy. The total bill was higher than expected but still a very enjoyable evening.
Awesome view and precise service of delightful food and blue cheese martinis.
I would recommend the restaurant if you want to take someone to a place with an ocean view. I would not recommend it to people that are dining with older companions as the noise level is sooo loud, conversation with them is limited to impossible. My dad and mom could not even converse with anyone at the table. Our waiter, was exceptional and he was the best part of the dining experience. We had not been to Viggiluccis in quite some time and were a little surprised at the entree prices. It is expensive. I understand steak and some seafood being pricey, but $30 plus for PASTA? Unless you specifically want an ocean view (and go there during daylight hours) there are other restaurants that compare food wise at much less cost.
We were serve seven oysters two of the five that we attempted to eat tasted like a butt hole. OK a porta potty. The next morning and into Sunday still going to bathroom.
Amazing experience, food and service.
Excelent place to go!
Vigilucci's is definitely for special occasions. Very expensive and beautiful with fantastic ocean sunsets, great drinks, and great staff. The food is good, but not phenomenal. The NY steak, especially, was tough even though prime cut and aged. Vegetables were unremarkable and the pasta was excellent.
We came here for our anniversary dinner and I am so thankful for the great service and food. We ordered the (please excuse my English translation as I don't know the Italian version) Lobster and Spaghetti, Catch of the Day (Halibut with Shrimp on top) and Truffle Fries. All 3 were exquisite in both presentation and taste. In fact, that Lobster and Spaghetti was perhaps the 2nd best pasta I've ever had in my life. I don't know how real Italian chefs cook such a light yet tasteful sauce because as hard as I try, I can't recreate it. This place is delicious and lovely and I am glad I had found this place during my trip to Carlsbad.
