This is one of our favorite places to meet. Danieli was superb in giving exceptional service as was his assistant. Great food great service great ambiance. We’ll be back
Pricier what we normally pay, but it was a special occasion. Great food, great service, and a great view.
It was everything I was hoping for. Just a little smaller that I expected and very noisy
Vigilucci’s was recommended by Mikayla, the concierge at Grand Pacific Palisades, and it did not disappoint. We had a birthday celebration there. Excellent food, excellent service, and a beautiful view of the sun setting over the water.
Great as udual
My brother, sister and I flew in from different parts of the country to celebrate our Dad's 95 the birthday. The food and service we're outstanding! We dined in the "wine cellar". It was the perfect setting. The staff was very accommodating. We we're all treated so very well. A memory was made that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend this establishment and hope to return again!
Terrible. Overcooked filet, raw burger meat on my daughter's hamburger. Valet driver didn't even pull my car out of the slot in the rain. Horrible experience.
It was a wonderful relaxing meal, the views of the ocean from our back booth was wonderful
Fantastic, friendly service, unbeatable ocean view and the Pappardelle Con Funghi E Capesante was absolutely to die for. We walked here from our friend's place a few blocks away and we're so glad we did. It's the perfect small-size gourmet Italian restaurant. You can't go wrong!
Nice dinner - great food, good service and pleasant ambiance.
Another superb lunch with friends. Vigilucci's Italian food is the best in the San Diego area.
A couple of hints: use valet parking [$6] and try to sit outside where it is quieter. We enjoyed every bite. Service was lovely and you cannot beat sitting and watching the sun set. This was a treat for us.
We went there for a family birthday celebration. Server was helpful and patient. Good maintenance support by the bus staff; bread and drink refills were timely. As always, the steaks were amazing (we had the bone-in new york, ribeye, and filet). This is a steakhouse, so you may want to order your steaks done a degree more than usual (but anything beyond medium does not do the prime beef justice). We were there in the evening, so we missed the usual fabulous sunset views, but we were seated promptly and it was a bit quieter than typical, so no complaints.
We have been to this location many many times since it opened. The food is delicious. My gripe after the fact and what will send me to other fine steak houses is that this location raised the price of their Porterhouse over 20% in the past year to where it is now $80 for the steak.
What a charming restaurant. The food was delicious, the service
excellent and overall it is a restaurant that we want to go back to visit.
First class service and dining experience. Fantastic location.
Our server was gregarious and wonderful! Fish was coooked perfectly and lamb was not gamy. Wine was good value a well.
Great view and wonderful food - we had excellent service.
Nice location but very expensive. I had the ribeye for $69 and it was only average. Seafood dishes also pricey but seemed better.
Had a delicious meal while enjoying the sunset on the outside patio; the service was excellent!
But for the momentary blinding sun (no blinds), the service and food were superb.
The service was great
This place is awesome.
Ordered 2 fish entrees - have shellfish allergies
First one came with shrimp n another with prawns ( not on menu )
Send back and one entree came out right and other one came again with shrimp
We ended up eating our entries separately- lousy experience - especially for $45 entrees
No offered accommodation
Many other better places
Very good excellent service
We're from Tucson and have visited Carlsbad at least 4 times over the past 7 years for a few days by the beach. Have been to Vigilucci's 4 times. Our visit was the first since 2014 and a memorial service in La Jolla was an added reason for the trip. Also, it was a 3 day weekend (President's Day) and everything was pricey, overcrowded and a little too much traffic even for California. The food was exceptional but the MP were much higher than we were used to. The special, Short Rib stuffed Ravioli was exceptional and should find its way on to the regular menu! The crab legs were MP and also very good especially for those of us from Desert country although I was taken back by $75 price. Service was excellent even a little too fast. This is not a complaint just an observation. I feel like the farmer who says he never gets enough rain until he gets too much rain. I also recommend the Spumoni.
We had a great dinner and the service was fantastic! Phenomenal food and drink.
Great food was also great accommodating our kids. We will definitely be back again.
Our experience there was fantastic, we were treated very well and the food was amazing! We will be going back soon.
Biggest complaint I have is that for the $180 I spent the food was abysmal. It sat wrong in my stomach and my fiancée, and we had different dishes. Won’t be coming back
Thank you so much! I thought it was a nice touch to add a signed Anniversary card by each of the employees ! That was so thoughtful! From the host to the waitresses, etc., everyone was very professional and attentive. Again, thank you very much for making this a very special evening!
The view of the setting sun was beautiful. The staff was great from the valet parking attendant to the hostess to the wait staff. The only disappointment was that the management did not stop by the table ( mine nor others) to ensure the dining experience was what one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.
Fabulous happy hour and view!
Fun, lively place with really solid food, great wait staff.
It was our 1st time there . We went for Valentine's Day lunch. The table was an Oceanside view. The service and food was excellent featuring a fantastic wine selection. I highly recommend this restaurant when in Carlsbad.
Waiters and waitresses are excellent...especially Danielle' and Jacquline. We feel special with each visit. Thank you!
Staff is very personable. Very aware when not to interrupt your conversation. Love their specials.
Great food, service and accommodation. We entertained business associates from Europe and they were impressed and thoroughly satisfied. You can't go wrong here!
Service was outstanding the people were outstanding and the food and wine were even better.
When I made the reservation I specifically stated that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. As we were being seated I mentioned it to the hostess and then again to our server in anticipation that the restaurant would acknowledge our special occasion in some way. Unfortunately, my request was ignored. Vigilucci’s did absolutely nothing to make my husband’s special day memorable.
Additionally, we were disappointed to find that there were no dishes appropriate for vegetarians. The entrees either had meat or seafood and the waitstaff advised us that the chef was unwilling to make any substitutions.
All in all, it was an unfortunate, expensive experience that offered no value for us and our guests.
