We really like this place and started coming here when it was Robbie's, before the white linen was added to the table. Still a fantastic restaurant with great service. We lucked out and sat in the back portion of the restaurant which feels like eating in a cozy home - way more laid back than the front of the house and that was perfect for us. Enjoyed a HUGE steak which was plenty for two people. The wine list is okay and had a few nice options by the glass. Will definitely be back.

I am from NY and everyone we visit I try and find good Italian. Well this trip we found excellent Italian at Vigilucci's. Our waiter Donny was awesome with his wine recommendations for our entrees . We had the Rigatoni with eggplant and sausage and Spaghetti and meatballs. Going back again today!

Excellent venue for a special occasion and/or fine dining. The food was great (salmon, chicken, pizza...), the staff very attentive, the piano player in the bar delightful. Be prepared to pay for such excellence.

Most everything was great and the service was spot on ! Good wine recommendations. Only downer was the "fresh" tomatoes were not ripe and tasteless.
