Had lunch here. Food was of an excellent quality! Choice was not too varied but good enough. Did have a little downtrend when waitron informed us that it was past the lunch menu and we could only choose from specific sections. Unfortunately could not choose what we wanted, but from what was on offer for the time period. Valet parking,... More

The parking is difficult as it is on the beach. The hassle was worth it. Our table overlooked the ocean, the wine was priced reasonably and the food was unique and exceptional quality. Service was perfect. They know how to treat a customer.

Loved being able to dine & enjoy sunset at same time. outside heaters helped keep the chill away as the sun began to set. Food was tasty, a bit pricey.

If $5 parking doesn't deter you, then you'll make it inside this restaurant. Our server spent more time flirting with the hostess than serving people, but he was friendly and attentive when we got his attention. The cooking is very good but perhaps the restaurant is more than half empty for a reason?

This place appears cozy and has a great ocean view across the street. The $46 cotoletta milanese is a gigantic cut of veal with the attached bone. There is enough meat for at least 4 adults. It is the specialty of the house and comes with a delicious arugula salad. You could not eat anything else anyway. The espresso coffee... More

Wonderful food, service and locale in seaside Carlsbad. Located across the street from the beach, a wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary, or in our case, a birthday. The surf and turf was spectacular and the chicken pasta was exquisite. You get what you pay for!

We were seated right away, had a bottle of wine on the table in no time and provided great service all though out our dinner. Not only was our meal fantastic and more than we eat, the service was highly professional. My wife had the fettuccine Alfredo and I had the lasagna. Truly worth every penny.

I wanted an ocean view; he wanted pasta. Vigilucci's Seafood and Steakhouse was a perfect fit. It has outside dining across the street from the beach and serves absolutely delicious pasta dishes! The bread they serve ahead of the meal is absolutely fabulous - a crunch to the crust, soft white middle and so delicious with a dip into the... More
