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

What better way to experience great food looking out to an ocean sunset. It is steps away from the beach in Carlsbad famous for beaches and scenes from Top Gun. It is an upmarket restaurant with valet parking and friendly waitstaff. Food is great, expensive but you get what you pay for! Definitely worth a visit if you are staying... More

You don't want to miss getting a table in this smaller, outstanding venue. And when you taste the deliciousness you'll know why. We 4 ordered different dishes--each one an amazing winner!

We asked our hotel where to find good seafood, ocean front in Carlsbad and they recommended Vigilucci's. We had eaten at the italian sister restaurant the previous night and loved it so we thought the seafood/steak version would be just as good. We were right! We made a reservation online, asking for outside seating. They had saved us a great... More

We ate at so many fabulous restaurants on our trip and this was purely average at best. The waitress had a definite attitude and service was incredibly slow. Felt food was overpriced and nothing special.

Vigilucci's is one of my favorite restaurants especially because their food is delicious without being laden with butter, cream, or salt.

We had good dining and service at the other Vigilucci's in Carlsbad, so decided to try this one. Made reservations on the web site using Open Table, very easy. It being lunchtime on a Thursday, we were given a choice of window, inside or outside seating. We chose a table just inside the open door to the patio. This turned... More
