Good Friends & Food

Planned to take friends for a nice casual dinner. We decided on Vigilucci's Seafood and Steakhouse. Couldn't have made a better choice. We had excellent service and delicious food. Everyone was happy with their meal. We will be back!

My wife and I went to Vigilucci's for our anniversary last week. Every part of the experience was excellent. The staff was extremely friendly, our view from the patio was beautiful, and the food was incredible. It's not cheap, but it's worth it.

Got a reservation relatively late and were able to sit outside facing the beach. While this is right next to a popular road, the glass wall stopped much of the unwanted noise. Service was attentive. It started to rain and the staff assured us they would take care of us either by moving us or using market umbrellas. Note that... More

Authentic Italian food and great service! We tried the recommendations for the night, Sea Bass and Spicy Sausage Ravioli, but our take out was the star....the Lasagna! The lasagna was fantastic!

Ok, this restaurant is associated with the other two they own. The one on state had excellent food, but service ok, so I felt like a steak. I ordered rib eye and it tasted pretty good.Pricey though 55.00 just for steak. So, we split the 16 oz , ordered a potatoe, and got a shrimp cocktail to share. appox 90.00... More

We ate here twice while visiting Carlsbad for the weekend. The service, atmosphere and food was all on point so one was not enough. Fernando and Celeste were our servers and we appreciated their friendly professionalism.

I booked dinner at this restaurant for a large group of girls. Obviously, seating a large group of people on a busy Saturday night is a challenge. I went ahead and called a few days ahead of time and made a reservation to ensure we wouldn't have any issues. When we arrived, the hostesses mentioned they didn't have our seating... More

I have tonight eaten best Spaghetti Vongele ever. That was the only good thing about the meal. Worst service I think I've had in the States. The waiting, forgetting and even arrogance was not a nice experience for me and my daughter.

I arrived for an early dinner at 5:30 and was seated outside. Surprisingly, the traffic noise didn't bother me and it was quite pleasant. I saw that people were equally comfortable dressing up or casually. The goat cheese in the the zucchini flower appetizer was superb. I order the Prime Filet which was cooked perfectly and was absolutely mouth watering.... More
