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

Dinner for our anniversary last night. A slight bump in the road when we first were seated. They brought water, then bread and then we sat. Wait staff passing by. Saw the manager up with the hostess so I went up and asked if we were getting a waiter. Oops. Waiter was there, but no one told him he had... More

One of the best italian meals I've eaten!! I had pasta with seafood in a white sauce and it was outstanding. My wife's meal was also. Great service, wonderful view overlooking the Pacific. Make reservations as it gets crowded.

Very disappointed with the meal I had. The lasagne was barely warm and not very good. My husbands food was better which he enjoyed. The location is excellent right near the beach good for watching the sun set

This is the fanciest and best of the Vigilucci family restaurants. The food is very good and it is directly across the street from the ocean. Outside patio gets lots of sun. Valet parking. We go here a few times a year for dinner on special occasions. But I also meet girlfriends at the bar for a glass of wine... More

The finale of a week in Carlsbad!! Took a wonderful walk at sunset along the beach, the city did an awesome job to get the full benefit with their pathways. Happened to see Vigilucci's and crossed the street to check it out. Met Victorio at the entry and he was the reason I decided to make reservations for my finale... More
