Amazing views with indoor and outdoor tables. We come here whenever we are traveling in San Diego for business. Our clients always appreciate the food and the ocean view experience. The servers are friendly and provide exceptional service. We can't wait to go back!

I was in a party of 7 so am I usually more lenient when it comes to service to large parties. This was my first time here and it was a great experience. All the meals came on time and nothing was sent back. There was always someone filling glasses and being very attentive. We had the Antipasto Della Casa... More

First time at this restaurant and was excited when we got there as it is right across the street from the beach. We went with another couple who had been there before. We waited for an outside table - which was worth the wait. Had a mojito with vodka and it was very good. We then were seated and brought... More

A beautiful location right across the road from the ocean. The hostess was very nice when we stopped by in the afternoon and set up a 7:15 reservation for our party of three. When we arrived the same hostess told us an outdoor table would be a long wait but would try to put us inside near the window. She... More

My favorite restaurant in Carlsbad by far. The homemade pasta. The Vigis Cab! The Happiness Hour! State Street Vigis and the 101 Vigis are my hangouts. I was there twice this week and can't wait to go again. The people on State St. The bartender Emma! Simone the handsome charming Italian manager! Wonderful! Juan the bartender at the 101 location,...

While the setting (right across from the beach) and atmosphere are beautiful, and the service was also good, we were just slightly disappointed in some of our food. After reading such rave reviews about the Cioppino, and also taking into consideration that it was one of our server's recommendations, Steve chose that for his entree. We were disappointed that it... More

My wife and I were invited to join some friends for dinner at Vigilucci's Seafood and Steakhouse on Highway 101 (not the OTHER Vigilucci's in Carlsbad which is the TripAdvisor-ranked #2 restaurant in Carlsbad). Our group of 12 sat at a long table in front of a waterfall sculpture wall. We received excellent service and the entrees, selected from an... More

My wife and I ate here on June 6th. I came here specifically for the Cioppino and was not disappointed! My wife had the spaghetti with meatballs that she said was very good. As we eat a lot of Italian food, we are pretty harsh critics. The staff was very attentive, the food superior and the atmosphere comfortable. Prices are... More

There are lots of restaurant choices in Carlsbad village, but few "fine dining" options. If you're looking to save money, this isn't the place. But if you're looking for a great view, the ability to walk along the beach from the village to dinner, friendly service, and lots of choices for well-prepared and varied food, this is your place.
