Again we had a delicious meal in downtown Carlsbad. The meals for all four of us were outstanding and the service sophistocated and professional. There were white tablecloths and a nice decor in the restaurant. Luckily, we were seated at a front window. You can't go wrong by chosing this place and all four of us recommend it highly!

the food here is outstanding. Pasta is delicious. We ate at the bar and the service was very good and the bartender was a fun person and conversationalist . Nothing fancy just a great neighborhood place

Great service, great ambiance and the best tomato sauce I've had in a long time. Baby calamari and the perfect tomato sauce for appetizer. More calamari and huge jumbo shrimp over linguine for a main course ...just lovely. Spumoni and an expresso when can we go again?

We stopped in on Valentine's Day to grab a quick bite to eat before heading to the beach. We sat outside to soak up some sun and enjoyed some delicious pasta dishes. I had the Caprese salad and the house made balsamic was amazing.

We stumbled upon this gem after getting off super busy 101 in Carlsbad. We chose to eat outside in their front porch area The chicken Marsala, the veggies wrapped in eggplant, the butternut squash pasta were phenomenal The service also excellent

I became a fan of Vigilucci's Steak and Seafood location after a girl's weekend dinner where both the food and service are top notch. I decided to bring my family to the Cucina location during a long weekend. While the meatballs and my husband's steak were superb, the service was terrible on several fronts and the calamari in my pasta... More
