We had the good fortune of being at this restaurant on a perfect early fall evening. We ate on the patio which I would highly recommend if weather permits. The wine selection by the bottle is great, although a bit expensive. The selection by the glass is good. My wife had the Insalata Alle Per (pear salad) and I the... More

Sitting here now enjoying a great happy hour. Great wine, food, and prices for the location. Staying at the Hotel del Coronado. The staff are wonderful too. Check them out.

Excellent location near beach and Hotel Del Coronado. Super Italian menu with great choices, in a beautiful setting and excellent service by our waiter Fernando. Not a cheap meal but worth every penny and tasted excellent. Well worth another visit

We stayed at the Hotel Del in August. This was our third visit to this great hotel. Each time we come to Coronado, we know the nearby restaurants that we want to visit. Vigilucci's is a must for terrific Italian food. We actually went twice during our last stay. My children even requested it. The atmosphere is perfect and the... More

Best steak dinner I have ever had in the USA. The service was great also. I hope to be back there next year for the Coronado races.

The service and ambiance was good. The food was average Tuscan/Northern Italian food. I had Gnocchi and Veal, and my husband had Lobster Ravioli. A little on the greasy side buy good portions.

Yes! Coming from the east coast and the home of lots of great Italian restaurants, I was really surprised on a Saturday night at how great the food was here. First class Italian restaurant. Highly recommend. Make sure you have a reservation on the weekend.

Coronado has so many restaurants and so many of them are a disappointment: expensive and mediocre food. This is not one of them. Especially at happy hour, Vigilucci delivers great value for money. You will get draft beer at half price but also a complimentary small plate of antipasti. Excellent calamaretti fritti at $7 and there is little space for... More

Outstanding food: Seafood very well prepared. Interesting combinations of flavors. Served by a real Italian with grace and charm. Pretty setting. By our standards, Vigilucci's is expensive--nearly $200 for two with appetizer, main course, and wine--but you get what you pay for: a very fine meal. We weren't in the room where the live music was playing, but having the... More
