Went with a large group (4 adults, 5 kids) and despite being a 'fancier' restaurant than we usually go to with kids---it was great and service was fantastic. Everyone loved their food---delicious. Nice outside space too.

My wife and I went here for happy hour last week. We arrived around 5:30 and sat in the bar area. We tried the pasta bolognese (which was to die for), meatballs, ahi tuna sliders, hamburger sliders, and a salad. All the food was fantastic except we were disappointed in the hamburger sliders. I would not order them again. Both... More

Went for happy hour on a Wednesday. Reasonable crowd at the bar at 615. Nice seating with view in the bar as well. Great service all the way through from the maitre d to the bartenders and staff. I sat next to a couple who come twice a week, every week. That's an endorsement! Good sized happy hour menu with... More

We ate lunch here and our meals were really good. My husband had rare ahi tuna pannini, and said it was good. I had chicken marsala and it was really quite good. The only thing we had that was a little disappointing was the cannoli. It was a little dry but then again we have never found any to compare... More

Went for happy hour and it was so good. We have the Pasta Bolognese, Meatballs, Ahi tuna sliders, and a salad which were all fantastic! Service by our waiter Carl was also great. Also toward the end a lady came in to play piano which we were sitting right next to so I was a little worried (you never know)... More

I was with several other weary travelers having flown from Michigan to attend a work related affair in San Diego. We had quickly changed into casual attire and decided we needed something to eat before using our free time to do a little exploring. We happened by Vigilucci's and the menu was posted on the street. The place looked pretty... More

I wanted to take my mom for lunch here but we arrived just after 3pm after visiting San Diego Zoo. Lunch time just expired but I was told they had happy hour menu from 3pm to 6pm I believe. The variety of appetizers was very attractive and we decided to go for it. Well, maybe we were hungry and these... More

The staff were very professional, proper & just the right amount of attentive. The food was delicious. I had the spaghetti with mussels - great.

An italian restaurant about a block from Hotel Del Coronado. I saw a sign for a piano bar, so walking upstairs to the main entrance, I was taken through the restaurant (which was nicely appointed, and clearly upscale) to a bar toward the back. A pianist was playing famiiar toons in the corner, bartenders were friendly, quick, and poured a... More
