I have eaten at Vigilucci's a number of times over the years, for both lunch and dinner. The choices are always abundant, the food extremely tasty and artistically presented.

We've been going to this restaurant for years, but the quality certainly dropped off this visit. The prices get higher every visit, but it seems the amount of seafood in the dishes has become smaller and smaller. We will not return on our next trip to Carlsbad.

There are other locations in San Diego, our favourite, by far, was the filet mignon. Possibly the best in La Jolla. Also a great Happy Hour. To bad they left La Jolla!

Each time we come back to LaJolla we add this to the list...we had dinner here the first time we arrived. You must try the ribbon pasta with the mushrooms (papardelle)...with the brandy cream sauce....... we started the dinner with the antipasto for two which has crostini with a tuna tempanade..calamari, salami, cheese...very good! Enjoy and dine well!
