“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The concierge at the Park Hyatt Aviara recommended this restaurant to my wife and I. We had a fantastic dinner. The filet mignon was cooked to absolute perfection. The service was excellent as well. It was a tad noisy but the place was packed with diners so the noise is understandable. I'd recommend this restaurant for sure.

“Ocean front with great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is not your usual ocean front eatery. This is real restaurant with seriously good service and food. The right food for the right price. Old school in every way and that is a good thing. A regular for us locals.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Go for lunch. It is not usually as crowded as it is in the evening, the menu is pretty much the same but less expensive.

“Here's a little secret...shhhh..don't tell”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Yes, Vigilucci's is an amazing restaurant, a great place for birthdays, anniversaries or a nice (though slightly pricey) dinner. Yes, the view is amazing, too! (Directly across from the Pacific!)

But here's a little secret that only locals know. They have an amazing happy hour and there are only a few seats outside designated spcifically for Happy Hour sitting at the fire pit. So imagine this- Happ Hour prices on great food and drinks, a seat at the fire pit and a view of the ocean! It's an amazing value and experience.

Shhh, just don't tell anyone!
