“Fantastic food and beautiful place to watch sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We went to Vigilucci's in January, but I recommend going in the summer so you can watch the sunset on the ocean (it's right across the street from the beach). Food is kind of pricey, but very good. I recommend the salmon--fantastic. Excellent service and beautiful decor. The Vigilucci's in Encinitas is really nice too, but right on a busy street.

“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.
