“Delightful outdoor dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is an outstanding Italian restaurant, with a lovely semi enclosed outdoor dining area. Probably I didn't do it justice because I was very hungry. Nevertheless I enjoyed my light bowl of minestrone all the more because it was light.
I did manage to consume a Negroni and a glass of vermintimo, both excellent.
My salad of fried mozzarella balls was a little too heavy on the fried mozzarella, and not enough salad.
Our server (a woman) was very competent and friendly without being overbearing.
I would return to Vigiluccis , for sure!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

This restaurant is quite popular in the Carlsbad area - so make reservations! The service was superb and the food was excellent. A definite "return to" on our next visit to the area!

“Good food with indoor and outdoor seating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Beware of the underground parking garage by the restaurant. You are charged $4.00 a half hour! We went in for happy hour. The happy hour menu is not large but the price is right. The best part of the meal is the free bruschetta. It was probably one of the best I've had. The meatballs were pretty good but the sauce tasted like something out of a jar. The truffle fries and crab cake were good but the beef skewer was not great. The marinated prime beef had very little taste and on the tough side. I couldn't give the food four stars.

“Good Italian, no wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

We walked in when all the other restaurants were busy, and were seated immediately. The service was pretty good, and the food was delicious too. Bread is nice and hot, and served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The pasta tasted fresh, and the clams and seafood were also very good and fresh. A little on the pricey side, but overall a very good meal.
