“Disappointing for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were told this restaurant was a good bet, with good food for a reasonable price. If I'm honest, we left feeling slightly cheated.
The food wasn't terrible, but that's about it. We walked away puzzled and a bit disappointed. None of the dishes stood out as being good or bad, the only thing I would say is that a piece of veal for $40 (or close) should be amazing and I've eaten better elsewhere for less that half the price.
Staff were polite and friendly but it was asking way too much for something I am sure you get get everywhere else for far less.

“Great service and view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

The service and view from the rooftop restaurant were great. It was bit chilly but they have heaters on the patio. Location was fantastic. Wine list (bottle or by the glass) was good as expected in CA. Salad was good and main courses were average. For Coronado, the food was good...we had much better meals inland though!

“Bella, Bella, Bella!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Excellent food and good service. We loved the location and atmosphere. Our server was "spot-on" in the beginning but became M.I.A. half way thru dinner. Never-the-less, the food was terrific. It was a bit too chilly to sit outside by on another trip we may try it. Loved the small bar with live entertainment also. Pricey but woth it.

“Great place in the fun part of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

First and foremost, Our dinner was fantastic. The location is great and the options are scrumptious. Our server was a bit intense at first, but mellowed out once we did not buy into his up selling ways. He tried to up sell us from a $40 bottle of wine to a $90 bottle which was a bit extreme, but it doesn't hurt to try. Once he calmed down, our night was fabulous. We went there on our first and last nights of our Coronado stay.

“good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Vigilucci's was able to accommodate our very large family for a lovely meal. The service was good, and pretty fast and attentive considering the number of us (~20). Food portions were acceptable for the price range. I wasn't bowled over with the food, but I certainly would go back.
