My wife and I had the privilege of dining here with my client for a business dinner meeting. The atmosphere was great, the ocean view, and especially the food, drinks, and service. I will be back again on my next business trip.

My first visit and very memorable! The atmosphere was soothing and wonderful piano music. Enjoyed a very large slice of lasagna. Definitely will come back with more friends.

The food was Primo. Waiter, Andrea, was attentive, but not clingy. There was a loud table nearby so the din was more than we liked to enable conversation, but overall, a great spot. Came highly recommended and did not miss the mark!!

I can not say enough about the quality of the food and service. Raviolis chosen by my wife were to die for and the scallops were the best I have ever had. However, I must reflect that I was stunned by the price points for all entries. Each was inflated and in some cases significantly over the normally high prices.... More

Thanksgiving Day dinner at a restaurant can be a rushed event, along with possibly inferior meals. But our experience at Vigilucci's was quite the opposite! Beautiful atmosphere, and delicious food!

My wife and I have been to three different Vigolucci'a. All three are consistently excellent. The food is delicious, hot, and served promptly. They seem to have an unending supply of native Italian waiters. We were most recently ay the Coronado location, and were very pleased. Vigilucci's is our go-to location for upscale Italian food.

The lightest, crispy, tender calimare i have had anywhere. The jumbo prawns, the filet, all perfectly prepared. If you want a great restaurant with wonderful menu, this is for you.
