Busy place so I decided on takeout back to ocean-front rental. That beat the hectic atmosphere of the restaurant...a bit of a madhouse, servers bumping into each other, people waiting for over an hour to be seated and very loud. The food was spectacular. I...More

WE were taken to lunch here by family in the area. Wonderful choice with so many terrific options on the lunch menu- something for everyone and we all walked away very satisfied. Service impeccable and the noise level was not an issue.

This place is seriously Italian. From the live pianist to the art to the homemade pasta and the extensive wine list. A little taste of North east or Italy in so cal.

Anyone who knows me, knows I love ALL of the Vigilucci Restaurants. My favorite is clearly the Cucina on State Street in Carlsbad. This location is fabulous as well... it just does not have the family feel the Cucina has. The Trattoria has a very...More

We have been going to Vigilucci's for many many years. Always have a great meal fairly priced. The Leucadia location is our favorite with the piano bar. Best Italian restaurant in No County.
