Vigilucci's Cucina Italiana
Nestled in the heart of downtown Carlsbad, Vigilucci's Cucina Italiana is the perfect spot for a quiet night out, with fabulous food and award-winning service. Enjoy an affordable lunch on our outdoor patio or start the evening off at our full-service bar then enjoy a classic Italian dinner and a great bottle of wine. Our daily happy hour is a favorite among locals. A great place for a romantic dinner, a family gathering, a company party or special event.
Every time is a reminder of how great this restaurant is. Service is great, decent wine selection, food is exquisite, especially their Lobster Ravioli, and last but not least, dessert, which is always a hit. I highly recommend Vigilucci's Trattoria.
Made a reservation for 7 pm for dinner with a special guest. When we got there, maybe 15 people were not seated, and so we waited about fifteen minutes. Everyone but us got seated. Then we were told that our table had been given to someone else. Waitress asked us to wait, until the people who were just seated were done. We would have had to wait in the lounge with a loud crowd of half drunk barflies. We left and went somewhere else for dinner. Will never go back.
My family's favorite italian restaurant. The Pollo Marsala is pretty much our absolute favorite. My sister-in-law who is really picky about her food, LOVED this place! I couldn't believe it, she ate everything off her plate. She almost always picks things off her plate. It's simply authentic and satisfying, the wait staff doesn't hover over you, and I think they make their own fresh pasta! It's pretty much been our only Italian restaurant destination.
My husband and I had dinner at the location in Carlsbad and loved it! The service, ambience, food and drink were all superb. We started with cocktails during happy hour and then had dinner on the patio facing the beach...our server was wonderful and the fresh pasta dish I had was excellent as was the fresh fish salad we ordered as an antipasti..my husband had a filet mignon wrapped in prosciutto on a bed of arugala with potatoes and 2 giant prawns.We had a great bottle of wine and topped it all off with the creme brulee and lemoncello-it was a wonderful evening and we can't wait to go back!
My wife and I went out for my birthday and had very unprofessional service. The hostess did not record our name, we waited nearly an hour after being told by the manager we would be seated in minutes. According to my wife - she has had similar experience at this restaurant. I will never take my family there again.
so i have had excellent italian food, this restaurant does not serve good italian period.italian food is my favorite. the place is pretty classy, but when i want to eat all i care about is food and i have expectations.
Great food, horrible service that is unless you are with a large party only then will the servers pay attention to you. Even buying $100 bottles of wine will not get the server to come back to your table to check on you or offer more wine. Probably due to we were only a party of two paying $250 for dinner and the same server also had a table of 15. Not the best set up with the servers. Second time that has happened to us....Again good food, horrible service....Price is steep but it is what it is in Carlsbad......
Staying in Carlsbad for business, nightly I check online and word of mouth for recommendations where to eat.
After glancing through the reviews here I decided Italian sounded good, so I stopped by Vigilucci's.
The greeting was excellent, service top notch, and the food was great enough to make me want to come back again to try more from the menu.
Definately would recommend to anyone passing through the Carlsbad area
