This restaurant was highly recommended to us and it did not disappoint. They were very accommodating and split the best ceasar salad ever. I loved the gnocchi and the wine list was very good also.

The view across the 101 is breathtaking! The bar area is welcoming. The martini serving is generous. The entrees are delicious and well... More

They seated us without a reservation, very nice table inside but near the window. We had 3 kids with us and we all had a terrific meal. Service was very nice, the food came out in a timely manner and it was very tasty.

We always have dinner here when visiting Carlsbad and are never disappointed. The food is delicious, the service impeccable, and our family loves this place. Located on state street with indoor and outdoor dining. Great place to sit outside and people watch while enjoying wine and appetizers, especially on Weds. as the Farmer's Market is happening.

We had a fabulous meal at Vigilucci's. We had veal parmigiana and spaghetti and meatballs. Both excellent. Finished with cream brûlée for dessert. Service was efficient and friendly.

We made reservations here for a 7 pm dinner, but came early and was able to be immediately seated. We sat inside, and it was such low lighting that it was hard to read the menu. We had bread service which was great. We had 1 bruschetta each and it was really good. I had the diver scallops, which were... More

Very friendly and a good table, right on the street. Watch the activity of the area or sit inside for a more private and quiet dinner. Food was very good

Delicious food and great service every time! Fresh home made pasta, great sauce options and a good wine list. Good for an intimate dinner for two or a special family meal. We've come here two Christmas Eve' s in a row and never disappointed. Great location in the village so you can take a stroll and burn off some of... More
