"Saturday evening very crowded but all the staff were happy and smiling. The couple in front of us in line claimed they had a reservation but none could be found. The manager was so gracious even though the couple was rather rude and found them a table. We had a reservation and we were seated at a great window table. The Food and Service were great. The whole atmosphere was so appealing very enjoyable experience."

"The food and service were excellent and was even better than I expected. My only issue is that their four-top tables are really small and difficult to maneuver with 4 people, 2 bottles of wine and glasses plus water glasses and a tray of bread."

"Found this gem on the San Diego Restaurant Week site. The food was absolutely delicious. My husband and I both started with the artichoke hearts. Tender and savory. We both enjoyed our entrees (filet and fresh pasta with mushrooms and shrimp in truffle oil) and managed to squeak in a few bites of dessert. If we lived in the Oceanside area, this would be a go-to place for us. Service was perfect, too."

"I really enjoyed my dinner here. I've never had the pleasure of going to Italy, but this feels like real, old-school Italian food. I had the tagliatelle with scallops, mushrooms, and a yummy truffle brandy cream sauce. My husband had the carbonara. It was all super yummy"

"A wonderful night scene and atmosphere with friendly wait staff and exceptionally good Italian selections. My Saltimbocca was some of the best I've ever had anywhere. A bit noisy in the bar area, but that's what we requested and enjoyed. We'll be back frequently."

"Vigulucci's has always been a favorite for me and my girlfriend. Nice fresh pasta and Gluten Free option as well. This is a nice little Italian restaurant in Carlsbad village. I would highly recommend to any friend or family. Staff is very nice and they also have daily specials."

"I was given a $200.00 gift certificate for Christmas so I took my friends to dinner. I was very disappointed. I would not recommend this restaurant."

"as a vegetarian, it is not easy to manage in all restaurants, but if there are one or two items i can order- i am content. i had the open fire roasted vegetables with polenta. yummy. my husband had the eggplant parmigiana and really liked it.
our waiter was less delightful. no idea if this is his normal demeanor or we got the "special" that night. he poured the wine into the glass and continued pouring it as he was leaving the table, looking the other way. it sprayed on the table cloth and open menu. he did not even look to see. our plates arrived 45 minutes after ordering- he came once during that time to "explain". his tip was accordingly.

"Food was creative and fresh. Tables were tiny and the waiters were not on top of clearing dishes. At one point, I put a plate on an adjacent table because the only other place would have been the floor."
