Vigilucci's Ristorante Coronado Ratings and Reviews

I have dined at this location prior and had an overall good experience. But this time the kitchen was very slow (50minutes to get food) the food was served cold and the overall service lacked organization. I found myself looking over my shoulder constantly for service. The restaurants answer was free desert. Offering a high margin food for free filled with diary that I can not eat goes means nothing. Please do better next time. -BB

We were delighted with our dinner at Vigilucci's! There were four of us and each of us had a different entree. Two of us had veal dishes-veal piccata and Saltimbocca veal, one person had spaghetti Portofino and another had chicken Parmagiana. They were all well prepared and with generous portions. The service was professional. We all plan to return soon.
They also have a great Happy Hour in the bar which is always well attended.

A bit disappointing. I had a wonderful Caesar salad but very disappointing pasta bolognese. It was a stuck clump of pasta that was hardly edible. The salad was nice though. Olive oil is very bland. Extra virgin olive oil would be a nice improvement. I would skip coming here...

We were terribly disappointed in the food at this restaurant. As a family that has a fairly high knowledge of Italian cuisine, we all agreed that the restaurant was pretty and the service was perfect, but the food itself was definitely not up the prices that were charged. We are willing to pay well for food that is worth the price; the issue was that we expected excellent food, especially considering that the restaurant is in a prime location with lovely decor and an established menu, yet our food was mediocre at best. Not one of us would have returned the food as it was palatable, however there was not one dish on the table that was beyond passable, and certainly not one that any of us would consider high-end food. The hostess and servers were all very warm and professional, but we would not likely visit again based on the meal itself.

The food was very good. I have been to the Vigilucci's in Encinitas which I liked better due to the fact that they have a pizza oven. Coronado setting is a lot more attractive. The food quality in both restaurants is excellent. Best Italian food we have had in SoCal.

Lovely restaurant. We always enjoy our meal there. One minor complaint - the patio tables are too small for the size of the dinner plates, especially with a party of 4 - or the plates are too large for the tables. Otherwise, a charming dinner venue.

Very friendly server, who seemed experienced, and was knowledgeable, but she had too many tables to be efficient. Room was warm, crowded--Pre-theater?. We had to ask twice for water. I ordered a Manhattan, which arrived almost warm. I would have sent it back but for the time constraint to get to the theater on time. Artichoke appetizer arrived slopping off the platter--not a good presentation.

The food was absolutely delicious! We even brought some home . The bussers were very attentive . The. Creme Brûlée for dessert was the best I have ever had.Our server ,Brian was very cordial . Getting into the restaurant with someone in awheelchair is not the easiest . We had to pay $20.00 for parking as the restaurant does not validate !! The host could use training on customer service and not calling everyone "guys" regardless of gender of patrons. That is my biggest pet peeve at restaurants is how I am addressed!

Food was mediocre. Location was primary consideration as we attended
a theatre close by after having dinner. In all fairness our entrees were
rather small and fell into the catergory of Saladas but they weren't

Loved our dinner last night! We dined on the patio and it was quiet and just a lovely vibe. Food selection was large and so many I wanted to try. I had the catch of the day and it was perfecto! Others in my party ordered lasagna and LOVED it...it's a large portion, suggest splitting if you order appetizers or a salad. We will be back again next year when our conference is in town!

The meal was very well prepared. Restaurant is comfortable with nice ambience. Only odd part was our waiter who started out very attentive disappeared around 8:45 pm, in fact all the waiters left the floor. When we finally connected with him he said that his manager had called a meeting and he apologized profusely. All in all I would go back again as if is well located and the food was very good.

This was a nice, quiet restaurant for us. Very good service. The Caesar salad was excellent, my husband's chicken milanese was also very good. Unfortunately, my expensive half-lobster, mussels, clams on pasta dish was incredibly tasteless. The waitress recommended it ( of course ) but the lobster might have been frozen or...who knows. The watery sauce on everything, also tasteless. I should have sent it back but was otherwise enjoying myself so didn't. Always disappointing to pay dearly for a dish that is low quality.

Everything was great. Our waitress was great. The only bad part was the host/hostess which were very rude and the fact that our food came out way to quickly. It's supposed to be an exspensive resturaunt for fine dinning and in fine dinning you are not supposed to rush when the entire time the food came out to quickly and it felt like they were simply trying to flip the table as soon as possible.

While the food, (4 pasta dishes) was really good, the bottle of red wine we ordered was quite warm (don't know where they were storing it). For a restaurant of this quality, this is inexcusable. The waiter had to bring an ice bucket to bring it to a serviceable temperature. Also, as an appetizer we ordered marinated artichoke hearts for $17, and received only 3. There were 4 of us and they should have served 4 artichoke hearts for that price, or, at least the waiter should have told us there would only be 3 when we ordered it.
Also, the service was quite slow.

The food did not meet our expectations. We have eaten at Vigilucci's many times in the past. The service was slower than expected and we had to ask our server what the delay was about.The pasta included with our meals was not well prepared and was "chewy" when it should have been softer.

I had the chicken Marsala, while the sauce was very good, the Chicken breast was tough and dry and the pasta was not cooked nearly enough. The grilled veggies were the highlight of the plate. On the other hand my husband loved his chicken that was served over a sausage hash. The restaurant is very nice and the waiters, host,hostess were all very attentive and friendly.

We had a truly lovely email. The seafood was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious . Get the cold seafood platter! It is quite pricey but it is absolutely enormous and one of the best food items we've had to eat, ever !

The pianist was amazing, he took our requests and sang/played beautifully. Great at reading the room. The food was excellent and portions were perfect, service was fast, plus, they are very accommodating with dogs. Couldn't recommend this restaurant more.

The pianist/singer was incredible and sang many of our favorite standards. Combined with the quaint patio lights, it made for perfect date night atmosphere. The prices have gotten a bit out of control here, though, and the food - both quality and preparation - has gone down at the same time. My major caution to this place is to not become another Coronado tourist trap-type restaurant that hikes prices while lowering entree quality... Our waitress was very knowledgeable and professional.
