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 sau ...
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.
Our Server may have been new but he was ...
Our Server may have been new but he was terrible. Two of us had drinks, the two other who arrived a bit later were not offered drinks. He disappeared for a long while before coming to take our order. When we were finished eating, he proceeded to take every last item off of the table as we were talking not just large plates etc. I had to tell him to stop. And last but not least, he mixed up our doggy bags which was not discovered until we each got to our respective homes.

On vacation in Coronado and looked inviting. Did not disappoint. The veal chop was enormous, but delicious. My husband had the mushroom pasta dish and that was decadent. Our boys - ages 10&12 can be picky eaters, but they had great choices for them. I would not recommend for young kids, though. Service was fantastic!

You will not be disappointed in the service, food and ambiance at Vigilucci's on Coronado Island. The patio seating was so pleasant, with umbrellas, beautiful table service, and excellent service. On top of that, the food is always delicious.
Dining in Coronado
We chose Vigilucci's based off of Yelp and Open Table reviews. Everything was great! Initially, we were seated inside and it was a little loud and I didn't love the atmosphere. On the way to the table, we passed the patio so I asked if we could have the open table for two and to my delight, they did accommodate our request. The patio was perfect. Our server was great! Great personality. Perfect service, phenomenal food, and great wine. The wine prices did not seem too crazy either. I had a seafood pasta, which I typically do not like, but that is what was recommended by the waiter and my fiancé. It was probably the first seafood pasta I have really ever enjoyed. He had the lasagna, which was awesome. we had some ahi tuna tartare to start which was the perfect starter for us. I'm not that easy to impress, so props to Vivilucci's!
The food here is always spectacular. My daughter had the house special halibut and said it was the best meal she has ever had. My wife enjoyed the wine and I always get the spaghetti and meat balls because they are very good. This restaurant is our go to Italian restaurant.
Eating Here Twice While I'm in Coronado
The food and service here was so good, we are making a point of going back once more before we leave. The three of us were very pleased with our selections and our service. Best ciaopino (sp) I have had in many years. Bolognese was terrific as well. Also, they have a wonderful spumoni cake to share for your dessert. Massimo took expert care of us. You can't go wrong here.
