I will have vongole spaghetti every time.
I think that you changed a type of spaghetti.
It was a type of fat and roll.
Although it is my individual opinion, it is not good combination between spaghetti and sauce.
I like previous old type spaghetti.

Outstanding!!!!!!! Been in the hospitality industry for over 30 years and I can honestly say one of the best fine dinning experiences we have had. My girlfriend is still raving about it. From the impeccable service by Glenn to the graciousness of the manager Bruce. We live in Palm Springs and don't get to Carlsbad often but we now cant wait to return. Glenn recommended a fantastic bottle of Caymus meritage at only $45.00 dollars . The place was packed but the timing and pace of the service was spot on. Melt in your mouth Osso bucco and delicious seafood pasta . Thanks Vigilucci's , can't wait to see you again.

On coast highway in Carlsbad so an enjoyable location for outdoor dining when weather is nice.
Did not find the food or service to be particularly memorable, as in no real reason to return. Kind of spendy for what they serve and then you get dinged $4 to park. Did not care for the musak playing over speakers. With the ocean setting, no need for irritating soundtrack.
Was very disappointed in the service the ...
Was very disappointed in the service they where way overbooked and not enough wait staff on for the night .we had a reservation for 6:45 and where not seated until 7:30 if I wanted a 7:30 reservation I would of made it for that time .The service at the bar was just as bad they must of walked by me several times with out even a smile so finally I had to ask if I could get a glass of wine finally I got one and he left me standing there with out taking my money I had to ask another waiter if I could pay he said he did not leave u a bill the food was great but they should not over book so many people and have more staff on hand

This restaurant has good food and excellent service. The view of the ocean is decent, but it is across a busy highway. Seeing since they serve seafood here, they also pack you in like sardines, ask for a booth, so that you do not have to fight for space with the tables surrounding you.
It is VERY loud in here, so if you are looking for a quiet "romantic" dinner, this may miss the mark.

Veal chop was one of the best I've probably ever and I've eaten many veal chops at high end steak houses. I would definitely recommend it. Only negative about the evening was it was unusually warm that day in Carlsbad and would have been more comfortable dining indoor with the AC on instead of sweating it out with the folks on the patio. I get the open air thing but not when it's 86 degrees at the coast.

Excellent food and service. Beautiful view. My girlfriend and I ordered two pasta dishes because they were the most affordable on a very expensive menu. They were prepared well. We enjoyed our dinner but feel the pricing was more suited for a ritzy hotel than Carlsbad by the beach.

The view of the Sunset over the Pacific Ocean was outstanding! The food and service were excellent. The noise level was horrendous!!! It is located right on the Pacific Coast Highway and the Cruisers and their Vehicles was deafening! As a result everyone else was practically yelling. It was very difficult to hear the Server as well as my husband who was sitting right beside me. The tables were also placed very close together. It definitely destroyed any ambiance the restaurant had.

Prices at restaurant higher than the on-line menu from their website (reviewed same day). Seated outside in hot sun (no other tables available). Asked about getting some shade and was told that there was nothing they could do. The new sun shades wouldn't cover and there were no other tables.
2 hours baking in the hot sun.
Food was OK, but pricey.

Nice outdoor dining terrace across the street from the ocean, with pleasant breezes but also with some annoying traffic noise. The food and service were passable. The pasta dishes seemed to work best. Chicken marsala was subpar. Grilled veggies were disappointing, both a little undercooked and a bit too bland. Despite its shortcomings, this is still an appealing spot for lunch, particularly if you're in the mood for pasta.

Absolutely loved our meal and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Since eating dinner there on Monday night, we have already been to a second location in the village and bought dinner through the market on Wednesday

This was the best find during our trip to Carlsbad. The dinner was for our son's birthday and we weren't disappointed. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. The scenery was wonderful - get the outdoor seating, you won't be disappointed! We recommended to our friends who also live in the area and they said they'd definitely eat there also. We'd definitely go back when we're in the area.

My wife and I went here for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was our first experience at the restaurant and I was happy to see Vigilucci's accommodated the table location request I had put in my reservation note. We ordered the sea bass and the shrimp risotto that were the specials for the night. They were very good but not amazing. What blew us away were the oysters and crab cakes we enjoyed as appetizers, and the very attentive, personable and gracious service. Even though the restaurant was very busy, we felt like their timing for everything was perfect. A great spot to experience great people and great food in the midst of beach life.

The food was the star as the service was lacking. Waiter was friendly but often disappeared for a long while. With an early reservation this seemed odd. Also did not know specials before coming to the table nor soup of the day. When we flagged another waiter down at one point, he begrudgingly assisted but you knew never to ask him for help again. BUT the food, was superb.

Wonderful authentic Italian restaurant. Relaxed but classy atmosphere. View and food is to die for and service is top notch. Our server Andrea was very friendly and attentive. Truly looking forward to dining there again. It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end.
