One of my favorite dinner option in Carlsbad. We had a business dinner and wanted a relax atmosphere. This is definitely great view, food and service to ensure a good time. Could be a little loud for business dinner, but everything else worth it.

Had a particularly poor experience on Saturday night. The server was a little arrogant initially. This was followed by his embarrassment that our meal took 2 1/2 hours. Oh and the fact that the gluten free pasta wasn't. There was something happening (or really not...More

Vigilucci's Seafood and Steakhouse provides an intimate seaside dining experience unlike any other in San Diego County. Five-star dining in a beautiful setting with perfect sunset views of the Pacific Ocean. Patio dining is on the street so there can be some noise but the...More

Went here thinking I was going to get steak or seafood but decided to go with the lasagna. OMG, i could not have made a better choice. Incredible!!! Not to mention that the location is beautiful and our waitress, Daniella, was great.

We got lucky and stumbled into this place on a warm Sunday afternoon drive along the coast. All the Beach communities were packed and parking nearly impossible. Vigilucci’s had a beautiful corner location overlooking the ocean and valet parking, bingo, let’s eat! Our intention was...More

I'm not sure. I think the best thing to do is to call them and ask about their usual holiday hours. I'm sure they do the same thing year after year- so that is something they'd know the answer to
