The atmosphere is unique and sophisticated. Outside dining on a second story deck above the fray and bright airy dining rooms inside. The salad with pear was not special. The pasta with mushrooms and scallops was amazing as was the squash stuffed pasta. Jacqueline, our server, was very polished and friendly. Looking forward to dining here in the future.

We had a most pleasant dinner experience here while staying on Coronado Island. Attractive restaurant with a nice vibe. We sat upstairs on a lovely patio. Although there was a chill in the air, they had outdoor heaters so we were very comfy. It was nice to listen to the person singing and playing the piano. Our server was pleasant... More

Coming from London on a 4 day conference visit, I assumed Coronado area of San Diego would be a rich vein of high class restaurants. Not really. For a smart business dinner you have to chose carefully and Vigilucci's is about all on offer. The menu is long and varied. Typically New York Italian where everything is recommended but you...

While on vacation in Coronado we were looking for a nice, affordable Sunday brunch and discovered this restaurant. Wonderful omelettes and attentive wait staff in a beautiful location.

Excellent homemade authentic Italian food. The noodles are delicious because they are clearly made from scratch. Amazing desserts as well.

This place caters to the well heeled of Coronado. The food was excellent and simple dish like spaghetti with meatballs were well made fresh tasting and filling. It's not cheap but then quality is high

We celebrated our friend's 60th birthday at Vigilucci's and sat at their outside patio area. We enjoyed the gnocchi, Cappellacci Zucca and Trenette Genovese...all of these dishes were very good as were the salads (cesare and alla vigilucci). Our waiter was fun but not intrusive. We would all recommend Vigilucci's...reservations are a must during the busy season (which is most... More

We had a corporate dinner at Vigilucci's while at a conference in San Diego. It's a very nice restaurant and our waiter was excellent. He was very helpful, had a great personality and he was from Italy. There was a piano player at the restaurant that evening who was very good, and we sang along to several of his songs.... More

Vigilucci's is located on Orange Avenue next to the famous Hotel del Coronado. Dine with us in our "Oceano" room while viewing the magnificent Pacific Ocean or enjoy our "Murano" room overlooking Orange Avenue (named for the Murano glass chandeliers that decorate the room) while feasting on our authentic Italian ingredient laden entrees. In addition Vigilucci's has a full bar and happy hour is offered Monday through Friday from three to seven pm and Saturday & Sunday from eleven am to five pm. Masculine wood lines the custom made granite bar and lounge, where nightly tunes of the "Rat Pack" can be heard live on our baby grand piano. The "Oceano" room is open for dining or may be booked for parties up to 90 people. When dining in Coronado visit Vigilucci's Ristorante for an authentic Italian experience. -Buon Appetito!
