Maretalia Making Changes, Closed for Regular Dining

Maretalia-LogoCoronado’s modern coastal Italian restaurant Maretalia, part of the Blue Bridge Hospitality Group (BBH), has stopped service for regular dinner and weekend brunch options. David Spatafore, owner of BBH, announced that “Due to the current economic conditions in Coronado, the ‘slow season,’ and our own desire to re-evaluate Maretalia as a restaurant, we are not currently open for weekend brunch or dinner operations. We are focused on private events, pre-booked functions, catering, and daytime meetings in the restaurant space. Most of our incredible staff will be relocated to other Blue Bridge Hospitality locations and be working booked events!”

BBH purchased the restaurant, at the time known as Vigilucci’s, in the spring of 2017 and opened as Maretalia that summer. The restaurant was remodeled in 2018 and showed off a revamped floor plan, updated bar and menu, Oyster Bar and Pasta Room later that year. A recent foodie event held at Maretalia was billed as “the summertime hustle winding down on the island of Coronado, Maretalia is looking to keep the party going with their first annual OysterFest.”
