A very good Italian restaurant. A little “cheesy” with the hundreds of empty hanging Chianti bottles from the ceiling. There is an authentic Italian deli as you walk in, which brought me back to Joe’s Italian Food World in North Babylon long ago. The whole...More

When getting ready to visit San Deigo we asked a friend where to eat. He said Filippi's and we are glad we did. Had the best mushroom and sausage pizza ever.

Wow, we stopped here to take a pizza back to our room . . . It was the best pizza that I have ever had! The pizza had the perfect amount of toppings including the cheese. I highly recommend this restaurant if you love pizza.

We really love Filippi's! The food is great, service is good, and it's right down in the Italian District. You can't go wrong with anything here. Will I go back...yes, again and again!

Every local in town recommended this place to us. It’s real authentic, home-style Italian. There’s no pretense here - big plate of spaghetti, huge pizzas with simple toppings. All very yummy. Super affordable too. Filippi’s is half the price of other restaurants in Little Italy...More
