Food is good, prices are extremely reasonable. Restaurant is unique, has good decorations. Service was alright, however they were extremely busy so that is acceptable.

This Italian restaurant is decent and very good. Been here a couple of times with the family. All salads are good and fresh, cheesy Pizza are very very good, pasta dishes are above average. Portions sizes are great. A large Cesar Salad, can feed 5~6. The place may be some what decor outdated, but makes you feel in a family... More

Filippi's Pizza is always perfect! It's truly the only pizza we'll eat, order out & take out. We get a variety of pizza toppings each time so it's a surprise with every order!

This is the best italian food in Chula Vista. Great cheesy pizzas, wonderful pastas, great portions and a family friendly atmosphere. Was here during an earthquaque a few years ago and the staff was very professional leading the customers out of the establishment in an efficient and safe manner. Try the huge meatballs and their delicious spaghetti. Free refills on... More

Slow service, lack luster appearance and less tasty than expected -- that's what our family members said on leaving. The Filippi's restaurants are operated by different members of the family and you will LOVE the ones in Little Italy, Jamul, or Imperial Beach, but dodge this one. It's a dud!

We liked the busy local family atmosphere and the friendly service. The food we ordered was not great. We had a small salad which was a huge bowl of iceberg lettuce and a very greasy pasta primavera.

Came here with my son for dinner. I like to support local businesses and they're in our neighborhood. We were seated right away at 6:50 pm- seemed like there were a lot of open tables although they seated us next to the kitchen with lots of noise and foot traffic. The caesar salad was watery to me. The pizza just... More

Have been here at dinner and lunch. The sandwiches are good and the pizza is really good too. The veggie pizza with fresh garlic and olive oil was phenomenal. Really good food and friendly staff.
