The restaurant has a lot of atmosphere-Italian type- and very good food. The two of us usually split the dinner and add a salad or soup. Their spumoni ice cream is the best though not home made. Moderately priced.

This is the one of the oldest and most established Pizza/Italian restaurants in Chula Vista. It appears to have morphed into a franchise of sorts so I can't speak for there other locations. It is the only place my wife and I go for pizza. That is all.

If you feel like being ignored by a bunch of teenagers feel free to come in. So disappointed on this location. I waited at the table for 20 min waiving at waiters. Asked the hostess to send the waiter and she completely ignored me. Waited 25 min and left very very upset. Sooooo unprofessional. Humiliating.

Went with hubby and our son. The restaurant was packed and VERY loud. We waited only about 10 mins to be seated. We ordered an Italian salad, combo pizza, spaghetti with meatball. The meal starts with free bread which appeared to be kind of like sandwich rolls. The salad was ice berg lettuce with a few ingredients which was very... More

I had my 55th birthday dinner with 65 people at the patio on 10.03.14 I'm so happy with all the excellent service and food. Mr. Sergio Filippis and his staff did a great set up just for my special date. I highly recommend it ... you basically do not need to do anything...just make your reservation, bring your family and... More

The location is very nice. The restaurant looks good and has a good atmosphere. But some of the dishes are not exactly a good as other locations. The antipasto needs work. The pizza is good. I like the fact that the menu has a few more options that other locations.

The best lunches and dinner in town. Today was Minestroni soup, Philly sandwich and a small antipasto salad. Beautiful, delicious, and wonderful. They have the very best pizza's. Plenty to eat, great atmosphere, and superb service. Lots of locals here. Plenty of Fillippi's around the county, and I have been to most. Quality, quantity, and I am going there for... More

I'll keep this brief. I live in San Diego and just wanted some pasta that I didn't have to make. This place is terrible - everything about it is terrible. The pasta was completely overcooked, watery and the sauce was awful. The service was equally as bad - server couldn't have cared less whether or not she took care of... More

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
