Good quality pizza

My husband and I disagreed on this one, but I thought it was good, but not great. We got a large meat lovers pizza, it had pepperoni, sausage Canadian bacon and meatballs. It had a perfect amount of cheese, the crust was kind of thick, but the dough stood up to the cheese and toppings. It was very... read more

It cost $18.50 for a medium pizza. The crust was about three times too thick. The taste was decent but would have been much better had it not been so doughy. Pizza Hut would have been a better option and eight dollars cheaper.

They have great lasagna and eggplant parmesan. We also like their dinner salad and breads. The pizzas have a LOT of cheese! They have a good variety of food, so there is something for everyone.

This is an excellent Italian Restaurant great pizza & Lasagna excellent wine selection, this is an old restaurant in Chula Vista at Broadway, a new filippi's just opened at Eastlake Chula Vista but have no tried that one yet, prices are little bit higher than average but for the quality of food is worth it

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.
