Stopped in for dinner with family and were surprised by the crowd for an early evening. Lots of families with small children. Noticed everyone seemed to be ordering pizza but we made the mistake of trying Veal Scaloppini. Probably the worst I've ever eaten. Veal was thickly breaded and then covered with a greasy mushroom sauce of some kind. Came... More

Long wait for food once ordered. When we complained that people seated after us were getting their food long beforeus the server wasn't interested. When the food came it was not all served together. One order of the spaghetti with meat balls and sausage when it came the sausage was cold. The arrogant owner wasn't interested when I complained. I... More

I'm going to preface this review with the fact that I do not usually eat at chains. Filippi's Pizza Grotto is been in business for over 50 years. Turns out, I had been to the original location, which opened in 1950, in San Diego many, many years ago but did not realize this was the same restaurant until we were... More

Apparently I should have got the pizza! Our friends got pizza, which was really good, but I got a salad and some garlic knots and they were just OK. The antipasto salad was supposed to have Italian dressing on it, but it had no taste (just seemed to be oil). The garlic knots were small knots are seemed to be... More

Nothing fancy, but hearty reasonably priced Italian food in an expensive area. Very friendly and good service. Good for families and large groups too.

Just happened upon Filippi's looking for a good Italian dinner. The minestrone soup was very good and the Chicken Parmesan excellent. The sauce was very tasty. Excellent dinner at a very reasonable price. Good for families.

We had just left the Oxbow market looking for a place to eat and although it looks like every small town pizza joint (and really not much like a grotto!), the smells emanating from the place lured us in. My wife and I consider ourselves pizza aficionados so we told them ahead of time be prepared to be judged. We... More

Just had dinner over at the Napa location. We ordered spaghetti with meatballs, ravioli and Lasagna. Food was fantastic and service was exceptional too. Price is so reasonable with huge portions. Entrees run about $9 and up, served with warm bread, soup or salad depending on what you order. We definitely look forward to a return visit the next time... More

Came here based on the reviews and was glad I did. Had the spaghetti with sausage and meatballs and it was very good with huge servings. One order can feed at least 2 people! The bread was also nice and fresh. Spaghetti dinner and a drink will run you $16.50...so not bad for a dinner out in Napa.
