It's rare to find cioppino under $20 but $17 is ridiculous. I make it a point to come to Filippo's on special occasions to roll my eyeballs with every delicious mouthful of their shellfish stew and thank god I'm alive! The price makes it all the better. Long live Filippo's!

Great food, good location for park the car too. Dogs are welcome and they have offered straight away water for our 2 dogs. Food well presented, price is resealable

This neighborhood restaurant provides consistently good service, decent wine, delightful pasta dishes (including gluten-free ones), fresh salads, and interesting polenta and risotto options. It has about a dozen tables of outdoor seating from which you can people and dog watch. It's a great place for lunch or dinner and to visit with friends.

I really wish I loved this place, as I live in the neighborhood and find it's tiny size and charming ambiance very appealing. I have gone about 4-5 times over the past two years, and each time have come away thinking the food was so-so. Almost everyone I ask who also lives in the neighborhood also finds the food lacking,...

On a visit to our son in Oakland, our party of six tried Filippo's 2nd location on College Avenue. We were glad we did. Each of us was very happy with our entree, and we all chose different things, so I won't recommend one over another. This is a tiny place, holding maybe 20 at best inside, but there was... More
