Always the go-to place for pizza

Though I usually take out (Fit for a King, Lillian's White are the favorites), dining in is always fun. Noisy, cheerful, full of kids, the service is prompt and friendly and the food is the original Southern Italian/Sicilian pasta and red sauce.

The serving sizes are HUGE! The prices are great! The food is delicious! The restaurant could use some sprucing up but I can overlook that when everything else is so good!

We ordered a large pizza, salad, and a half order of ravioli and lasagna that was on one plate and it was plenty of food to feed all 7 of us and plenty of left overs. It was very good for our first visit. The sauce was way different than I ever tasted but in a good way. I'm used... More

I want to like Filippi's. I try to like Filippi's, but I don't like Filippi's. I ordered two entrees (one to take home for dinner). The spaghetti with meat ball was ho-hum - with lots of pasta and not that much sauce. The sauce that was there was thick - but I think it's because they just put gobs of... More

We went to have dinner and as usual the food was excellent and the service was great. I recommend everyone to eat at any of their restaurants.

Pizza is ok, my wife ordered the ravioli and they are not large and she received 4 which we were told was the normal adult serving. Really, overpriced and just ok. If you want good Italian food in East County go to Gaetano's in Lakeside.

That's it we are NEVER going back to this Filippi's location! Time after time the service is horrible. Our party of 6, 4 adults & 2 children, arrived at 5:25 tonight. We were told the wait was 10-15 minutes. After 30 minutes we went inside to check and overheard the girl at the counter getting ready to seat 8 people... More

On Monday I came with my sister and had Ravioli and the best salad dressing I have ever tasted. On Wednesday I came with my brother and had the second best Pizza and that same great salad I had on Monday. I won't pass up another visit the next time I'm in the area! Really great food across the board!

We went there with a large family group and we were impressed with the great food and service. They have a large selection of entrees and we like the idea that you could order half size portions. If you order an entree, you get bread and a very large salad. We just ordered the smaller portions, but our daughter shared... More
