We went with about 20 people for a late lunch. The service was good - they accommodated our large party with a smile and quick service. The food portions are large, even on the lunch menu. Food was very tasty. The lasagne was made with with thick noodles, very meaty sauce, and a lot of cheese.

I hesitate to write this review. Filippi's is already a popular restaurant in East County, and I'm fearful that I will be letting too many people in on our great spot! One small piece of advice. If you normally order extra cheese on your pizza, don't do it here. It must come with 2 lbs already. All the toppings are... More

their food is OK - good but it's impossible to carry on a normal conversation amidst the cacophony around you. Prices are reasonable so I would suggest using their carry-out service.

Had the Italian sandwich for lunch. Around six dollars. Delish! The bread was so fresh and toasted. I was in and out in twenty minutes ( I was in a rush). Pizza here is pretty great too.

This restaurant was more than willing to accommodate our group of almost 50. Service was good, but food left a lot to be desired. Has that institutionalized taste. Not much flavor or seasoning. This place makes Olive Garden look like high end dining. Pizza toppings are hidden under mounds of cheese. Potions are huge, so order on the small size.

If you have to go down to Santee, CA (San Diego area), Filippi's Italian restaurant is right across from the Best Western and is a safe bet for a family dinner or lunch. Be prepared to stand in line for a little bit, All Filippi's restaurants have a wait time, but they do make the biggest meatballs in town!
