Based on other reviews, we went to Filippis for lunch. Greeted by a friendly server (Priscilla). We ordered a large cheese pizza, which we usually can put away with no problem. When the pizza came, I looked at my husband and said "don't think I'll be able to do this...." Their large is 16". Usually not a problem since we... More

We go there several times a month. The food is great. Huge portions. My wife and I split a half order of pasta and a salad and still take food home. Very reasonable priced. The best pizza and pasta around.

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.

Spaghetti always tender, biggest meatballs for any Italian Restaurant in the County ( All Filippi's) We love Peggy Sue for a waitress, Priscella does a great job as the GM. Bobby D runs a great place, miss seeing him in here as... More

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.
