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.

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

The pizza is always hot and delicious. The crust is good but thick, so it's best to eat fresh and not reheat. The lasagna and spaghetti are good, but nothing special. Stick with the pizza!

Overall, the food is very delicious, service is fast and friendly and the portions are large. You will get your monies worth for sure. Atmosphere is Italian and casual. We've been to almost all the Filippi's locations. Each one is different. Our favorite will always be the original one in Little Italy, San Diego.

New to the Santee location although I 've eaten at the India street store on many occasions. Had the vegetarian pizza and it was excellent. Just came back from a visit to Naples, the home of pizza, and Filippi's is right up there in my opinion.

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

Never been disappointed with either eating the pizza or pasta, more than enough for one person or even two..
