Filippo's is a great place to get authentic Italian in central Illinois. The pasta is delicious and many people I know swear the pizza is the best they've ever had. The restaurant itself is not much to look at, so don't let that scare you away.

Fillipos has been in business for 40 plus years because they have delicious pizza! The lasagna is great also! Tip: if you like bacon on your pizza, specify you want "crispy bacon" when ordering. Otherwise it sometimes comes out undercooked. Tip2: They are closed Mondays. But, you can pick the pizza up uncooked and cook it whenever you like, even... More

Used to eat here a lot. I can't see what everyone likes about their pizza. Monicals is by far much better. Fillippo's sauce is blah. I have given it several chances but just don't like it. They have other items on menu that might be good and will give them a try sometime.

A must stop every time I go back to Illinois. Great pizza and meatballs. Perfect cheap place to take your family.

I was so very impressed to be told that they have a gluten free crust... This is the best gluten free crust pizza I have had so far. Probably tried about half a dozen. Wish I could have brought some back to Nebraska with me because haven't found a good one here.

Filippos has been a Monticello staple for many years. Second generation in there but still doing it the original Filippos way. Folks from all over central Illinois swear by their pizza, my daughter who lives in Chicago, always gets pizza from here when she visits. The sauce is not your typical pizza sauce. All the other food is very good.... More

Grew up eating here every weekend. It's clean comfortable and the food is the best. A great family running it that make you feel like one of their own.

Between Champaign and Decatur lies Monticello. In that 50 mile stretch there is no better place to go for dinner than Filippo's Pizza. Owned and operated by an honest to goodness Italian family, the tradition of family eats is strong here. They have handmade sauce and meatballs that are fantastic. Pizza is amazing. I recommend getting the thick crust, with... More

Let me begin by saying that my husband is from this area and INSISTS on eating here whenever we are in town. He LOVES their pizza. It is the pizza that he compares all others to. That being said, I am not a fan of their pizza. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because he likes it... More

My wife and I went to Monticello, Illinois for a soccer tournament. We had lunch at Filippos. Everything from the waiter to the food was outstanding. My wife had a half order of spagetti and I had a full order with meatballs. Great sauce/Great Service. I noticed the waiter was very particular about his job. When he cleaned an adjoining... More
