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

I grew up in this area and Fillipo's was a family tradition. I have since lived all over the U.S. and have never found better pizza! My family will drive hours out of our way on trips just to stop here.

Would have like more variety in Italian Food. There was no Alfredo sauce options, for example. The main dish seemed to be thin crust pizza.

The best pizza in central-Illinois has been opened for 40 years and is called Filippo’s. They have three restaurant’s which are all excellent. The original is in Monticello, with locations also in Mahomet & Mt. Zion. It is an old style Italian restaurant, however you order their pizza (they also have take-out and delivery) and it is the best pizza... More

My family and I love this restaurant! They also have locations in Mahomet and Mount Zion. The family is actually Italian and they brought their recipes from Italy in the 1970s. All of them are quite friendly as well, as long as it isn't busy of course!
