Our server even surprised us with a complimentary dessert when he found out it was our first visit to the area and their establishment. Would definately return.

This small Italian restaurant does a brisk carry out business and has a decent amount of seating for dining in. Portions were generous. Veal Parmigiana doesn't appear on many menus, and they do it well here, so be sure to order. Pizzas are good and cheesy. Salad bar was very 'blah', but that is really the only low point.

Awesome food as always, friendly atmosphere, good service, reasonable prices. An iconic destination and if you have never experienced it and you're just visiting the area, it's a place you have to experience.

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.

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.
