Whilst staying in San Diego it was my job to find an Italian restaurant. And Filippis did not disappoint. I loved the atmosphere, decor and food. Our server explained the menu and made recommendations. My pasta was amazing!! We loved it so much that we told some friends about it and they came the following week. A truly great find.

We loved the setting, service, food and prices. The restaurant was behind the deli/store and it was like going to Italy. You won't be disappointed.

Go here for pizza. It is good and cheap, and they have parking! Great atmosphere too. We ate at another place across the street one night are regretted it; we wished we would have came back here.

The line was out the door of this charming grocery store. It looked like it would be a long wait, but actually took only 15 minutes. While in line we got to peruse many of the real Italian food staples- beautiful bottles of olive oil, hand made pastas, salami, pepperoni, cheese and olives. A big dining room bustling with activity... More

My buddy and I had the classic pizza along with the delicious garlic bread. The pizza was served Ina. Timely manner. Once we began to dive into the pizza we realized we were biting into a piece of heaven.
