Just like the Pizzarias I grew up with in NY!

I love to find family style pizza places like I always frequented as a kid. I enjoyed the old-world decor and huge, family portions of delicious salad and pizza.

Filippi's, from the front entrance, looks like an old-time Italian grocery store--because halfway into the building from the front entrance, that's exactly what it is. Go back a little further, and you'll find two small dining rooms. There is a decent wine selection, an excellent listing of pizzas and some pasta dishes, and the Cabrese salad was very well done....

Maybe I'm spoiled by having lived in Northern New Jersey but I wasn't impressed with the food. The cheesecake though was wonderful. For that, I bumped up my rating.

We started going here before there was a little Italy. It was in the middle of an industrial area. Great food, and service. Storefront and deli counter also. A Can't miss. The Torpedo sandwich is great, salads, pizza, lasagna. hard to decide it's all so good.

While this was not our favorite pizza it had a very good taste but was just too big and had too much of the ingredients of the pizza toppings. By some standards this would be perfect, but not ours. The pizza we ordered was the Filippi’s Pizza Grotto - The Works (Cheese, Sausage, Pepperoni, Mushroom, Anchovie or Onion) we chose... More

Our group had a wonderful time! We visited during the week so the wait wasn't long. Ordered more food than we could even think of devouring. Waitress was great and atmosphere perfect!

I like this one better than the others around town. You do have to stand in line but you will be by the deli and get those great smell. The food just tastes better here than at the others

We capped our San Diego day trip with a dinner at this Italian resto. Their rigatoni is good. The ambiance is really rustic and the aroma is very Italian. It was almost a full house and you see everyone happy with their food. Service is good as well. Delicioso!!!
