This is the third Filippi's location that we have visited over the past couple of years. We were not disappointed. We originally went to the Kearny Mesa restaurant. Upon arrival we were surprised to see it is undergoing renovations. We went to the Poway location, which was an approximate 20 minute drive north.
The decor is much like the Little Italy location; the food is just as good. The service at this location is great! The portions are HUGE! No LIE! My husband and I are big eaters. We ordered a large pizza and spaghetti and meatball dinner. We ordered intending to take what was left for lunch the next day at the hotel. Well, the amount of food fed us for 2.5 additional meals! The pizza dough is so tasty, the best we have ever had. The minestrone soup reminded me of the homemade soup my grandma would make when I was young.
Every time we come to San Diego for vacation we make a point to go and eat at Filippi's. It's always a high point on our trip.
We actually like the other locations better than the Little Italy location for the simple fact that there isn't a line a mile long to get in. The parking is much easier at the other locations because they are stand alone restaurants. But we love the atmosphere and the deli that the Little Italy location has.
All in all a great experience, once again!
