I just love this place. The food is amazing and the portions are definitely enough to have some left to take home without emptying your wallet. The restaurant will make you feel like you're in Italy. This place will make you come back again and again. Whenever I'm in San Diego I make sure I make my family meets here... More

We ordered a Special Dinner which is ment to feed 2, a large pizza and an antipasto salad. We actually fed 14 people and brought leftover pizza. Servers are nice, the new management team has done alot for the place... More

I love their pizza and have been a regular for 40 years. The Antipasto salad and Pizza are our favorites. Although the meatballs are very good too. This was our frist trip to the new location since we usually dine at the India Street location. We were pleased. We have voted Filippi's the Best Pizza in San Diego as long... More

Went to this place on a last minute decision for something different than seafood. We were visiting from out of town and had enough of seafood for the week. Wow, it was very tasty and the portions are huge. The pizza was fantastic and the sauce was delicious. The service was great. We walked out with a doggie bag just... More

Between the tile floors and high ceiling,the noise was overwhelming,making it extremely difficult to have a conversation. The decor was new and pretty, but not worthy of charging $7.50 for a glass of wine. The pizza was basically a ton of morzerrela on top of minimal extra toppings at $2.00 each. After tip, a medium pizza and glass of wine... More

Had dinner with the wife. $20 coupon two salads, bread, a pizza, lasagne & pasta. Wine was extra. Service was great and food was great as well. We noticed a change since the change of ownership and we'll be coming back more often now. Food was hot didn't feel rushed at all. A very enjoyable dinner.
