We had eaten at the Filippi's in Pacific Beach and enjoyed it very much. The one in Escondido is similar, great food and plenty of it. The wine complimented the meal right up to last drop. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Met with son and his family for Friday night. As usual, the place was crowded and we had a 10-15 minute wait. Staff is friendly as always, and pizza was tasty.

We stopped in at Fillipi's in Escondido to grab a pepperoni pizza to go the other day, after exploring some new homes in Escondido. Been there many times (also the one on India St. in San Diego), and never had a bad meal! This time...More
