My daughter and I went on an extended walk down College Avenue from the University of CA to Broadway and stopped in at Filippo's for a quick lunch. A tiny neighborhood restaurant, the cozy spot offers simple yet inviting ambiance. We ordered a chicken caesar...More

Casual street-patio dining with good food and service. A good bargain is the bottomless wine and pasta/entry that they offer. Compared to other Italian options near by this is a great find. We enjoyed the balata and then the garlic shrimp, then ended with sharing...More

We took my 84-year-old mother in a wheel chair to this spot and were pleasantly surprised. We all had something different and each dish was yummy. There are tables inside and outside and everyone was friendly and courteous. Would definitely go back.

This neighborhood restaurant provides consistently good service, decent wine, delightful pasta dishes (including gluten-free ones), fresh salads, and interesting polenta and risotto options. It has about a dozen tables of outdoor seating from which you can people and dog watch. It's a great place for...More

I really wish I loved this place, as I live in the neighborhood and find it's tiny size and charming ambiance very appealing. I have gone about 4-5 times over the past two years, and each time have come away thinking the food was so-so....More
