Wait was extreme and the pizza didn't have very much flavor. Even attempted to call order in but no one would answer the phone

I was bummed a couple years back when our only Italian place closed for business. For a while Barona Italian Cucina was the only place to get great Italian without having to go to El Cajon or West. The pasta might not be home made like Barona's but it's good value Italian made quick. Service is ok, place gets crazy... More

It was kind of a zoo that day. We had 32 people to feed and everyone was hungry after coming from a tour. We arrived a little before our schedule time and they were having a hard time sitting everyone and taking orders. They did not seem to have enough people working and they had a full restaurant but much... More

Stopped in here for a celebratory dinner on a Saturday evening - super busy but we were able to get a table for eight of us. Fun atmosphere and totally neighbourhood casual! Great service and lots of parking. Lots of icy cold beers and the pizza and pasta menu is long - we started with fresh bread, calamari, a salad... More

The serving sizes are HUGE! The prices are great! The food is delicious! The restaurant could use some sprucing up but I can overlook that when everything else is so good!

We ordered a large pizza, salad, and a half order of ravioli and lasagna that was on one plate and it was plenty of food to feed all 7 of us and plenty of left overs. It was very good for our first visit. The sauce was way different than I ever tasted but in a good way. I'm used... More

I want to like Filippi's. I try to like Filippi's, but I don't like Filippi's. I ordered two entrees (one to take home for dinner). The spaghetti with meat ball was ho-hum - with lots of pasta and not that much sauce. The sauce that was there was thick - but I think it's because they just put gobs of... More
