Location and contact

Inspired cuisine 40 years in the making - A statement Filippa's truly lives by. Filippa's is a casual, fine dining establishment, offering a collection of American and Italian cuisine. Executive Chef Rick Hussey is the captain of the culinary ship, serving award-winning creations for his entire career. In our main dinning room, we emphasize friendly, warm, and comfortable. A perfect setting for that inviting business lunch and a casual dinner with friends or that special someone. The Lounge offers ambiance of old-school sophistication and new-school style - perfect for a beer or martini and a late night bite after a movie. When summer hits the stage, Filippa's unveils its one-of-a-kind patio.

This was once a great restaurant but now I’m not sure what happened. The menu choices were odd. The food pairings strange and unappetizing. I really didn’t see anything I wanted. The food was fair at best. Friday night at 7:30pm the place is empty....More

My husband and I like to go into their bar area for happy hour. Food is good. Not a lot of TVs so not a sports bar, but they do have keno which we enjoy. The wine pours could be a bit more generous.

Very small lunch menu at average $15 and NO substitutions. The $14 hamburger (ala cart) only comes with American cheese! I think they go to Mickey D's and walk it in! Got the caravella pasta. Adequate at best, too much hamburger , not enough Bolognese...More

Met for lunch at a mostly empty restaurant. The customers were all in the bar area. The lunch menu consisted of 3 items on "special" - which included soup or salad and the entree. I had the perch and it was OK. What happened to...More

Hadn't been here in years and won't be hurrying back. Menu is very limited and the service was horrible. Our waiter disappeared for an hour after our food was served.
