Super casual and super delicious. If you are willing to walk a straight shot east after you go to the MET, this is worth the walk. Excellent pizza and garlic knots, served flavorful, cheesy and piping hot as it's supposed to be. Order at the counter and then sit in the tiny eating area in the back. Price is fantastic:... More

I've worked in the neighborhood for 20 years and for as long as I've been here, so has Don Filippo. I've eaten everything from slices, to pies to heros to dinners. The food and service are consistently good. They have a variety of speciality pies and your typical Italian menu and all my selections have been top notch. In a... More

Stopped in for slices. Filled with locals. Large portions. You can order at the counter and then sit or you can sit and have them take your order.

It's a small place, and I kind of stumbled on it and decided to give it a try - very good decision. The price is very fair and the pizza is great, very much like the original Italian pizza. The service was great, the very kind guy behind the counter helped us pick the best flavor for us and didn't... More

I really need to try other things when I go to NYC when I hit an Italian place like this, but I live in a virtual pizza wasteland in California. So when I hit NYC I want a PLAIN slice, this means just cheese, sauce and crust. Yes you get some great pepperoni, sausage etc on pies in NYC, but... More

We have lunch here, I got the meatballs and spaghetti and my girlfriend had the Don Filipo's specialty pasta and let me tell you that was some of the best chicken pasta I've had. Definitely recommend this place. Very affordable too.

The pizza was good and not too expensive. Nice little place with seating and clean restrooms. I ordered pasta fagoli and some mini paninis as well.

We stopped at Don Filippo on Lexington near the 77th Street Station recently for a couple slices, finding their cheese pizza to be ok. Crust was quite hard, making the pizza difficult to bite through and chew. This distracted from what otherwise seemed like rather good slices of cheese pizza. Just a few bucks each, so generally affordable for what... More

They always have a hot pie so it is quick and really easy to down a slice and keep moving. I am spoiled that my timing always works that the Pepperoni is just coming out of the oven when I arrive - so it is my pie of choice. You can sit at a table and have service or pick... More

Extremely good pizza and very affordable. I ate a slice of pepperoni pizza and a slice of mozzarella cheese pizza. Both where very good tasting and well made. Much better than the best I've tried home in Sweden. If you're at the MET museum I would recommend the 10 minute walk to this restaurant after the visit. It's very frugal... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
