Friendly welcome. Operatic music. Good basic food cooked and served promptly. We were there to celebrate a birthday and were made to feel very welcome. The decor is very 70s but, why not? We'll be back as it is quirky and a nice change from the Italian chains that dominate elsewhere. Felippo is a character! I would say the volume of the music could be a problem if anyone in the group has hearing problems, but apart from that - champion

FILIPPOS IS THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN POOLE!

The atmosphere is one of relaxed, friendliness with excellent service. My partner and I and a friend came here for my recent birthday celebration.
The food was fantastic, well cooked and plenty of it. (Unless the previous reviewer had a gargantuan appetite, I'd be tempted to ignore the previous reviewers comments. The portion sizes are perfectly acceptable for a normal appetite. and as far as not being cooked properly, it's totally un-true. One final comment, I genuinely do not think they are expensive either compared to others in the area.)
The only thing with the music is that Filippo never finishes the song he starts to sing! So frustrating because he has an excellent singing voice. If you love Italian opera, you'll love this!
If your looking for a fantastic place to eat after a great day down the beach or sight seeing in Poole, You've got to come here the atmosphere and food is to die for and well worth the short distance out of town and there's always plenty of Free Parking and a local taxi company just a couple of doors down from Filippo's..
Thanks all at Fillippo's you made the end of my perfect birthday, al the more enjoyable and would definitely recommend you to all.

The food was woeful, undercooked, cold, small portions, very disappointing! It was loud with music and the manager singing at full volume. I was hoping to have a relaxing evening and be able to talk to the people across the table, but sadly this was not possible here. It wasn't cheap either... Stay away and go anywhere else but here!
