“Quaint, Cozy and Utterly Delicious!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Lovers of Northern Italian food know authenticity when they taste it, and believe me, this stuff is real! Whether you try the focaccia, the Five Mushrooms in a White Wine Garlic sauce (Fettucine Boscaiola) or the Tiramisu (the best I've ever eaten), you will be delighted. Small and family- owned, Filippo's is a Lincoln Park gem. Don't miss it!

Our dad wanted to come here for fathers day. When we got here we were greeted nicely. The pasta was amazing And my mom said her salmon was the best.

“Decadent sauces, great local find”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Overnight trip to the Windy City brought us (3 families with 1 teenage daughter each) to Filippo's last pm. When you enter the front door, you are blown away by the smells of garlic, fresh bread, marinara sauce & oregano & it only gets better from there. Restaurant is owned & run by a local family. Several in our group had 3 cheese ravioli special & really raved.the calamari was yummy, not too heavily breaded & fresh.I had the Pollo Shirley (trying to be healthy) it was quite good, but I'd recommend throwing in the towel & having either the lasagna (cheese, sauce & spices were phenomenal-how great can lasagna be? It was AMAZING!) or anything with a cheese sauce. We also shared numerous salads, really fresh veggies seasoned well. Desserts were also yummy, gelato, tiramisu & some incredibly rich chocolate cake thing.....
Service was friendly, staff were helpful with recommendations, warm smiles & kept your drinks filled. Restaurant is on the small side, making for a family like experience, but I wouldn't recommend showing up without a reservation.
Highly recommend this restaurant!

“Charming and fun”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

We found Filippo’s in the midst of standard chain restaurants. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the real Italian waiters. Each dish was better then the other – make sure you share. After dessert, they brought out home made lemon cello. A must try!
