This Restaurant has a lot of history, good fortune it's all good . Pies are unforgettable and so are the pasta dish.I would give four stars all day, must see.

“Right in the heart of Little Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Philips’s is conveniently located in the heart of Little Italy. Traditional Italian food at it’s best. They have a full selection of Italian delights on there menu and a good wine selection as well. Family owned and operated. The food and service can’t be beat. I’m just crazy for the Sausage Subs. “Monte bravo”

“Italian gem in the heart of downtown San Diego, CA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The DePhillipi family is known in San Diego fro authentic Italian cuisine. Family owned for many years, the most delicious pizza and lasagna anywhere in SD! Great location, but little parking, get there early. The best sausage pizza on the planet. and the deli in front is awesome! Enjoy!

“Great pizza!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have dined at the Little Italy location and the Pacific Beach location. I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Both places are laid back and relaxing. The pizza was excellent and the prices were good. The restaurant is clean and the workers were very friendly. I will be eating at Filippi's again!!
