My taste in pizza leans towards the authentic Italian style-- very thin crust, not much sauce or cheese, the focus being the quality of the crust and the ingredients (other than sauce and cheese) on top of it. I remember an extraordinary late-night pizza in...More

We'd heard good things about Filipi's Grotto and were glad to find out they were all true and then some! The only negative comment was that it was so good, it was often very crowded, with lines, especially at lunch. We got around that by...More
