Their signature pizzas are just one of the best in the planet. Not sure if they taste better the day after! Do recommend the anchovy as well as the antipasto salad. Their pasta to me is just ok.

Fabulous food and vino!!! Love the atmosphere of this quaint little bistro in downtown San Diego. The seafood pasta was amazing as was the Caprese salad. Nice little wine list. Perfect for a quick lunch!

Best home style itailian in the city, just avoid the other locations if you'd like to order pasta... everything is good at this location unlike some items at the others.

Anyplace with a name like "pizza grotto" deserves a visit. Anyplace decorated with hanging Chianti bottle baskets also deserves a visit. Whenever in San Diego, Filippi's is a must. Excellent food and great atmosphere. Huge portions so plan on sharing family style. Although there can...More

Landed, picked up our car and were at Filippi's Pizza in no time! Just as delicious as we remembered! Enjoyed a huge meatball with the amazing sauce, pizza and cheesecake! We always take our leftover pizza to give to someone in need of a meal!
