I've enjoyed Filippi's Pizza for decades, and it never gets old. Great pasta's and pizza's, and the atmosphere has the same great busy yet light atmosphere you can expect for your dine in experience. You'll never have to order extra cheese! (but I hear a few adventurous people still do!) Meatballs are large enough to share. Highly recommend for all!

I have been going to Filippi's for over 30 years, starting when you walked through the grocery store with it's enticing aromas to the back with maybe 8 tables. The original is still in Little Italy but much expanded. Fortunately Filippis has a location in both Poway and Escondido which we frequent. Our children when small loved the cheese pizza... More

I've been coming here for 30 years, since they were in their little location across the street. Can't miss pizza every time.

Being from out of town, I wasn't sure where to go, but I was assured that this was a good restaurant. We tried the pizza and antipasto salad and both were great. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I thought the décor, while pleasing, was a bit tired. The portions were very large and the value of our meal... More

Another great dinner. You should come hungry. The portions are large. Most likely the best antipasto salad I've had. Pizza has great flavor. All the greats-chicken parm. Meatballs etc. parking lot is a little small. Plenty of tv's for sports. Staff is really great.

Filippi's is one of our favorite places for lunch. The antipasto salad is the best I have ever eaten. Their sandwiches are enough for 2 meals. They keep the prices affordable with high quality food.

Filippi's is everywhere in the San Diego area. That doesn't doesn't diminish the fact that it's our go-to place when the family wants to go out for pizza or Italian. The pies are enormous. Crazy amount of cheese. We also always get the large antipasto salad. Great dinner.
