I realise that very thick bready crust and a corresponding topping of cheese is attractive to some people. Not to me. I'd say the dough is better than Domino's but that's where the advantage finishes. Also bland toppings... such a shame.

This is a must stop spot in Little Italy. I love that it's in the back of an old Italian market. If only the walls could talk.

This place sincerely has the best pizza! So much cheese and delicious toppings! I’ve been eating at the Filippi’s pizza chain since I was a kid, and it is such awesome food! Everytime I visit San Diego, I make it a point to eat here!

They have a small lot that I believe is valet run. Otherwise street parking and dependent on time of day, you may need to feed the meter.
