We were in town for a family vacation and chose Filho's for a birthday dinner- it did not disappoint! We did the 30 minute call ahead seating and got a table as soon as we walked in on a Friday night. Our server was wonderful, had a great sense of humor, and was great with suggestions (including for our one vegetarian), as we had never been there. We had cheesy garlic bread and mussels for appetizers; then pizza, eggplant parmesan, pasta alfredo, and pasta ala nonna for main courses; and finished with lemon and chocolate cakes for dessert. All absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Filho's and am sure we'll go back the next time we're in town!

We went to Filho's in Acton on sunday night of Labor Day weekend. It wasn't too crowded, but we got there about 7:15 and it closed at 9. Service was good, attentive and courteous. We ordered the Antipasto, a full Caesar Salad and a spicy sausage pizza, The Salsiccia I believe. Food came in a reasonable amount of time, salad was ok, nothing special, though they did offer anchovies on the side, most places don't even have anchovies, so a plus there. The antipasto was good, though, again, nothing particularly exciting or special. The pizza was mediocre, crust was soft and floppy, sausage wasn't spicy or even very tasty, so the pizza was disappointing but ok. Wait staff was very prompt and courteous and they never even asked us to leave even though we left well after 9. Again, nothing bad about it, except maybe the pizza crust, but nothing all that great either. We had a few drinks and it came to well over $100 including tip... not sure how, but it did. Won't be rushing back there any time soon.

Excellent pasta options for vegetarians. Best thing on menu, surprisingly enough, was pepper cheese garlic bread. Met Izzy the Owner. Nice find near Walden Pond, Emerson House, Orchard House and Sleepy Hollow cemetery.

Filho's incredible Italian cuisine expertly prepared and awesome full service-yes please! Quaint cozy restaurant and bar with outside patio seating as well is just perfect. We started with the cheesy garlic bread and meatball app which was fantastic. For our entrees we had the lobster ravioli, ziti alfredo with chicken and the tortellini pomodoro with scallops. All were so delicious no room for dessert which looked incredible. The friendly service was awesome can't wait to go back!

We had a great lunch there, with many options beyond the obvious. I look forward to going back. Very friendly staff and accommodating for my mother in a wheelchair.
