Business History
Vincent DePhilippis and Madeleine Stefani came to America in 1922, Vincent from Italy and Madeleine from France. They met in New York and married in 1925 and settled in Philadelphia. In 1950 they moved to San Diego where they opened a deli grocery on India Street, which was called Filippi's Cash and Carry. This was the beginning of what was to become a successful line of family restaurants. Today Filippi's Pizza Grottos are owned and operated by family members of the original founders.

Best Italian I've had in San Diego

The food here is very good. It still doesn't compare to Chicago or New York though.

Good food. Bad service.

The food is awesome for the price. It is very secluded. gives a very italian feel. The service was absolutely horrible. The people are very rude. The older lady (with salt & pepper hair in a ponytail) that took my payment threw my receipt at me and another coworker had to apologize for her senseless rudeness. The waiter was very short and when he came around to ""check on us"" he was very quick and walked away before... view more

My very first review!

Not the best, not the worst.... i personally prefer Italian Style pizza, thin crust, not a lot of sauce... Fillipis is actually pretty good. Gave it 3 starts because there seems to ALWAYS be a line out the door. LIke the Chianti bottle decor... good for families.

Tough Critic
It is what it is.

Walking ""Little Italy"", and boy is it little, we stumbled onto Fillippi's and was drawn in by the charm. A deli/grocer upfront and a restaurant in the rear.

Best Pizza In San Diego

This is the place I take or send all out of town friends and clients that want Great Authentic Italian Pizza. Order the Works Pizza and have it cooked well done. It comes out with crunchy crisp crust and the best toppings and pizza sauce you have ever eaten! Make sure you get a Antipasti to share with your table.

Fillipi's is the bomb

I love pizza and my all time favorite pizza place is Fillipi's.. They pile tons of cheese on, are very generous with the portions and even their lasagna and spaghetti is good but their pizza is awesome. It is a friendly place with a great atmosphere, good service and I highly recommend this restaurant for those who want a great pizza..
