Excellent Pizza! This is my favorite...
Fantastic Pizza! This is my beloved pizza place anyplace! I used to believe Round Table Pizza was the bomb, but this location is so much better.
The pizza is definitely coated with cheese, I mean a lot of cheeses. The crusting is perfect and when you put the toppings, you can't go incorrect. it is actually dated. The place is high in volume but still a excellent time. I usually choose to eat in, since the pizza always preferences the best perfect out of the oven.
Filippi's pizza is the best around!! Not only is the pizza great the other dishes are as well. I love their antipasto salad.

I would give this place 5 stars, but it is really dated. The place is loud but still a great time. I usually prefer to eat in, since the pizza always tastes the best right out of the oven.

From the pizza, spaghetti, lasagna...to the amazing prime rib......it doesn't get better than this. This is a family place, bring the kids , and have a blast!!! Be sure the kids get dough balls to play with and try the mozzarella cheese sticks or potato skins as an apatizer!! For the big man in the family, try the Filippi's cut prime rib. He'll be out of his mind happy!!! And there is a full bar and a big tv so enjoy the game or eat on the other side of the restaurant for a more romantic feel!
