Nope don't even go there! My husband went online to check out their menu since the pizza was supposed to be good. Placed the order over the phone but was never given the total and he forgot to ask. We didn't think much of it though since the menu online had prices we added it up and knew it should be around $20. When he got there the lady was rude right away before he even spoke a word. She told him it was $30 and he was surprised since he knew it should be around $20. She got really short with him (even rolled her eyes and huffed). She told him it's an old menu someone (not them) posted and it is not accurate and they've been "trying" to get it removed. Needless to say he wasn't happy and told her to just forget it and we will never be back again. She told him "fine with me" as he left the door. WE DID NOT GET OUR PIZZA AND GUESS WHAT? I CHECK MY BANK ACCOUNT AND SEE THEY TOOK THE MONEY ANYWAYS! Now I have to take time out of my day to write this review and dispute the charge with our bank. Bad Service and borderline fraud??? We live down the street and will never go back. We had tried the place once before at least 12 years ago and were not thrilled with the pasta as it tasted like it was from a jar. We thought we'd give it another try since someone said their pizza was good. Well we will never know if that is actually true!

The pizza is very good, fried eggplant strips are terrific & their lasagna is the best anywhere! Service varies depending on which server you are fortunate, or unfortunate, enough to get.

Filippos italian restaurant

I used to work there they drop slices of pizza make sure nobody is looking and still give it to customers also if they have a canceled order the manager will keep it in the cooler for a couple days just to try to sell it even after its been cooked the pizza line cooks are lazy and never clean there coolers also they have mice and ants all the time.

Our family has gotten pizza from here

Our family has gotten pizza from here for over 8 years! Love the pizza! The sauce and crust are amazing, it is a little greasy though! What pizza isn't though, right?

I agree with Stay Away

I gave one star because I couldn't rate it lower. We called to make a reservation for 2 on Saturday and were told they didn't take reservations for less than 4. So I asked how long was the wait and was told around 10 minutes. We live 5 miles away so we went, put in our name and waited in the bar. 35 minutes later, after watching the hostess seat three couples who were not waiting I asked, when do we get seated? She told me reservations come first. When i told her that I tried to make a reservation and was told of their policy, ' I didn't take your call, and these other people had reservations"". When i asked to see her reservation log, she told me either you wait for a table or leave. As i was leaving she told me to never come back. Belive me, i won't. I've eaten there and the food isn't that special.

Stay Away

Pizza was ok but we ordered a half sausage and half pepperoni and was charged an extra 5.00 for an extra topping. When I confronted the waitress about his mistake she corrected me and said every additional ingrediant is added to the cost . No wonder the place was nearly empty at dinnertime.

THE BESTEST RESTAURANT!

THEIR FOOD IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! ALL OF IT... FROM THE LASAGNA AND BIGGEST MEATBALL SANDWICH I HAVE EVER SEEN, TO THEIR VERY TASTY AND EXCELLENT PIZZA! THIS IS THE ""ONLY"" ITALIAN RESTAURANT ANYONE SHOULD GO TO! WE HAVE BEEN CUSTOMERS FOR OVER 32 YEARS, WHEN THEY STARTED OUT ON 76TH AND BECHER AND THEN HAD TO MOVE TO A BIGGER LOCATION AT 69TH AND LINCOLN AVENUE. RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN! IT IS THE BEST.......

Excellent Pasta

My wife and I tried Filippo's at a friends recommendation and are glad we did! It is local place that doesn't have a flashy look to it but the food is great and portions huge. We were seated immediately and our server did a great job.

We usually don't order appetizers but heard the Sicilian garlic bread was good and it was exceptional. The dinner came with soup (wonderful) and bread (good as well but since we had the garlic bread we took it home) and a salad (which was OK). My wife ordered the lasagna and I ordered the cannelloni. We shared our pastas and the lasagna was great and the cannelloni was one of the best I've ever eaten. We only ate half of the meals so we are looking forward to enjoying the rest of it later.

We saw lots of people ordering pizza and so we will be back to try that as well. A simple, local place with incredible food for a reasonable price.

Lovely restaurant

This restaurant offers a dim lighted candle light dinner. You get alot for what you pay for. The food is wonderful, the only thing I didnt like was that the fried eggplant was not in strips and the batter was not to my taste. but other wise it was a wonderful place and I have gone there alot with fanily abd sometimes just my sister and I go to have some time away from the kids. Its very calm and relaxing.

Thick crust at it's finest!!!

Simply the best thick crust pizza in the state, period. The hours are listed wrong on this site though. They don't open til 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Still the best Italian food!!

I read a review from soneone written late in January. It was an awful review. We already had plans to go to go to Fillipo's and so I was leary. We have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We had reservations for 9 people (4 children) at 6:00 P.M. We arrived at 5:00, expecting not to be seated. They went out of their way to set up tables right away. The food was as good as always. We had Sicilian Steak, veal piccata, lasagna and tortellini. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly. The veal was tender and the sauce was very good. The kids loved the chicken strips and fries as always. I paid attention to cleanliness and the serving of the food and I didn't see anything unusual. I will say that the service was a little slow. In defense of them, however, it was a busy Saturday night and they were very busy. We did not find the entrees to be out of line compared to other restaurants. If you are expecting to pay $ 5 to $10 for an entree then maybe an Appleby's or Perkins should be your choice. We will definitely be going back and still consider it our favorite Italian restaurant.

One of the BEST pizza's in town.....try having fresh garlic added...YUM!!

In addition to excellent pizza, I think Filippo's fish fry is about the best deal in Milwaukee.
With the option for pasta vs. fries, and the fish and garlic bread....just excellent!!

Keep up the great work!!

The best - bar none!

In my line of work I work with many pizzarias. This is number 1 in my book and I have had great pizza all over the US. They make a sicilian style pizza that you will not forget. It is different from the other great pizzas in the Milwaukee area. Writing this review is making me want to go there tonight!
