“It's a great family restuarant and there's plenty of room, so really never a big wait (however, the parking lot do.”
“The food is reasonable and very good here.”
“used to freelance for a company right near here, and it was a good place to take a break and grab a slice.”
“Our waiter was excellent.”
“wasn't so keen on their pastas but their pizza crust was thick and their sauce tasty, and their prices reasonable.”
Great Service for a Large Group.
I phoned Anita Taylor, the manager of Filippis on Kearny Rd., from my home in Oregon to inquire about accomodations for a group of about 35 for a family reunion. She layed out what seemed like a very good arrangement for us - ordering from the menu with separate payment for each family. I met with Anita when I arrived in San Diego - the night before our gathering. I left feeling I had just met with a good friend and this carried through our entire event the next evening.
We were given a semi-private room. Our waiter was excellent. He was efficient and patient - and handled well a group that was busy mingling together. He saw to it that the young - some very young - children had bread brought to the table almost immediately to help their needs. It would seem that the staff that worked with this waiter - to help with the serving - worked well together. Food was served hot and it was served quickly. At no time did we feel rushed.
The whole evening was all that I had hoped for. All our group was very happy with the choice of Filippis as the first night for this first ever family reunion for us.
We'll look to Filippis again if we can manage another reunion at some time in the future!
Poor service bad food Dirty resturant.
the service was awful , the food was cold, the sauce tasted burnt or maybe just old
the manger was not at all caring or helpful. our family will never go back.!
Decent pizza. I used to freelance for a company right near here, and it was a good place to take a break and grab a slice. I wasn't so keen on their pastas but their pizza crust was thick and their sauce tasty, and their prices reasonable. A few times our service could've been a bit better but overall it's fine.
Classic pizza parlor is a San Diego tradition in Little Italy.
From the red checkered table cloths to the hundreds of chianti bottles strung from the ceiling, this pizza grotto is a classic experince in Italian-American dining. After more than 50 years in business, people still come in droves to wait in line for a table and slice of what is routinely voted the best pie in the city. Also popular are the macaroni and spumoni.
