Line was long getting in, but that was because it was a Friday night in Little Italy! The restaurant supposedly has been around since 1950 and definitely gives you that old world, soul gratifying food. I also thought it was kinda cool walking through the restaurants small market to get into the restaurant. I imagined I was being led to a secret Italian gathering to have dinner with The Godfather.

Came here while walking around aimlessly in Little Italy. You enter through the market but once you go through the aisles of the market you end up in the huge space in the back where the restaurant is. Took me by surprise lol. Tried the fettuccine and loved it!

Great homey spot in the heart of Little Italy. I can't resist ordering the antipasto salad every time I go. My favorite dish is the Lasagna and the Pizzas have six delicious slices. Fabulous Farmers Market on Saturday a few blocks away.

My favorite spot for pizza. It's right in the middle of Little Italy. There's an awesome Italian market in front. The restaurant is hidden in the back. But get there early, say around 5:00 to avoid the long line. But the line does go pretty fast so not to worry if there is one by the time you arrive. It's just so hard to wait staring at all the delicious market items while you're also smelling the aroma of home made pizzas baking in the kitchen.

A old San Diego standby. There is a line out the door for dinner as you walk through the little Italian deli to get to your table. The food is pretty standard (meaning most people will find it okay) and their pizza is very good and cheesy.

Located right in the center of gorgeous Little Italy, Filippi's (family-owned) is a wonderful place to shop for Italian goods or for a bite to eat. It is a market/butcher-shop up front and the restaurant is tucked behind. The restaurant usually has a short-wait, but it's well-worth-it! Fantastic pizza, and a good wine selection. Dim lighting, checkered table cloths make this feel like your in Italy. Fun for a date night, not too casual, not too fancy and very reasonably priced!

We decided on a weekend getaway in SD and stayed about a block away from Little Italy. We decided to walk around to see what looked good. We passed by Filippi and there was a line of people waiting to get seated. Since we were a party of two we were seated in like 10 mins. We ordered the lasagna and the special pizza. The Special Pizza was topped Cheese, Sausage, Pepperoni, Mushroom, Bell Peppers, Black Olives, Onions & Meatball and it was pretty tasty! Lasagna was good too and a pretty good size.

This is a local chain here in San Diego, with locations in Little Italy, Chula Vista, Poway, and near the airport. The Little Italy location has an attached store with Italian goods and can get very crowded. I haven't actually sat in and dined in a while, but we usually buy their pre-made pizza dough to use at home.

Oh man. Their pizza was pretty fantastic. Get some stinky blue cheese from the deli counter and spread it on the pizza, and then prepare to take one of the tastiest bites of pizza you'll ever have.

OMG this place is so good!
The pizza is just like in Italy with thin crust.
I love the bottles that hang from the ceiling.
