Filippi's Pizza Grotto Reviews & Ratings

  • It's insane that I lived in San Diego for almost 14 years and never reviewed this place. Why the five stars for a small Americanized Italian restaurant? The ambiance, the service, the grocery section in front and those massive meatballs, for starters! From the outside this place is small and unassuming, but once you walk-in, head to the back and see all of the wine decanters hanging from the ceiling, you know you're in for a treat. My last visit here consisted of a massive salad, some meatballs, a thick pizza, a few Arnold palmers, and slew of hungry friends. The salad was tasty and came already tossed in dressing and covered in meats and cheeses. A great way to start the meal. The meatballs come in individual bowls and are huge... like softball sized. These are delicious and with every meaty bite you get to taste the zesty sauce these meatballs are swimming in. For the pizza we got "The Special". A large pizza with onions, mushrooms, black olives, peppers and loaded with cheese. This is a heavy meal so come hungry. The pizza was fantastic. The crust was crunchy and chewy, the veggies were crisp, and the thick layer of cheese was the perfect accompaniment to the sauce. If you're visiting San Diego and find yourself in Little Italy, this place is a must. If you're not sure, just ask a local. Salute!

  • Super cute restaurant tucked behind their market. Very vintage feel. Service was great. Food was among the best Italian I have had anywhere. Lasagna was delicious. Pizza was possibly the best I have had - so much delicious cheese. Ravioli was good, but the lasagna and pizza were better. Salad was really good. And they have a kids menu.

  • Tasty homemade Italian food, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Good old Italian favorites, nothing fancy. Nice little market at the front of the store with plenty if Italian specialties....cookies, meats, cheeses, pastas etc. Be prepared to wait in line for a table during peak dinner time.

  • I had a party of two and was able to get to the front of the line quickly due to larger parties in line in front of us. The line was just barely out the door but we waited less than 10 minutes. Larger parties were waiting up to 45 minutes. Ordered garlic bread and the special pizza (with 8 toppings). Service was good and the food was good too. The pizza was more than enough for two people. (Cost over 20 dollars though). Pizza was good but I've definitely had better at other places. Another random complaint is that I asked for Italian soda at an Italian restaurant and they didn't have any, seems a little strange for an Italian restaurant in Little Italy. (For the record, little Italy in Baltimore, Maryland feels much more authentic and has better food choices if you ever make it there.) Still, the food was good, but if I had to wait 45 minutes I probably wouldn't go.

  • They are very generous with the cheese! Super tasty. I liked the fine crushed red pepper and fresh greater Parmesan cheese. Our server seemed a bit depressed tho.
