Welcome back to mmm-yoso!!! the food blog. Cathy is pretending she is Kirk and posting about food she eats and enjoys. Because Kirk is busy consuming (and enjoying) food in other parts of the world, which he will post about soon enough.
When you walk into the Little Italy location of Filippi's, you have to walk through the grocery area to get to the restaurant.
We were seated and looked at the menu. Our Waitress came by and we asked for a half carafe of Chianti (~$8) and continued to look at the menu...
Yes, the chianti is served in the small glasses shown. We then proceeded with our usual order...
The small antipasta (~$9). A bed of iceberg lettuce with mortadella, salami, cubed parmesan and provolone, beans, pickled vegetables and topped with the house (Italian) dressing.
The salad is served with fresh made Italian bread rolls and butter.
A sausage-mushroom pizza (~$14). The pizzas at this location are one size. The sausage is fresh, not fatty, has fennel seeds which add to the flavor and is so wonderful. The mushrooms are fresh, not canned.
The Mister is a wonderful man, who understands I need to have anchovies with my salad and my pizza. ($1.50). I cooperate by getting the anchovies on the side.
People love the pastas and sandwiches (hot and cold) offered here also. At this location, I have never had old bread or stale tasting anything, which has happened at other locations.
Filippi's (Little Italy location- there are 12 locations, all family owned and operated, but the food does not taste the same as it does at the Little Italy location.) 1747 India Street, San Diego 92101
