Diner Reviews
  • "We were first at Filippo the night our granddaughter was born and returned with her, her parents, and other family for her 1st birthday Saturday night. The food and service were excellent, and everyone had a great time. I was pleased they would allow outside wine and had called in advance to make sure it was OK. Theyinformed me upfront that there was a $25 corkage fee. While I went in knowingly, in hindsight it does seem a bit excessive. It would not stop me from going back, but $50 for corkage of two bottles on top of a dinner tab for 8 is a bit extreme."

  • "I don't review restaurants unless the food is exceptional, this place is beyond that. Everyone, from a family if picky eaters was more than pleased. Italian, amazing. Seafood amazing. I'm from NY and believe this place is better than many 1 Michelin starreds and as good as many 2 and even 3 starreds. Amazing all around. "

  • "Filipo's is just fabulous food in a great Chicago neighborhood. The recipes are straight from Italy and you can tell in the taste of the food. Filipo himself is a great host and may even share some limoncello with his guests. Just love the restaurant and will be back....several times"

  • "It is rare that a meal is so good I close my eyes to focus and savor the delicious flavors. The bread, grilled seafood appetizer and asparagus rolled in eggplant and wrapped in proscuitto were devine. My friends ordered the Ravioli Annarella and declared it wonderful. The Fettuccine Sozze was so full of flavor that it truly is one of the best pasta dishes I have ever tasted. The service was perfectly timed and I can't wait to return. This is a new family favorite for sure!"

  • "I live in the neighborhood and am a little ashamed this was my first visit to Filippo's. The room has a positive vibe, unpretentious and with a "we are what we are and we like it" aura. The menu has plenty of options and everything we had was good to great. Our server was terrific and very helpful. He was able to get a few things tweaked for my wife to get exactly what she wanted and she raved about it. He picked out a nice wine for me to pair with the special I got. All good. We had a great time and look forward to returning."

  • "My group of 5 arrived on time and were greeted with confusion it was as if the restaurant did not have our reservation. We were not seated for 30 minutes and instead of apologizing to us the staff apologized to the people who had to vacate the table in order for us to be able to sit down. The whole meal we felt rushed as if they wanted us to eat and leave."

  • "My wife had the special stuffed pork and I had the rigatoni with Italian sausage and red sauce. She loved her dish, but I thought mine was better. Great martini's from the bar. The waiter was knowledgeable and nice. We told him we had an hour so we could go to a movie. He had us out the door right on schedule. The movie, Wolf of Wall Street, was great, too."

  • "Took my wife here on her birthday as it had been on our neighborhood short-list and it was one of the few remaining open places on the coldest night in the history of time. Our server knew the menu in and out inclusive of evening specials and made honest recommendations for cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and wine, each of which we thoroughly enjoyed. She topped everything off with a house drink at the end to help "stay warm". Ask for the seafood soup special which was served the week of Jan 6!"
