    Seedy exterior next to a vape shop. And a rough crowd outside turning a special evening into an uncomfortable beginning Music was programmed Godfather smaltz. Cute but on and on and on Food was not at all memorable, not bad but nothing to remember. And pricing was high enough to warrant better Was truly hoping to return again and again but not until they get it together Service was excellent and the servers deserve a better restaurant

    You made my waitstaff feel uncomfortable. By not returning to my restaurant, you are doing us a tremendous favor.

    I found this place on google and I had to try it as the reviews were fantastic and it did NOT disappoint. I LOVE that it was byob and had the old school Italian vibe. From the greeting of filippo’s wife, to filippo himself after our meal I loved. Brought me right back to my grandmother’s house on Sunday. The food was phenomenal and the fact I had to call to check if he would have linguini and clams on the menu goes to show how authentic and good that will be. Area is a little sus, and it’s kinda tucked away a little from the up the street bar noise, which I didn’t mind at all. I can’t wait to come back to try other times!

    This was one of the most incredible experiences that we have had in a very long time. The ambience was beautiful, the food was absolutely divine and handmade by the chef who came out to explain every course as it was coming. The chef and his wife kept checking to make sure we were enjoying ourselves in the food. It was a beautiful experience and truly so special- the tasting menu is a must for everyone!

    First time there and it was a great experience. Service was excellent. Family owned and both husband and wife were very attentive. The restaurant smelled like Italy as soon as you walked in. All the food was really delicious. Nothing was overly saucy. Ingredients were fresh and delicious. Bonus… the bread was homemade and phenomenal! Will Definitely go back.

    The food is delicious! The owner also plays piano and sings- he's lovely. The service is excellent! The noise level can be challenging- to say the least. We had a 6:15 reservation. Although it wasn't totally full, the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. By 8pm it had slowed down and it was not as bad. Also, the food is pricy. We were there a year or so ago and I don't remember it being that expensive. But- it is wonderful!! Definitely worth the visit!

    Nice family owned and operated restaurant. Portions were a nice food and food was delicious! Owners were very kind and personable. Filippo (chef and owner) even sang and played the piano for some added entertainment. We can’t wait to go back!

    da Filippo Autentica Cucina Italiana is definitely a hidden gem in Somerville. Our dining experience was amazing from being so graciously greeted when we arrived, to the attentiveness of the service and of course the delicious meal we so thoroughly enjoyed. I had noted when I made our reservation that it was our anniversary and we were pleasantly surprised when the owner sang a beautiful Italian love song as he played the piano; and afterwards wished us a happy anniversary. It was a wonderful evening from beginning to the end. Thank you!!
