Great food. Going for 20+ years and great every time.
Nice food and good service, great value and authentic food
Authentic Italian food. Family business! Will definitely return to this BYOB.
Pleased with the entire dining experience!! Had the pan-seared Mahi-Mahi w/jumbo shrimp. My husband had the braised beef and one of my friends had the eggplant w/pasta (her husband had what I had, then he finished every bit of her pasta). The bruschetta was a winner too.
Can’t wait to go back went everything was great from start to finish
Had an excellent meal just not sure if it was worth the cost. For example, Cafe Graziella offers you bruschetta when you first sit down at no additional cost, while da Filipino charged you $10. I had the baby octopus and risotto with cuttlefish in its own ink, it was very good. My wife had the pan seared swordfish with a small salad, very good but not worth $38. Reserve for a special evening not a regular Saturday night.
We loved the restaurant and the service was great. Although the food was very good we thought the portions were small for the price. The menu was also very limited.
From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family! The service was great and the food was fantastic! When inside, you feel like you are in Italy. There is a piano and anyone is welcomed to play. The outside needs a little updating to be more inviting.
I love the food and the owner was so sweet!! Best place ever!
Great - would return
Food was great! Owner is the best.
Food is excellent the hosts are gracious and the ambience is wonderful.
Outstanding food and great service. Family owned and family atmosphere. 5 stars all the way.
5 stars across the board! From the moment
The food was authentic Italian. If you grew up in an Italian home, you will feel at home with the best food here.
The service was excellent and I see why you need to reserve in advance.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
A gem. Great Italian served with lightness and fun. A must go.
This is a family owned restaurant and it's wonderful. The owner played the piano and sang while all the diners ate. The restaurant is very clean and the waiters are very attentive. I'm definitely going to go back. The food was delicious and came out quick.
Haven’t been there for quite a while but will go back soon. Food was excellent!
Amazing food, great ambiance and wonderful service... perfect
Food is just old school great Italian. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The seasoning is just perfect in every dish I’ve had there the seafood is incredibly fresh. Pricing is very reasonable. Will plan to go back often
This was my first time there. I was pleasantly impressed. I highly recommend it and will come again.
Great food and really enjoyed the service! The owner and his team are the nicest people and really care about their customers and their enjoyment of food. Definitely a good choice!
This waitress messed up our order and did not take any steps to improve the service after the error. She even failed to give us the normal bread basket. Just not a good experience.
No mention how good the food was? not fair! After all your negative remarks on the waitress and srvice you left 33% gratuity? this is strange! We tried to call you, but you left an invalid phone number!
Always. Great experience when dining at da filippos
Always a fabulous meal and friendly people!
Wonderful food and amazing family atmosphere. I loved when the owner came out from the kitchen and played the piano for the dinning room. Just a nice relaxed home feel.
Excellent and inventive Sicilian cuisine served by a very friendly staff. Filippo is not only an accomplished chef, but also a great host. He adds a welcomed personal touch to a fine dining experience.
Birthday dinner…food was good, not great. Probably would skip another visit. They are very attentive, but there is a pretentious air..
Hi, what do you mean by saying "there is a pretentious air"??? are sure this review you wrote belong to our restaurant? if yes let us know what was your problem. Filippo Russo Chef/ Owner Da Filippo Autentica Cucina Italiana Est. 1988
Da Filippo is simply amazing. The ambience is a ten, food always spectacular and the service the best. We always feel like we are eating at someone’s home-not a restaurant.
One of, if not the best, Italian restaurants in the area.
A wonderful dinner. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere warm
Excellent family run establishment. True hidden gem. Food is deliciously authentic and service is outstanding! Our server, Andrea was wonderful. If you’re looking for authentic Italian and a feeling of dining with your favorite family members, this should be high on your list! Fantastic!!
Friendly couple, though they were a lot more chatty with the other tables than us. Appetizers were amazing especially the octapus. Long wait for food. Food was great, portion size good and all dishes very tasty. Pricey though and a bit too much salt for me. No service after our dishes were cleared. No dessert menu offered. Had to get up and ask for a receipt. No singing but we came at 5:30pm and left by 7. I personally would not go back, the hype in the reviews did not justify the price for me.
While we appreciate constructive criticism regarding our food and service, you implying that we "cater more to the white crowd," is not only appalling but also gravely insulting as your implication is false. Your defamation of our character has prompted us to forward your review to our attorney.
My favorite restaurant in Somerville! Excellent ITALIAN FOOD and the owner is a knowledgeable chef, world traveler and pianist.
The food is always amazing. Fillipo and his wife always make you feel so welcome!
Great place to enjoy a nice quiet meal. Family atmosphere makes it very comfortable
We started the evening having a lovely dinner with my friends from college and the evening ended singing around the piano singing with Filippo! He played many songs we could sing with him from the Beatles to Frank Sinatra! Can’t wait to go back again! And the food and service was great too!
The food (which is spectacularly) is outmatched by the charm of the owners. The cheapest evening in Italy that money can buy! Not to be missed.
Their owners and staff are so wonderful and kind, and the food was awesome.
First time back to Di Filippo’s and they did not disappoint. The service is impeccable and you feel like family. The food is also phenomenal. The orichetti pasta with sausage is a must!
