Been there once before. Such a nice place to go for dinner. Food is very good. Owners are so delightful. You will not be disappointed
Excellent menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our entrees and appetizers.
Came highly recommended by local Italian families and it turned out to be wildly underwhelming.
We had a terrific dinner at da Filippo. The fried arugula appetizer was particularly good.
We really enjoyed our meal and the restaurant in general! It was not busy as several people had canceled reservations due to a snow storm. This being said, we expected the service to be 100%. They forgot one of our appetizers and the waitress apologized and said it was her mistake. We really enjoyed the meal! We give the food 5+ Stars and the ambiance the same BUT the service could have been a touch better. We would definitely return. The price was right and we always love BYOs because our wine is affordable!!
The food is amazing and the service is even better. You may get lucky and hear some live piano music! From appetizers to coffee and dessert, da Filippo’s is a great choice. BYOB I recommend asking the servers for help if you’re unsure what to order.
Beautiful atmosphere. Family owned. Chef phenomenal!
The owner and his wife are always friendly and accommodating. They explain the menu carefully and offer suggestions. The atmosphere is very friendly and I love listening to the piano when he sings and plays. Love this place
Excellent, unusual Sicilan/Sardinian dishes and BYO!
Love the Ambience , the food and the loving hospitality of the owner Couple .Owner also plays the Piano and has a great voice 👍❤️
Always a great dinner a t Fillipo's! Been going for many years and never dissapointed!
This was our first time at the recommendation of a friend. We were greeted by the owners who made us feel welcomed and like we were family. The food was outstanding and different from typical, even upper scale, restaurants. Service was excellent and not rushed. Atmosphere is warm and relatively quiet. In short, it is outstanding and we’ll definitely return.
We always have a good time and a great meal at Fillipos. Highly recommended. The owners are very friendly and always stop by at the table.
We had a wonderful time celebrating my husband’s birthday with our son and daughter-in-law. The staff was so welcoming and made sure that we were well taken care of and comfortable. The food, from appetizers to desserts, was fantastic! We truly enjoyed our dining experience and are looking forward to our next visit. We highly recommend dining here, you won’t regret it!
A great meal with great service!!
This is our 'go-to' restaurant. I had the pasta special, which was delicious. It had a hint of mashed broccoli in with the red sauce. Outstanding, I hope they offer it again. As an appetizer, I tried the special which was a lentil soup with sausage. Again, outstanding. The bread is always fresh from the oven and we eat so much bread we had to bring part our entrees home. The owner's are friendly and want to ensure the customer's experience is pleasant.
Great meals and wonderful service!
The owner (wife) meets you at the entrance, the owner play piano (husband) and the staff is just so friendly and attentive BUT they let you sit back and savor your meal - never a feeling that they are rushing you - in fact, I think they would stay for hours after closing time if you were relaxed and enjoying yourself! It is a BYOB - which is nice and prices are also very reasonable.
Baby octopus was grand!
The owners made us feel like family! Food was delicious!
We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere- always a joy to celebrate at da Filippo
Always great. Really special when Filippo plays live music on piano.
Used Open Table to find a restaurant in Somerville. da Filippo Autentica was selected based on reviews. We did not know what to expect. We are so happy that we chose this restaurant. It is "warm" and very comfortable. The hostess (owner) is friendly, conversational and her background is interesting and made us feel at home. The menu is extensive, creative and authentic. Everything is cooked to perfection, with what I can only describe as love. This is a new favorite restaurant, well worth the 30 minute drive. Oh, and her husband, who is the chef, later came out and played the piano.
Da Filippo is a very friendly restaurant with an excellent menu that never fails to delight.
Always a wonderful meal.
Food was disappointing after all the hype we had heard about the restaurant. Wine was apparently self serve (unlike any other BYOB in the area) and the service was so slow it lead us to believe our order had been forgotten. Would not recommend.
Always a beautiful experience. Personal, intimate and cozy. The food is, arguably, the best Italian food you’ll find in the area. Without question, our favorite for so many reasons.
All around great experience. Food is delicious and the service is excellent!
Excellent original recipes, Food was amazing and the service was perfect. Will be going back to this place over and over again!
Slow service but enjoyable food and ambiance
excellent experience and wonderful service was provided!
Filippo never ceases to amaze. I’ve had dinner there many times over the years and always ask for the tasting menu. Filippo creates and cooks a five course meal that he thinks you will enjoy. I have never had the same meal twice! The other night he created two entirely new dishes that were spectacular!!! Always excellent!
Eating at Filippo’s is a gift. We don’t go as often as we should as after every meal I say “wow”. His food is first rate and so authentic. It’s a special evening especially when he plays the piano for guests. Such a gem!
da Filippo Autentica Cucina Italiana is superb! The owners interact with guests as if you were in their own kitchen. The hospitality is warm, the food is delicious and it's a bring your own. The restaurant has its own parking lot behind the building. It is just outside the main area of downtown Somerville. Prices are a little high but the quality is worth it.
Great dinner! Food is always outstanding.
Although the food was very good, the menu is extremely limited. Also they were out of some items on the menu which made the limitation even worst.
If you are looking for a casual restaurant serving authentic Italian food this restaurant is a good choice. It's a mom and pop business. The owners greet you and share the cousine for the evening. A real old world style.
Drove 2800 miles to have dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant. Always have the tasting menu and haven't had the same combination of courses twice in over 20 years. We live in California now and it's never disappointing to visit Fillippo's!
This is an outstanding local Italian/Sicilian BYOB restaurant! Attention to every detail of food and service. Free parking in rear of restaurant. Best experience: Let the chef "cook for you." It will be wonderful!!
Great food. Everything was on point.
It is a authentic Italian restaurant . I really recommend the bruschetta and padta.
