We sat for 10 minutes before being waited on. After placing our drink order, we waited another 15 minutes to order food. We ordered a starter and an entrée. We finished our drinks and waited another 30 minutes at which point another server brought us a basket of bread. The couple dining next to us, who had arrived after us and who were eating their entrées, graciously offered their bottle of olive oil to us for our bread. When the food came, it came all at once. The bruschetta was barely edible--grilled bread topped with a spoonful of not very appetizing or flavorful tomatoes and mozzarella, both of which were diced smaller than pencil erasers. The veal saltimbocca was ok--light on the veal, heavy on the cheese. We will not be returning.

Great food! It was quiet when we went, and we were a large group coming from the TD Garden. We were seated immediately. Cozy, authentic Italian cuisine. Super friendly service, with a little bit of spunk, which I like! Only negative for me was that the bathrooms smelled so strongly of bleach that it made my eyes burn and I had a coughing fit upon returning to my table.

Disappointing. The wrong entrees were brought out twice. We ended up settling for for what was brought out since we were running out of time. Two out of four orders were correct. Food wasn’t hot. And then the bill charged us for sides that the waiter told us was included in the meal. We questioned him and he said it was for the sides. In the end we had to get to a Celtics game. Have had great experiences in the past but not sure if I’ll give them another try. The restaurant wasn’t packed but the waiter kept saying there were problems in the kitchen.

Came for dinner on a Sunday night after purchasing a Groupon for a $35 dinner voucher. Since it was a Sunday night, we were the only customers dining, but the quiet dining experience was nice. Our waiter, Gerry, was very kind and made us feel welcome and special. The food was great, and we were treated with cookies at the end!

Attended Filippo's before a Celtics game. Nice hearty fare and a nice wine to complement the meal. Very quick service - on the front end. We did languish after entrees were served. Great atmosphere and convenient to the Boston Garden. There are more adventurous choices in the North End, but this was a more than adequate spot to grab a pregame meal.

We went to Filippo to celebrate my husbands birthday. Lucky for us it was mid week - and no sporting events in town! It was quiet and we got the full attention of our wonderful server Jerry ! He made food and wine selections for us that were excellent, he was very attentive and VERY entertaining ! We all had a lot of laughs, a great meal and fun night!
We highly recommend the fried calamari, Mussels Mare e Monti, Scampi Francavillese, Pollo Lucia...
Too full for dessert but Jerry gave us Italian cookies!!!
Go there!

Tonight was the first visit prior to the game where the service was horrible. New waiter Who was assigned to us never came to our table after 20 min. We got up to leave and our faithful waiter saw us and told us he would take care of us even though we weren’t seated in his section. He is the best!! He always Remembers our favorites Good guy— Bes.

ZOO! Waited outside enclave to be greeted by hostess for too long. Had reservations had to call out time and get attention to be seated or others pushing ahead . Ahh the City. Waited forever at table to be acknowledged... Nevermind Bruno Mars Concert and no parking. Got it to go...no silverware but bartender really nice while screaming waitress prolly an owner berated another employee my first visit to Little Italy but I'm Italian too so I know how it is❤️
