I'm a native New Orleanian of Italian descent, I love food! I learned my culinary skills from my mother and grandmothers and have had success over the years serving some of their delightfullly classic dishes. I am very attached to my Italian roots and have been in the industry a long time. My wife Mary and I work diligently at the restaurant to make it a wondeful place to dine for all of our guest.

While the menu does not change over the years, who cares?

The location, owner and staff are just great.

BUT, make a reservation as it is busy.

Every time in New Orleans I make it a point to come here.

Great food and service.
Only problem was the difficulty with hearing what anyone at our table of six was saying. Very loud. Also, each couple at our table wanted their own checks. The waiter couldn’t do it.

2nd time we have eaten here. Both times we really enjoyed the food and service. We both feel it is at the top of our list for Italian food in the New Orleans area.

We were initially going to another local Italian restaurant but couldn’t make reservations ahead of time but open table saved the day by allowing us to reserve ahead of time at Fillippo’s, also a neighborhood restaurant. They were very nice and seated us in a private room for the 6 of us. The trout almandine was delicious but definitely split it- it was tremendous; the spinach artichoke soup was very good and the caprese salad was good. Great bread too. Nice restaurant.

This is the best Italian/Local Restaurant in the area. Food and Service are great and the family that owns the restaurant make sure your experience is perfect .

Really a hidden Metairie secrete that shines through out the NOLA area !

Food was reasonably good. Service was attentive and friendly. Zero Covid protocols in time of Omicron frankly made us uncomfortable. Apparently no one else seemed to care.

We knew from the start, with the bread being stale, only lukewarm in parts, and having a once-frozen taste, that the meal would be mediocre. Thank goodness for the ambiance, service and our friends’ company were good!!

Restaurant was very busy but we were able to get a table. It was a great meal and an experience indicative of a home grown NOLA restaurant that is a huge success and draw. We’ll definitely be back.

It says something about the quality of this restaurant that with all the dining choices in the area, I keep coming back! A friend introduced me to Filippo and it was love at first sight… and taste. The ambiance reminds me of the little Italian places in New York that I loved to visit. The food is divine and it is one of the few places that will cheerfully agree to my multiple special requests due to a number of food sensitivities.

The staff is exceptional, service outstanding, the entire experience is just wonderful! If you haven’t been there, what are you waiting for?

We enjoyed the food. They were out of a few basics (like meatballs) and there are no substitutions but otherwise, we enjoyed our meal. The owner stopped by to welcome us to NOLA and offered a few suggestions on where to go which we appreciated. Definitely visit this family run restaurant for authentic Italian food.

The food was excellent
I found the appetizers a bit pricey for the portion received but the entrée portions were incredible!!!
Service was spot on and the food was delicious!!
Didn’t care for sitting on top of the people on either side of us. It feels a bit crowded to me
BUT…. We will definitely return and recommend to friends and family!!!

Restaurant did not have any gluten-free options. Waiter was unfriendly and in a hurry the entire visit. He did not come to our table for 20 minutes, then was dismissive and short. Food was below average and atmosphere was mediocre.
