Food was delicious and the service was impeccable! The stellar reviews are spot on.
The food and service was fabulous as always. The fried arugula appetizer as well as the bruschetta appetizer are both standouts and I always get them when I dine there. While the entes are expensive , you get what you pay for. Here you get fresh made-to-order, high quality food..and that is what you are paying for. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic meal with friendly, make you feel like family service! Highly recommend!
Best Italian food in Somerset County. You will not be disappointed.
Wonderful and flavourful food that can’t be beat! Very friendly owners and host!
This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is tucked away on the outskirts of Somerville with parking in front and back. The food is terrific and it was recently renovated thanks to Hurricane Ida. If you haven't been here in awhile it is definitely worth the trip. It is owned and operated by a lovely local couple that make you feel like you were invited to their house for dinner. Food is great with reasonable prices. Bring your own wine.
The owners and staff are great and the food is delicious.
Very welcoming establishment. The staff was very professional and attentive without being intrusive. All the dishes we ordered were excellently prepared and ver tasty.
LOVE_ LOVE_LOVE!!!! Best Food and Staff!!!
SO HAPPY THEY ARE BACK!!!!!
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.
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.
5 stars across the board! From the moment
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..

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.
