    Cristiano is a terrific waiter, and he doubles as a bartender for his tables. Excellent mixed drinks and excellent service. Filippo is the long time (before me) founder/owner and is a successful entrepreneur with his own wine etc. Just a cool place that we always go to before the Celtics.

    Service was outstanding. One of our guests was late, but there was no pressure to hurry or order in spite of a very busy evening. Gerard, our server, was attentive, friendly and accommodating. The food was outstanding and prepared in a short time.

    One of the WORST meals I have ever had in Boston!!! With a love for Italian Food we thought we would try Filippo Ristorante. We were attending a concert at TD Garden and the proximity was convenient. We had made reservations and the restaurant was a 1/4 full at best. When we asked to sit next to a window we were told that was for four people only. But, the other window seats all four tops only had two people sitting at them. Ok so we went to the back room and was put at a table that we could not even get between it was so close. So we chose to sit at another table. We ordered our appetizer which was a Caprese Salad with Prosciutto. It was a decent salad with fresh bread. As soon as the appetizer came out so did out meal. There was a sour smell that was coming from the meal and we just couldn't figure it out. I ordered the Transumanza which had Eggplant and orecchietta. When I went to put my fort into the pasta it went flying. Hard as a rock. Not fresh pasta, boxed and severely under cooked. I went for another piece and the sauce was bitter, bland and tasted a bit sour. Then came the eggplant. SOUR and tasted spoiled. I looked around to see if Robert Irvine from Restaurant Impossible was going to come out and say "put your forks down and do not eat the food"! Nope! Then my daughter ordered the Abbondanza Abruzzese. Same thing. Pasta hard and not fresh. The sauce (which consisted of butter and nothing else) was bland and had no flavor. When I told them how bad the eggplant was the waiter did not act surprised and said on the house! So for two sangrias, caprese salad and a chicken dish we spent $90. We walked away hungry so we ended up going down street to another restaurant to have dinner. So many wonderful restaurants in the area and never will we return to this establishment.

    Overnight stay in Boston and this place was walking distance from our hotel. So glad we found it!! Excellent! Christian was attentive, helpful and very kind with his service. The house red wine was great and a great value by the glass. The fried mozzarella app was delicious! Had the veal parm and husband had the lasagna- both fresh, delicious and very well made. Only wish we had room to try dessert as I’m sure it would have been just as wonderful.

    A cozy, old-world Italian restaurant at the top of the block, that somehow manages to fit a decent-sized bar. A packed Saturday night after a Bruin's win, and yet the service was as surprisingly excellent as the Tortellini Don Arturo. This was a special night, and glad it didn't disappoint. I look forward to returning.

    Service was not good and the food was worse. The presentation looked like a 4 year old assembled the plates. I’m a terrible cook but I can cook better food than this place. Had to beg for drinks. They dropped the food at the table and ran off without a word. Barely finished eating and someone dropped off the paper bill by tossing it on the table and saying “here you go” and running away. So don’t expect hospitality.

    Great Italian food, waiter was very Italian and a pleasant gentlemen. One of the few issues was the fact that he did not revisit our table very frequently. Other than that, very rustic Italian, good food.

    I ordered the special of the day lobster ravioli in a cream tartufo sauce. When my dish arrived it was composed of large raviolis in the basic red sauce. I questioned the server because I knew it should have been a cream sauce and she left the table to check. Upon return she told me I did have the right dish. I knew that was inaccurate but just let it go. The ravioli was filled with ricotta and mushy lobster. Needless to say it was not a $29 dish. I will not be returning. The waitress was overworked with too many tables so I felt bad for her, she was attentive once she finally was able to get to our table.

    The north end is tough right now to find dine in options. We took an early reservation knowing we would want to spend some time catching up, have a happy hour cocktail and some apps, then get to dinner. The place was empty since it was early but yet we felt rushed like they were trying to turn tables as quickly as they could. Our waiter was charming but pretty invasive. We ordered ion the fly without perusing the menu that closely or asking questions because we felt pressured to order quickly. My chicken and pasta was supposed to be olive oil and garlic but was more like butter soup with hard chunks of chicken. The broccoli was good. The others had lobster ravioli and said it was good. No raving about it, just “ours was good”. Wine choices are limited. For a $150 bill we kind of had an Olive Garden experience - with better bread.

    The worst service I ever received. In fact we received NO service. After 40 minutes of being ignored, the Bus-girl took our order. Our waiter did not visit our table until it was time to clear our plates. He did not apologize or asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. The waiters name is Geraldo. It was the worst dining experience I ever had. The food did not make up for the crappy service. It was average. Save your time and money and patronize any of the numerous Italian restaurants in the North End. So not worth it.
