My husband & I were visiting Boston & told we must have an Italian dinner on the North side. We happened upon Filippo’s & were so glad we did! The food was excellent & Christian, our waiter, was awesome!! My husband had spaghetti, which he almost always orders in Italian restaurants, & said it was the best he’s ever had. I had gnocchi Bolognese, which was also delicious! This is an excellent place to enjoy an authentic Italian meal!

Simply the Best in the North End! Never disappoints. The food, drinks, service, and atmosphere are all outstanding! Christiano is by far the most attentive and friendly server!

Great ambiance. Located in the heart of the North End. Yummylicious entrée, antipasta, original Italian sauce. Please try the Sangria 🍷 Cristiano is a talented Italian connoisseur, a true gem. Makes you feel like you are in Italy. Excellent service every time.

An outstanding restaurant with the perfect menu, chefs, and service. This location has a tremendous history of great restaurants and Filippo’s maintains that tradition. It’s proximity to TD Garden makes it an automatic for a pre-game dinner. The price point is very fair for its exceptional quality and North End charm; and the second floor is ideal for a large event.

You may get lucky; but advance reservations, especially for dinner, is highly recommended. Ask Cristiano for a bottle of the excellent Umbrian red wine unique to this restaurant. It’s a fabulous selection worth every penny.

I’ll find any excuse to return for the perfect dining experience.

I was disappointed with the menu selection for both food and alcohol. The ambience was lacking and the hostess wore her mask below her nose the entire time. Our waitress however was very sweet, however she admitted she worked next door and was doing them a favor. We ordered the bruschetta and it was lacking flavor and visual appeal. I will not be returning.

My girlfriend tells me that this Italian food is better than what she was actually served in Rome and Florence. I’ve eaten here with her twice and I’ll never hesitate to go back! Gerardo (Gerry) is an excellent server and his company is part of the experience. We had the entire place to ourselves and it was a grand time. Start with the Focaccia, you won’t regret it! The Pomodoro is to die for, chicken and pasta cooked to perfection, and the fresh mozzzarella topped it all. It’s incredibly affordable considering portion size and quality, and if I could eat there every night, I would! Give them business and keep them in the North End forever!

WE love Filippos, pre Celtics game. Even during Covid the Celts were on at 9PM Friday so we drove in town for dinner at Filippos before the game, made it home in time for the tip-off.

Another outstanding meal before our event at the TD Garden. The food is always delicious and the portions are huge. The staff was playful and attentive. They make you feel like a regular every time you come in to dine. Our go to place for traditional Italian dishes before the Bruins or Celtics games!

I have been going to Filippo Restaurant for over 20 years. It is a get place to o especially before n event at the garden. They are only a short walk to an event and their wait staff understands the importance of you getting there on time. Their food is always fresh and served hot., and their sauce is one of the best in the north end. Prices are reasonable and their wait staff is excellent.
