Filippi’s Pizza Grotto 

So, I’ll close out 2015 with a review of one of my favorite Italian restaurants, Filippi’s.  This place has been a San Diego institution for generations.  Starting out in Little Italy back in the 50’s they now have a number of restaurants around the county.  This is the southern most one, located in Imperial Beach.  Now Filippi’s is best known for their pizzas, but sometimes I like to get a classic, heavy red sauce dish.  Here’s a great rigatoni with meat sauce, side of Italian sausage and meatball, salad, etc.  I had to lay down after eating all this!  Not really a top shelf Italian restaurant, but a very comfortable, homey place that’s affordable and no frills.  Probably the most generous portions you’ll find around.
