This is our Sunday tradition, not just because the food is great traditional Italian without the frills, but because we love the staff! It’s like home without having to do the dishes.

After a 3 hour whale watching cruise, Filippi's Pizza Grotto was perfect. I have to agree with many others their sauce is delicious. If you want a kick to it sprinkle some of their pepper flakes. We tried the spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli and chicken parm...More
