Filippi's Pizza Grotto is one of the most beloved Italian restaurants in San Diego. Its pizza has been highly acclaimed since first being served more than 50 years ago. The front of the restaurant is an Italian shop selling dried pasta, wines, candy, canned goods and olives, and a deli selling Italian sausages and cheese. After passing through this aromatic area, one is led to the restaurant itself. The chefs here dish up all the classics including lasagne, spaghetti and meatballs, ravioli and more. Imported and domestic wine and beer is available.
Monello brings the culinary traditions of Milan's streets to your palate, for a decidedly different Italian experience. Cousin to the hugely popular Bencotto Italian Kitchen located nearby, the relaxed restaurant has gained a large foodie following in a short span of time. Milanese street food staples like piadine, fritti and polenta are served small-plates style along with a selection of breads and cheeses. Their award-winning pizzas are not to be missed. A choice of main courses including Branzino, Bistecca Monello and Coppa Arrosto complete the menu. The wine list offers excellent diversity, with Italian and Californian choices. The wood-dominated interiors, with textured stucco walls intend to capture the feel of Milan's streets, and are rustic, yet elegant. There's a little outdoor patio as well.
Crispy coal-fired pizzas is the name of the game at URBN, a North Park establishment that's attracting pizza lovers in hordes. The dining room is a warehouse-like space with wood-beamed ceilings and brick-exposed walls. Subdued lighting gives the place an intimate vibe. Comfy booths and bar style seating make up one part of the room, while a smaller area, with bare walls and huge tables caters to groups. The selection of New Haven style pies on offer is varied and comes with a equally diverse choice of toppings. The bar offers a fine choice of beers, craft cocktails as well as wine.
