We are food lovers who visit Somerville often for dining. We had been trying to get a table at this long time #1 TripAdvisor restaurant for a while. We finally were able to get a table on a snowy night. The service was outstanding! Owner was hostessing and welcomed us warmly. She came back often during our meal. Servers were... More

A very pleasant evening ringing in the New Year at Da Filippo's...Six course meal was wonderful, the Cena di San Silvestro...The piano music was enjoyable esp. when Filippo took the stage...At midnite our party of 4 became an amiable party of 20 as everyone joined in celebrating the New Year with a complimentary champagne toast... Bravissimo Bertie and Filippo

My family and I celebrated my 59th birthday at this restaurant last evening. Let me begin by saying I had my doubts that this #1 rated Somerville restaurant could come close to the great ratings it had been given by previous diners. The front of this BYOB restaurant is almost hidden from view and it's located in the less affluent... More

I've lived in the next town over for 25 yrs and not until recently had I discovered this gem of a family restaurant. Family run white linen Italian BYOB, the atmosphere is warm and familial, the food authentic and delicious, and service gracious and attentive. I had the risotto with sweet Italian sausage off the menu, and I heartily recommend... More

I was truly disappointed in this dining experience. The service, the food, the prices were all a disappointment. It took over one hour for us to be served our main course. The waitresses were not particularly helpful, and they appeared frazzled. Out of the 4 dinners that were ordered at our table, only one was remotely worth the price. I... More

Authentic Sicilian. Great atmosphere - wife greets every table and and husband leads kitchen and we are told often comes out to play the Baby Grand (not this night). We shared a tasty and perfectly cooked pasta dish with mushroom bolognese. Had beef stew since I brought a hearty wine and beef melted in mouth. Friends had veal scaloppini which... More

Friends took here for dinner and we could not have been more surprised at a great restaurant this is. We have been living in Somerset county for over 20 years and have been through Somerville so many times and never knew this restaurant existed. The bulk of the restaurants in town are near the court house and heading west on... More

It's easy to overlook this byob restaurant when traveling on East Main Street -- there is parking at the rear of the building as well as side street parking. It was great to be greeted by the owner's wife who welcomed us and stopped by a couple times during dinner. Their bruschetta was tasty. Even more flavorful were their entrees.... More
