This one is late. The Madness of the weeks up to my daughter's first birthday was too much for me. 10 relatives from Holland and 3 from Seattle.Anyway...
Filippi's is Norco's poorly kept little secret. Nestled in the "Blue" Shopping center at 1192 6th St., Norco, it's a locally raved about authentic Italian restaurant. It's actually a chain, and you can find their website at RealCheesePizza.com. Still, it has a real family owned feel, and according to the website, it is owned by a relative of the founder.
First off, on a Sunday afternoon, the place was sparsely populated and we got a seat straight away. This is ALWAY a big plus. The service was very attentive even though both our waitress and hostess seemed very young.
I had an excellent combination Spaghetti/Lasagna plate with home made sausage. It was a HUGE portion and I should have took half of it home, but... well you know. The sausage was spectacular, though slightly sweet, which is not usually my preference. This however, is a must try.
My wife had linguine with a white sauce teeming with clams. I'm not a fan of clam sauce, so I'll take her word it was excellent.
Prices are slightly higher at 8 to 12 dollars a plate. The places is obviously set up to watch a lot of football with big flat screens and the obligatory Budweiser banners. I suspect it may be a bit more crowded at game time. I'll definitely be going back.
That's it, thanks. I'm stuffed.
