About Filippi's Pizza Grotto

Filippi's Pizza Grotto is a casual dining restaurant chain in San Diego, California, specializing in pizza. Vincent DePhilippis and Madeleine Stefani immigrated from Italy to the United States in 1922, with Vincent coming from Italy and Madeleine came from France. In 1950, they both moved to San Diego where they initially opened a deli grocery store on India Street, in the Little Italy area of downtown San Diego. They then added a pizza restaurant to the original deli, which launched a very popular line of pizza restaurants across the County of San Diego.
