Pasta with meatballs, excellent! Pizza was also awesome! In a small shopping center, in back. Small, make reservations for a weekend night. Has a small market attached to it, they can make sandwiches, have a small deli, and some take out, also gelato. Staff is pleasant, quick service, smiling.

Excellent pizza, very good homemade pastas. Yes, these are nice. But the service at Filomena's is what sets it apart from the rest. We showed up unexpectedly on a Saturday night with a large, hungry, and rowdy group, and they accommodated us with the greatest tolerance imaginable. So, so nice and so, so helpful. Just can't say enough good things. I would give them 10 stars for service if I could. And also, get the sausage pizza.

Filomena's Italian Kitchen does a very good job on preparing freshly made pasta. My younger brother-in-law thought there lasagna was excellent. My wife thought her angel hair pasta dish was very good. I liked the cheese ravioli, but would prefer a meat ravioli dish. Wine and beer prices were a little bit too high for this casual restaurant attached to a Italian Deli. Excellent service. Not a lot of parking, but we had no trouble finding a place to park. Closed on Monday.

This family venue is a crown jewel of Costa Mesa. Cozy and quaint dinning area was intimately inviting; was ushered past the appended authentic deli market with salami and confections abounding. Attentive waiter hit pay dirt suggesting the sautéed mushroom appetizer, served in a hot iron plate steadied by a wooden plank, adding a nice visual touch; the sauce was flavorfully indulgent; next serving was a generous portion of delicious veal saltimbocca, lightly breaded, complimented by homemade futticini. Couldn’t resit gelato as a finishing touch to a grand meal. Next time: The linguine and clams is a must.
