It is to Filomena's credit that a combination of prosciutto, provolone and red peppers is the most daring entry on its menu. Like several other restaurants that I've reviewed in the past couple of years — not coincidentally contemporaneous with the rotten economy — it seeks to provide the convenience diners usually associate with cheap fast food with a touch of the satisfaction of a home-cooked meal.

In my case, complete with the fretting phone call from Mom.

Filomena's meatball sub is prepared with housemade meatballs, then simmered in marinara sauce and topped with provolone and Parmigiano cheeses.

If you do order the pasta salad, make sure you have it before you go. Bow-tie pasta tossed with artichoke hearts, red onion and black olives in a balsamic vinaigrette — it is really quite good.

Just ate there on Tues. July 12 . Loved the aracinis and in fact bought extra to take home and fix later. Ken was a very pleasant & friendly young man. Will go back. Julie

Glad they came to the neighborhood! Good food, generous portions, excellent value, and rapid service. Much tastier than P'sghettis down the street.

I'm usually not one to comment but was very disappointed in the portion size vs. the cost of their menu items. One entree, side salad and drink, $14. I visited a few times to support the opening and my son worked for them. I was absolutely stunned to see how they treat their employees and lack of management skills. My son and I did enjoy speaking about the experiences he gained from learning how to make various Italian meals and how menu items should be tweeked to enhance flavor and portion sizes. At least something good came out of it I guess.
