In 1950 they moved to San Diego where they opened a deli grocery on India Street, which was called Filippi's Cash and Carry.

Ruth Reichl, Los Angeles Times

The “food, owners and servers are all so very Italian” at this “neighborhood favorite” next to Santa Monica Airport (and its branch on Colorado Avenue) where locals go for “delicious, unpretentious”, “reasonably priced” fare and “friendly”, “attentive” service in a “low-key” setting that’s “perfect” when “you want a tablecloth but don’t want to get dressed up.”
