ScrumptiousWhat a wonderful dining experience! Food was so good and the wait staff is so attentive. Love Filomena!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUSAte twice that same week. Will be back when I return next year for National Association of Realtor Mid-Year Convention. Your waiters are the best!!!!! Fantastic food, will recommend always, thank you for an awesome experience, Jan5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian Grandma in the kitchen.Simply arguably the best and freshest Italian dining experience I hav ever had. It's a must everytime I'm in DC.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We've become regulars here - almost every special occasion, we come here! Absolutely love it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian food around!When in the District one must make a trip to Filomena Ristorante. If you don't remember DC by its monuments then certainly you will remember DC from your experience at Filomena!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTo Die ForMy husband & I went to Filomena's while recently vacationing in DC. A friend told us we "must" go there. We have never been more pleased with a recommendation! From the moment you walk in you sense you are in for a treat. I wish I could remember the names of our dishes, as they were unbelievable. I had black pasta with seafood and my husband had a stuffed chicken dish. Make reservations in advance and look forward to your time there. As our excellent waiter said, "Pace yourself." Despite being beyond full we shared a chocolate caramel cheesecake that put us over the edge! In a good way. We can not wait to return!! Best food ever.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day waitMy wife and I took her mother there for an early Mother's Day dinner. Our reservation was for 4 o'clock and as we walked in a few minutes early it was obvious they were running behind. The main host was very pretentious and only responded to an aggressively rude gentlemen that demanded to be called "Dr." when he was addressed. Not only did his party of three get seated before us, he also got the window he repeatedly said he should get. So, I guess the moral with the host is to be as inconsiderate as them and they'll reward you. As for the food and waitstaff, it was amazing. Great servers, amazing food. I can't recommend the food enough. The calamari appetizer and the lobster linguine were the best I've ever had.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodFood was outstanding. We has pasta - wish I'd known how big the portions are - we ordered too much food. We arrived a little early and the placed was packed - I thought they would be late on our reservation but we were given a table right on time. Waiter was professional and friendly. Overall an excellent meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is spectacularThis was the fourth time at Filomena's, I took my wife for Mother's day and it didn't disappoint. The food was amazing as usual, everything I've ever tried there is top notch. The service was very good. The noise level was fairly loud but it's a testament to the good time people have there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly Fine Italian FoodThe pasta is to die-for and the desserts are the best I've found in DC. They're a bit on the pricey side (most pasta dishes are in the $30 range) so it is a special-occasion kind of place. But it is hard to imagine anyone not liking Filomena's. The complimentary Amaretto and Sambuca are a nice touch.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian restaurantFilomena's has delicious food and an extensive wine menu. Homemade pastas with marinara sauce and seafood dishes are equally wonderful. The lobster pasta dish was chock full. We had a really great dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect! IEverything was perfect! I made reservations a while ago and we were running 10minutes late because our Hotel didn't call us a Cab when we asked, and Filomena accommodated us! It was a great place to have a romantic dinner with my boyfriend! He loved it!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian food at its bestWe had a fantastic evening at Filamena, from the time of entering and seeing the mammas making the fresh pasta upstairs we enjoyed every monment there. We were a party of 4 visiting from England who arrived very early and they took excellent care of us, we enjoyed drinks in their bar area while we were waiting , then went on to enjoy a magnificient italian feast, so much so that none of us could eat any of their desserts which was a real shame because the looked scrumptious.
I would suggest that anybody who goes there doesnt eat for a week or so before hand.
Ciao Filamena!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Italian FoodThe NY & NJ area is known for having the best Italian food in the United States. Filomena Restorante of Washington DC is equal to the best in the NY metro area. I travel to DC at least once every year and Filomena's is always one of the reservations that I make during my stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the DC area. My favorite meal is the shrimp risotto with lobster cream sauce. The restaurant is always so willing to please their customers that they add scallops & lobster to the dish upon request.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were too stuffed to haveWe were too stuffed to have dessert but the desserts looked wonderful!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food .....Go Hungry !Great food, great service, great fun. A must go if you visit Georgetown. Portions are large enough to share, but you should order multiple dishes to try the cuisine. The complimentary sambuca is a nice touch. Looking forward to returning.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalFilomena's was recommended by a local friend as a sure thing for my trip to DC. I was entertaining clients and staff and the evening exceeded every expectation. Everyone raved about the food. The service and ambience added to what has become a memorable evening four our group. A+5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMlove FilomenaI've been going to Filmena for years; special occasions and dinners out with girlfriends. The service is prompt and friendly, and the food is delicious.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DiningSecond time at Filomena this week. Food was excellent and dessert (strawberry cheesecake) super. Had a wonderful time at Filomena.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fancy Night OutI had a lot of fun here. I went on a romantic date and I was glad I was able to hear my beau over the rest of the ambient sounds and diners. The food was great! I thought it was a super classy place that required nice attire. Most were dressed accordingly, until I spotted a guy in a Tshirt and jean shorts. Boooo. We still had a great time.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!I've been to Filomena several times, and it is always a delicious and fun experience. I highly recommend!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMold world italanThe food was excellent. Family members had pasta and all loved it.Hubby loved the squid pasta which is difficult to find and apparently even harder to make. I had the branzino special with polenta and the fish was quite possibly the best branzino i ever had. Cooked with the skin on and the flesh was moist. Calamari and mushroom apps were delicious and not overcooked as so often happens in a busy place. Wait staff was knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing--we did not feel rushed. The only negative is that it is very small and dark and extremely noisy. Definitely not for a romantic night out.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Dining in GeorgetownWe were visiting DC and lucked into finding this place. The food was outstanding and the menu was extensive. Lots of seafood. They make the delicious fresh pasta right there on site. It was loud and fun. The waiters grouped together to sing Happy Birthday to 3 customers while we were there. We would definitely go here again!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful place to dineFilomena always delivers exceptional service and delicious food. I have been here many times, and the consistency and high quality dining experience keeps me returning. The bread selection at the start of the meal is warm with several different choices. Food arrives in a timely fashion--quickly enough but without the feeling like you are being rushed. Best Italian in the city for sure. Authentic, rich flavors. The hospitality is welcoming, and you are always given Sambuca or Amaretto at the end of the meal.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI always go to Filomena whenI always go to Filomena when in Washington. It is a gem. Great variety on the menu. And desserts to die for!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceWe enjoyed very much dining at Filomena Ristoranti. Food was excelent. Tasteful and generous. Certainly will return. Not for those requiring a low noise ambiance.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great dinnerWhen my parents come down from New Jersey we always eat here. The food is great and staff although like to turn the tables over are very attentive and professional. Love this place especially their hand made pastas. Ciao5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb!La gente, il cibo, e l'atmosfera era eccezionale, come sempre. Filomena è il mio posto preferito pranzo a Washington, DC4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFrequent diner back for moreI eat at Filomena pretty often and always enjoy it, after my last experience with some iffy service I was glad to get a more up-to-standard waiter this time. The food and wine is always excellent, I tried a new dish this time and wasn't disappointed. I even re-heated the leftovers the next day and it was still good.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely my favorite restauarantAbsolutely my favorite restauarant in DC. Consistently great food and atmosphere, and the best selection of seafood pasta anywhere! It's our favorite for special occasions, in-town company, or just because we want fantastic food.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFilomenas is my Grand daughter'sFilomenas is my Grand daughter's favorite restaurant. She chose to celebrate her 16th birthday at Filomenas. The waiter was attentive to this group of teenagers as he would have been to a group of business men, which i greatly appreciated. The food was wonderful and my Grand Daughter and her friends had a wonderful evening.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe homemade pasta was lightThe homemade pasta was light and tasteful. The seafood specials wonderful. Very large portions were really dinners for two. I did not try an appetizer but the dessert that I had was different and very good. Again for two. The complimentary amaretto and anisette was a nice touch.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for a special occasionI wanted to propose during my gf's bday, so the double occasion deserved a special place. Fiolomena was a perfect match for my plans. Ambience is very romantic and the canellonis were the best we have tried. The wine list is mostly italian but well selected. In general, Filomena was an excellent choice that we highly recommend.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is outstanding...soThe food is outstanding...so good!!! I cannot remember the last time I have had such a lovely dinner at a restaurant. The service and food are outstanding!!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery thing was outstandingEvery thing was outstanding except for the noise level. VERY LOUD :(4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCramped and loud, but oh-so-GoodGreat experience for a special occasion. The restaurant is a bit cramped, extremely packed and vibrant on a weekend night, but there's a reason. Filomena's has amazing food, and is worth any inconvenience in crowds and hurried waitstaff.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experience!!!We came to DC for a women's half marathon and chose Filomena as our per race dinner spot. We were all satisfied. The homemade pasta and sauces were excellent and loved the nice touch of sambuca and amaretto for our after dinner drink. We would come back again for sure.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFilomena's food was terrific!Filomena's food was terrific! The only drawback is that the seating area felt a little cramped. I'd go again, however.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BEST of the best, worldwideI travel the Wold round and I have NEVER, including Italy had a better Italian eat!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Tortellini di MichelleThe Tortellini di Michelle had the most exquisite sauce ever! Can't wait to go back to DC so I can go to Filomena again!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great service.Excellent food and great service. Portions are HUGE! (It would be nice to have the option of half-portions, especially for those who are coming from out of town and do not have the abilility to do a 'doggie' bag.) There were three of us, and we ordered 2 entrees - which we all shared.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always look forward toWe always look forward to going to Filomena's - authentic, consistently delicious, Italian cuisine. Consider sharing an entree so you can have the heavenly tiramisu for dessert.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth it! Pricey for Pasta!Food was very good, the pasta ladies making noodles in the window are happy and delighted to let you take a picture of them! It was LOUD so if you are looking for a quiet spot, this is not it. We had a group of six, everyone loved their food and we had pasta, fish, chicken and veal between us. My only complaint was that the wines by the glass were just OK. I mean, there was one of two of each variety but nothing that stood out. The bottle list seemed extensive so that is the way to go if possible. I'd have loved better by-the-glass picks, though! Pasta dishes very large but $21+ for pasta is high when pasta costs $99/lb!! And a la carte. I'm from a big city and even I thought it was steep. Very good overall, though!!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best Italian restaurantsOne of the best Italian restaurants in the Washington DC area.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMust dine!Dont let the decor inside fool you, the food is fantastic. Very large portions of food, you might want to consider spliting a plate and having a couple of appitizers. And make sure you leave room for the homemade deserts that are to die for. The only problem is the table that we were seated at was near the bus kitchen and we had a LOT of traffic from the watiers going by constantly, was a little annoying.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatStopped in here on a visit to Georgetown, one of the better italian restaurants I've been to. Food was delicious (also generous portions) and the service was superb. It's definitely popular (for obvious reasons), so a reservation is probably a good idea on Fri/Sat evenings.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great seafood comboHad a great seafood combo with squid ink fettuccini. Was to die for. Service was phenomenal. Looking forward to next time!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticWe love this restaurant and eat here every time we come to Washington.
The Osso Buco was without a doubt the best I have ever had.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMInvited to DinnerThis place is always amazing. Beyond having the most perfect pasta, the service is so genuine and inviting - they always make me feel like a true dinner guest. There is no better place to take town visitors. Try your best to save room for dessert, the cheesecakes are a dream!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian food in the world!Best Italian food in the world!
