Seating was not very distanced. My date had to share a booth bench with another group. Although there was divider between myself and the chair next to me, there was nothing between her and the nearby party. Otherwise, the food and service was excellent

The welcome to Filomena's was excellent, as was the food, wine and service. This was the best meal we have had at a local restaurant since the Covid-19 shut down. Congratulation to everyone responsible at Filomena's and thank you for giving us a wonderful evening and the first normal restaurant experience.

I’m very picky about Italian restaurants. The food was good, not great, large portions, a bit overpriced. The staff was so-so.

This restaurant is amazing. You walk in and down a flight of steps to a lively environment. The staff is well dressed, friendly and talkative. The service was the best I have experienced even at what appeared to be peak hours. While the prices may seem high for some the portions are very large and well worth every dollar. The chocolate mousse was amazing. If you don’t like loud restaurants it may not be for you but we enjoyed the energy.

My wife and I had planned a special night out during a short stay in DC. We had dined at Filomena once before and really enjoyed it. Had reservations at 7:00 and arrived at 6:40 to have a drink at their bar but that had not yet reopened. I checked in and instead of making us wait, the host graciously seated us as a terrific booth on the side - perfect for us. Our server, Peter, a former college English professors!, was extraordinary. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. Food was outstanding. Appetizer of crabmeat in phyllo dough was very tasty. Entree that I had was linguine with white clam sauce. Have never had that many clams in a meal - and the sauce was really flavorful. My wife had eggplant lasagna. Also very good. We also had a fun dessert, never felt rushed. Great night out.

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our first month as a married couple. Unbeknownst to me, my husband called ahead to see if there’s something special he can do as a surprise. We were provided with a bottle of champagne and some delicious desserts. It made the night extra special.

The food was amazing! It’s family style, so either plan on sharing dishes or have lots of leftover boxes to bring home.

We’re definitely going back!

Once again, Filomena does not disappoint! From antipasto to dessert, the entire meal was on point. We only have a few days in the DC area and my wife wants to go back again before we leave the area. She sometimes requests that we drive 3 1/2 hours just to eat at Filomena’s.

Visiting from NYC, this restaurant came highly recommended.

Basement level dining room was a surprise, decor was circa 1985. Waiters were attentive and friendly but did not seem well-aquainted with true 'Italian cuisine'.

Dishes seemed rushed and drenched in heavy cream. Calamari Fritti could have done with an additional minute or two in the fryer and were slightly soggy, the spinach stuffed mushrooms were a creme-fest - as was the mushroom Ravioli and Fettuccini with Lobster.

If you would like a walk into the past into a 1980's American version of Italian fare with giant portions, this is your place.

Enjoy!

This restaurant came highly recommended as a staple in Georgetown. Hands down the best italian I have had outside of an Italian household. Portions are large and fresh. My lasagna is the size of the entire plate. Not a complaint I could think of.
