Everyone has their favorite Cheesecake and this is certainly ours. Super rich moist texture and taste, right down to the graham cracker crust! This wonderful cheesecake is topped with fresh strawberries and strawberry glaze
Cookies N' Cream
Our thick and creamy White Chocolate Mousse blended with almost TWO full pounds of chopped Oreo cookies. Fudgy flourless chocolate cake on top and bottom make it look like a huge cookie! Decorated with whole Oreos
Coco Chocolate Cake
If you like Mounds Bars then you'll love our approach. Three layers of our moist, rich and fudgy chocolate cake with two layers of our thick and creamy shredded fresh coconut cream
The experience was fun because of the ambiance / decorations. Unfortunately I didn’t love the food but I also didn’t think it was bad whatsoever, just not great. Service was meh. Felt safe in light of COVID times!
Fantastic evening! Great food & Service! We loved all the Halloween decorations.
Server was excellent and the food never disappoints!
We had a lovely time.
Excellent service , they should consider actual family size portion and maybe have a certain night for families
It was a great experience. The food was amazing and the service was great.
We had such high hopes! We ordered a salad and three dishes to split amongst four adults. The salad was delicious and the bread was wonderful. We kept saying how we could barely wait for the main courses! While everything was delectable, NONE of the three dishes were warm. The middle of the one meatball was actually cold. The scallops and shrimp were warm, but every ravioli was lukewarm at best. We were quite shocked. Although the food itself was very good, we were quite surprised to find nothing at an enjoyable temperature.
Love this place! Everything we had was delicious. Will go back.
We always have a great time
This restaurant is off the chart
Staff and management has excellent service ,food and decorations are amazing
We have been to Filomena three times over the past 20 years and are impressed with how consistently excellent the dining experience has been. Little of anything has changed. The service is outstanding; we had a table near the kitchen and watched the food being prepared. Our portions were generous, and we took almost half of the food home. Our waiter helped us pick a bottle of wine from their truly Italian and truly outstanding list. And the desserts.... all are handmade originals, and most feature a healthy dose of chocolate. If you dine here, save room for the desserts, which are unique. I would highly recommend for any special occasion, or just a welcome night out. Reservations are required, and you will need to book in advance due to the consistent popularity of the venue.
For good food and good ambience, you can’t beat Filomena.
Mixed feelings, for Filomena, which definitely is more Eyetalian than authentic Italian. Take the saltimbocca, a classic Roman dish. While the veal itself was tasty, it was drowned in an inappropriate sauce and topped with mozzarella, neither of which you'd ever see in Rome. Agnoletti in a cream sauce, likewise, were inherently good, but again (despite asking to go light on the sauce) were drowning. The salsiccia, while tasty, should be browned/grilled (they looked more boiled/German than Italian. The one outstanding dish was the rugola salad: perfectly balanced with excellent ingredients. In all, while the food is good, it seems that there's a more is better mentality.
AMAZING dining experience! The atmosphere was SO FUN, we loved the halloween decorations and the entire staff was incredible. Not to mention, food was INSANE! 12/10 experience!
Great service. Food was outstanding.
Our server (Tony) was exceptional. He took time to walk us through the menu, cracked a few jokes, and provided his recommendations. The food was phenomenal, not to mention good portion sizes as well, and the drink list of great.
As everyone else has mentioned, the decorations were awesome! The entire restaurant is decked out for Halloween, while maintaining COVID health protocols. Tony told us all about the tradition, which was great as well. We will certainly be returning next time we're in town.
Filomena is always a favorite of ours. The food is truly outstanding and the service is incredible. Peter is the best waiter!
Filomena never ceases to impress me with their excellent services and simple outstanding dishes.
Our fave restaurant in the DC area! Outstanding service, delicious Italian cuisine, desserts and wine! We can’t wait to go back!
We normally love the food but this time around we were not happy with the Ravioli w Meatballs but this time around were horrible! Wife couldn’t eat them so we returned them and we still got charged for it smh... I’ll go back again and give them another shot but unfair to paid for something that wasn’t tasteful.
Outstanding food and impeccable service! Our meal was earth-shatteringly amazing- definitely the best fried calamari we've EVER had! The cheesecake was unbelievable and not to be missed- but everything on the menu was perfect. Our waiter was so attentive, kind, and friendly as well. The safety measures to make sure everything was sanitized for us were wonderful. We had the first truly happy evening in the months since this pandemic started, and we couldn't be more grateful!
Food is AMAZING!! Very rich sauces, great portions.
I love this restaurant, i’m a regular. Food and service is always great

The food was absolutely wonderful! The social distancing and sanitation practices were great too!
It was amazing
It was very good. The waiter had a good knowledge of the menu and the wine list. We enjoyed his recommendation on the wine. The food is always delicious.
This was a surprise for an individual who doesn’t like surprises..let me start ... the BDAY BOY had to be at l’east 20 minutes late... regardless FILOMENA accommodated and it was the best BDAY!!
PETER not his actual name on his name tag ...PIEOR? He was phenomenal!!! He was very attentive and we never had to wait for anything Peter made sure that we enjoyed Mr.Harris’s experience..this was the BEST!!! COVID is real and FILOMENA made sure it was compliant!!!!
Halloween decorations were an amazing surprise! Top notch.

Great service. So accommodating foe our party. Thank you for a wonderful evening. So much food!!!
Amazing food and service. Very safe and we loved the table dividers.
Small celebration for an 8 month wedding anniversary as newlyweds. First time we’ve really been out of the house since the pandemic started and we decided to come to Filomena’s. The staff followed all safety precautions and everyone in their staff wore a mask and gloves. The staff was superb per usual and everyone wished us a happy anniversary throughout our dinner. We’ve been to Filomena’s a million times and will continue to come back a million times more! Thank you guys for a wonderful evening and even more delicious food!
My mom and I drove from Buffalo to Arlington for a get away. We looked up restaurants and made reservations not really knowing much about this Restaurant besides it’s Italian food.
When we were there we were blown away! The ambience was so tasteful, the decor for Halloween was so incredible, the food was exquisite and out of this world! Coming from an Italian part of WNY I’m speechless! I would drive back in a heartbeat for another phenomenal dinner. Our server Gustavo and Fabio were magnificent! So kind and professional, very welcoming for us! Thank you for such an amazing experience! I truly hope the restaurant and staff get to see this !
Thank you soooo much everyone ! Also to the BOH chefs too!
Passing through DC on our way to Florida,we wanted to dine on some Italian food. The portions are generous . We started with special house meatballs , house Cesar salad with a delicious creamy dressing that was light and flavorful , veal Marsala and a rich desert . Wonderful evening‼️🍷
