Open Table suggested Filomena and I am very glad that we decided to try it! Great selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Homemade pasta is one of the best items on the menu. Portions are large so many people leave with leftovers. Complimentary sambuca and amaretto post-dinner was a nice surprise. It’s a bit loud in the restaurant so if you are looking for a quiet dinner, Filomena may not be for you. If you want a good meal, plentiful food and an engaging atmosphere, give Filomena a shot.

Everything was just okay. Comical sized portions but in what could be a set for a made for TV movie. For the money, you can do a lot better in Georgetown.

It was my wife’s birthday and we had clearly mentioned so while booking. However the restaurant failed to acknowledge the notes and did not do anything special for us.

Had selected this restaurant based on good reviews it had however did not meet our expectation.

Every time I’ve come here I have had an incredible experience. However, my last experience stuck out. Franco was waited on us tonight. He was very attentive and asked questions to best understand what my tastes were before recommending a dish after I asked. The food (lasagna and fruit cheesecake) were incredible.

We dined here before a Michael Buble concert at the Capital One Arena. The restaurant is really charming with lots of character. Our server was friendly and he made helpful suggestions. We started with the calamari fritti and sausage with peppers and onions. Delicious! My daughter and I had specialty seafood dishes -- both incredible! My husband had a sausage cannelloni. He loved it! He also loved the house wine. My only regret is that we didn't have time to eat dessert! Maybe next time!

Great Italian food, but the staff is amazing you feel like you're in Italy. At the end of the night, they share a little surprise with you which is delightful. You always go home with a doggy bag :) but that's more fun, you can relive your delicious meal a second time. A great place to celebrate and have a great meal.

I think Filomena is a good restaurant because it has great food and outstanding service. It is very unique in a good way. When I take my first bite of Filomena's food , I get a great feeling that I don't get in any other restaurant. I would definitely recommend Filomena to a friend.
P.S. I think the lady in the window is super cool!

My family and I loved Filomena. We all enjoyed our food, from pizza to pasta to dessert. We went on a Monday, and took advantage of the well-priced weekday three course meal, consisting of an appetizer, main course, and dessert. The portions are gigantic, including dessert. Everything we ate was delicious, especially the burrata, pizza and tres leche cake. The restaurant was crowded, yet our server was very attentive, and the meal flowed nicely. The décor is interesting and fun.

An amazing dining experience! The team of servers really makes you feel pampered and every dish that comes out of the kitchen looks and tastes amazing! While the prices are higher than most, the portions are overly generous and the hand made quality pasta and sauces make it well worth it. I aways take home leftovers, making it two delicious meals for one price! Desserts are incredible and to top the whole experience, the amaretto at the end is a palate pleaser for sure!

Wonderful character, superb service, and even better food - make a reservation though! Despite the crowd, at our table of 6 we had no problem hearing each other talk in normal volume, which is also huge. I'd go back for the character, or the service, or the food, or the volume - to have all attributes be stellar guarantees we will be back. Not to mention that each plate contained enough food to be 3 separate meals!

It appears that they have packed in too many tables in small space. During our dinner we felt like we were having dinner with the people sitting next to us. We were even able to listen to their conversation as they could ours as well. Also, food was too salty and it actually made me sick. Not best experience. Very disappointing as this used to be one of my favorite restaurants in DC.

Awesome food and service was superb and quick. This was for Valentines day and they really packed the place out which contributed to more noise than I really cared for but we still had a great time there. I'd definitely go back.
