                                  Our experience was AMAZING in every single way. Our waiter Todd was so great and polite, he recommended great food selection. We ordered the lobster linguine, one of the absolute best I’ve tried, and the beef lasagna,it was divine. Tiramisu and hazelnut chocolate cake for dessert

                                  Our food was extraordinary. Eggplant lasagne was the best I have ever had. Pasta with clams, seafood, and cream sauce a big hit.

                                  Food is excellent and service is even better. Staff is extremely professional, knowledgeable of food allergies and very friendly. Restaurant was full and quite loud but our food was delivered very quickly. This was our fifth time eating here and will definitely go back next time we’re in D.C. area.

                                  It was our first time at Filomena's. Our daughters gave us a gift certificate so we decided to try it. We absolutely loved it since the moment we got there. Everyone is super friendly. We got there at 5 and I think it was the perfect time, we were able to switch tables, enjoy our dinner and but the time we were finishing the restaurant was packed. Our server Juan Pablo was wonderful; dinner was excellent, for future reference we can share a dish or take it home and enjoy it, because portions are generous. Dessert was delicious. We ordered a cocktail and a bottle of wine, recommended by Juan Pablo and it was great. After dinner he came and offered an after dinner drink, amaretto or Sambuka on the house, what a nice way to end our dinner. It is expensive but for the quality of the food it"s absolutely worth it. We decided we will come back every other month, that's how much we enjoyed the restaurant.

                                  Only mama could make Italian food any better. Fresh pasta, sauce, sausage and everything else. Simply outstanding quality and flavor in all the dishes I have enjoyed. The desserts are equally good, but with portions this large, you might need to take it home. This is REAL Italian food!

We were there for our anniversary and while it is a louder restaurant, we still had an intimate experience! Food was delicious and our server was wonderful! Highly recommend and would go back!

                                  We went to the restaurant following a graduation at George Washington University. The restaurant took us earlier the reserved time - please know that you will not be seated until your entire party arrives. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing. Staff made good recommendations on different meals and checked ingredients of one dish due to a diner's allergies. Three different types of bread were provided to the table, and we ordered two appetizers which quite good. Of the six entrees, five were truly enjoyed; the sixth indicated the pasta and sauce were tasty but he was disappointed in the lobster. He, of course, grew up in New England is never satisfied with lobster outside of that region - so why ordered it is whole different entry. We ordered three desserts (dark chocolate mousse cake (2) and an oreo cheesecake) which substantial and very good. The only downside is if you have a member of your party with mobility issues is hard to navigate the front stairs to the dining area; there is no elevator so just be sure the person is able to walk up/down a steep flight. The food and service were worth it.

                                  The man at the entrance (host) wasn’t very friendly. He didn’t greet us when we arrived and he didn’t make any effort to interact. I was disappointed with the lack of friendliness of the staff. Our server did not seem to want to be there. He always gave short answers and seemed annoyed when we asked questions. Aside from that, the food was pretty good and the restaurant was nice.

                                  The is a great restaurant for Northern Italian food in a traditional style in a basement space which is quite large once you get beyond the entry way. Food is delicious and portions are generous. Our waiter was very helpful with suggestions and provided details of each menu item beyond the description in the menu. He provided a lot of information regarding the various Italian wines, so our selection ended up complimenting our food. My wife and I informed the server that we wanted to share each portion which he happily facilitated and when it became clear we had ordered too many portions he canceled one portion so we had room for desert. We were able to relax and take our time without feeling rushed.

                                  When we left our house (in Capitol Hill), we were scheduled to arrive at the restaurant at 5:05pm for our 5pm reservation. Then, there was an accident ahead of us on the freeway that resulted in traffic coming to a grinding halt. I called three separate times to update the restaurant on our arrival, and every time, the employees were friendly, respectful, and completely understanding. I used to work in the restaurant industry, so I felt horrible when we finally arrived 45 minutes late for our reservation! Still, we were greeted with kindness and seated right away. The gentleman seating us pulled out the chair for our 12-year-old niece and referred to her as a princess. She was beaming from ear to ear! The food, as usual, was EXCELLENT. At the end of the evening, our waiter even offered each of us (minus the 12-year-old) a complimentary digestif. We couldn’t have been happier with the experience and would recommend Filomena Ristorante to absolutely anyone!
