Filomena is perfect for the business luncheon or the elegant candle light dinner.
Great service. Everything was perfect. Felt safe. Great experience for 16th Birthday.
I was very impressed with their methods of preventing COVID-19 spread
Best italian I’ve had. Highly recommend if in the mood for fine dining in Georgetown. Everything homemade and so delicious.
Five star unforgettable dining experience! Our server Peter was outstanding. The Management was attentive and the culinary authentic Italian dishes were incredibly flavorful. Talented team of chefs! Dessert was to die for. Our fave restaurant in the DC area. Can’t wait to go back.
Fantastic restaurant even during the pandemic. Their meatballs are to die for and that’s just the beginning of a culinary awakening. Even with a VIP in the building, service was stellar and felt like coming home. The only suggestion is to have a smaller dessert bite as I felt like I was wasting food.
The special occasion was Filomena's return after the idiocy of the forced shutdown. They have gone to great lengths to safeguard everyone (including sterilizing the place with UV light after hours). One improvement is the addition of translucent partitions to the booths-it makes them cozier. We're really glad this wonderful place is open again.
Friends visiting from out of town
Always amazing food and phenomenal service. Thank you for another great night out.
Always excellent food and service. My favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Can’t wait to go back
Great service and food in a lovely setting with flowers and private tables.
This was my first time here after hearing nothing but good reviews. The food was amazing! The service was even better. With all this Covid going on we were nervous about dining in but all sanitary precautions were taken. They even gave us some cleaning wipes to clean our phones or silverware. They really went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and safe. I will definitely be back. Thank you
Incredible service, classic italian campiness, great wine. Would absolutely go back!
I looked forward to visiting this restaurant for quite some time. Living in coastal Virginia didn't allow me to visit sooner. My wife and I were watching Wheel of Fortune (Washington week) when at the end of the show Vana and Pat revealed this Italian restaurant. I immediately said to my wife ( log this one). So the next time I had the opportunity to visit the Washington area, I considered a must to dine at Filomena's. I loved the idea of entering to the lower level from the street. Felt like some old Italian restaurants in NY I had visited years ago. The decor felt like I was back in Italy when I visited there. Everything on the menu seemed to reach out for me to order it. I decided on LA FAMIGLIA, since it sounded like what I attempt to make at home from time to time. The first thing I taste is always how good the sauce is compared to the way I make it. Much to my surprise and my family is that it was as good if not better than my own recipe. That was a first. Next was the meatballs. Again, outstanding. Everyone in the family thoroughly enjoyed what we each ordered. The portions of each of our entries was more than we could handle at one sitting. We decided to box what was left and continue to enjoy the moment again tomorrow at home. One thing, we couldn't leave without sampling was the deserts, so we took them to go. My wife was a bit hesitant about ordering the Connoli since she has yet to have one she really enjoyed since we moved from New Orleans many years ago. I said, go ahead, order it this may be different considering where we were eating. Much to her surprise, she was extremely surprised not only with the oval shape instead of a tubular look, but the texture and taste of the whole experience. Well done! She's sometimes hard to please. The service was first class all the way. We wanted for nothing. It was like we were the only table he had to service. Just Great. Bottom line is, I now understand why so many of the"Who's Who" dined there in the past.
Food was outstanding. They restaurant was sanitary with the staff wearing masks and gloves. We were separated from the next table via a plexiglass window.
It’s always a wonderful lunch or dinner at Filomena’s. The restaurant just opened on Monday and my husband and I had lunch on Wednesday. The ambiance is like no other restaurant and the food is over the top. You will never find desserts to begin to compare to Filomena’s. I can’t say enough.
One of our favorite places in DC
Always a great experience.
We are frequent diners at Filomena and we love it! So consistently amazing. Portions are huge - so share! We enjoy Filomena so much.
Food was delicious, desserts were made well, and service was great. Definitely returning!
Love their pasta, especially the lobster ravioli speciality with the cardinale sauce. There was a great deal of lobster in the ravioli. The portions are massive. The Easter decorations were over the top, as with all festive holidays. It’s quirky and charming. I’ve always had an issue with how dark the restaurant is, however, and a tad bit of light would likely make my experience more enjoyable.
The best homemade style pasta I ever had at a restaurant! Make sure you try the Dessert
My fiance and I had lunch at Filomena's after a day of striking out on museums etc being closed because of the pandemic scare. The staff were all amazing and welcoming to us, especially our waiter. I wish I remembered his name because he was top notch. The food was fresh and outstanding. The atmosphere is lovely, however it was a bit overkill on the Easter bunny decorations. I highly recommend Filomena's!
Beautifully appointed dining room, excellent service and great food.
Always a great experience at Filomena! Always bringing out of town guests here and they always leave happy and full!
Love this place!! Have been having delicious meals here since the early 1980s. Food and service are always outstanding. My daughter and I dropped in for an early lunch after some shopping in Georgetown. We both had the gnocchi and it was delicious!!
I highly recommend. Best Italian food in DC. We always make a point to go here when in DC.
This is my third time eating at Filomena I love it.
Great place...hugely enjoyable. I strongly recommend this restaurant.
Filomena is a must in Washington DC. Great food is always served by attentive servers and it is so quaint and adorable. Love the food and look forward to going there every time I am in DC
We had a wonderful evening. The food was excellent and Peter the Server, absolutely fantastic! Thank you!
Whenever I'm there, which is about 4-5times a year, I'm always thoroughly impressed with the consistency of the food and the service!!
2nd time here and they are Delish!!! Taste like your Grandmom made growing up 😋 portions are huge, we had Chicken Parmigiana , La Famiglia(meatballs are huge and a rib comes in the dish) My son had the Rigatoni in Vodka sauce with Chicken!! Let me tell you about the Cannoli O M G!!! It was rich And enough to share and just the bomb!!! Oh almost forgot the Focaccia Bread that comes with it Also huge!! For those 21 and over you get Complimentary Amaretto & Sambuca at the end 👌🏼2 words “JUST GO”
Great Italian food!!! Make reservations early because they fill up fast
gonna miss this place after I move out of DC soon!
The food was absolutely great! I will be back soon!
What a great spot! There was a little lady in the front window making pasta by hand. We ordered the lasagna, gnocchi, and caesar salad- everything was delicious. The waiters were friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was fabulous. It was cozy and decorated!
Each time we visit Filomena‘s, the place is packed. Great energy and conversation in the restaurant. Sometimes the noise level can be a bit more than you might want, but there’s always a positivity in the air. Restaurant was completely decorated for Easter and our server was funny, attentive and professional.
Portions are enormous and everyone seems to leave with a bag of leftovers for another meal. The Bolognese sauce is delicious. Selection of desserts is large and everyone in our party sampled something different which was tasty.
Prices tend to be on the higher side at Filomena’s but you do get quite a bit for your money. This visit was the first for one of our family members, who was quite impressed with the caliber of the food and the experience.
Fantastic food and amazing service! The Linguini Cardinale is the best meal I have ever had in my life.
