Filomena is perfect for the business luncheon or the elegant candle light dinner.
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.
Special family reunion
The best Italian in the area, by far. Save room for dessert, or if you don't make sure to get some to go.
Amazing food, endless great menu options, incredibly attentive service
The portions were huge and so delicious just sorry I couldn’t take my leftovers home since I was visiting.
As always, SUPER
Fun pre Easter decorations.
As we age portions are seeming larger
Always the best food, service & ambiance
Excellent food. One of the best Italian restaurants I ever been to. I really loved how the waiter brought over sambuca and amaretto for the table with dessert. It was a really unique idea. I would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone, and I will absolutely be back next time i’m in the DMV.
Love this place
Early dinner on a Thursday was exceptional, make a reservation. Mama makes the pasta in the front window, a flight of stairs takes you into the jewel box of a restaurant. It was decorated for Easter when we went, and apparently the enthusiasm is sprinkeled about for every holiday - it was over the top but charming. Warm bread and focaccia with oil and herbs are delivered immediately, wine selections were decent, we had the house made buratta caprisi appitizer which was sooo creamy. We split veal marsella - fantastic, and garlic broccoli which was cooked to perfection. We skipped desert but they looked amazing - when you enter the restaurant they have a display of all the offerings. We were then treated to a surprise of a decanter of Zambucca and Amaretto to freely help ourselves to, on the house. What a treat! The service was excellent. There is also a small bar, seats maybe 10. I can't wait to return! Go soon!
I only make it to DC once a year, and Filomena’s is the dining experience I go to every single time. The staff takes care of you like you’re family, and the food is delicious!! I had to have a moment of silence at the table for the homemade Burrata. It’s that good. One of my friends wanted something that wasn’t on the menu, and they made it for her - she had enough leftovers for the next 3 days. 😂 Go eat here!!
This was our first visit to Filomena. This is hands down the best Italian we've had. As for special occasions, the staff takes every chance to help make the meal and evening unique. Plenty of vegetarian options as well creative choice for all dietary preferences. We will be sure to go back.
If you are looking for a true Italian dining experience, Filomena is the restaurant for you. The only better Italian food, I have eaten, was made by wife and her Sicilian grandmother. The service is outstanding from explanation of dishes to everyday conversations. It is like talking to a family member during dinner. I always enjoy the theme decorations during the year. Around my birthday, it is Christmas and around my wife's birthday, this time of the year, it is Easter. It is fun to try and count how many Easter Rabbits and Eggs adorn the restaurant. The meals are large and pricey, but we usually take home more than enough food for a second dinner, as we always split an appetizer, salad, and dessert. Don't expect Olive Garden quality and pricing. We like to go early in the evening, when the crowd is smaller, as the open room dining areas can get loud when the restaurant fills up.
This place has an incredible story and incredible food! I would definitely return. One thing I will say is that the dishes are definitely family style even though they're not listed as such so be sure to order appropriately.
Our meal was delicious and we loved the atmosphere!!
Outstanding Food, Outstanding waiter in Luigi. . .outstanding evening.
What else is there to say!
Our waiter Nicola was great. Best sever we have had in years.
Outstanding service, huge portions, excellent food.
The food and service were exceptional.
The portions are enormous. I would recommend sharing.
A salad and an entree will easily feed two hungry people.
