We love this place and eat here every time we are in town. Portions are large and we always have leftovers to enjoy later. Be sure to plan ahead and make a reservation a day or two before... this place is busy!

We had an amazing meal at Filomena! The seafood pasta was quite impressive. The service was impeccable. We would definitely return. (The Halloween decorations might be scary for younger patrons, however. )

Excellent NY style Italian cuisine! Our server, Tony, made us feel like we were friends, family and customers for years although it was our first time. Back that up with superb fresh food and wine, and we could not have been happier! Bring your huge appetite, or share. (we mean it!)

High end restaurant with very large portions. A special occasion place for sure. Hor d’oeurves were outstanding. Veal dish was disappointing and underwhelming for price, thus the rating. Service was outstanding!

It was the last night of our DC trip. So glad we chose Filomena’s to end our trip. From the food to service to ambiance, everything was wonderful. We are all wanting to return for another meal real soon.

Fantastic dining experience. On the louder end because of how popular it is, but easily the best Italian food I’ve ever had and phenomenal service. My server shook my hand at the end of it, Ive never had that kind of personal experience at a restaurant. I will and have already recommended it to people.

We were staying in Landover for the Redskins game and decided we wanted to go to downtown Washington DC for dinner. After looking online we thought this looked like a good Italian place based on others reviews. The ambiance was amazing - completely decorated for Halloween which we were not expecting - very cool though. The prices were also not listed online so we were surprised by how expensive everything was. Food was good, but my husband is a chef and we both agree everything was definitely not worth how much it's priced. I also ran out of water a few times which did not get refilled as quickly as I would've liked. Overall, would recommend.

Everything was great but when my friend and I ordered 2 Familia dinners the waiter should have told us one would be more than enough. Felt like it was way too much food too even look at never mind eat. How can one woman possibly eat a pound of pasta two meatballs,two sausages and ribs?? Kind of ruined the meal. We had bottle wine and said too. Made me feel like trying to bring the tab up when we would have had dessert and coffees if could have
