Filomena is perfect for the business luncheon or the elegant candle light dinner.
Food was great and the portions were huge! My husband had a sea food dish that could have easily been split by three hungry adults. I ordered two side dishes and couldn't finish them. The cheesecake was to die for and one slice was more than enough for two people. They also brought complimentary after dinner drinks of sambuca and amaretto. It's very noisy and crowded because it's so popular. So service is a bit slow. But we would go again in a heartbeat.
Authentic old school Italian—- massive menu...enormous portions...superb presentation! Felt like Grandma musta been in the kitchen. And what a room. Decorated in our case for Easter. Can’t imagine a more festive atmosphere.
The place is a bit eclectic. There were doilies one the table
like my grandma’s dresser. The calamari was too salty.
The rice ball didn’t have much flavor. The mixed seafood pasta was
Much more pasta than seafood and mostly mussels. The scallops in the pasta dish was tender and some of the next scallops I’ve ever eaten. The chicken parmigiana was moist and tasty. We also had lasagna and a vegetable dish with risotto that had way too much wine. The service was very good.
Outstanding! Ambiance was wonderful. It was a great memory. We will be back!
Our first time at Filomena but not our last. What a wonderful place and the food was delicious. Our server James was great and we loved the after dinner drinks.
We had to wait 30 minutes past our 7 pm reservation to get our table, but everything was outstanding after that!
This place is always amazing. It's a staple in Gerogetown. Definitely recommend.
Food was delicious. EAster decorating was over the top. Borderline creepy
My food was amazingly delicious and the portions were huge
What an awesome place.
Simply the best.
Amazing wait staff & delicious food with large portions! The shrimp risotto was the best risotto I’ve ever had! The sambuca & amaretto at the end was a sweet touch! Seeing someone making fresh gnocchi in the store front was charming and all the bunnies & decor for Easter was top notch!
My friend and I are in town for business and were told we HAVE to go to Filomena, and my goodness was it the best advice! Everything was scrumptious and the service was top notch. Each time we visit DC we will be stopping by! I just wish we had room for dessert!!
I’m sorry. I think you you’ll need a stent after eating this food. High in fat and sugar. The tomato sauce is sweet 🤮
I love going to Filomena. It is like going to my Mother's house for a holiday or Sunday dinner. Very comforting.
This is a go-to restaurant for us at Easter and Christmas. The food is amazing, service tops, and the decorations are over the top.
Great food! Great service! Just a LOT of Easter decor I hasn’t expecting. Overall amazing experience and will recommend to friends in the future visiting!
Amazing as always
Amazing food. Fantastic waitstaff. Wonderful experience overall.
Great food!! A bit loud but very enjoyable
Amazing food and overall experience. Pricey, but we knew that going in. Will be a regular location to celebrate big life events from now on.
Hands down the best Italian food in the DMV area. I'm always blown away with how good it is. Even after having been there so many times
Great service, great food, and very cool decorations!!! We really had a fun night sharing laughs with the people next to us and the wait staff.
I come from out of town often. I make reservations way in advance. For the “Filomena” experience. I have been doing so for over a decade. I plan to be back this coming July and will make my reservation soon.
No other Italian Restaurant compares to Filomena. The staff add their friendliness to the supreme culinary experience, Bravo a thousand times.
Easter decoration overbearing and cheapens the atmosphere
This restaurant came highly recommended by hotel staff at The Darcy. Exceptional food, great waitstaff in a beautiful setting. I can’t say enough about this five star restaurant and certainly would come back next time I’m in the area.
Waiter was ok but not very personable.
Great family meal. I had the lasagna (again) and it is just as delicious every time. The wait staff is usually great but or waiter this time was just ok. Everyone loved their meals - meatballs were great. Save room if you can for desert. Four Leches cake is the best.
Nice restaurant very dark
The restaurant was decorated beautifully for Easter. House wine was delicious as was the bread and oil. The pasta was slightly expensive but worth it because of the huge portion they serve you and it was delicious! I had enough for 3 meals! The service was fabulous, always available if we needed something. The chocolate cake for dessert was unbelievably good. I will definitely be back!
One of my favorite restaurants in DC area. I took a colleague and we both ended up ordering the same thing - Vitello Saltimbocca. Very, very good. We each ordered a different dessert to sample the offerings: cannoli, and mixed berry cheesecake. OMG. The complimentary after dinner drink (amaretto or anisette) is something you will remember, a very nice touch. We could hardly walk out of there.
This was my 6th or 7th visit. I've never gotten anything that I didn't like. Even basic dishes like chicken parm or lasagna, that I've ordered in the past, have been absolutely super. You will make a memory if you eat here.
I travel a lot for work and have had the opportunity to eat in amazing restaurants all over America, but Filomena is far and away my favorite restaurant. It’s a must is you are visiting the DC area.
OMG....This has to be my favorite ultimate fabulous Italian Restaurant of all times.
This is my 3rd visit... and over the past 20 years...it's what I remember as nothing less than amazing.
The restaurant was not what I expected. It was very noisy and the tables were so close together even the wait staff had trouble getting through. The Easter decorations we a bit much, they were everywhere. The ceilings are low and they had baskets and bunnies hanging from the ceilings, it felt like they were on top of your head. I had pasta with a meat sauce and my husband had calamari over a salad. The mail course was ok. For dessert we had their version of a cannoli and it was fantastic!!
Absolutely! Not a chance you're going home hungry!
Excellent food and service. First rate wine list.
Very enjoyable dining experience highly recommend this restaurant for people who like hearty Italian food. Noise level a bit high because we were there at a peak time, hard to hear conversation over all the noise.
However, noise did not diminish dining experience. Food consistently very good. Decor quirky but fun.
Best Italian restaurant food, experience and service! The recipes always delight and the portions are meant for that truly Home style experience! The incredible service with so many guests is a site to behold and at Easter the decor is so charming and authentic. Truly love our trips to DC just to ensure a night at Filomena
The food is over priced and not authentic. This is American Italian food.. (ie Maggianos/Olive Garden). Heavy sauces. Huge portions. We were expecting something else given the recommendations that we got and the price of the food. Very loud. Very crowded.
Waiter was excellent in assisting us with wine and dinner selection.
