I must for anyone visiting DC/Georgetown. The place is iconic as they come. Food is outstanding. Gets very crowded, loud, and busy. Sometimes this impacts the service, but the food and atmosphere makes up for any shortcomings or delays. Make reservations one to two weeks in advance.

This place is very cute decorations for Halloween, and a standard Italian affair menu, it feels a bit touristy, and the food portions were very large is slightly crude and roughly prepared. One of the passes we order, which had lobster and was on the menu since 1983 Had Way too much sauce and way too much butter.

What a wonderful restaurant! The Halloween decorations were an amazing spectacle! We ordered the Burrata Caprese appetizer and it was delicious. I highly recommend it. We also ordered the calamari and it was light and golden. Perfectly prepared! Out entrees were flavorful and generous. The strawberry cheesecake was light and creamy. I highly recommend Filomena’s!

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!

Overall my experience was nice, I did however notice that my server did not go over the menu with my table or offer us the complimentary after dinner drinks (all of the tables around me did however receive both). The food was amazing though! I was also able to be seated 30 mins before my reservation time.

Excellent food and service, as always. Two small gripes: We were seated at a two top right next to a larger table with 2 screaming kids. We kindly asked the waiter to move us, which he promptly did. Additionally, the abundance of Halloween decorations distracted from the abaniance we have come to love. Great dinner, as always. Will be back!

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!)

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.
