Wonderful ambiance, tasteful and festive holiday decor (Easter) and efficient/friendly staff. Food was received quickly, was well=prepared, and quite enjoyable. We will definitely return again and look forward to the decor for the next holiday!

Amazing food and service as always. I liked the dividers in between tables and honestly want them to stay after the pandemic environment - it made it a little more intimate especially for a dinner for 2.

Visiting from NYC, this restaurant came highly recommended.

Basement level dining room was a surprise, decor was circa 1985. Waiters were attentive and friendly but did not seem well-aquainted with true 'Italian cuisine'.

Dishes seemed rushed and drenched in heavy cream. Calamari Fritti could have done with an additional minute or two in the fryer and were slightly soggy, the spinach stuffed mushrooms were a creme-fest - as was the mushroom Ravioli and Fettuccini with Lobster.

If you would like a walk into the past into a 1980's American version of Italian fare with giant portions, this is your place.

Enjoy!

This restaurant came highly recommended as a staple in Georgetown. Hands down the best italian I have had outside of an Italian household. Portions are large and fresh. My lasagna is the size of the entire plate. Not a complaint I could think of.

We really enjoyed our experience at Filomena’s! Despite us arriving a little late after our reservation, Dino happily accommodated us and still was able to find a spot for us to dine! The service was phenomenal and food was excellent! Our waiter was very attentive as well. Definitely recommend!

Our whole experience was amazing. Our waiter Tony helped to pick our entrees and he was spot on based on our description of our tastes. We started with the fried calamari. Then we had the Easter specials: lamb chops (for me) and seafood risotto (for my boyfriend). Then we shared the mixed fruit cheesecake. Let me just say that we had such a great experience that we booked another reservation for next month while still in the restaurant.

Location and restaurant settings great
Service good
That is all it is. Food is not worthy. I order a veal rib that looks more like a meat pizza with a bone and cover with tomato sauce and cheese. Terrible
My son had a lobster pasta and lobster where not well cooked and the pasta was not andente

While the food was very good, the noise around our table made for a less then present experience. There were two families with little children that each had an electronic device with the volume turned on high. The parents and staff did nothing about it. they had the kids at one table and they sat at a table near by. It was not the most pleasant dining experience.
