One of the most authentically hospitable restaurants I've experienced. This will be a date night you won't forget. You'll be treated like family when you enter, and you will want to return soon. Be sure to make reservations, as tables are in high demand.
Excellent as always. A must stop place in DC!
Amazing as always. I would visit the DC area just to eat here!!!!! I am in town at least twice a year and this place is ALWAYS on my itinerary. They never disappoint and always exceed my expectations.
The food was absolutely amazing. It’s a little dark in there but it’s OK. Also the tables are really close together. But again the food is everything.
Germano was a fabulous host as was Dino. My out of town dear girlfriend felt so pampered. Thank you for a wonderful evening! Food was well recommended by Dino and Germano and it was great. I had salmon and my friend had some type of white fish that she said was the best she’s eaten!
Todo muy bien
First, EXCELLENT food!!! The food is delicious and made from scratch. Don’t miss the pasta mammas that make the pasta in the window on the street. I would say leave room for dessert but the food is so delicious you won’t be able to. The dessert is fabulous so take some home!! The decor is a crazy eclectic scheme that is not describable. It’s a MUST DO if you’re in DC.
The food & service was outstanding!
When your clients rave for day's afterwards about their dinning experience, the quality of the food, service they received while dinning, and the fact that it likely usurped other restaurants as their new favorite for when the come into town, you KNOW this is a can't miss establishment!
Thanks to Filomena's Ristorante for making my clients happy and myself a ROCKSTAR for simply knowing where to go in DC!
Great place! Amazing food, ambiance and service. Out of town friends ask to go back.
Best dish we ordered was the squid ink pasta and shrimp. Felt we were pushed into the veal chop which was served cold and not crunchy.
Do yourself a huge favor and go. Try the eggplant parmesan, any pasta dish. Wonderful service, food, ambience. This place has it down right. We will be returning as soon as we can!
Since being back from Italy, I’ve been hunting for real and delicious Italian food and this is it!! Must have when visiting DC! I will come back to DC just to eat here again! It has a very quirky atmosphere decorated all up for holidays and you can watch the woman make the pasta through the window! Such a neat place! 10/10 definitely recommend!
One if the BEST meals of our lives! Husband had the Osso Bucca, and it fell off the bone with just a thought. The risotto was creamy and delicious. I had the seafood and cheese ravioli in a lobster sauce it was beyond words! I highly recommend it!
The best Italian meal I've ever had! The food was fresh and authentic and delicious.
Food was delicious and huge portions. I highly recommend the Lobster Cardinale.
BEST MEAL OF MY LIFE
Such a great Georgetown staple! I love bringing folks here and the old school Italian vibe is wonderful. Portion sizes are huge and I recommend sharing. Great spot!
Beautifully over-the-top experience in every way--attentive service, massive portion size, incredible flavor. Perfect for a special occasion. The warm and friendly atmosphere makes the whole experience an absolute delight, and you really can't go wrong with that menu--I tried some of everyone at my table's dish and couldn't get over how hearty and delicious everything was. Already looking for another excuse to go!
Filomena's is a yearly DC tradition and you never disappoint! Thank you for always being consistent and wonderful!
Recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Only regret is that we didn't go sooner in our DC stay so we could have enjoyed the leftovers.
Manicotti, bread,strawberry cheesecake fabulous!! Try to eat here every visit to D.C. - wish they could add elevator or back entrance for handicapped. ❤️ the good and adorable decorations!
Never a disappointment - bring your appetite! Portions are generous and the homemade pasta is perfection! Manga.
I always make it a stop whenever visiting DC.
It’s a shame that the service was so slow when we brought out of town guests this time
Best Italian in the DC area, number one place to bring visitors to the area
Unbelievable 5 star quality with fresh ingredients and homemade pasta, even the ravioli. Unmatched service. The best quality, yet huge portions. One doesn't usually go with the other. Here it does! My wife's dinner made three meals with she and I splitting the leftovers. We had 4 at dinner and everyone had a fantastic meal. The deserts were absolutely beautiful, but we were so full, we could not even share one. Next time we are definitely getting a desert!! There was a great wine list that had several excellent, yet reasonably options to choose from. In terms of atmosphere, Filomena is great for a special dinner, date or anniversary. Book your reservations well in advance as it is probably the most popular restaurant in Georgetown.
Wonderful dining experience!
The food is always amazing! The decor a bit tacky, but other than that, the food is worth it!
Everything was absolutely great. Had a wonderful time. The food was fabulous and authentic. The wine was superb. The entrees for excellent. The appetizers were exquisite. Look forward to coming back on other occasions. Well worth the drive. Waiter was great. Steps not so great. Thank you for a great experience
Seriously the best Italian food in the district.
The Art of Meal....Simple!
Drinks were wonderful and the bartenders had great personalities. Food was everything we heard it was and more!!! The desserts were unbelievable. Can't wait to go back.
Filomenas continues to be our favorite DC restaurant. So authentic!
This was fantastic! Our reservation was for 3 and we showed up with 5. No problem at all - they accommodated us with pleasure. Food was amazing. Will definitely return.
Everything from the moment we walked in was fantastic! The attention to detail and hospitality was truly excellent and made it a top notch experience on top of the absolutely, hands down delicious food! My husband is the biggest critic of Italian food and thinks no place outside of New England can do red sauce right - and this place blew even his home town favorite out of the water! It’s a must try!
I was so disappointed with my experience which I looked forward to and saved for my birthday, today. Our server had a team meeting -after delivering our drinks. We waited almost 25 minutes for someone to acknowledge us. Once we prompted a Manager, a server came and render absolutely NO quality or care in his customer service. The food arrived, luke warm at best. While my daughter and I were still eating, the now over zealous server offered a to go for my husband. At that point he brought a to go for all and the check. During the Sambuca serving, another server came and quickly removed the bottles mid drink. I have never felt so dissatisfied and unwelcome. Unfortunately, I would not recommend a similar dining experience at Filomena’s to anyone!!!
Absolutely superb. The most amazing Italian cuisine .
Our meal was delicious. Service was terrific. The Resturant is PACKED with tables and people. I would skip this spot if you only have 1 or 2 days.
Phenomenal food! Make you reservation early. Super staff
Food was excellent and our server, Leo, was very attentive and kind. Lights were a little too dimmed in the restaurant but my girlfriend and I still had an amazing 1 year anniversary.
