Although Filomena is a little pricey, the food and experience are worth the cost. From the complimentary bread to the homemade desserts and everything in between, Filomena is one of the best spots in Washington.

The food was authentically Tuscan. The service was careful and attentive. Be sure to make a reservation as the seats go quickly.

I got a stomach bug as soon as I got home. My GF ordered the Gniocchi, and I ordered the Vodka Chicken Pasta. It was absolutely delicious during the meal - don't get me wrong. But when I went home, an hour later the stomach pains started, and have been going on for the last two days. Not fun. Most likely my last time at Filomena.

Service wasn’t very good. Waiters are rushing to serve you (which is good) but they also rush to get you out. Poured water very fast (we got splashed), rushed to pick up the menu, and all looked like in a hurry. We understand the restaurant was full and they were trying to attend all the tables, but we felt like they wanted us out ASAP for the next customers. Food was good, but expensive. Should have more entrees

If you have to opportunity to go, GO!! I have eaten seafood my entire life and here are the best scallops and calamari I have ever had; and that is saying a lot considering my love for seafood and how many places I have tried in my lifetime. Also, I'm not big on Italian at all, but my wife is. She claimed this was the best Italian restaurant we have been to yet. Don't overlook this gem!

Food Was terrible!

I really do not mind paying top dollar for quality but not for quantity.
The pasta was grossly over-cooked and the sauce tasted like it came out of a can of Ronzoni
It was a memorable experience but for all the WRONG reasons.

We were seated by the entrance to lobby, it was extremely busy and noisy, the service was rushed, the food was fatty and luke warm. The food was average and comparable to a chain restaurant. We looked forward to this celebration and we were disappointed.

Was highly recommend but left a little disappointed. My “seafood pasta” with black linguini was very heavy in oil. Cheese ravioli was very good, chicken ravioli was okay. Waiters were very nice but seemed rushed, not overly friendly. Would try again just to see if first impression was off

Wait servers should let diners know that pasta dishes are huge and should be split between 2 adults. We found the prices super high. Maybe reduce prices and portion sizes?
