Great service and incredible food! We showed up at Halloween so the romance was slightly eclipsed by the skeleton of Elvis on top of our table.

At first, the host sat us right by the entrance. Wasn’t a fan of sitting somewhere with a lot of foot traffic, but after that was resolved the meal was great as always.

This place is a tourist trap. It’s like the Rainforest cafe of Italian restaurants. When you walk in the door you are greeted with a showcase window that has an actress dressed as an old Italian mother filling ravioli. It was so loud I couldn’t hear my husband across the table, filled with tacky decor, and the food was overpriced and gross. I would put this restaurant on at with Olive Garden. I’ve had a better meal at chain Italian restaurants and pizzerias. I am shocked by the ratings it receives and the prices!! Beware!!!

This was our first time dining at Filomena, and it was lovely! The atmosphere alone is worth experiencing. The food is authentic, delicious and large portions. You will pay a price, but the pasta dishes are large enough for 2 people to split. This would have been good to know in advance, but at least we left with lots of leftovers! Also, they take gluten allergy seriously and offer plenty of options.

Food was delicious! I ordered a smoked chicken and four cheese ravioli which was that day's nightly special. Others in my party ordered the Gnocchi with Broccoli and the Brisket Mushroom ravioli dishes. All portions were extremely generous and we were able to share the three plates. We also ordered the calimari which was very fresh and not fried in a red sauce with capers and the sausage with peppers appetizers. Both were delicious but definitely did not need the appetizers based on the quantity of the other food. Our waiter, Ramiro, was very friendly and quick to serve us. They also offered us a complimentary after dinner drink of Amaretto or Sambuca. Entrees are a little pricey ($35-$40 per dish) but we were expecting to pay a bit more for the experience. Would highly recommend dining at Filomena to others!

We were traveling through DC and love this place. The food is outstanding but be careful because the portions are huge. I try to go here every time we come here. I can’t say enough good things about it and everything is homemade. This is a MUST if you come here!

I went on a date here and I already cannot wait to come back. The service was exceptional from the moment we walked in. The recommendations from our server were all fantastic. The quality of the food was amazing, very large portion sizes, and the Tres Leches cake was perfectly moist that I paired with an espresso.

See you all again soon!

The food was incredible and is one of the few places I've been to that surpassed the hype that's been repeated in these reviews. The burrata and the calamari apps were the best and the veal was ridiculously good. Cant recommend this place enough

Made reservations. We were greeted and seated immediately. Decor was full-on Holloween themed - kind of odd for mid-September. Table was somewhat in a heavily travelled aisle. We asked for assistance in selecting an Italian wine. We are knowledgeable about California wines, and tried to express our tastes accordingly. Wine recommendation was not at all “big and bold” as described. But we drank it. Salad was excellent. We shared - plenty. Entrees were also excellent and more than we could eat. Aperitif was perfect. All in all a good experience.

Fun place, great ambiance. Crazy portions of food, but that does explain the prices. 35/40 dollars for a pasta dish, definitely to share with at least two people.

I was amazed at the quality of the food. Best gnocchi i have ever tasted including in Italy. The atmosphere was hysterical with early Halloween decorations. But again - just go for the food. Prepare yourself for large properties.

The food was really good and portion sizes are large. The service was excellent. The restaurant was seasonally decorated which was kind of cool, though unexpected. Tables are close in traditional Italian fashion. Noise level is kind of high and, due to the close tables, having a private conversation can be difficult. Overall a very enjoyable experience and I will return.

Real deal Italian food! Portions are huge, always enough to take home for another meal. Everything from the fresh bread to dessert is delicious. Service is always good, waitstaff very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Interior always decorated for holidays. On our visit was heavily decorated for Halloween, very nice job. We plan on going back for Christmas decorations
