A Washington institution with whimsical Christmas decorations and old world charm. The whole experience was worth the money and time, but the entrees are overpriced.

As usual the decorations were stunning. The service was excellent until they got busy, not changing our silverware or bringing new bread plates. My husband ordered eggplant parmigiana, it came too tough to eat, they ,made a 2nd one that was delicious. We had the calamari which is always tender and fresh. I had the pollo Marsala which was delicious, our guests had the shrimp risotto, very rich and the shrimp were large and super tasty.

Our meal was oustanding -- but be warned that the portions are large so leftovers seem to be the nborm. Excellent attentive staff and a most festive Christmastime atmosphere. A fantastic "event" type of restuarant. Will definitely be back.

We can never say enough good things about Filomena Ristorante! The service is top notch, making everyone feel like they are royalty! You will not find a better Italian restaurant on the eastern seaboard - Filomena is simply and honestly the best. Even if you never eat desert, do yourself a favor and eat desert at Filomena! Thank you to your staff and chefs, we come every year during the holidays, and each year is a memorable experience. Cheers!

We had 3 couples for a late Sunday lunch. A few friends have not been there before. It was quite impressive as it always is around December. The food and service was great!

Filomena was much better than expected. As you arrive you don’t expect much but as you walk down the stairs it opens up to a beautifully themed restaurant. The servers are great and care more about the guests which is great. The food is the best italian I’ve had but my that’s not saying much as I don’t typically like this cuisine. Great restaurant. Must try if in georgetown

I made the reservation months ago, two people. We were celebrating. We were sat in the back corner right next to a kitchen door. Servers kept hitting the tablecloth, my shoulder, etc. They finally moved us but was disappointed.

Do yourself a favor and order the lasagna bolognese!! It was perfection in a bite. Todd, our waiter, was knowledgeable and kind. He was attentive but not intrusive. We were celebrating our anniversary so he topped our dinner off with a traditional Italian liqueur and coffee beans for good luck. We give Filomena’s 10 STARS!!

This was our fire time going and it was our anniversary weekend. We had an afternoon reservation but was able to sit early.

There where nice parties already sitting in the restaurant.

We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay, CALAMARI ALLA SICILY, RIGATONI CON SALSICCE and LINGUINI CARDINALE . They also serve a nice basket of bread with oil with seasoning.

Everything was great and the dinner portion are huge. We carried most of our dinner home.

We can’t wait to go again!!

My linguini cardinale had lots of sweet lobster nuggets, so rich! Tiramisù was good but a bit dry. Gnocchi della mamma was delizioso! Lorenzo is an attentive cameriere. Thank you for a nice evening. Only misstep was seating us at a strange two-top. Narrow passage way b/t our table and where waiters hustle back & forth. Why not seat us at vacant corner two-top out of the way? Visiting from SF would have made my trip perfetto!
