Seriously the best Italian food in the district. I don’t know how they make their bolognese sauce so amazing but I have to order it every time. Been many times before and look forward to returning soon.

Everyone should go here. Lived up to its reputation. The decorations were for Valentine’s Day and very festive. Plenty of wait to staff to take care you of you. Food was fabulous! We had the 20oz veal chop, superb, the seafood pasta, outstanding, and the beef shank tortellini, out of this world. Loved everything he had. Will definitely be back!!

This was our second trip to Filomena's for a special occasion and just like before, it did not disappoint. Words cannot describe how incredible the food was - from the appetizers to the dessert: 5 stars. Not only that, but we went on Valentine's Day and the place was PACKED. Regardless, we had exceptional service with an entire team attending to our needs and every one of them met. My water glass was never empty, we never felt rushed, and the personality/spirit of our waiters was top notch. This is not a cheap restaurant but it is 100% worth every penny.

We went to celebrate Valentine’s Day early. The food was amazing and despite it being extremely busy the service was good. The down side to it being busy was that It was pretty loud and we had to wait despite having reservations.

We went for my wife's birthday, but we try and go a few times a year. Never had a bad meal and the staff sang her "Happy Birthday" when we had dessert. Didn't get to see the "Pasta Mamas" this time (my son's favorite reason to go).

Filomena was simply amazing. Even though the place was packed, our reservation was on time, the service made us feel like we were the only clients in the restaurant and the food, the food is absolutely exquisite. Hands down, the best restaurant in DC, can't wait to go back!

Large portions of everything. No need for a salad or appetizer to get filled up.
The pasta dishes were popular in our group. Probably because the pasta is home made. Watch the pasta mommas in action.
I had the special rock fish with crabmeat on top. It was wonderful.
Must leave room for dessert, as they are all terrific.

So incredible! I’ve heard about Filomena for awhile and finally got to go for an early Valentine’s dinner with my boyfriend. Every part of the meal was fresh and delicious - it truly felt as though it came straight from a kitchen in Italy. The ambiance was also great - it was packed but we felt like we had plenty of space and the lighting still made it feel intimate. I can’t wait to go back!
