The food was so delicious. As others have stated in previous reviews the portions are large so you may want to consider sharing a meal. Our waiter was helpful with recommending a dish which we appreciated since the menu is large. He had great energy and we enjoyed the service as much as the food. The only detraction is the tables are very close together and it was a challenge squeezing into our seats. Over all we loved it and can’t wait to return on our next visit to DC.

Worth the trip, especially for the special cannoli. Reminded me of fond memories of little Italy in NYC. The Sunday sauce is outstanding. We will be making this restaurant on our regular rotation.

The food was delicious, and the service was great! This is the best Italian food I've had in the US. The ambience was very lively, but at times it was a bit hard to hear people talking at our table.

Food and service were excellent. However, it was incredibly loud in the main dining room and very difficult to carry on a conversation across our table.

The risotto was hard! Unacceptable. Spending $40 for shrimp risotto and the risotto is not edible is not ok.

It's a tourist trap. Main dishes were quite good, but overall not work the fuss and cheezeness of the place. I would definitively avoid.

My friends and I had an amazing experience at Filomena. We ordered the calamari, the gnocchi, and the vodka pasta (all of them were delicious -- great portion sizes, flavorful, and arrived at our table quickly). For dessert, we had the tiramisu, which was wonderful (creamy, light, and not too sweet). Filomena is truly one of my favorite restaurants in Georgetown. We will definitely return!

The waiter asked us if we wanted water. He asked it so fast. We didn’t realize it was $7 water bottle until the bill

The restaurant itself had a comfortable feel and the waiters and staff were all friendly so we were super excited. The main issue I guess I had was I didn’t feel as though it was classic Italian food, rather my family and I found the food disappointing as it came suspiciously fast for fresh food, and it never really tasted super fresh. The portion and plating as well

Our waiter was great - had a good sense of humor, not too intrusive, not too distant. The food was good, if a bit heavily sauced, and the portions were incredibly large - easily two servings per person, so it felt like a good value. The desserts were delicious! The only downside was the space felt like it hadn't been renovated since they opened in 1983 - very dated interiors - mirrored walls, very dark, dim lighting, not taking nearly enough advantage of the windows onto the canal. Feels like an old-school "Italian" restaurant. And reservations, including 2 changes we requested, were a breeze!

Came here for a birthday celebration and it was perfect— the food, service, and ambiance. It was a bit loud as the dining area was packed, but definitely worth a visit.

The service was top notch. We started off with 4 appetizers, because it was too hard to choose just one. They were all delicious. Food portions are rather large, could have definitely split a meal. It was extremely nice to finally have good service in Washingtom DC. Up until this meal, service as been medicore.

The food is absolutely incredible but be warned the atmosphere is less than ideal. The tables are extremely close together and it is super loud, It’s very hard to have any conversation.

However, amazing food and really great service from the staff.

It's hard to imagine better Italian food. The service was excellent. The wine list reasonably priced and the desserts were creative, particularly the cannoli. It was a bit noisy, but not so much that having a conversation was difficult. This will be one of our regular go to restaurants.

The food is Fantastic! And the service is superior. The restaurant was packed on a Monday night and more people arrived at 9pm. I must have heard “Happy Birthday” sung 6 times. I would say due to the buzz, not a great place to hold a conversation. However, I recommend this restaurant 100% for any other opportunity!!!!

The foods are phenomenal as usual. The waiter (Peter) was good and he was kind to sang a birthday to me. I was slightly disappointed that he did not offer us the drinks at the end (peppermint and licorice // I forgot what they are called). I know it’s a tradition at Filomena, otherwise that may change that I wasn’t aware of. The light is very dim/red that’s difficult to take good pictures of foods. The noise level is extremely loud.
