    Was good. Can see why it’s so popular for tourists. But didn’t feel like a tourist trap.

    I love supporting the farmers cooperative. The food is amazing. The service is great. Upstairs is quieter than downstairs. Everyone I’ve taken here has loved it.

    We had a lovely table for our special occasion lunch right by the big window. The six of us ordered multiple dishes from the hot and cold mezze and enjoyed every single one. My son said the chicken kabob was “the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life.” The zucchini pancakes, roasted Brussels sprouts and Labneh with zaatar were standouts for us, and the hot puffy bread of course. The pides had good flavor but just a tad too much cheese on top for us. Service was very friendly and efficient. Thank you for making our lunch memorable.

    I have been going to this restaurant for 25 years. The quality continue to be incredible and consistent. We had the burrata starter -- yum! Best we have ever had. We also had the short rib pasta (which has been on the menu for as long as I have going there) and the Chilean sea bass special. Both were mouthwatering. The portions were huge and we had to take half to go. If you haven't gone to Filomena, make it happen! You won't regret having handmade pasta from this iconic restaurant.
