El Filomena es perfecto para un almuerzo de negocios, pero también para una elegante cena a la luz de las velas.
Our waitress Alberto went above and beyond. Recommended some great entrees and wine. His attention was top notch. For friendly and attentive servers like Alberto is one of the reasons we keep coming to Filomena. The food was delicious as usual.
Peter was so attentive; A sincere and genuine waiter who loved his job. Looking forward to seeing him again!
The only thing we didn’t like was the disturbing and gory Halloween decorations.
Delicious as always - fourth time going to Filomena. Just got an assortment of appetizers for lunch with family. The meatballs, arancini, and fresh burrata mozzarella were amazing!
Best restaurant I've ever been to-- perfect food, service and ambience- don't hesitate, you won't be sorry!
Authentic Italian, a great experience and excellent service.
Food was delicious, portions large, staff friendly, experience perfect.
Awesome as always. We got to sit in the back in the family kitchen. Everything was awesome
It is a most special place. The attention to detail and personal interest in your enjoyment of the experience is clearly their priority. The seasonal decorations are worth a visit all by themselves. But beware, the food is incredible and the portions are crazy generous.
Great food that tastes like you are in Italy. Big portions. Should have shared everything. We had the rice balls to start and they were delicious. We each had a salad. Mine was the Cesar and it came with 2 garlic cheese toasts. It was very good but too big. My husband had the spinach, strawberry,
Candied pecans and goat cheese salad. It was also plentiful and good. He had the shrimp risotto with lobster sauce and it was the best he had ever had. Very creamy. I had the Sunday sauce with 2 meatballs 2 sausages and 2 short ribs. It was amazing but again too much. We shared the strawberry cheesecake and it was very creamy. The dinner was capped off with amaretto shots. The whole dining experience was excellent. Will definitely recommend to family and friends traveling to DC
The food was amazing. Everyone loved what they ordered. Service was excellent. Portions are HUGE. Way too much for any of us to finish, and since we were from out of town, we couldn't take home leftovers. Next visit, we will definitely share. We got three desserts and shared them - they were also amazing. We love eating here whenever we're in DC.
Such an exciting time, best Italian food I've ever had. We went two nights in a row. They end the night by putting a carafe of sambuca and a carafe of amaretto on your table and say basically go for it, all free. Never seen anything like that.
Incredible food. Only downside was the decor for Halloween was not kid friendly.
We came on a recommendation and I’m so glad we did. What an amazing
Hell yes, I would recommend Filomena to my friends and family. Maria was exceptional- I will always come back. Even if it’s just for an appetizer.
The food was well prepared and true to the central-southern Italian cuisine. However, the restaurant was Very Noisy with tables extremely close to each other on a Saturday evening. Trying to have a conversation with my guests was a contest to who could yell louder to overcome the voice of the people at the next table. Not the right ambiance to enjoy food and company. I don't think I will go back and certainly I will not invite people to eat at Filomena.
Impossible to talk with your partner . Loud , loud , loud . The portions are ridiculously super sized . Nothing Italian with this place . The left overs can feed a lot of hungry people.... even for US standards ( super sizing ) gross

Literally the best food I have every tasted and the experience in general is worth it!
Great food and service
Favorite place to go when I go to DC. I always take people that have never been there and every time they really enjoy it.
We had such a wonderful time, Peter was just fantastic he made our experience one more time incredible.
Thanks Nico for your excellent service...
Phenomenal place! Love going whenever we visit
An amazing unique place. I loved the pasta "mama" in the front window making pastas. The ambiance is over the top. They are really into holidays and it was if all of Halloween was placed in their restaurant. The server also said they decorate for most holidays. The food like every one else has said - great, but one serving is almost for 4! Service was wonderful.
Halloween decor a little early was off putting. Service was above average but could’ve been better. Food and drink were incredible. They seem to overfill restaurant which leads to high noise levels and some discomfort moving around
What a unique and fun experience! The seasonal decor/decoration is over the top...which maybe too much for some, but the service, food and overall experience was excellent. Portions are huge so take home is a likely outcome. Our waiter Daniel was a true professional. A must if you love classic Italian!
Best pasta ever! Great ambience, amazing food and good service.
Great waiter Peter. Food is too rich, service was way too quick feel like rushing to finish our dinner. The restaurant is very dark.
THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN THE DMV! I CAN NEVER EAT ALL OF MY FOOD BUT I MUST HAVE DESSERT!
Very loud - could hear the person across from you. Too much food!
We had a party of 8 and this restaurant in Georgetown did not disappoint. It is charming from the moment you walk in and pass the sweet, smiling lady making fresh pasta in a little room off the stairs. The dessert display is stunning and makes you want to eat less dinner to save room but don't do that because the food is probably the best Italian I have ever had. Our entire group agreed. From the amazing focaccia bread to the pasta entrees the food was just fabulous. We also had an amazing Italian red wine. Service was friendly and prompt. For the record, we all had dessert and it was delicious. Next time I am in the area I will definitely go back to Filomena's.
Beet Italian ever! The service is wonderful. Very personable. We have been coming here for over 25 years and have never been disappointed and not left hungry
I have a friend from out of town who has tried on different occasions to visit Filomenas. When she called that she was coming I immediately knew I had to make reservations and make her dream come true. She was very pleased as I was to enjoy great service, quality of food, and of course overall experience as it is always excellent! I can’t wait to return, and she is already looking for an excuse to visit again! 😆👏🏼
Great food and excellent service definitely lived up to the hype!
Amazing service and food.
Visiting the city
As other reviewers have noted. The portions are huge. We grew up in NY, now live in Seattle and have enjoyed many wonderful Italian restaurants over the years. Filomena ranks up there with the best of them. The strawberry spinach pecan and goat cheese salad was perfectly dressed. The homemade bursts divine. My husband thinks Filomena’s osao buck May be the best he’s ever had. Everything was superb—yes dated decor but that’s part of the charm. Only thing I would change: slightly smaller portions at a lower price point. But heck, getting two delicious meals out of our evening at Filomena’s is a wonderful outcome. Waitstaff were attentive, never intrusive—clearly, professionals. All in all, wonderful spot.
I came here with some family, and this place was highly recommended by a friend. Kudos to her. All 4 of us loved our dinners. Unfortunately, I don’t live in the area so I couldn’t take my scrumptious leftovers. Quite an interesting restaurant inside, wonderful staff and a lovely evening. Recommend this place highly
I love veal and their veal chop pounded to the size of a dinner plate and served as veal parmigiano is some of the best veal I have ever had!
