We love Filomena, always amazing time and the Manager, Mac, is the world's greatest person! The food is always nothing short than amazing!
Our server was clearly new, so he was just learning, but other than that, this place is the best there is for Italian food outside of Italy! You will not be disappointed!
A bit noisy, but everything else was fabulous
Amazing food and service! Can’t wait to go back!
NO handicapped access. Wonderful food and service. Very noisy as tables are crowded together. Presidents eat here. Our favorite when in DC.
Hearty portions, great gluten free options, zany holiday decorations makes it feel like a special occasion. We’ll (hopefully) be back soon!
Always great service and food! Truly excellent!
Filomena's is one of a kind. If you're claustrophobic, stay home! It's down in a basement and very tightly packed. We had a reservation for 6:30 on a Sunday night and were seated at 7 after standing like sardines in a packed basement waiting area. The food was beyond plentiful and authentic. Our appetizers were the rice balls and cheese sticks (both have fancier Italian names.) For dinner we had the ravioli alla matrimonia (ravs + meatballs) and seafood linguini which was beautiful, with great mussels and on the spicy side. The meatballs had some herb in them that were almost stick like and not fun to bite, but otherwise the raviolis were dreamy.
Wonderful! Just so pleasant!
Very good experience, large portions and great service. Will be back again!
Exceptional...only complaint is the tables are too close together...once you are sitting down you can’t get up or you knock the people next to you
It lived up to its reputation. Everything was good. I can’t really complain.
Excellent food. Poor lighting. Couldn’t read the menu. Too dark, extremely loud. May need to consider relocating to somewhere bigger at this point. Growing beyond what you can accommodate.
A group of 7 friends ate here late Sunday afternoon. We shared appetizers but I think our favorite was the calamari. Everyone loved their meal whether it was the eggplant parmesan, La Familia with the delicious Sunday sauce, or shrimp cannelloni. We enjoyed ourselves and our waiter, Carmelo, was a delight. Very efficient but friendly service.
The food was amazing. Portions are large and service was excellent. Hands down the best Italian food I’ve ever had.
Cut my lip open and bleeding with their cup which was broken sharp at the edge- of many years of dining out, never yet have i witnessed a restaurant that have a broken glass cup still circulating in service- a eye opener for what’s becoming a poorly managed Georgetown favorite- am a Georgetown resident myself for the past 20 years and out dining once a week. This was a horrible experience- you go to eat and come back with a cut lip
Truly the best Italian food I have ever had.
Outstanding! Ask for the waiter, Carmelo! He’s the best!!
We went to Filomena on the recommendation of a friend who had visited DC. We scoured restaurants and decided to snag the 7:30 reservation. As it was valentines weekend, the entire restaurant was decked out in decorations. This place was amazing. We had prompt service and the food was delicious. The manager stopped by every table and engaged in conversation with the guests. Our dinner and dessert took an hour total, but we were not pressured and could have taken longer if we wanted. Next time we are in DC we will go back to try the Sunday sauce!
Filomena went above and beyond for my dairy allergy and specially prepared a gnocchi dish that was out of this world. I suggest adding that dairy and vegan friendly dish to their menu! Thank you Franco and Chef.
We were recommended to Filomenia's by a friend and we had a fabulous experience. After we were seated we were immediately greeted by our waiter "Franco" who was genuinely friendly and professional. His recommendations were spot on. The food was served piping hot and the Sunday Sauce lived up to its reputation .Portions were large so be prepared to eat when you come here. For dessert we had the cheesecake which was light and creamy. Excellent place to dine.
