My husband and I shared an appetizer and the veal marsala. We love Italian food. We have frequented NJ's most well known Italian restaurants. To our surprise, the food and the service at Filomena was unbelievable! The veal and gravy were exceptional. I will certainly return.

Filomena was recommended to us, and we absolutely loved it. The atmosphere had an old school, Italian feel. The food was just delicious. The calamari was the best we've ever had. Our server, Giuseppe, was great. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great meal!

We were in DC for a few days and booked it by others comments. We were not disappointed. It was a Friday night and we booked for 9:30 knowing we would get a table earlier. We arrived at 8:15 and were told a table canceled and we could sit at 8:30. Still decorated for Valentine's Day was a nice touch since we didn't go out that night because of the crowds. Perfect. Drinks at the bar were good. A cosmo and Goose on the rocks started the experience nicely. We were met within 2-4 minutes at the table for drinks, water and provided a wine list. Menus were given out when we sat down. We ordered to share four courses, the fresh mozzarella, followed by arugula salad and then the meatballs and raviolis for a pasta dish and ended with veal parmianna. All met out expectations for a Resturant in this price range. A nice touch is the complimentary sambuca and amaretto at the end of the meal. All in all a very nice time.

I always love coming to Filomena. The only thing I'll say is that it took longer than expected to get a waiter for our table. Granted it was busy, but after the waiter came to our table everything went smooth from there and on.
Another general recommendation is not having the tables too close to each other, but more space in between tables. We had to squeeze through tables to make our way out.
Overall, love it!

Took my girlfriend here at 6:30 on a Friday night to celebrate Valentine's Day.
Pros: Great food, fresh, hot, perfect.
Cons: This restaurant is very Loud, No chance for a romantic night here.
The space was pretty dismal, there are very TIGHT quarters, the wait staff was constantly flying by us, brushing by us the whole dinner. I did not enjoy that.
For $130.00 meal, I want an area where I can sit back without feeling like I'm in the way. NOT FOR DATES :)

Filomena Ristorante is one of the finest places at which I've ever eaten. In fact, it is the best Italian restaurant ever - and I've been going there since the 1980's. I live in Iowa but travel to the DC area 2-3 times a year and I almost always treat my family and/or friends to Filomena. The food has never been less than outstanding and the service is impeccable. Dino always greets me with a wonderful welcome and has been very helpful. I highly recommend Filomena to anyone who visits the DC area. You cannot go wrong.

The food is always excellent but the service is suffering. There are a lot of service staff but it appears most are there only to fill water and takes empty plates. The main waiters seem rushed and long periods go by without any inquiries on satisfaction. We didn't order another round of drinks because the waiter didn't come by in a timely manner and we were about ready to leave.
Filo's is a staple but the service is really suffering and I hope they can turn it around.

Food was good but not as great as it is at dinner time. Not sure if they change recipes ingredients or just that it was the first thing in the morning. Server was OK very busy doing other things versus attending to us. That is not typical for this place. Staff congregated near my table just outside kitchen using a lot of foul language. Wasn't a fan of that as I was with my five-year-old. Overall price of food to expensive. Dessert was always good but price is way too high

Went for lunch for my wife's birthday with my 2 year old and in-laws. The meal was great and my father-in-law wanted to come back for my mother-in-laws birthday. They came out and sang Happy Birthday when they brought out dessert.

Have no complaints about the delicious food or very friendly and nice service. Only feedback is that they were really packed to the point it was hard to hear people at my own table. They were understandably busy due to Valentines Day approaching. We were seated at a small table that constantly got bumped into and we were too close for comfort (maybe an inch away) from the table next to us with a couple on a date.

We love the food here and the ambiance is always amazing around holidays. Our most recent visit left a lot to be desired in the way of service. Our waiter took 10 minutes to initially stop by our table and was not readily available throughout the night. I couldn't flag him down for water for quite awhile and we only saw him four times the whole evening. It is understandable with it being a holiday weekend in February, but even when he was at the table he didn't seem interested in providing us with his time in order for us to have a nice evening . To top it off I handed him the check with the card and when he came he ignored my hand out stretched and gave it to my husband. It was my card, but he didn't care to look at when he swiped it or acknowledge me when I reached for it. Not the end of the world just not our normal enjoyable experience.

We ate a wonderful dinner earlier in the week so decided to come back for lunch the weekend before Valentine's Day. BIG mistake. It was over crowded, servers were overwhelmed, food quality went down and we could hardly talk over the roar of the crowded room. The tables were so tight my husband kept being bumped by the person behind him. I wasn't jolsted because the chair behind me was used for customers coats. WOW! Never again! Good experience the first time, won't do weekend lunch ever again.
