Filomenas has the most fabulous Italian food. The last as are homemade and cooked perfectly. The 20 oz veal chop parmigiana is to die for. It's a wonderful family experience or romantic for two!

The restaurant had a nice atmosphere. A little cheesy like an Olive Garden. Food and service were straight up awful and the little Italian woman they show making Gnocchi looks like a prisoner in her windowed kitchen.

Filomena is a restaurant to go to if you have small children or want more pasta than anyone should eat in one sitting. The food is actually pretty good but all of the screaming children took away from the dining experience. The portions are ridiculously large so it attracts the kind of clientele who love a huge meal.

Not a good value. Expensive but food was not great nor very good (just good). We had the meat lasagna, chicken marsala, and pasta with sausage, ribs, etc. Portions were big enough but not huge for the high price. Tomato sauce and marsala sauce were not tasty. A little disappointed considering the reputation. Rather eat at Maggiano's or Carmine's considering the price. Our waiter was a little pushy since it appears that he wanted us to order the most expensive dishes.

Our sons recommended the restaurant. They told us Filomena's was a DC tradition. It didn't disappoint! Excellent service. On-time with our reservation. The only thing not offered was a side dinner salad. Otherwise, OUTSTANDING!

Best Italian mean I have ever had! Generous with main ingredients ;lobster, short rib meat, veal, etc.... Highly recommend!
The restaurant is VERY loud. The waiter took the drink order, served the food and never returned to the table to check on us. I had to flag him down to get a second drink and the check.

Great ambiance and old world feel that makes you believe you are part of the family. The menu is very accommodating to all tastes and the Rigatoni con Salsicce is amazing. They have something for everyone. My girlfriend loved it for her birthday surprise dinner. Noise level higher than usual but it is a rather comfy sized place. I would definitely recommend everyone check out this Georgetown Gem

Very enjoyable!! Comments: One of our group would have preferred a regular dinner salad instead of tbe salad bar. The rest of us enjoyed the salad bar. Salmon was a tad salty ( both persons who ordered this said same thing) , but they still thought it was delicious.

We have celebrated our anniversary there for many years and will continue to do so in the future (even though it is a 4 hr. drive to get there)! The food is beyond fantastic, never had a disappointing meal as we try to get something different each time! And the desserts.....oh yes! Although it gets a bit noisy,that is only because it is always packed with patrons that are happy and enjoying themselves, like we do! The very best part of going there is the exceptional service we receive from each and every server. This last time we had Giacarlo and Raffael, both were fantastic waiters! But the amazing part is that our favorite server, Vito, came to our table to greet us and talk to us, even though he did not have our table. Considering the thousands of people to go through those doors, to be remembered by a server enough to make a point to say hello was just unbelievable! We highly.....highly...recommend making this a stop along your way when in the D.C., Georgetown area.... You will not be disappointed!!! Thank you , Filomena Ristorante, see you again next anniversary....if not before!

Filomena has old world charm for sure. However, the service is not quite up to the mark. The servers are inattentive and brusque in their attitude. If you like old world Italian food which is very rich on the palate with rich gravies, you will love this place. IF you are like us and want Italian food with a little more finesse and flavors minus the rich heavy sauces, you will call this restaurant average.

One of the breast Italian dining experiences never had: Giacarlo was excellent - attentive, but not overbearing. The marinara, lobster sauce and pastas were superb. Will definitely be back, and would recommend anyone!!!!!!!

The decor is incredibly dated and tacky and the place is unbelievably loud. HOWEVER the food is tremendous! The meatballs and gravy are traditional favorites. Ravioli are light and tasty. This time I had lobster ravioli and they were fantastic. Prices are high. But overall another terrific and memorable meal!

Great spot that we try to hit anytime we're in DC. A bit noisy and always crowded, but good energy and they do a great job. Entrees are bountiful--you will not go home hungry.

Food,service, ambiance excellent! Only detractor was that the tables are too close. It was impossible for people to walk through the dining room without bumping those seated and eating. Any time someone adjusted their seats they would collide with diners at adjacent tables. Filomena's is always a must do for us when in town...Our favorite Italian restaurant ever!

Outstanding restaurant! Food was prepared with care and with attention to details. I would recommend Filomena to anyone visiting Washington who is interested in great food, attentive servers, and festive atmosphere. Looking forward to visiting again very soon!!
