AUTHENTIC Italian!!

This is by far the MOST authentic Italian food you will have in DC outside of Italy. The food is fresh and the portions are great. Shrimp fra Diavolo, the meatballs, and deserts are great!!

My daughter took me to Filomena for a pre theater dinner last Tuesday. Growing up eating real Italian food has made us a little picky about restaurant Italian meals. She insisted that this was worth the trip and she was right on the mark! The arancini were the closest to the Sicilian original that I've had. Her lasagna and my... More

From seeing the gnocchi being handmade in the window to the vignettes that looked just like my grandmother's dining room, this place feels like home. Excellent Italian food!

If you are in DC, a trip to Georgetown to visit Filomena's is definitely worth your time. Its not a very big or fancy restaurant but Philomena makes the pasta fresh right in the window on the street As an Italian, I am very critical of Italian restaurants but you will get no criticism from me on the food at...

The portions here are tremendous and the food is great. It's a bit on the pricey side, but worth a splurge. Definitely try the handmade ravioli! It's gets very crowded so reservations are needed and its a bit noisy. Bartender was very nice and attentive while we waited to be seated. Only complaint, we were there on a super hot... More

Incredible, food, service, and atmosphere. This is where the celebrities and politicians go for a spectacular Italian dinner and it is every aspect of the service is awesome. While the prices are on the high-end, its worth the experience. Treat yourself to this delight!!

I usually never eat Italian out because I can eat it at home but this is the closest you'll get to authentic Italian cuisine in the DC area. My friends wanted to try it....Fresh made pasta and breads....tasty

The staff was wonderful - friendly, helpful, and attentive. However, the food was average at best, and the atmosphere was relaxed but almost too casual. The restaurant wasn't packed, but the noise was incredible. The tables were crammed into the dining room to the point that you could feel like you were joining your neighbor's party. Overall, the most disappointing... More
