Every year for the last 15, we go to Washington DC for a May conference and we have a dinner annually at Filomena. We've had great meals there but this year was probably the best of them all. Great service, too. Even an Italian neighbor of ours recently visited her son in Washington and went to... read more

If you have not gone here, you have not not truly been to DC. Downstairs, past the ladies hand making pasta, to the over the top decorated dining room, with its glittering clientele (your head will be turning, did I just see that person who I see on the news every night?). Then you will order some great food, and... More

OK, so I make some pretty fresh and fantastic basil infused hand crank pasta for my lasagna....along with fresh homemade pasta sauce. But the lasagna is the best I have had on the planet.Italy eat your heart out. This is well worth the price. I give you Filomena, the fabled and distinguished, May Emblem. Congrats to the unbelievable wait staff.... More

The food was great. The portions are very large - we could have shared an entree. We had the most sublime dessert - Hazelnut cake with chocolate ganache, and they brought two carafes of liqueur to our table to have with our coffee - sambucca and amareto. The service was very attentive and genuinely warm.

We met a lovely "Pasta Mama" on the way in - she was making the Agnolotti Alla Panna (ravioli stuffed with a blend of Italian cheeses and sauteed spinach) which I ended up ordering (with red sauce instead of the cream sauce).They were like air pillows! Their focaccia bread served with a fresh pesto dipping oil was delicious. I had... More

Everything is great at this restaurant. Hidden behind a small front you enter where some women are making fresh pasta. You take stairs down and you are welcomed by very friendly staff and a big table with pies (they taste great as we later experienced. We had a anti-pasta as starter. Cannelloni Frutti Di Mare fresh pasta filled with shrimp... More

We visited Filomena on Mother's Day and were pleased with our experience. I would recommend making reservations as it is not a very big place and it was very busy. Even with reservations we waited about 30minutes before we were seated. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Our portions were very large and everyone had leftovers.... More

This place is a favorite stop for me in DC. Made reservations with Open Table and were seated about 10 minutes after reservation time. Scallops and shrimp with cheese ravioli was excellent. Because of the noise of the very crowded restaurant, it was hard to understand our waiter's explanations of the specials. Minor issue since everything is great, but it... More

Dad & I took Mom here Sunday evening for Mother's Day during a recent sightseeing trip to DC. On the way in there was a grey haired Nonna seated in the front window hand rolling gnocchi. :-) What's not to Love? We had 7:30 reservations and the place was packed! other reviewer's comments about the noise level were right on... More
