I've been here twice now. The first time was significantly better than the second in every way, but I can't ignore how awesome the first time was in rating the place. This is one of my coworkers' favorite places, so now that we're making regular trips, we always block out a night to come here for dinner. The first time,... More

It was some of the finest Italian I have had.i would recommend it for the thrill of a fancy restaurant. Was very pricy but we'll worth it. The service was excellant. The waiter extremely knowledge on wins. Only complaint... More

We were wondering the streets of Georgetown on a freezing snowy night and what a great find! A tiny door leads to a small hallway where you can watch a real Italian mamma making gnocchi. The restaurant downstairs is quite big but has a cosy feel. Exactly what we needed!! And food... Delicious, traditional Italian. The meatballs and tomato sauce... More

We made our reservation here about a month ago after reading reviews. We walk in and find a delightfully decorated valentines themed restaurant. We are seated promptly after checking out coats and greeted by our waiter. We ordered the calamari and fried mozzarella for appetizers. The calamari was bland and needed something extra. The mozzarella was fantastic! It had an... More

My fiancé and I love going here for a fancy night out. The pasta is made from scratch (Bonus: You can see it happening in the front window as you enter the restaurant.) The chicken and vodka sauce is excellent and the Tortelloni di Michele is one of the best Italian dishes I have ever had. Make sure to save... More

We went to Filomena's with a group who has visited the restaurant every year for 20 years. We had a group of fourteen, which was not a problem to accommodate. When our full group arrived, we were seated promptly. Servers are very attentive. I ordered the Risotto Agli Scampi - amazing! The risotto was cooked perfectly as well as the... More

From the outside one would think that this restaurant is very small, well this is certainly NOT the case. Once inside and down the steps to the basement to the restaurant, you will discover that is quite the opposite of small ,huge in fact, yet it still has a very "old school" Italian feel about it Close your eyes and...

Eaten many times at this old School Classic, maybe the best Italian restaurant in the DC area. So much to try it deserves multiple visits. Veal Chop, Gnocchi, but save room for the desserts. The over the top holiday decorations are fun, but the chefs making the homemade pastas in the window of what looks like your Grandma's Kitchen sets... More

Not the best in the world but up there. Huge portions of high quality pasta, meat and seafood. Have to agree with most every good thing in other reviews. The closest I can come to a complaint is that the seating is a bit crowded. That said, I will be back soon. MAKE A RESERVATION AS THEY ARE ALWAYS CROWDED.
