This is a five star experience with maybe 3.5 - 4 star food. You are here to celebrate and enjoy something out of the ordinary and the atmosphere will certainly be different than your normal dining experience. Most people come here to celebrate and have a pleasant evening.The food is good and the wines are Italian - what could go... More

Visited this restaurant with my kids. The atmosphere was fun and the service was excellent; that was the best part. As for the food, not so much. If you want quantity, this is your place. If you want quality (taste), try somewhere else. Three stars because of the overall experience with the staff.

Went here on a business trip after reading the good reviews. Yes, it's a good Italian restaurant but certainly not the best I have ever eaten in. If this is "the best Italian in Washington " the others must be be very ordinary. Good yes, but over hyped by other reviewers. More expensive than it should be.

Went with my family for dinner. Place was so crowded they started to put tables on the corridors. Expensive poor tasting unoriginal italian food. No one in my party was able to had a decent dinner, as everything had out of the can tomato sauce. Service was even worse. Do not recommend you come here with your kids they will... More

Filomena is a very popular and highly rated restaurant. Reservations are required and recommended several days in advance. The atmosphere is nice, the lighting could be a little better, but the food is delicious. Seven of us had a celebration and all of us were delighted with our choices which ranged from vegetarian, to seafood, to meat. The portions are... More

Old school decor and amazing food!! It smelled like Nana's kitchen from years ago. The linguini Mare Misto was loaded with gorgeous fresh seafood. Enough food for 2 or 3 people!! One dinner mate had the homemade gnocchi. Delicious!!

Tried for the first time based on recommendations of friends. Overall we were very happy with our experience. We had early reservations and caught them switching from a busy lunch to dinner service. We were seated promptly on arrival. Staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious and the portions were more than generous. I had the chicken parm... More

Everything everyone raves about in this place is true, the humble tomato sauce brought me to tears! Portions were massive. Long waiting, must book!

Saw all the reviews and decided to try it. It is very old school which is cool. Like eating in someones house with 200 other people. Halloween decor was indeed gaudy but that sort of made it more so. Fresh pasta is good but expensive for just pasta. Risotto with shrimp was excellent and eggplant parm had a decent taste... More

We had dinner for six of us on Friday night and the service, food and atmosphere was great. We had fish, pasta and shared several appetizers and all were delicious. We always try to have lunch or dinner here while in Georgetown. The ladies that make pasta in the window are an institution and the waitstaff is friendly and efficient.... More
