Went to Filomena with my boyfriend and parents while visiting DC last weekend. Book reservations in advance...we lucked out and got a table for Friday night on Thursday...but they were absolutely full otherwise. Our server, Igino, was awesome. Charismatic and knowledgeable about all the wines and dishes offered. Presented his recommendations for all of us with factual info as to... More

The food and atmosphere at this restaurant are outstanding. The portions are generous and the staff and service is great. The Halloween decorations really added to the ambience. It was crowded but you could still have a conversation and enjoy yourself. A must visit restaurant in DC

Filomena is a Georgetown institution. The night we dined, the restaurant was filled with Halloween decorations. It's an eclectic décor - below street level, cozy and old school. The atmosphere was warm and festive. The stand-out is the food. I'd call this one of the best "old school, red sauce" Italian restaurants I have visited. Every item we ordered was... More

They are all decked out for Halloween; I have never seen so many! The homemade pasta is our of this world. I had the cheese ravioli with meatballs. The portions are huge, so arrive with a big appetite. The service is great.

We had dinner on the Sunday night over Labor Day weekend, our first time to dinner there. The restaurant has a great buzz and the waiter was extremely personable, but the entrees were just terrible. The special of fried ravioli in a tomato sauce was a big gloppy mess; the other special of a filled pasta in a sage butter... More

Truly authentic Italian from decor, service, and food. The food was absolutely amazing. Words just do not do it justice. A must visit when in Georgetown area.

The service was decent not perfect. The Decor minus the Halloween decorations were beautiful and very elegant. The food was not as good as I expected. Although it was good, it lacked some flavor. Carmine's in New York is so much better and so was Rosarios in Midland Park nj for delicious Italian food That being said I enjoyed myself... More

My wife and I went here to celebrate my birthday. We started off by sharing a Salsiccia della casa, which is Italian sausage, peppers, onions and, according to the menu, tomato sauce on the side, which we never saw. The dish wasn't anything special, but it was fairly tasty. Maybe if we had the tomato sauce, it would have been... More

Be sure to make a reservation. ... and have a desert. Parking is difficult in the area. We Uber'd and worked out great.
