Made a reservation the day before while visiting family in VA. Could only get a 3:30 res for Sunday. Every inch of the restaurant was decorated for Xmas, which created a charming cozy ambience. Now here's the bad news: The Caesar salad was shameful--watery romaine lettuce is the kindest description. The house wines were absolutely blah, but premium priced. Tried the super Tuscan and the Chianti. The bread was warm and looked like country Italian bread but taste and texture was white bread. So why 4 of 5 stars? Our waiter advised us which pastas were homemade and which were not. We all went for the homemade: Raviolis and meatballs. The meatballs were huge and generous. They were light, meaty and absolutely delicious. The tomato sauce was awesome without a hint of acidity. The huge raviolis, stuffed with ricotta and spinach were to die for. So light, they seemed to float on the plate. Best we've ever eaten. Would ignore the bread, salad and wine deficiency and go back again and again if we lived in the area. Oh, and don't forget the desserts. One melt-in-your-mouth eclair would easily satisfy three people.

Filomena does a great job of creating a total Christmas atmosphere in December, from the warm decoration of the entire restaruant to the generous spirit of the Italian table.

Make reservations - arrive - scan the wine list - and the menu. All is excellent, BUT, remember the serving are gigantic. There were 6 of us for dinner - we shared a large salad and then 3 entrees and had plenty of food for all - all prepared to order and excellent. Filomena Ristorante has been in G'town for quite some time. The food is always excellent - but again if you can order a starter and entree and finish it all by yourself you are either a world-class eater or Sumo. But all that said if you like quality Italian food you will not be disappointed no matter what you order.

Unless someone tells you to visit Filomena, you would not know it actually exists. However, once the secret is out, it is a must for every Italian food connoisseur. Always fresh pasta around (and you can check out what the old lady makes as you enter), good veal parmesan, great service and the Amaretto (gratis) is always a treat. Recommended!

Outstanding Italian dishes. My favorite is the Linguini Cardinale. Portion size is enough for two. Everything about this place is perfect from the minute you walk in past the ladies making the pasta to the complimentary Amaretto and Sambuca at the end. If you are in Georgetown be sure to stop in.
