We stumbled upon Filomena on a recent lunchtime visit to Georgetown, read the menu on the doorand decided to give it a try. On the way down the stairs (it's in the basement of a townhouse), we saw all the Zagat and Cityguide awards and thought it would be worth a try.
There's pictures of US Presidents and other world leaders that have visited the restaurant, and the menu mentions celebrities that have eaten there. When I saw that Bono asked for seconds of their sausage pasta, I knew we were in the right place.
We decided to try the arancini appetizer, since we'd never tasted them before. They were little rice balls filled with cheese and meat and deep fried- amazing, just like a little fried pizza!
We ordered cannelloni and fettucine carbonara, and both came with free salad bar. We all enjoyed the salad bar, with the usual offerings plus fresh bread and butter and caprese salad. The carbonara pasta was spectacular, with shitaake mushrooms, pancetta and proscuitto and delicious handmade fresh pasta. All of their pastas are made by hand by the Italian Mommas, and I can't wait to try them all.
We shared a slice of hazelnut cake for dessert and it was divine. The service was very attentive, and the decor is cozy and gets you into the spirit of Little Italy. We'll be sure to visit every time we're in town from now on.
