OLD SCHOOL!!! I’ve never been to a restaurant that made me feel more at home, or like I was having dinner at Grandma’s house for a fancy holiday dinner. Everything I had was phenomenal and so was the service. It’s been a long time since I’ve been anywhere close to this where the customer is truly treated like family. Everything from the atmosphere right when you walk in, to the homemade pasta and complimentary sambuca and amaretto truly sets this place apart from any other restaurant. If you are in the area, you need to give this place a try!

Had some family members tell me about this place and it lived up to its expectation. Awesome service and even better food. Big portions so come hungry. You won’t be disappointed.

The second you walk into Filomena, you can smell how good the food is. The bread, rigatoni, and strawberry cheesecake were absolutely delicious. The food is definitely worth the cost; I want to go back and try everything on the menu.
– Melanie Martinez
Filomena is more than a restaurant – it’s a full-service adventure. The staff is incredible, the food is excellent, and it’s best just to make yourself comfortable and experience all they have to offer. One of my favorite special places in DC.

Absolutely the best Italian restaurant in the US. We were warmly greeted and seated within a minute. The interior made me feel that I am in a five-star Italian restaurant. Our server Fabiano was fantastic, he was polite, gave amazing recommendations and was very attentive to our table. He deserves to be recognized for his efforts. He made us feel like a million dollars. Now let’s talk about the food…we started our meal with calamari, followed with the famous gnocchi and pasta and to end our meal we tried their strawberry cheesecake. When you visit Washington D.C. on business or on leisure this place is a must visit. Prices are great and portions are big, we had enough food for dinner the following day.
The portions here are enormous! The service here was fantastic and the food was the best Italian I’ve ever had. If you are in the area I would 100% recommend this place. It is worth every bit of the price!

Hands down the best Italian food I’ve had. Took a group of 11 there the other day and every person raved about their meal. Try the cannoli for dessert – amazing.

My wife said she’d never seen me look so happy while eating. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and oh my goodness the food.

– Cerise Clarke
Whenever we are here in town, this place is a must. Being Italian myself I don’t usually like eating Italian meals out but this place is so good. The service has always been stellar too. If you want outstanding classic Italian dishes, come here — you won’t be disappointed.
– Sue Utter
IMHO, the best restaurant in DC! Impeccable service and the freshest, most delicious pasta dishes you’ll ever have. And, a complimentary offering of Sambuca and Amaretto after dinner. You’ll need reservations, but this place is SO worth it. I loved it!!!
– Robert Nielsen
Outstanding is the best word to describe the food, service and atmosphere. Never a bad meal. Oysters are the best I’ve had. Cheese ravioli with shrimp and scallops in the famous pink sauce is to die for!
– Sherrie L Miller
Absolutely delightful. If there was an option for 6 stars I would give it. Top notch food and service. Best Italian in DC
– Brad Orme
Fabulous food, wonderful atmosphere, and staff that knows attention to detail. If you’re looking for a nice evening out, try this restaurant. It will not disappoint.

Filomena’s is a staple of Georgetown and a great Italian restaurant to visit when in DC. It’s always busy and reservations are recommended. Food and service get 5 stars! Great spot for large groups!
– Bill Flagg
My favorite in DC, so many great memories with friends here. The food never disappoints and neither does the service. Everything is homemade and so good. Portions are huge, desserts are wonderful if you have any room left to enjoy them.
– Linda Larkin
OMG…I’ve decided that this is my FAVORITE Italian in the country! The Gnocchi are like little pillows of LOVE! All the sauces are decadently delicious…but the Sunday Sauce is AMAZING!
– John Frels
Fantastic food if you like authentic Italian. Service is nice also. I would give them 6 stars if I could. The atmosphere deserves a solid 6 as well.

We struggle during these troubling times and uncharted waters to know which decision is the most responsible.
Here at Filomena our staff is our family and many have been with us from our beginning. Also, we are exceptionally close to our loyal guests who have been our friends for these past 37 plus years and in 37 years we have never faced such a dilemma.
The well-being of our staff, their families and our guests is paramount. We have therefore made the very difficult decision to close Filomena for two weeks. The place for everyone right now is to isolate in our own homes.
I deeply apologize to anyone having a reservation during these next two weeks. We hope you understand the necessity of this action. We are trying to be proactive and protect our loved ones.
So please stay safe and we hope to see you April 27th!
