Made reservations. We were greeted and seated immediately. Decor was full-on Holloween themed - kind of odd for mid-September. Table was somewhat in a heavily travelled aisle. We asked for assistance in selecting an Italian wine. We are knowledgeable about California wines, and tried to express our tastes accordingly. Wine recommendation was not at all “big and bold” as described. But we drank it. Salad was excellent. We shared - plenty. Entrees were also excellent and more than we could eat. Aperitif was perfect. All in all a good experience.

As always, the food and drinks were impeccable. The pasta is just amazing. There were three of us, and all three meals were exceptional! I will always make sure any DC trip includes a meal at Filomena Ristorante.

Fun place, great ambiance. Crazy portions of food, but that does explain the prices. 35/40 dollars for a pasta dish, definitely to share with at least two people.

I was amazed at the quality of the food. Best gnocchi i have ever tasted including in Italy. The atmosphere was hysterical with early Halloween decorations. But again - just go for the food. Prepare yourself for large properties.

The food was really good and portion sizes are large. The service was excellent. The restaurant was seasonally decorated which was kind of cool, though unexpected. Tables are close in traditional Italian fashion. Noise level is kind of high and, due to the close tables, having a private conversation can be difficult. Overall a very enjoyable experience and I will return.

Real deal Italian food! Portions are huge, always enough to take home for another meal. Everything from the fresh bread to dessert is delicious. Service is always good, waitstaff very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Interior always decorated for holidays. On our visit was heavily decorated for Halloween, very nice job. We plan on going back for Christmas decorations

Overrated and overpriced. Very very crowdy and noisy. Probably get COVID. The decoration is tedious. Halloween theme in early September, seriously? 40 dollars for a plate of not-italian-at-all pasta. Not recommended at all.

Classic old school upscale Italian restaurant with exceedingly large portions. The focaccia bread was the best I’ve ever eaten, the Caesar salad was very good, as was the Veal Saltimbocca with rigatoni with vodka sauce. My wife loved here Misto de Mare with gluten-free pasta. No room for dessert.

Filomena's is a landmark, located in a very historic building and everyone says you must go.. it was charming, though Halloween decorations up in early September seemed too much) The service was excellent, the drinks and appetizers were very delicious. The entrees were so overpriced. A bowl of linguine with a few clams was $35! Desserts also very expensive.. Also the food came out soooo quick which makes me think it was all prepared ahead of time.. for the $$ it just didn't seem fresh. We enjoyed our food, it was good, but this is, in my opinion a 1 time visit.

What a great place to come for a special occasion or upon visiting DC. HUGE portions and delicious homemade food. At the end of the meal, they give you a little taste of sambucca or amoretto just as a special treat. It was a little noisy but the food is worth it!

Loved everything about it! Great service, cool ambiance and delicious food! The serving sizes are generous…even my husband was stuffed and had leftovers. We liked everything we ordered and can’t wait to go back soon! Definitely recommend. If you’re sensitive to social distancing, go early before it gets crowded (after 6:30). Filomena’s is a MUST!
