Love their pasta, especially the lobster ravioli speciality with the cardinale sauce. There was a great deal of lobster in the ravioli. The portions are massive. The Easter decorations were over the top, as with all festive holidays. It’s quirky and charming. I’ve always had an issue with how dark the restaurant is, however, and a tad bit of light would likely make my experience more enjoyable.

My fiance and I had lunch at Filomena's after a day of striking out on museums etc being closed because of the pandemic scare. The staff were all amazing and welcoming to us, especially our waiter. I wish I remembered his name because he was top notch. The food was fresh and outstanding. The atmosphere is lovely, however it was a bit overkill on the Easter bunny decorations. I highly recommend Filomena's!

Love this place!! Have been having delicious meals here since the early 1980s. Food and service are always outstanding. My daughter and I dropped in for an early lunch after some shopping in Georgetown. We both had the gnocchi and it was delicious!!

What a great spot! There was a little lady in the front window making pasta by hand. We ordered the lasagna, gnocchi, and caesar salad- everything was delicious. The waiters were friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was fabulous. It was cozy and decorated!

Each time we visit Filomena‘s, the place is packed. Great energy and conversation in the restaurant. Sometimes the noise level can be a bit more than you might want, but there’s always a positivity in the air. Restaurant was completely decorated for Easter and our server was funny, attentive and professional.
Portions are enormous and everyone seems to leave with a bag of leftovers for another meal. The Bolognese sauce is delicious. Selection of desserts is large and everyone in our party sampled something different which was tasty.
Prices tend to be on the higher side at Filomena’s but you do get quite a bit for your money. This visit was the first for one of our family members, who was quite impressed with the caliber of the food and the experience.

The best Italian in the area, by far. Save room for dessert, or if you don't make sure to get some to go.
