Though this place is routinely crowded, you will not be disappointed by how tasty the food is. There is definitely enough for two meals! You really can't go wrong here with what you order - everything is fantastic.

The venue is quite surprising for an italian place in the US and the service was just great. Food is classic and good although I was expecting a little bit more! A good place to enjoy some home-like food.

I first went to Filomena in college (1985). And have been back several times as recently as 2016 and it maintains it's excellence. The food is authentic southern Italian and delicious. Try the vodka sauce dishes. It's not cheap but it's fun and in a...More

This is a popular, busy Georgetown restaurant, and it does have that old world Italian ambience to it. A reservation (at least at the weekend) is a must. We still had to wait about 20 minutes after our reservation time. It's a bustling, fun restaurant...More

We had 30 in our party but sat at three different tables. I didn't see any private dining but they might have it. I guessing you might have better choices if you want to all sit together or be in a private room.
