The quality and quantity of Filomena's food was truly worth the visit and the price. In my experience, only Osteria Morini comes close in Washington to such delicious, authentic and well-conceived Italian dishes, but Filomena's were, on the one visit at least, superior. The service...More

The place looks really cosy from outside, but the restaurant is actually in the basement. The place is really dark and gather all possible Italian clichés. Moreover, the restaurant is ridiculously expensive. 30$ for a risotto or a plate of pasta? Even if they are...More

Very cool decor and location. It is a close quarter environment but that is kind of the fun. Pre college graduation dinner. Lively but not too. Save room for dessert.

A dark, dingy basement. Worse is that it was it was a lovely sunny evening. Had to use the torch on my phone both to see the menu and to see what was on my plate. This restaurant is totally overrated.

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.
