This place has amazing Italian food and the best part is that they will find a way to accommodate gluten free. The waiters are very aware of gluten allergies and will work with you to see if a menu item can be altered to be...gluten free. I asked for Chicken Parm and they were able to do it with grilled chicken instead of breaded. They also gave me gluten free penne which was pretty good. No gluten free bread but that is hard to find at restaurants. At the end of the meal they offer complimentary shots of Sambuca or Disorrono which is nice. The waiters wear tuxedos but you don't have to dress up that much. Smart casual or higher is acceptable. They do not offer a kids menu and typically don't allow plate sharing. However, our waiter let our son pick food off our plates with no issue. Great experience, atmosphere and food!More

Nothing really special. Outrageously expensive. Lunch $100 easy without wine. Would I come back ? No of course. Quality of food was ok. Not sure if the pasta homecooked. Location is nice . Service friendly. Desserts are not freshly made and $14 for a slice...of cake 🍰😂More

Wow! This restaurant is over the top. The atmosphere is vibrant and noisy. We dined on a Friday night, at 8 pm and the place was packed. Please note, this restaurant is extremely expensive. With that being said, the portions are huge and the staff...was outstanding. We requested a booth (4people) and a special surprise dessert for daughter was graduation from college. Sadly, neither was aggranged. Our dinners were excellent and they have a large wine list. If your looking for a restaurant for a special occasion, this might be the place for you.More

The price- range indicated on this site is dated! It's significantly pricier now. My family loves it for special occasions for it's quirky decor and delicious pasta. It does NOT feel like DC in there!

We visited Filomena for lunch whilst visiting George town. The restaurant is very quirky - we were there during Easter time and the Easter decorations were everywhere. It felt like we stepped from sunny George town streets to a different world, by going downstairs to...Filomena:-) We were told that restaurant gets kitted out for Easter, 4th July, Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year. I would suggest you book in advance as the restaurant is very popular - we were unable to find evening slot whilst in DC. The portions are very big - so be prepared! Food is really excellent - gnocchi are definitely worth mentioning. I also had hazelnut cake and no lie, it might be the best cake I have ever tasted! If you are in the area, definitely worth paying Filomena a visit:-)More

We made reservations for a romantic Italian meal at a recommended high end Italian Restaurant in Georgetown. We were very surprised when we were shown to our table. The room while very nicely decorated was crowded. When we look around we were amazed that diners...were dressed anywhere from Coat and tie to track suits and sandals. There as no dress code or minimum dress standard for the restaurant. We had ordered drinks and an appetizer but there was so much noise that it was not the experience we expected. We paid for the drinks and appetizer and left. So much for a nice romantic evening.More

Wow! Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. Salmon, salad, pasta, calamari. Phenomenal. Even a complimentary Anisette. We went for Easter in which they decorate heavily for. I highly recommend.

Stopped here for dinner while visiting our daughter and son in law in Wash DC. One of their favorite restaurants. This was my second time dining here. The restaurant was tackily decorated for Easter. It was also very busy during our late night dinner. The...waitstaff kept bumping into my husbands and sil's chairs the entire night. The menu was interesting with peculiar combinations. Seriously, some of those items and flavors just do not belong together in Italian cooking or there was just too many flavors competing against each other. I had the gnocchi broccoli. The cheese sauce was gummy and just seemed like it was dumped from a jar. My family did enjoy their meals.More

April 7, 2022, we returned to our favorite D.C. restaurant. It continues to amaze with deft management, attentive wait staff, and delicious Italian dishes. It was decorated with a riot of Easter Colors, Bunnies of all shapes, and Easter eggs adding to the wonder of...Easter. My wife ordered a veal scollopini which she enthusiastically enjoyed. I ordered a Caesar Salad and the Arancini which was superb! I would order the Arancini any time there but alas, not the Caesar Salad because it was heavily dressed with a creamy Caesar dressing, not my preference. The manager was highly professional and attentive to every customer, a pro! Well worth the cab ride!More

I’m glad we happened upon this restaurant while in DC. The food was fresh, generously portioned and perfectly executed. We avoid wasting food so we shared appetizers, one entree and still had leftovers. The salmon was buttery, cooked medium and flavors so balanced that made...every bite a “yum” one. The complimentary amaretto was a nice touch. Service is top notch. Nice wine selection. We couldn’t even think about desert as we ate so much. I’d recommend sharing.More
