The best of the best. Food is amazing and so is service. Usually impossible to get a table. They’re very safe minded!

As always, Filomena‘s was amazing! From the time that we entered until the time we left, everything was spectacular! The portions are huge, and definitely worth taking home for a couple of extra meals! The servers are super nice, very attentive and extremely knowledgeable!

The food was great and the environment was great . The only thing I would recommend for chicken parm lovers is, maybe Switching the sauce to vodka sauce because it was good

Pleasantly surprised at the attention to detail to cleanliness, social distancing, and overall welfare of staff and patrons. Every staff member had gloves and mask, we were presented 2 sets of cleaning wipes for dishes / silverware and phone, personal items. Tables are situated to be 6 ft apart, or there are dividers put in place to separate the tables. I even saw one of the staff inspect table and chairs with a black light....if that's not attention to detail I don't know what is.

The food is phenomenal. I tried the gluten free pasta and couldn't tell a difference from previous times I've eaten here. Absolutely delicious.

Accommodations made for COVID compliance were outstanding! I felt safe, comfortable and well cared for during my entire dining experience. Partitions between tables gave the restaurant an increased feeling of elegance and exclusivity while keeping me safe wile dining. Wait staff were considerate and wore masks and gloves during the entire service. We were even given sanitizing wipes for our hands and silverware and exterior surfaces if we so desired.

The food was excellent and we enjoyed every bite! There were obvious attempts to ensure the quality of the food was on par for their customers that have been awaiting the ability to dine with them again. An overall wonderful experience and I will be back!

I love the relaxed feel of this superb Italian restaurant. I eat here every time I visit DC and Filomena has never failed to impress. I love the Lasangna and have it every time. My niece also loved her vegetarian lasagna. Although I am not one to vary, other friends and family have themselves all raved about their dishes.Everyone loved their meal and the service was well-timed and friendly. This place is a MUST!

I love this place! The food is fantastic and the portions are huge. Two people could easily split a salad and split an entree, except that you will want your own dish so you can take home some leftovers.

It honestly is one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in the city. The food was delicious and in big portions, the desserts we had, were amazing as well. The service was stunning and the way they managed to have guests and at the same time take precautions for COVID-19 was really good. I’m definitely going back. Thank you!

Service was excellent. Peter was great as always.

The food was awesome. Recommend the mamma Mia shrimp app.

Really like how they rearranged the dining area, a little more spacious, dividers where it’s necessary, I like it much better.

Can’t wait to return.

The food was extremely bad, we had a company so I tried many dishes, I would except this quality for a low budget buffet but not for a restaurant, the plates were dirty also. Very disappointing
