    Decor is dated and dusty. Honestly made me think twice about eating here. Portions are so enormous they have to be shared. Tough for a family of 4 that all want to try something different. No kids menu or portions.

    Tommy was our waiter. He was FANTASTIC and definitely the best part of the dining experience. However, it is a very crowded and very noisy restaurant. Not that people talking are bothersome, but there was a table that was in close proximity to us with extremely boisterous customers that basically ruined our dining experience. They were at times so loud that we couldn’t even carry on a conversation. Food was good, but overall, I would take a pass. The food is not so amazing that you couldn’t find a similar Italian restaurant and most likely much better ambiance.

    Food and service seem to be going downhill. We’ve been going to Filomena for years and there is a noticeable difference in the quality of food and service. Even the ambiance was poor - smelled like Mr. Clean more than it smelled of Italian food.

    I always dine at Filomena’s when in DC. It is one of my favorite restaurants. I had the Funghi di Spinaci appetizer with gin martinis to start. For dinner I ordered the Agnolotti Alla Carbonara. The waiter provided a white wine to pair. I also very much enjoy the warm ambiance. The entire experience was entirely enjoyable, as usual. I wholeheartedly recommend Filomena’s.

    If you like kitsch and heavy sauces, this is the place for you. Amazingly, our entrées arrived less than five minutes after we ordered. It is touted as a DC institution but, frankly, it’s overpriced and overrated. The service is friendly and attentive, though.
