    If possible try to visit during Easter, Christmas or Halloween. This place will decorate the restaurant with the most elaborate themes I have ever seen - plus the food is great!

    Filomena is a tourist and expense account trap slinging mediocre-at-best Americanized/bastardized Italian classics. The portions are gigantic, but you'll be left wanting less, not more.

    Georgetown mainstay for Italian American - definitely not authentic, despite the Nonna making fresh pasta in the window. Smelled pretty bad of some kind of cleaning fluid and mold/rot/bathroom stench.

    Very filling and tender. If there are multiple plates ordered, I recommend sharing this with someone. The veal chop will leave you stuffed but very satisfied.

    There's a reason this was an award winning dish. Best ravioli I've had of all my years eating this pasta. The sauce was incredible and the ravioli was stuffed with delicious brisket.

    Bigger is not always better. No particular taste in the all cream based sauce but this restaurant seems to think the generous portions compensate for all that. Overpriced!
