Had a family funeral reception / celebration of life recently at Filomena’s. It was perfect! When I initially talked to Mike, he said “don’t worry about a thing, I’ll take care of everything” and he did! The room was ready when we arrived. Staff were immediately available to serve drinks and bring out the food. The buffet selection was exactly... More

Excellent staff, fabulous meal, very nice interior layout/design (particularly like the wide plank wood floors). Seafood Fra Diavolo served with generous helping of seafood.

This little local restaurant is a gem. I have been there 4 times now, and each time the food was delicious and the service was excellent. My last visit, a few nights ago, left me singing their praises to anyone who would listen. I had a spinach salad with pears and sweet onions fried in pancetta. It was wonderful, so... More

Filomena's is our go-to restaurant when we want good food in a casual setting. The menu is varied and leans toward Italian (the Polenta/Gorgonzola dip appetizer is out of this world, if a little artery-scaring), with many delicious salads and pizzas and sandwiches as well. There is a bar (away from the dining room), so drinks and wine are always... More

I had drinks & dinner here with some friends. Nice salads, and great nachos! All our appetizers were served quickly, and they were delicious. Good service, and very friendly, too.

My husband and I were here for a late lunch on a nice May weekday. We were graciously greeted and escorted to our table. The restaurant is comfortable and very clean. The menu was pretty extensive and offered interesting choices above and beyond the norm...but they were offered also. We found prices fair. I had the soup half sandwich combo.... More

Just very disappointing in taste. We went on Mother's Day and ordered from the menu - there was a buffet in another room. Maybe it was mediocre because of that - or maybe it's always like that. We're not going to go back to find out though. The "Parmesan encrusted chicken breast" strangely tasted like re-purposed and reheated chicken Parmesana,... More
