After a day on the water tog fishing with the Sunbeam V, Filomena's was a great discovery for food & relaxation. I started with the Calamari, always a test of an Italian restaurant for me, intrigued by the hot, pepper cream sauce. Both lived up to their billing! Next was the House's Mixed Green Salad and the Creme Brûlée. Loved... More

Have visited this restaurant many times and have had wonderful meals. Mike the owner not only delivers great food but a family friendly inviting environment. The bar is also full of friendly faces and great fun. I have also held events catered by the restaurant and they were such a success! I have nothing but good things to say!

I took my kids to dinner the other night before our oldest went back to college. Every one of us loved what we ordered. The gnocchi is delicious. The chicken Parmesan portion was huge! My youngest was devouring the chicken wings. There is definitely something for everyone. The atmosphere is very relaxing as well

Unexceptional food, poor service and overpriced items in an unremarkable storefront location. There are much better choices in the New London area.

We had a really great evening celebrating a retirement in the back party room. It was just the right size for us and the food was great. Everyone was complementing what a good spot for the party, and the prices are very reasonable. Our staff was very attentive and pleasant to work with.

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.
