A word from Sfoglia
Sfoglia is a lovely little trattoria residing on an unassuming stretch of the Upper East Side, across the street from the 92nd Street Y. Farmhouse tables topped with the season's produce are the appropriate setting for Sfoglia's country Italian fare. The private dining room tucked away upstairs can seat an intimate party of twelve.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Sfoglia never ever disappoints. The thoughtfulness and creativity of the menu, the wine selection, and the service can always be counted. And the pastas re-define the word spectacular every time we come."

  • "So refreshing to try some new flavorings and innovative Italian farm dishes not usually found on other Itslian menus. I loved my experience here. Not for everyone as the menu is smaller than most restaurants but the chef prepared each and every dish with utmost care and pride. Each dish is delicious and flavorful. I can't wait to return to try more."

  • "this is the second time I go to Sfoglia, everything was exceptionally good except for the ambience. They have 2 areas, one facing the street which is amazing and another area in the back of the restaurant. The later is too dark, no windows, I would recommend to call the restaurant and ask for a table in the front if you prefer to have more light and windows."

  • "I'm Italian and really appreciate good Italian food. We looked up reviews online and booked a reservation for 5:30. We arrived at the restaurant 7 minutes early and the hostess specifically came outside to rudely tell us they weren't open yet! I read that the bread was outstanding but ours was almost too burnt to eat. I have made homemade rustic Italian bread and my aunts from Italy serve it and this bread was more sourdough than Italian. The red sauce was overly spicy and just not pleasant at all. I had the bolognese sauce and it was better than the red sauce but not great. Their homemade pasta was good but my husband had the gnocchi and it was too small and soft. The prices were high and not worth it! I don't recommend this place!"

  • "I have been to Sfoglia many times over the years, starting with Nantucket. It has always been great. Tuesday evening, 6/17 was just abominable. One was nasty, arrogant, and obnoxious. He would not split the salad for 2, he came and interrupted our conversation to announce the "specials never said," excuse me, or may I tell you about the specials this evening?" When waiter #2 came to serve the entrees, he said he "forgot" to place my order for salmon. Since one of our friends had also ordered the same entree, he split hers in half, and then when the second was ready, split that in 1/2 also, what a ridiculous dining experience. One which we won't repeat any time soon."

  • "We were four women who came to this restaurant after a recommendation from a family member. It is over priced and we were not that pleased with the service. It seemed that there was only one waitress and even though it is a small venue, we were left to our own devices throughout the night. We had the fish special, the chicken and the salmon as our main dishes, and they were delicious. However, the sides that came with the meal were very bitter greens that were quite unpleasant. All in all, I have had a much more pleasant dining experience at these prices in other restaurants. Would not come back to this restaurant. "

  • "By far, one of the upper east side's dining treasures. Dishes are simple, flavorful and unique. You can taste the care given to each dish. Make a reservation now...you'll be very pleased. The chicken is an work of art. "

  • "What a find! Absolutely amazing food. House specialty Sfoglia chicken is uber memorable."

  • "One of the best lunch specials on the upper east side. The roasted cauliflower with scallop reduction was fabulous, as was the ramp pasta and panna cotta. Always a treat!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The only drawback of this gem on the UES is how long it can take to get a booking at this intimate and delicious restaurant. The food is always fresh farm to table type food. The menu is small but with the freshest flavors and ingredients. I love coming here with some friends when I need to escape the typical frantic NYC type places."

  • "Food, bread, wine are always fantastic. Service is also good. Would come back more often if it wasn't as expensive."

  • "There was no light hard to read the menu. I had a bib salad which the best part of my meal. My friend and I had the shrimp, spicy sausage polenta which was more like soup. There was no printed dessert menu. The tiramisu was awful. I have never seen it served in a glass with nuts? "

  • "I went here on a date night with my wife and thought the place was beautiful. We sad in an area a couple steps down (not in their main dining area) and it was romantically lit with candles -- really nice. The pastas were good -- but a little salty for my taste (it wouldn't stop me from coming back, but is the reason I didn't give the food a higher rating). I'd come back for sure -- and the service was great, we had really nice wait staff."

  • "The food was excellent as usual - inventive combinations, and very fresh. The service was not up to par - perhaps they were short- handed, but it was hard to find a waiter when needed."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The food was good, but I was not wowed like I was on previous visits. The service was the real letdown. Our waitress was indifferent and the pacing was bizarre. All four of us at the table had been to Sfoglia before, and all agreed that this was an off night--hopefully not indicative of the way things are heading there. "

  • "There's something about the vibe at Sfoglia - I just love it. And you can't beat the food: traditional yet inventive menu items, super full of flavor. Charming and delicious."

  • "What took us so long to dine here ? Pleasant staff / very good service / interesting wine list and while the menu is limited it is very very good . . next visit : trying the hash browns . . . but never sinning again on the wonderful (must be ordered ahead) pear tart !!!"

  • "Chicken Mattone is still the same wonderful dish, many changes since the original owners have left but the food is still pleasing. I had the bibb lettuce salad, and friends had the triple appetizer to start which used to be something to split, not such a clear split any longer. The pappardelle seemed a little thick and pasty and not as appealing as it was formerly. Budino dessert was too thick but the lemon sorbetto was refreshing. The room downstairs has become a more intimate space to dine in then it used to be."

  • "Does the chef have a magic brick in the kitchen? The chicken cooked under it is out of this world delicious! And the oysters are light, crisp and so flavorful. "
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "The food is exceptional here, and always exceeds our expectations. Seating is another matter. Most recently we had booked a late table at 9.30 and we were first shown a table sharing with others and where it was loud. We requested a solo table, which was perfect. Twenty minutes a group of three young women were also seated at our table, and they were loud--what to do? Nothing. Then the music was turned up. What to do? Request away, but nothing. I wish more consideration in seating was given to couples. It wasn't necessary to put these women with us--at that time, there were many seats--so why do so? To accommodate the server? Alas, but it will color future considerations for dining at Sfoglia though we love the food."

  • "This place is amazing. It's very difficult to get into. They make their own bread and pasta daily. The pasta is unbelievable. Highly recommended."

  • "My husband and I had such a memorable dining experience here that when my sister in law and I had a few days together this past week, I decided to give Sfoglia another try hoping that I would not be disappointed or embarrassed by my recommendation. Sfoglia is the total package. Warm and friendly service, decor and superb food. I love that the staff does not try to up sell to add $$. Ours suggested splitting the delicious bib salad because there is enough for 2 to share. My SIL and I also split the pasta bolognese, which was delicious and plenty for the Secondi. The Sfoglia chicken is one of their mainstays and delicious as well. All in all, we had another lovely evening that I will always remember. "

  • "I have been to Sfoglia many times. This restaurant is suited for large parties. There is the chance to be seated at a communal table, which I do not mind at all. But every time I make a reservation for two they give me the worst table in the house, right by the entrance. Last night I was moved to a communal table which was lovely. No sooner did we have our water poured and our menus out when the maitre'd came back and told us that the table he just sat us at was reserved and we had to move. He had an attitude about it as if it were common for a restaurant to move people around. The tables seat 4 to 6 or more so if you have a large group you will be pleased. The table we had to vacate sat there empty for our entire meal. "

  • "I had high anticipation for a pleasant dinner. Unfortunately I am afraid it has gone downhill. I found the chicken soup with some kind of greens that was quite tasteless. The greens congealed and nearly choked my throat. The salmon was quite good, actually. I didn't find the service pleasant. The waiters were surly and that made me feel uncomfortable. The desserts were excellent, actually. I so hope it will improve as time goes on."

  • "We were terribly disappointed in our food and in the overall experience. The restaurant has not been the same since Adrian left. We will not be going back and our active cheer leading with friends and neighbors is over. So sad."
