Based in the heart of London, the City, Sfoglia Bologna will bring you the ultimate Italian cuisine experience.

We brought the Bologna's traditional cusine to Aldgate, with our signature fresh hand-made pasta.

We have installed a gluten-free kitchen to offer you the safety and taste you need, and import certified quality gluten free products as flours, pasta and hams directly from Italy.

Every day you can watch our "Sfoglino" making fresh pasta in front of you at our premises and soon you will have also the chance to learn all the secrets of fresh-pasta production from him with our exclusive courses that will start in January.

We were in London for my birthday and used sfoglia for our meal after having travelled up from the south coast. It was not a busy Friday night but the staff were very attentive and the food was lovely. Would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Italian food.

I am a regular visitor to Sfoglia. It is by far my favourite restaurant. They will always go the extra mile to ensure that the food is excellent and gluten free for me. A lovely restaurant and people. John

We had caponatina, puffy bread, and roasted potatoes for our appetizers/sides. All three of us in our dining party had a different favourite. But we all loved all the mains. Mine was the Tagliatelle ai Funghi, which was heavenly, but I'm also a big fan of the Tortellone di Zucca. Exquisite pasta.

Best arrabiata I ever ate!!! The restaurant is top quality and their hand made pasta is delicious. I also had the chocolate souffle after and it was just perfect. The staff are very friendly and they asked me how everything was and offered a shot of limoncello. I will definitely be visiting again soon.

The restaurant cancelled our booking 20 minutes before the booking time. When we phoned they said they were too busy to speak to us about it and we should call back in the morning. Really poor and rude service that ruined our evening.

Small pasta portions, under cooked, service appeared out of control. Poor salad. Stale bread served. A bad day perhaps for them but expensive versys competition. On the positive side, they served nice beer.

The worst food we have ever had, service was very slow, pricey and overall don’t worth it.
We got no words to describe this terrible flavors and food.
We ordered the selection of bread which was very soggy, old and cold ( like it was in their fridge for a whole month) and selection of cheese was terrible ( Parmesan cheese was moldy spoiled, emmental was very dry and main courses was worse( seafood pasta with empty couple of mussels and clams, tasteless tomato sauce and the chicken Milanese was a piece of dry flat disaster.

Overall the server was working by herself as a hostess + server + bartender but she was nice but very stressed.

100% don’t recommend it to anyone.

Just had a shocking experience at this 'restaurant'. Ordered a selection of Italian breads & charcuterie board for 2 to be presented with homogenous bread & just 2 meats (despite salami being offered to other tables), then they ran out of salmon & wine. Eventually had to leave after starter service was so poor & attitude to complaints was to threaten to call police & call all 4 customers liars.

The most amazing food and service! I came in asking for gluten free and the chef immediately spoke to me about their menu! They had fresh hand made gluten free tortellini - which I have never experienced in three years of gluten free - and they were so kind and fast!!

Had the best time here last night with my friends. The wine was good and the pasta (esp. carbonara) was incredible! Lots of tables outside so a great atmosphere. It was a very cold evening and although there are no heaters they did provide blankets. The manager (Sarah?) was so lovely, but seems like they maybe could have done with an extra member of staff at times.

The service was bad. The staff wasn’t even wearing masks and didn’t seem to speak english.

The waiting time was long for the food (bruschetta starter came 40 min after ordering), and the pasta was made too al dente. The staff should have asked how al dente do the customers like the pasta and not assume everyone likes the same level of hardness.

I did however appreciate that we were given an incorrect order for free.

The loveliest restaurant! We were lucky to sit next to the chef outside the window so we could watch her making fresh pasta and bread. When we were cold we were given beautiful thick blankets which was great. The staff were polite, funny and generally really nice! The food was the best Italian I’ve ever eaten, incredibly fresh as mentioned before it’s made there and then, so yummy! A lovely place and will definitely be back!

Pasta was a bit dry. Staff took a while to come to table and it was difficult to get their attention. Chocolate soufflé was nice. Need blankets or outdoor heaters as it was cold. Situated on the street near other venues to, but road is closed off for cars so it was quiet.

Luckily google reviews prepared us for the clumsy service. The restaurant serves excellent home-made pasta, unfortunately overpriced, in an impersonal canteen-like white hall. Non of the staff we met spoke Italian.
I appreciate money matters but their pasta would deserve to be delivered to more people at a fairer price in a more amicable fashion. This shop doesn’t do any justice to Italy.
