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.

The food was great but the portions were a bit small for what you paid for. Lovely outdoor setting and great service! Will definitely be back and will certainly recommend!

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.

Such a wasted opportunity. You come in and they are making fresh pasta in front of you, wow should be amazing you think

Then you order and look around and find its all rather generic chainy looking and finally the pasta arrives and its a true disappointment, thick and flavourless, the sainsburys local pasta next door is better quality

Service is cheerful and italian

Food was excellent but service let them down. Had to remind them twice to bring food that had been ordered but not brought to the table. We weren't asked if everything was ok which is unusual in a restaurant of this quality. No parmesan offered on spaghetti? No milk bought with English tea......again had to attract attention to get some. Maybe because we were only drinking tap water ( dry January !) we weren't spending as much as the next person!! Maybe we were just unlucky!
Summary: food excellent.
Service: not so good

After booking reservations well in advance, the restaurant wasn’t able to find it. They had told us that open table made a mistake and overbooked after a certain hour that day. I showed the email with the resys to confirm I made it during the appropriate time. After stumbling on their words and telling us they couldn’t accommodate us, they sat us. With a dairy allergy, I asked if anything in our order contained dairy or if they can put it on the side the waitress said she would be able to. However once she placed our calamari on the table, it was covered in Parmesan and a cream sauce. When we asked to take it back and replaced with a meat dish, she completely ignored us until our 3rd request. Not only did they not serve us the meat dish, she brought back the calamari. The calamari didn’t smell good at all, in fact it stunk. Now 30 minutes in, we still were not served with utensils, the wine we ordered or bread in which every other table had upon seating. Additionally we order Bolognese, which was delicious, however my friend who wanted Parmesan and asked for it 5 times! After 20 minutes we had to walk up to the server to remind her that we were still waiting for it. After our meal, we asked for the check 3 times!!!!! 25 minutes later, we decided to find her in he restaurant so we can get our check. Awful service, completely understaffed on nye! On utter disappointment with the experience! Knowing they were completely booked they should’ve staffed the restaurant to a compadre their guest. I would not recommend especially when there are so many options for great Italian food at more reasonable prices

Delicious italian fresh pasta with gluten-free options. I guess we chose the wrong night though as the service was super slow. However our waiter was very nice and polite and apologized about the long wait.
