Nothing special. Went for my birthday which they didn’t acknowledge. Arctic char was very good but small portion. Pappardelle with ragu sauce is saturated. Farro salad was too soppy wet.

Everything was amazing except the table was a little small and packed very close to neighbors. The food and service more than made up for it though.

Food and service was excellent but potions were small for the price. One in my party ordered ravioli dish for his entre and there were only 6 small pieces in his serving despite its $28 pricetag.

The service was good but we felt extremely rushed to get through our courses.

The food was good but not as flavorful as I had expected.

I confess that I prefer the Connecticut Avenue location, but the food and service were superb here too. This is a much noisier location, though we were very pleased that we were seated in one of the side rooms, where we had no problem enjoying a conversation without straining to hear. There were three of us sharing three pasta dishes, and each (the special tagliatelle with meat ragu, the squid ink pasta with lobster, and the buccatini) was delicious.

The bolognese was exceptional. I enjoyed the arugula and peach salad as a starter. I finished with a first rate tiramisu. The wait staff recommended an excellent super Tuscan to accompany the meal. Great service—attentive without being bothersome. Knowledgeable staff. Really good experience.

Friendly but awful service (forgetful, slow, forgot an allergy-which they comped us for). Food was fairly good and reasonably priced.

What a great place. A pretty room with excellent pasta. There were so many pastas I wanted to try that I want to go back and get the pasta sampler. Felt like pasta for my birthday dinner and it was perfect. Highly recommend it for any date night with or without the kids.

Staff were very attentive and responsive. Lunch menu was perfect; we enjoyed the pasta special and the branding. Noise level rose precipitously as the dining room filled, which was somewhat an issue as two of us have hearing aids. Finally, we never felt rushed.

What a wonderful experience. The food was amazing. And Service was top notch (Thanks, Kisha!). We enjoyed everything we ordered, but the polenta cacio e pepe and the squid ink pasta with lobster were the BEST. Great cocktails too. We will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our experience very much! Our waitress was very kind and informative, and the food came out within 10 minutes! We ordered the squid ink linguine & the carbonara. Our wine was delicious, the dessert was perfect (get the gelato with peaches), and it was an overall very romantic & homey experience. I studied abroad in Italy in college — Sfoglina made me feel like I was reliving parts of my trip. I will definitely come back for another special date night.

We had a wobbly table, but that was fixed quickly. The restaurant was easy to find although the room seemed smaller than the Van Ness restaurant. The wait staff was very knowlegeable and friendly. Food was attractively presented and was overall delicious. The bar seemed a bit slow, but the mocktails were great.

Both of us had dishes we liked, gnocchi with a porcini sauce and the carbonara. The gnocchi was some of the best gnocchi we have had. It was a little loud but still enjoyable.
