Great ambiance - sat on the rooftop and it was gorgeous. Only downside was the food in to-go containers but it still tasted very good.

My first time at this restaurant. Only thing above average in this “restaurant” is the view. Food is very subpar and expensive for the quality. It is clearly on par with the Cheesecake Factory. But the Cheesecake Factory has customer service which FAR exceeds this so called food establishment. All they did was make excuses for an entre that never made it to our table. And the manager was very rude. STAY AWAY!

I didn’t realize you had to email the restaurant directly to request a rooftop table when I booked through OpenTable, but the manager was very accommodating (especially since it was a Friday night) and the view of Washington DC was absolutely spectacular. Due to COVID, the excellently prepared entrées were served in plastic to-go boxes but the ribs and branzino were very delicious nonetheless. A very memorable experience with a professional and personable team!

It was a lovely meal, but the pasta was slightly undercooked and sitting on Wilson blvd is so-so in terms of a space to dine in.

Unfortunately the hostess was one of the rudest people I have ever met. She just stared at us when we walked to the stand and acted like she was doing us a favor by showing us our table. We had booked for the rooftop and told when we got there we had reserved it wrong so had to sit on the street and eat. The waitress was fantastic and the food was very good. The hostess was not a good person to start off the evening.

BEWARE. If you’re trying to get a reservation on the rooftop don’t do it here as “outdoor”. Despite the need to give a credit card for the reservation with a “penalty” of $25 per person if you don’t cancel 48 hours prior is for a seat alongside a road on the sidewalk with no view. Drinks were good but disappointed that I booked this thinking I’d be showing my out of town guests a great view of DC.

Great food and our server was amazing. We were dining outside and the seats are not equipped for the rain and night. Our umbrella didn't completely shield our table from the rain and after sunset, we had no light at our table. Overall, the food was amazing but the ambiance leaves much to be desired.

My recent experience at the Rooftop Terrace at Sfoglina is sparking interest in what other rooftop restaurants might be out there, waiting.

Maybe this is a whole new world that needs exploring ASAP while it’s still warm.

But getting back to the topic at hand... the space up there is really nice. Your seating options are (1) low couch-level or (2) higher pub-table height. Both are different from the ordinary, both are imaginative and romantic, both are great. We opted for a pub table. We were happy there.

It is also QUIET no loud house music and (usually I would think) no noisy people nearby. The lighting is good too. Lighting matters, a lot. Many venues do not understand this.

The small plate options are fine. Two of us ordered three of them and three was more than enough food. Wine by the bottle is sold at fairly outrageous prices I thought but there are by the glass options that are affordable and worked fine for us.

I look forward to going back!

Great dining experience! This was my first time dining at Sfoglina and it was during Covid (phase 3) so it was a lot quieter and less busy. Service was still excellent as was to be expected for a restaurant with the prices and location in Arlington.

I had made reservation for indoors not knowing if it would rain, but I was able to switch to outdoor patio seating upon arrival thanks to Covid. On any other “normal” Friday night, I am sure that wouldn’t be possible.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable and answered our questions about drinks and ingredients. We enjoyed some cocktails and burrata with roasted eggplant and tomatoes. Delicious!

I expect the menu was reduced because of Covid, but we each were pleased with our main dishes: the potato gnocchi, squid ink pasta and the cacio e pepe. They were pretty good portions and considering we had the complimentary bread and appetizer prior to, we were all stuffed at the end.

Lastly, we were served the hazelnut cake (with candles for one of our birthdays) and the gelato. Over all, great service and delicious food. Will be back!

Pasta was disappointing considering this is supposed to be their specialty. We tried 4 pastas, most were heavy, oily and the combinations were a let down. iThe only delicious squid ink with lobster was the the only pasta that stood out and was delicious. All the others dishes were too cheesy and gloppy. The setting is beautiful, the small plates were better. Definitely not the same standard as Fiola Mare.

I’ve been here many times and have always had an outstanding experience. Not sure why things were off this time, but service was incredibly slow the whole time. We had been seated for 25 minutes before our drink orders were taken, and it took at least another 15 minutes to receive our drinks. Our dinner took almost 3 hours end to end for no particular reason aside from slow service. Our waiter was lovely, and he did a good job. Just slow.

A DMV gem. Combining unbelievable leadership (Carla), hospitable management (Deanna), top mixologists (Chris) and pasta that's always fresh and creatively prepared, I cannot say enough about Sfoglina Rosslyn.

With a family style approach to eating, the three of us split five pastas, sampling the gnocchi, ravioli, squid ink pasta and spaghetti. Why choose one when you can try them all? (which Sfoglina makes easy to do, offering 1/2 size pastas)

Whether you're enjoying a meal on N Lynn Street, or a drink on the rooftop, you'll have a great experience here.

BEST: outstanding food, service, view and ambience.
WORST: poor reservation system, receptionist attitude, and small wine glass prices that are consistently more than an entire bottle of wine would cost retail.
ADVICE: Be prepared for attitude and go expecting to pay $150 for two for a small snack with one glass of wine. But enjoy the food and view!

We had a great family dinner at this fine restaurant. The mozzarella bar appetizer was outstanding and the main courses were delicious. The service was exceptional. To top it all off was a wonderful desert (the chocolate cake is amazing). They also validate parking. You can’t go wrong with this place. We will be back!

Everyone was wearing a mask, and you were able to see the kitchen staff wearing gloves as well... 1 young lady working in the bar area received a phone call...immediately after she was done took off her gloves, washed her hands and put on a new set of gloves... food was fantastic and everything was perfect...
Absolutely outstanding!
