    We have dined at Sfoglina Van Ness several times; however, this was the first time during Covid. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything about our dining experience was first class. Detail was paid to cleaniness by the servers and we will definitely return.

    My husband and I went to Sfoglina for our anniversary this year. It was the first restaurant we had visited since the COVID quarantine began. It was absolutely OUTSTANDING. The service, the food, the safety measures all were beyond impressive.

    This time Sfoglina was quite disappointing. The appetizers were as good as they used to be but the entrees were not the fine cuisine this restaurant used to serve. The raviolis were very heavy and had a chow type of taste and the branzino was tiny and served with a tomatoes sauce that overpowered the taste of the fish. The prices were extremely high for the quality and the limited menu offered. Overall we were not happy at all and will not be back. Sad really, this used to be such a good restaurant.

    Food was great. We were celebrating our anniversary which Sfoglina recognized with a lovely card but, unlike last year, no complimentary Prosecco. Otherwise we enjoyed our dinner, and welcomed the quiet that resulted from the separation of the tables. Sfoglina has done an excellent job of making the restaurant feel like a safe place to dine, despite coronavirus.

    Due to our current situation, we preferred to dine outside which was very nice just a bit noisy due to traffic on Connecticut Avenue. However, the food was wonderful specifically the kale salad. It was beautifully presented and tasted just as good. I had the brandzino and my husband had the seabass and we each had sides of pasta. All was wonderfully prepared. We will return to try another fan favorite.

    Sfoglina works too hard regarding the preparation of its pasta. They make their own pasta and it is outstanding, but then add too much flavor and ingredients to the preparation. Overall, the restaurant and its group is wonderful, but I can't help but wonder if there is a way to serve pasta simply prepared and, a little less pricey so that it doesn't break the bank to have a nice dinner on a Friday night.

    Sat outside because of COVID. Weather was great and outside seating was too. Both dishes my date and I had were terrific as were our cocktails. My only complaint is the portion size compared to price. I showed up hungry and left hungry. Great food and atmosphere, not so great portions.

    The food was outstanding as usual at Sfoligna - everything from the drinks to the food was prepared so well, so professionally. If the ambiance and service were affected, it is because of the COVID precautions imposed on the restaurant by DC. Not the fault of the very professional server, who had to work around these sometimes awkward hurdles to ensure we had a nice meal. I was surprised by the 4% sanitizing fee on the check at the end of the meal - I think that should have been made clear on the front end of the meal - but given the current environment, I was not opposed to paying it.

    The ambiance, service, and food are incredible. The cocktails however are inconsistent. One gin and tonic came perfectly mixed with the extra tonic water from the bottle on the side, and a dish of limes. The second was MUCH too strong and had no limes or the bottle of tonic. For $17 each I expected much better. My husband ordered a 7&7...instead he received a gin and sprite...gross.

    Great food as always. Outdoor seating was properly spaced apart and staff was masked and gloved. I understand the 4% sanitation fee but don’t necessarily agree with it. Everyone of us is hit by the virus and is financially impacted by it. Not sure why the restaurants feel this should be passed down to the customer. Also, not sure why it is a percentage of the bill. Whether I eat $300 of food or $100 of food, the sanitation is the same. So it should be a flat fee and should be voluntary.

    The food was good, but nothing above average for the restaurant class. The waiter only talked to my wife as if I didn't exist, until the bill came. The air conditioning must have been off or not working as it was just as warm inside as out. Not the experience we have had there previously sadly.
