Every single person is genuinely happy to see you, and everything was safe, and beyond delicious... as always. The manager Elle runs an amazing team. Can’t wait to go back
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.
It is noisy to sit next to the sidewalk but it is great to be outside and safe with great food and service
We had a superb dinner, dessert and a Rose. Wonderful service from Anna. We were also pleased with our outdoor patio seating.
Yummy birthday dinner!
First time at Sfoglina and it was a wonderful experience! Our server was attentive and made great recommendations. We were the last party to leave and everyone was friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and overall fantastic dining experience. Another Fabio Trabocchi success!
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.
Made a reservation for a birthday dinner and went just as expected. The experience was memorable and highly recommend to anyone.
Wonderful service and wonderful setting.
And the food is simply superb.
It's hard to go wrong with Sfloglina!
The food and service were wonderful. Everything was great. I think the meatballs with risotto and pasta with pancetta and sunny egg were our favorites. The technology where u were able to easily access menu on cell phone was innovative, super easy and fun. I would have given all 5s except for one complaint. When I made reservation 2 days prior on Open Table I specifically asked for an outdoor table. When we arrived we were told that request could not be accommodated. There were many more outdoor tables than indoor- maybe 20 outdoor and 4 indoor. Seems that with making reservation in advance my outdoor request should have been accommodated. At at a minimum staff should have called or texted that outdoor table was not available. Once we arrived at restaurant it was too late to make alternate plans. But I would have appreciated advanced notice. Very glad we stayed but next time I hope request will be honored or notice given beforehand if it can’t be.
Everything was outstanding! Our waiter was incredible and so was the food!
For a small reunion, we chose to eat outside at Sfoglina Van Ness for our first time eating out since quarantine began. It was so lovely. The food was delicious; the staff made us feel safe; we didn't feel rushed. It was the perfect first venture out.
Sfoglina Van Ness is doing a very good job of managing everyone's safety and health these days.
Very good food and service in a pleasant place. The servers do need to remember to SPEAK LOUDLY through their masks.
wiaters could say that food will take a long time to be ready
Excellent pasta dishes with a variety of choices. Very easy for gluten free dining. they offer two kinds of gluten free pasta (a rice penne and a corn spaghetti) that can be substituted for the base pasta in their other dishes.
Outside. Summer day. Some shade.
We ate outside. It was a little warm at first but the sun moved enough for it to be comfortable. Would recommend reservations 7pm or later if eating outside. The ceiling fans definitely helped. Great food and service. Sangria was excellent!
We were seated on the patio, as requested. Our servers were masked and courteous.
Special meal requests were accommodated without a problem.
Al overall spectacular experience!!
The whole experience was delightful. Amazing service, incredible food and drinks. I look forward to going back.
The food is delicious and presented very well. The lemonade is very fresh amd tasty- must taste if you dine here
The food was nice and the waiter exceptional!
It was lovely to eat outside. Staff were very attentive and careful. Food was delicious. Highly recommend.
We chose Sfoglina for our 20 year anniversary celebration, bc last year we went to it’s sister restaurant Fiola Mare and had such a wonderful experience. Sfoglina did not disappoint. Their service is top notch! The black squid ink pasta with lobster was exactly what we were craving at the moment. So delicious, and the sauce was decadent. Their lemon hazelnut was moist and full of flavor. They started us off with a complimentary glass of Prosecco which we thought that act was kind, gracious, and attentive being that they knew it was our anniversary. They ended the service with a complimentary vanilla bean gelato that was the best gelato I’ve ever had besides having in Europe. Thank you Sfoglina for making our night so special especially since we had to cancel our 20th celebratory trip to Europe due to the pandemic. I think we’ll be starting a tradition returning to one of the Fabio Trabocchi restaurants year after year to celebrate our future anniversaries.
It's a wonderful restaurant with mouthwatering fresh pasta dishes, good wine list, great appetizers and seafood dishes and tasty desserts.
An amazing restaurant with top quality food while still being affordable.
Divine pasta, attentive service, nice outdoor seating
Happy to be back. It was pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the good good in a an appropriately distanced setting.
We dined in the outdoor space. Tables were well spaced, all servers and greeters were masked, and the restroom was attended after each use. The food and service lived up to our expectations based on a number of experiences we had there prior to the quarantine. We would return.
Restaurant does a great job of following and setting very high levels of cleanliness and sanitation. Makes you as a guest feel comfortable.
Service above and beyond, attentive, shared pasta was split in kitchen without us asking - same for the gelato swirl. Bravo!
This was our first time dining here since the pandemic shut everything down. We sat at a table inside and were impressed by how careful everyone was with regard to making us feel safe. We were advised at the door of what was expected of us regarding mask wearing. We were able to scan a code for the menu and were given paper sleeves for our face masks. All the staff were very respectful of the "new normal" . In addition, the food was fantastic. Can't wait to return.
Sat in nearly empty room inside for lunch, so with AC and windows looking out. Food as great as ever.
Great food and service. Very accommodating staff and good social distancing and protocol.
Excellent meal as usual! The 2018 Alcesti Frappato was a revelation—1st Frappato that I have tried.
Fine dining with delicious, well-prepared and visually attractive food. Pricey, but worth the splurge occasionally.
Wonderful, light and seasonal Italian foods. Great service. Anna was excellent. A bit pricey, expected in these reduced customer loading times.
Incredible safely-established measures that made our experience superb. Social distancing and respectful consideration was wholly adhered to. The chef was outstanding, the Prosecco, the salmon, the veal, and the cheese bar starter worth every penny! Alas, fine dining!!! We will definitely be returning.
Perfect dinner even in Covid times!!!
This is my favorite restaurant.
