Everything was wonderful. The service was especially good and the ambiance was lovely. Of course the food was incredible; the swordfish and polenta were my favorites. My one complaint was that the beef short ribs dish was tiny for the price. I remember having this the first time I went to the restaurant when it just opened and the portion size was more generous and more tasty!
We have been to Sfoglina Van Ness numerous times since it opened ( and got a Rave Review in the Washington Post!). We've introduced many friends to this restaurant, which always provides a delicious meal and lovely ambiance.
It is our favorite restaurant in DC!
Sofglina makes such a good variety of pastas. And the bartending is excellent, too.
Food is wonderful. The restaurant is beautiful. Service is very good. It’s pricey, however, and most budgets can not afford it for everyday dining.
Lovely place. Perfect for special occasions. We shared appetizers and main courses and it was perfect.
Boring bread Safeway quality.
Focus on sell more food rather than our experience
We had an excellent dinner, flavorful in a lovely setting. The pasta sampler complemented the fish entrees. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Perfect dinner. We split the 3 pasta dinner (there were 3 of us) and also had the delicious peach/ arugula salad. Maybe somebody mentioned a birthday and voila! They brought a complimentary gelato dessert to the table. Highly recommended.
Best plates of pasta we've ever had in a restaurant!
Grilled calamari was awesome as well.
Birthday dinner. Everything outstanding never disappoints
All the food seemed insipid compared to the downtown location.
Very pleasant surroundings. Nice surprise was paid parking at van Ness location.
Best pasta and over all value in town. Ingredients are fresh and seasonal, portions are perfect and swirl ice cream is delicious!
Great dinner. Delicious food. We loved our table.... very cozy. And our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable and adorable
Dinner was wonderful - the food was great as was the service.
Everything was wonderful. Excellent food; love the surroundings; and service was very good. It was a Wednesday evening, which I gather would not have been terribly busy, but was -- so the waitstaff were really hustling. We were served efficiently and pretty timely, given the crowd. Really, that's not a complaint, just the reason service gets a "very good" versus "excellent." Also, we really appreciate that quiet conversation is easy -- no blaring music, like in some restaurants. Will definitely return.
Lovely setting though music too loud Food as always was fantastic.
Excellent! Very much enjoyed eating outside. Food and service were both great.
Service and food were impeccable. We will return soon.
Sfoglina (Van Ness) is amazing! I have never been to a restaurant so many times where the quality is as consistently fantastic as it is at Sfoglina. Every person that works there is so nice and so accommodating, and the wait staff is always up to speed on every nuance of every dish they serve. One of the best restaurants in DC.
Great food - will definitely return!
Always best food, service and a comfortable ambience.
Loved the evening and the dining
Great pasta and exceptional service. You can't go wrong at this restaurant.
3rd time here. 1- my guest said beef short rib was “so-so”. 2- asked for salt. Waiter said could not leave it on our table because people steal salt shakers. 3- pasta dish was drenched in way too much oil and a bit over cooked. Peaches in salad were not ripe - hard and tasteless, and greens not fresh.
These are details that discourage me from going to this relatively expensive place. Still have money on gift card so will try once more - that’s the only reason!
Excellent food and ambiance, loved the decor and was really very impressed with service.
I like the limited menu but would like to see a couple more dishes other than the pasta.
We've been to Sfoglina before and loved it but this time was really sub-par. Service was not very good (slow, unattentive) and while pasta was spot on, the sauces weren't anything special.
We had a wonderful good-bye dinner with my daughter and her husband, who are moving out of town. All four of us really enjoyed our pasta dinners, and we were able to have a good conversation at a relatively quiet table, which made it even more enjoyable.
For Lunch Sfoglia was an extremely civilized place to spend a couple of hours with good company
As usual, we had a wonderful time. The service was amazing and the food was out of this world. I appreciate how you can feel comfortable in various forms of smart dress and I love how accurate they are with reservations, orders, and allergies. Overall, an amazing experience and amazing food! Definitely a must try!
Best Italian food I've EVER had. Gnocchi, meatballs, lobster, desserts, everything was amazing.
Decor was great, food (pasta) was outstanding, service was perfect.. well done
I was celebrating my birthday and chose Sfoglina to do so. The last time we ate there we sat at a table in the very back where two of us were facing the back wall of the restaurant. My wife made the reservation and wanted to insure that did not happen again. She told them we were celebrating my birthday. The entire purpose in telling a restaurant that we are celebrating an special occasion is to have them look after us and give us a better table. We were seated in the bar. There was a steady stream of traffic walking behind us. There was a second problem. I ordered the pasta tasting menu. My wife and I had previously shared it on another occasion. This time they brought me three full orders of pasta at the same time. It would be impossible to eat all three portions. And as I tried to alternate between the three dishes, they got cold. I know the owner has superior cooking skills. My wife and I have dined at his restaurants since he was at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons. We love Fiola and Del Mar. His restaurants are expensive. I was disappointed and my entirely reasonable expectations were not met.
Wait staff were extremely abrupt and impatient. Food was very good but there was a feeling of being rushed
the food was terrific: shared meatballs with soft polenta; I had special pasta of night with tomatoes and soft shell crab; he had squid ink pasta with lobster. All delicious!! We loved the food and our waitress was lovely and appropriately attentive. BUT, we were served our appetizer within 3 minutes of ordering it; then the entrees came right out and we were done in no time at all. Not what I want on a relaxing Saturday night out. That is a draw back! And it is expensive!
Consistently excellent food and great service. Our new go-to restaurant for Italian food.
Best pasta in town!
Pretentious restaurant. The appetizers not good. The pasta dish was better but nothing out of the ordinary. The noise level on the patio was very high and there were ceiling fans creating wind that was very uncomfortable, we had to request to move inside. The main server was very nice but she was overwhelmed.
