We experienced Lovely table servers, prompt and accommodating. We sat outside under the awning, during which a rain storm blew through. The staff whisked away glasses before anything was broken (except one drinking glass) and attended to swiftly gathering the chair cushions from the wind and rain.
We were duly entertained.
My husband had the anchovy crostini for an appetizer, and I enjoyed the gnocchi’s with mushrooms, while he had the Pasta special with soft shell crab which was excellent. We shared the grilled asparagus which was also very good. The bread and olive oil were nice. We Wanted some sorbetto, for dessert, but they were out of the flavor we wanted.
It was an excellent meal, and we will definitely go back.
Thank you Chef excellent meal
Although the food was great, even after validating the parking, we were charged $23 to park in the building
Excellent food coupled with world class service shows us why Fabio is the kind of the DC food scene. Coming here for my birthday was an absolute treat. Our server and the manager made everything amazing.
Charming spot with pastas that are clearly homemade. All of the food was well prepared. I wish the menu was a little broader in terms of pastas and mains, but that's a quibble at most. Quite a nice wine list with a decent amount of variety in terms of both varietals and price points.
We enjoyed our dinner at Sfoglina very much. The food was very good and our waitress, a beautiful young woman from Eretria, was very attentive and friendly. We got there late but they still let us stay as long as we wanted to. I've never liked calamari but Sfoglina's was tender, not at all rubbery, and delicious.
So special-delicious food, great service, charming atmosphere - look forward to my next visit!
Sfoglina is one of our go-to places for lunch when we go into DC. Best pasta in town. The food is consistently well prepared, the service is friendly and attentive and the seating is comfortable. Our most recent visit was just as pleasant as the previous trips. The menu changes periodically, which is another plus.
Sfoglina continues to deliver great food and great service. The food is inventive and interesting, with flavors blending nicely with our wine. Overall, we had a wonderful meal there this Saturday night and left happy.
freshness of the pasta was immediately evident. we did the pasta tasting (3 pastas shared between 2 people), and all of the dishes were delicious. The portions were sizable - we could not finish all the pastas (we had a salad as well).
The Roman style Bucatini was TO DIE FOR. Cheesy but not heavy, perfectly cooked pasta, lovely lemon and black pepper flavors.
Everything we consumed was light, fresh, and well-flavored. Definitely coming back again for special occasions!
The special pasta of the evening was very heavy...soft shell crab...and the shell was not soft!
I couldn’t understand the waitress; she had an accent that made ordering very difficult.
Coffee was warm, not hot.
Great meal and experience
Squid appetizer was excellent. The pasta of the day was gloppy, too much olive oil and pesto masked the taste of the spring vegetable and shrimp.
We had a waitress and also a different person who brought the food to the table. Sfloglina does not have a good handle on how to pace the arrival of food. We had just received our appetizer when our pasta dish arrived. The woman bringing out the second course wanted us to move our plates over to make room for the pasta dishes! Seemed surprised when we asked her to take the food away and bring it back AFTER we finished our first course.
Had been previously and were excited to go back. Didn’t quite live up to expectations - service was good and they acknowledged our special occasion celebrations which was appreciated. Half of the pastas we ordered were good and the other half too spicy or had no flavor. Likely won’t be heading back soon.
This restaurant understands hospitality and warmth. The staff were knowledgeable, warm and helpful. The cocktails were handmade. I asked for a lemon drop and it did not disappoint. It was fresh squeezed lemon and they asked whether I preferred a sugar rim or not. We had the Persian cucumbers with the 24 month prosciutto, which was a perfect combination/starter. We opted for fresh pasta courses, which were perfectly prepared. The wait staff helped us pick an incredible wine to pair well with both ofour entrees. The only thing that could of made our evening better was to be provided a choice of seating. We had a 6:15pm reservation and there were many seating options, but was not offered a choice or asked our preference.
One of my favorite restaurant to go if I want a special treat for lunch. I love the Healthy Mediterranean menu option.
Great dinner for anniversary celebration. Love the lamb ragu and the anchovie appetizer. Only (very small) gripe was the temperature in main dining area near cooking area. On a warm humid night, a little more AC would have been welcome. Didn't detract much tho from a memorable evening.
Loved the food at Sfoligna! The pasta was amazing and so was the appetizer we ate. Unfortunately it was 90 degrees outside, and we were seated right next to the kitchen. We were uncomfortably warm. On a hot day, I would recommend asking to not be seated next to the kitchen -- next time we will request to be moved. Otherwise, great food!
The food and service were terrific! Ambiance was fine, but we chose to sit outside, so it was a bit loud. Not horribly so, but a bit. It was also warm! But, that's our fault not the restaurant's!
Superb pasta special. Wonderful ambiance.
Food, service and ambiance
We had an 8:45 reservation but the kitchen closes at 9 on Sunday. We should have been made aware of this ahead of time and would have gone somewhere else had we known. We were rushed to order, eat and leave from the moment we got there. It was overall very rushed and unpleasant.
Good neighborhood restaurant. Good food. Quiet. Outside table was nice.
Our second visit and can’t wait for our third! Everything is so simple and so perfectly prepared.
Our first time here and it was a delightful experience. Stellar service, from start to finish. Warm greeting at the door and when leaving, excellent table service - there when we needed them, but unobtrusive. Everything we ordered was beautifully plated and nicely cooked. Branzino was delicious, grilled asparagus was cooked just right - not overdone. Spinach pasta with pork bbq was unusual and very good. Very nice to see a good selection of mocktails. We will return.
I always love the food here — everything is delicious.
Great food and atmosphere. The pasta and brunch were amazing. Our waiter was super attentive to my 5 year old. The portions were very generous.
No fresher pasta around with delicious sauces. Appetizers we're special.
Overall a great experience. Will be back.
Had the branzino and my friend the veal. Half portion of pasta and cauliflower and salads in advance. Simply outstanding !
Sfoglina is a fabulous restaurant. Its ambiance is divine, and the food is extraordinary, at least mine was. My husband ate the lasagna and didn't find it so special, whereas my polenta was divine. I also ordered a salad which was terrific; it was even delicious the second day, as I brought home most of it. It was my husband's birthday celebration, and the restaurant helped us celebrate in style with a special piece of birthday cake, the chocolate cake he ordered and, to top it all off, ice cream that was on the house. I can't wait til we can come again to this delightful spot! Thank you so very much!
We had nice time and food/service were good.
My one and only complaint is that they seat parties of two directly next to each other when there are other available tables for two that are empty and remain so for the duration of the meal. I have not encountered that anywhere else. If a restaurant is not crowded, a host/ hostess tends to give customers some privacy.
Innattentive service, very long wait for food and the room was stuffy and hot. Waiter said there was nothing he could do about heat. Food was average
Service was RUSHED. we were still chewing out appetizers when entrees came out. (This was after manager tried to bring them out, saw we were still eating and placed our meals in waitress stand). Very disappointed.
Excellent and delicious pastas, mains, and sides in a relaxed atmosphere with attentive and friendly service.
Absolutely delicious food and great service. Won’t wait for another special occasion to return.
Great atmosphere for a meeting. Great service and great food
Excellent as always, from the service to the quality and freshness of the dishes we ordered.
Fantastic experience here. All the courses were incredible. The lasagna is by far the best item on the menu.
