Love this spot! We just moved to cleveland park and I was worried there wasnt any good sit down Italian restaurants (pizza pizza everywhere). This place is great for dates, just friends, the food is delicious and authentic and the staff are super friendly and professional!
We were a party of 8 celebrating a great friend 64th Birthday. One of our party owns a fine wine store and we brought some special wine for the celebration expecting to pay a corkage fee as we have done in the past at Sfoglina. We gave the wine to the hostess and shortly the manager came over and told us they wouldn’t pour our wine as it was a Friday night. We were very disappointed. Our party would have opened 3 or 4 bottles but instead we only ordered one. It would have been better for the restaurants bottom line if the would have allowed us to drink the special wine we planned for this special occasion. We were disappointed as we love Sfoglina.
Good food, good service. Very enjoyable
Consistently excellent. Not inexpensive, but worth the experience for something special.
Sfoglina never disappoints! Excellent food and service! We'll be back.
A wonderful meal and a delightful busboy but unfortunately our waiter was very inattentive that soured the experience.
Excellent food and service!
Come b’Italia! (But only the hostess wished my husband a Happy Birthday, although I’d said when I made the Open Table reservation that it was to celebrate a birthday. Oh well.)
Great food and overall dining experience, will say a part of our brunch meal was delayed however staff took it off the bill. We truly enjoyed the meal and staff did a great job we will definitely return.
Lovely dinner. Delicious pastas.
The host at the front was so slow and took forever to seat us for our reservation, even though the table was open. Our server kept pushing for our order, but did not explain the menu or make any recommendations. About half an hour after we were seated, someone in a chef's jacket came and asked if we were being served. The food was decent, but overpriced for the quality. The whole restaurant felt disorganized and disjointed. I would not go back and do not recommend the Van Ness location.
Overall, Sfoglina Van Ness is a great place for lunch and dinner. The food is not only delicious, but it is beautifully displayed. I enjoyed the low noise level, a rarity in most restaurants, and good attentive service by the staff. Highly recommend.
We came here with my husband 6year old and 2 year old. Overall, they have a very strong orientation towards service! They were super accommodating and friendly. Nevertheless, our waitress was super slow. This is tough when you’re at dinner with a 2 year old. Additionally the food was delicious, but we ordered the meatball appetizer, which tasted great...but then I cut into 2 and they were pink on the inside (yuck). They replaced it for free with a delicious mushroom appetizer dish. So like I said overall the restaurant has a top tier orientation towards ensuring a good experience
Very nice pasta, good wine selections and solicitous service.
I love this restaurant. The food is almost always excellent and when it is not they will make sure you are happy with your dish or substitute. Very focused on customer satisfaction, wonderful environment, lovely for a great meal and visit with your dinner companion.
The waitress couldn’t care less about egg allergy. She said pretty much everything has eggs, and then my sorbet had a wafer in that she said was made with eggs. She said I can just simply take it out of the sorbet and not eat it. Anyone that knows anything about a food allergy knows that cross contamination is how most people have an allergic attack.
I was very disappointed in the value of the food. You would think for an Italian restaurant the food would be plenty. It wasn’t. I had to order two deserts and came back home hungry.
Server had table cleared before I was finished eating.
Also presented the check while I was still eating dessert.
Very cozy location with the best pasta we have ever had! Will definitely return!
A fantastic evening and had out of town friends join us. They LOVED it! Only feedback to share is that the food came VERY quickly once ordered...it's nice to have a few minutes to just enjoy the restaurant without feeling rushed. But all good otherwise!
Great food, friendly staff and fun atmosphere. I would highly recommend this establishment!
The food at Sfoglina is always first rate. The spicy grilled calamari appetizer and the mushroom gnocchi are in my top ten Italian dishes on the Eastern Seaboard. The staff are knowledgeable, warm and welcoming.
Every aspect of the experience was exceptional. The ambiance is so warm, charming, comfortable, and cozy. The fabric on the walls and ceiling, the different traditional plates, and other design elements made it stylish, elegant, and inviting. The service was impeccable. Everyone was friendly, attentive, helpful and informed on questions, and balanced to let us enjoy the evening. The food was outstanding. The meal was flavorful and appropriate sized portions. We celebrated with a bottle of Prosecco that was delightful. Desserts were simple and tasty. Overall, a wonderful visit and look forward to the next one.
A wonderful dinner on New Years Eve. Everyone in our party agreed we would return at again and again.
Amazing food and service as usual. To me, Sfoglina is the best restaurant in town!
An excellent experience. We felt totally spoiled on our 12th wedding anniversary. Delicious food and wonderful service!
Thank you to server Lisa who was so considerate. I caught her out of the corner of my eye waiting a few times to come over in order not to interrupt our conversation. What a rare treat. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
Came back to share this gem of a restaurant with family who cam in from out of town. A good time was had by all.
Food was too salty and very difficult to eat. Way overpriced.
The food at Sfoglina Van Ness was just as good as the food at Sfoglina downtown.
However, the service at Van Ness was really poor. Unforgivably slow at every stage of the meal. And nt at all gracious. While at the Downtown location the service was superb --incredibly gracious and welcoming. We look forward to going back to Sfoglina Downtown, but we probably wont bother going back to the Van Ness location.
Everything was perfect! A favorite restaurant when we are visiting DC
We love Sfoglina for a lot of reasons: caring and professional service, charming ambience in the back area especially and of course, the food. I had the Maria menu, which consisted of a very ample and fresh blood orange salad with a dressing that wasn’t cloying at all, a fish dish with white beans and sorbet for dessert, which my husband and I split. He had a papardelle dish with lamb ragu, which was a little too salty to his taste. Otherwise, it was a satisfying experience for midweek lunch dining.
Delicious pasta and great service. The Caesar salad was a bit odd, but it was traditional for the chef, so I went with it. This is delicious food. Loved it!
A wonderful tradition has just been started for Christmas Eve dinner after the Basilica in DC. Fantastic food, especially the pasta and wine! And a warm and family like atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Delicious cozy meal! Love this spot for a romantic date night or simply to have some pasta and wine!
Lovely Sunday night before Christmas. Food & service was perfect. Only negative was we were taken to our table 25 minutes after our reservation witch was for 7:45. Apologies were made by the hostess but that is a long time to wait.
This is my favorite restaurant in DC. Wonderful place, ambiance, food, service, ...
Great Brunch with pasta special and ricotta pancakes.
Had eggs Benedict, salty, perhaps the salmon and the sauce combined. Tried to eat it anyway, although heard the other diners complained. We have dined in here before and it was excellent. From food to service and quiet so I will still come back.
