A wonderful meal, perhaps our last before the next level of Coronavirus shutdown. We’ll be back.

The food was very good and choices adequate-- after all it is a pasta place. We came rather early and it was not yet crowded,but service was below par. It has been outstanding in the past. Waiter came when we arrived but then sort of disappered.
Food service good.

Server was not inattentive to our table BUT far less attentive than should be expected. She had 4 tables in our section, including ours and routinely came in and out of the dining room to freshen water cups and check on the other patrons without so much as looking in our direction. One at least 3 occasions I had to work to get her attention before she left the room again so that I could order something else or request salt and pepper. The food was delicious as always but the service was definitively subpar.

I wish there was a Sfoglina near me in Silver Spring! It is called a "pasta house" and they really do a stellar job. I had a fairly simple dish of pasta with clams, and I savored every bite. It wasn't too rich but had a lot of flavor. One of my friends tried the chickpea pasta and said she would come back to get it again. When choosing wines, the server recommended a wine that perfectly complemented my pasta. What I particularly appreciated is that the food is top-notch, the servers are all highly trained, and yet the atmosphere is comfortable instead of stiff and formal. This was my second time dining here and I plan to go back again.

Excellent value for brunch. Impeccable and knowledgeable service. We came with a young baby and they had a spacious table setup for us, away from the other diners. This was good - we were not worried about disrupting others’ meals!

The service from the hostess to the waiter and staff was top-notch. I mentioned it was a special dinner, a birthday, and a candle appears on the dessert.

Wow! This has QUICKLY become my new go to since moving to Cleveland Park. EXCELLENT service, authentic and DELICIOUS food, great for brunch or dinner, always bustling but never chaotic.

BUT they really stole the show when we set up a last minute birthday dinner for myself and my demanding entourage of boomer relatives. We got the private pasta room in the front and they could NOT have been kinder or more accommodating to my picky pack of suburban and country old folks (who I always am a little anxious about taking out in public in DC) .

I would give you 10 stars if I could Sfoglina!

Best service! Very friendly and helpful staff. Atmosphere and decor excellent. Unfortunately was disappointed with the food. Had high expectations but the pasta dishes were just "okay". The veal was tasty but expected to get the food when it was hot, not room temperature.

Friends and I went for brunch to celebrate my birthday. It was a wonderful brunch. The setting is pretty and easy to hear normal talking; the food was delicious, all service personnel were professional and made the experience a delight. Everyone was informed, attentive at a comfortable level, professional, warm, friendly -- the service was wonderful. I will come back for special events. Thank you!

We always pass by Sfoglina downtown and always curious about it. Finally, we decided to try it for Valentine's Day but was not able to secure a reservation-of course (deciding last minute is ALWAYS a bad idea)! Since their downtown location isn't open for lunch on Saturdays,we went to the Van Ness location. It certainly did not disappoint! A well deserved Michelin award. The food is fantastic and the ambiance is simply amazing. The staff are also very attentive. Glad the downtown location is in our neighborhood.
