Sfoglia is a lovely little trattoria residing on an unassuming stretch of the Upper East Side, across the street from the 92nd Street Y. Farmhouse tables topped with the season's produce are the appropriate setting for Sfoglia's country Italian fare. The private dining room tucked away upstairs can seat an intimate party of twelve.

Sfoglia's Chicken Al Mattone
Sfoglia never disappoints! Standouts included the arugula and endive salad, the clams (a MUST) and the branzino! Also glad they now have stemmed wine glasses! 🍷🍷
Excellent dinner. Charming, comfortable space. Solicitous service. Great cocktails.
Our dinner was great! Love the Caesar salad!!
We enjoyed the delicious farm-fresh Italian menu as well as the farmhouse decor! Excellent service, too! Thank you— we’ll be back.
Their food has totally gone downhill.
They used to have really great food + selection, which, unfortunately is now very limited.
Their noise level is off the charts and they do nothing to curb it:(
All in all, I would no longer recommend it.
So sad to say:(
Excellent and inventive cuisine.
Eating outdoors on a bare metal table is like winging it. At least, give us place mats!
Lovely evening but the noise level made group conversation at our table of four difficult.
Outstanding, attentive service in a beautiful, inviting atmosphere.
Great quality in a nice environment. A classic place.
It is so wonderful to be able to eat indoors at this warm and charming restaurant. The food, as usual, is original and delicious and the service is friendly and professional.
Delicious food, great service, outside but protected from street noise by a well constructed patio. The burrata with fresh peas and rhubarb was amazing. Veal chops were crisp and delicious with a great salad. And the rhubarb tart was warm and satisfying.
Sfoglia is a consistently good small neighborhood restaurant. The food is always fresh, tasty, abundant and well-presented. Service this time felt a little pressured and/or snippy for some reason. Half-orders of pasta are generous, always yummy bread, three people shared one of the best Caesar salads in town, a freshly prepared ordered-in-advance strawberry tart with gelato? was also divinely shared. No wonder it can be hard to get a reservation even though they have much more seating now outside on a corner . Call well in advance.
I love going to Sfoglia. The staff is amazing and the food and drinks are terrific! You feel like you’re in an outdoor café in Italy.
The food was delicious. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. The ambiance was great. There was actually a wedding party going on on the downstairs level to give you some idea of how great a place this is.
Incredible as always. Best bolognese on Earth!
Staff is wonderful and attentive.
Space felt very safe.
Food was spectacular. Mg out of town guests were raving about how delicious their meals were.
Much needed "oasis" in otherwise culinary desert. Menu well chosen dishes and always tasty. Wine list needs some help; maybe a few wines under $50?
Consistently the loveliest people bringing Excellent quality and Delicious food.
Highly recommend their Caesar salad, Pappardelle and roasted chicken!
Incredible. One of the best spots on UES. Younger oriented too
Fabulous! Sfoglia chicken was amazing! Loved everything!
Olives appetizer was disappointing and overpriced. House cocktail was good. White wine by the glass was mediocre. Beef main tasted ok but the portion was minimalistic. Fish main was ok but not awesome. Overall, mediocre experience
Always great! The best food!
Amazing and romantic! Would definitely return! Thank you
Can’t wait to return!
Excellent food and service
Wonderful ambiance outside snd amazing service. The food is always top notch.
Un bon restaurant italien avec un bon rapport qualité prix. L’extérieur est comfortable et l’intérieur est charmant. Le staff est attentif et très serviable. Le menu n’est pas très long et c’est plutôt bon signe! À essayer si vous dans le quartier.
I can’t recommend more highly. Delicious food
Great UES Italian with amazing food and impeccable service!
Probably the best Italian food in NYC. Everything was perfect. The bread is home-baked and the dessert torte is phenomenal. The waitstaff is lovely and we were served everything without much of a wait even though the restaurant was COVID full. The papardelle Bolognese is always a winner, everything freshly made to order. Elegant, rustic atmosphere. Truly a winner every time.
If you can't get to Europe this spring, eating at Sfoglia provides the next best thing. Food was 5 stars for taste. Only problem was the chicken noodle soup had noodles that were totally impossible to keep on a spoon- after 15 minutes of them sliding off, we gave up. Wish there were more dessert options: only one (pre-ordered) tarte and 3 flavors of gelato. We passed on those options. With only one glass of wine between the two of us, it was $180 with tip.
Stellar, friendly service from vaccinated servers!
As always, a meal at Sfoglia is exceptional. Pastas are always heavenly, and the fish preps are innovative and delicious.
The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Great for a quiet dinner.
Wonderful! Our new favorite restaurant!
One of our true favorites! Amazing!
We have been coming here for years and the food is consistently delicious, the service caring and friendly, and the ambience warm and comfortable.
I had the worst Bolognese I’ve ever tasted. Was like cheap ground beef with a hint of tomato. I sent it back. They were very gracious but it’s sadly gone way downhill.
Sfoglia is fantastic as always!!!
