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.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.9

An import from Nantucket, Sfoglia is one of the few Upper East Side joints that, if transported to downtown, wouldn’t feel out of place.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

It is a perfect place to go until 6:30.

Then the noise level rises to an uncomfortable level.

The service and quality of food was delightful . You knew as soon as you tried the fabulous bread that you were in for something special

We happen to live nearby but this place is a total gem. I've been to Italy a number of times but have yet to find a restaurant so consistently great in the culinary department. My husband and I like to order two pasta dishes and share.....the bread is home made and is perfection. The help is very polite and has no airs of arrogance. It's a celebration every time we go there...the crowd is chic and of all different ages.

Side dis of snap
Peas was clise to inedible. Very stringy and tough. Should have returned them.

Scallop special was excellent but pricey. Prices went up in general since I was there last, unfortunately.

Their food is great!!!


They seem to have a big problem when it gets crowded.

The noise level then is unbearable.

But the real problem with the noise: they seem not to care.

This particular evening we were very lucky. We went early and there were not too many people there.

The food is superb.

This service is quite good as well, but.....


Their noise level rises to a deafening roar after 6:30. Have found this every time we go there.

They do nothing to mention to diners that, perhaps, it would be kinder to others, if they did not shout!

Sfoglia is a very reliable place where everything you order is good. I love their appetizers and pastas, I look forward to their dessert specials, and they have a solid wine list, but accept that you BYO wine for a modest corkage fee. It is really one of my favorite places in NYC.

All three of The appetizers and all three of the main courses that the three of us ordered were exquisite. The cocktails were intelligently designed and delicious. The atmosphere was friendly; the environment airy and pleasant. The only quibbles were with the desert (the pastry was singed) and the prices of the contorni.

The cheese plate was mediocre at best. The presentation was pretty but there was barely any cheese as the few slices they gave were paper thin. The waiter said the pasta was amazing so I ordered the one he suggested and it again was presented beautifully but it was completely bland. We had to ask for them to leave the salt and pepper on the table because the food didn’t taste like anything.

The restaurant has a rustic feel which is lovely but once the tables fill up the noise level gets so high that you can’t hear anyone else at your table. We couldn’t wait to finish eating and leave. Not sure how this place has survived.

We had never dined here before and decided to try it after one of the 92nd street Y talks.
Approximately 10 minutes after we had been seated, a large 30 person group affiliated with the speaking engagement came in and had a cocktail type party amongst the tables where we were sitting. The noise was deafening and we were ignored after asking the manager if he could reaccommodate us. The restaurant neither apologized nor offset our unpleasant experience.
It was extremely disappointing to not enjoy our meal and to rush through it so we could escape the noise.

This restaurant is always excellent. They made a mistake with my reservation (accidentally changed the time) but quickly resolved it and got us seated. I love the frequent menu updates to seasonal ingredients. Pre-order the dessert with your entrees and get the antipasti to share.

UES neighborhood gem+staple. This place is good if you didn’t cook dinner and didnt want to cook dinner but need a good meal; it is good if you have a date night; it is good if you just need a quick bite with a nice glass of wine. It is even great for celebrations. Great food, great people.

This place was a recommendation from my daughter. I'm proud to say we taught her well.
This is a charming, romantic, first-rate restaurant that lets you know right from the moment you arrive that attention to detail and over the top service are number one priorities. We were seated immediately and David (Bravo, David!) welcomed us. We knew instantly that we were in good hands.

Our experience here was everything we hoped for. Just dine here. It's delish.

This is a treasure. Low profil and totally randow discovery it is the place we love to go when we visit NYC. 5 minutes walk from central Park it's the perfect place to bring a date and eat the best food in this area. You have to try the parpadelle bolognese and the chicken. You'll want to go back the second you finish your meal. Love this place so much

Food was exceptionally tasty. Good wine list. Staff were efficient and helpful. We met an old friend for dinner and we found that Sfoglia allowed us to carry on a conversation without shouting. (It's a big plus for us and not always achievable ). This is not a budget dining experience but we found it was worth the outlay. Sfoglia is diagonally across from the 92Y which makes it very convenient for ticket -holders.

Had another rewarding and delightful visit to Sfoglia! The manager (I'm making assumptions--she was 'working' the tables but not taking orders or bringing food) was incredibly warm and welcoming, and happy to be of assistance with their small, eclectic but delicious wine list. The food--as always--was amazing, with the highlight being the spaghetti with ramps and egg yolk, that is new on the spring menu. Dessert was a tart featuring fresh local rhubarb that I could eat every night of the week! This continues to be both a friendly, warm neighborhood spot yet, for some of us, a destination dining experience worthy of the Uber ride to get there and all the other restaurants one would pass along the way to do so.

Tired French country decor. Ordered only the antipasti and what I received looked and tasted nothing like any antipasti I’ve ever had. It was essentially leftovers put into little piles around the plate. Inedible, and the $26 price was insane. It appears they are able to remain open because of the local regulars who have few dining choices in the neighborhood. Horrible. Wouldn’t return if you paid me.

First time at the restaurant this week. The entire experience was exceptional from the service to the food. The wine list, though limited is very good. The bread is amazing and the apple tart was the best our group had ever had. Can't wait to get back.
