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.

Very good pasta. Our server was a little odd—hovering too much initially and then disappearing—but otherwise the meal went well.

The waiter treated us like we were eating at a diner. She had about 10 seconds for us when she came to take our order and looked so annoyed if we even hinted at asking a question. The food was pretty yummy but I don’t think I’ll be going back

We have been going to Sfoglia since it first opened.
The food and service are generally v good but I have 2 complaints:
1. The restaurant was once better lit but is now way too dark at dinner. It is ridiculous to need my phone’s flashlight function to read my menu. Also one cannot appreciate the colors and appearance of the food in such dim lighting.
2. $18 for the cocktails is also too high for what is essentially a neighborhood restaurant on Lex in the 90’s.

Wonderful atmosphere and service but a little pricey for what it is
Menu needs update, expansion
Chicken dish great but needs sides
Mushroom salad a little oily and small.
However, would dine there again.

Our waiter, David, according to the bill, made one appearance at the beginning of our meal and one at the end to retrieve the check. Other than that we never saw him. Other people took our order, delivered the food and drinks and otherwise provided us with service. At the end I asked explained to the waiter I was giving most of the tip to the manager because he never came to the table , he had no explanation, no apology, nothing. He just asked if he could remove the remaining dishes on the table at the end of the meal. It was one of the strangest experiences I've ever had at a restaurant. We have dined here at least a dozen times but never had anything like this happen. Very bizarre.

While always a neighborhood favorite, something's gone wrong in the kitchen and with the floor staff. Both pastas and entrees had to be sent back, the waiter disappeared and the manager on duty tried to fix things but also couldn't be found at the end of the evening.

Sometimes going back to an old favorite after a very long time is disappointing, the restaurant can have a miss. But here, it was such a low we will not come back. We were very disappointed, especially as the owner continually talks about its "standards" and then offers a mediocre interpretation of overcooked pasta, with the wrong name, and the assurance of the ignorant. What else, obsequious and pushy waitress (didn't think it was possible at the same time), bland dessert.

We always go to Sfoglia as my parents love their food! I’m not sure if it was an off night (but it was Saturday) however our server was not engaged at all and borderline rude and we were so disappointed! The food is still great but service for us is just as important. Our normal servers weren’t there but it definitely made me not enjoy my dinner as much.

Terrible meal and experience. We ate at Sfoglia Saturday night. We were shown to the worst table in the house. We were told there was no room in the nicer part of the dining room, although they continued to seat new guests there. Our food was terrible and poorly presented in very small plates. I had an appetizer with burrata on crostini. The bread was stale. I had a pasta with shrimp. The shrimp was rubbery and the pasta was tasteless. My sister had a fish that she could not finish. It was one of the worse meals and experiences I have had in NY in a long time.
