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 has done a marvelous job with outdoor dining. They serve the same fabulous menu in a charming street setting.
Some of the best pasta on the Upper East Side - great service and outdoor seating
This place is the best and the staff is so friendly!
Have not dined here for a long time. Always difficult to get a reservation.
Our meal was superb and we loved the outdoor dining.
A wonderful evening out during these trying times:)
I have always loved Sfoglia and I realize that these are trying times but the food wasn't up to its old standards. The shrimp cevice was overcooked and iodiny, the pasta vongole was way too salty. Not what I've come to love at Sfoglia. Waiter was lovely and dessrt was great, as was the bread.
Food was delicious. Outdoor seating is safe and we were dry during a torrential downpour! Service was impeccable.
We liked it a lot, very good food and service. We will be back and we do recumbent the place. Gracias.
Given that this was outdoor dining, Sfoglia did a great job making it comfortable - and safe. Service and food were excellent.
Food was amazing and better than a lot of places that I dined at in Italy. I can't wait to go back. Friendly staff.
We dined outside. The tables were set well apart one from another. The service was friendly and the food and wine did not disappoint!
Really amazing food but I wish they had regular beef penne pasta
Outdoor dining but service and food consistently tops
Best restaurant on the UES!
It was great!
Outside dining was a good experience
Food remains delicious.
Service remains warm and unobtrusive.
Outdoor area is appropriately distanced and we all felt safe.
The best food we’ve experienced in a long time...
It felt like the quality of food went down while the prices went up post-COVID lockdown. While I wasn’t disappointed, per se, my meal (2 entrees, appetizer and $55 bottle of wine) felt over-priced for what I got.
Excellent as always!
The Sfoglia experience was superb. They made our anniversary dinner very memorable.
Food was delicious and the service excellent! We will be back soon!
Sfoglia is the hidden gem on the UES with fabulous food and service. It is one of my favorites for celebrations.
Service was great until the food arrived. Then they were nowhere to be found.
Defiinitelly overated. My wife and I had a bad experience there, starting with the appetizers (expensive and small), and finished with the entree (which took aproximately 40 min to be ready, and the pasta was raw). I'll never return in this restaurant.
The improvised street dining was festive and the service was excellent and friendly. The food was delicious, creative, and prepared with attention to texture and taste. Even old standbys like gazpacho and Caesar salad had interesting additions that made them new again (ie gremolata on the salad).
The tagliatelle with tiny clams was prepared with hot peppers, the chocolate semifreddo with a topping of sea salt and roasted, chopped almonds. And the home made bread!!!
I’m looking forward to my next visit at Sfoglia.
Excellent service and food
Food and service as excellent as ever with lovely well spaced tables outside.
Their take on a Caesar salad with wonderful anchovies never disappoints
A must destination for UES outdoor dining!
Staff and service amazing! Beautiful outdoor space set up. We win be back!
Even outside in the heat and humidity of a NYC summer we loved every minute at Sfoglia. From the cheese plate to the pasta and veal milanese, every bite is delicious and thoughtfully prepared, and the staff is warm and attentive.
Great food, excellent service. We felt safe and romantic!
Dining alfresco at sfoglia exceeded expectations, given social distancing guidelines. Tables were widely spread out along the side street and it felt like dining in Europe. As always, food was delish and will do this again!
I used to be a frequent customer here so was excited about the new outdoor dining option.
While eating on Second Ave is ordinarily not appealing, the muted traffic of late made it nearly pleasant! That is, until some closeby Van’s car alarm blared for >15minutes.... not the restaurant’s fault but still, not fun during any meal costing Sfoglia’s newly pumped up prices.
Server was nice but scarce.
Bread, as always, excellent.
Papardelle, as always, superlative.
Busman rude and demonstrably resentful when asked to supply a knife.....uncomfortable.
Caesar salad, Burrata and chicken Martone all reliably good.
Pre-ordered peach pastry totally not worth it.
In summary, we all put up with the noise, attitude and high prices because select dishes (bolognese, Chicken and Caesar salad and bread) are so fantastic now and then...
Even during the pandemic, with mandatory outdoor dining, the service is excellent and the food is wonderful.
It was great! We went for my husband's birthday and had a lovely time despite outdoor COVID dining. Nice staff- making the most of a tricky situation.
Wonderful service and setup for outdoor dining - thank you!
Hidden gem! Love their papardelle and their peach crumble. Their shrimp ceviche is superb.
Amazing local italian food on the upper east side. Everything is special.
Love this place.
Sfoglia is a wonderful restaurant and definitely a jewel for the neighborhood. We are never disappointed and we eat there fairly regularly. The staff are terrific, the ambience is lovely (they even did a very nice pandemic patio setup), the wine list is great and the food is fantastic. I know that great quality food comes with a cost, but my one thing would be that the prices do seem a little higher to similar spots. That being said, still totally worth it, we just reserve it for more special nights out as a result, which in and of itself is a compliment to Sfoglia.
