Dear Sfoglia friends and family, we are open for curbside pickup & delivery 7 days a week, from 4pm - 8:30pm! Please call us to place your order.
--------------------------------------------------
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.

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.

Given that this was outdoor dining, Sfoglia did a great job making it comfortable - and safe. Service and food were excellent.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.
