Premium prices - low standard service. We ordered 3 starters and for some reson staff thought that we wanted them at different times, while starters should be brought together. During the meal we were only attended once and when we paid we had to ask the waiter to bring our change -shockingly. After we said thank you the response was... More

with a group of 10 we ate there under the tent on the plazza. Food was very good (fresh fish) and good value (cocktails, starters plates to share, main and plenty of wine for about € 46 each)

We visited the restaurant on Mother's day. Suprisaly enough it was very nice and quite as it was mother's day we thought it might be very busy and noisy. The area is nice and relaxing and nice atmosphere. They do not overload the restaurant with many people, so everyone will enjoy good space. We noticed they do not have a... More

After finding most other restaurants crowded and noisy at 2.30pm on a Saturday afternoon, we came across La Sfoglia by chance - and what good luck it proved to be! We ate in the outside area under a tented roof, shady and cool and very spacious. The service by Dorothy and Anna was polite and courteous and Owen was able... More

Thanks to a recommendation of our concierge, we ended up eating at La Sfoglia one evening. We were seated in a gazebo / party tent on a square right next to the restaurant, which was actually really nice! The waiters were even kind enough to provide us with portable heaters (it was quite chilly), We had the fish soup and... More

From the generous dish of nibbles whilst reading the menu, to the excellent wines and recommendations, to the meal itself, it was perfect. Jerome and Oswald had exactly the right timing for suggestions, service, plate clearing...and the food?? Divine. A monster bass covered in sea salt was displayed......and then we are eating the perfectly cooked translucent, pearly fish.... For fans... More

We were lucky enough to pass by and stop at La Sfoglia late in the lunch service. Our food was excellent, with my sea bass some of the best fish I've ever been served. The outdoor seating was comfortable and the service impeccable.

If its meat , fish , soup or pasta every dish is just perfect . Not leaving out the dessert especially the traditional imqaret with ice cream.
