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.

Super Meal before an event at the 92nd Y

We ate here before attending an event at the 92nd Y across the street and it was superb. The bolognese sauce was to die for and the service was impeccable. It is a bit pricey but great service and energetic vibe!

Dining at Sfoglia is a return to the day when neighborhood restaurants had the best food in the city. This wonderful restaurant, with a simple, expertly presented and prepared menu and wine list is easily a five star. And not just a Trip Advisor five star - Sfoglia has the best pasta in the city, on par with the pasta... More

We were encouraged to go here by some friends who come to NYC several times a year and makes this a regular stop. The food was terrific and we really liked the look of the place. They sat us downstairs and we liked the feel of the lower ceiling. The wait staff is attentive. They do a great job of... More

I need to go bace to fully evaluate this restaurant. The service was excellent as was the abbience. However the food needs another look. The pasta was overcooked and the Chard was undercooked, while the dessert was just taken out of the refridgerator and served too cold. We were the only partyin the restaurant for lunch, and this shows either... More

Ahhhh, everything was perfect - interesting, tasty and unusual antipasti; wonderful salads; perfect entrees including the highly acclaimed chicken and pappardelle alla bolognese. We had a party of 8 and requested family style servings which the waiter accommodated, even though it was last minute. The vegetable sides were yummy and all desserts were to die for, the best chocolate cake... More

The experience starts when you are received at the entrance, even without reservation. A homy atmosphere immediately flows and welcomes you. Not two tables are the same. They come straight from homes. What is special about the food, is that it is different from what every Italian restaurant serves in new York. Variety of pasta, great antipasti and delicious deserts... More

Sunday night dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine cost $200. The staff could not wait to drum us out and in the process spilt my wine. Food was ho hum. Antipasti was tasty but their signature chicken was served without vegetables and too much oil. The pastry on the pear tart was burnt and unpleasant. There are better... More

I had a dinner with my wife. We were warmly welcomed by the owner or manager. The inside of the restaurant was a bit dark, which was a good atmosphere for us. We ordered assortment of appetizer, grilled salmon, and squid ink risotto. The The appetizer was almost vegetables, and this was not tasty for us. The king salmon itself... More

One of the best spots on the Upper East Side. It's always a great dinner at Sfoglia. Service can be a bit pretentious but not always. The bread is to die for and the food is always fresh and hearty.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
