This part of the isle is inexplicably underserved by the usual Manhattan cutting-edge restaurants. Sfoglia is an exception; the rusticated decor is a pleasing visual backdrop to the simply prepared authentic Italian dishes. where quality ingredients are the stars, not overly-done preparations. Book way ahead because it's usually booked solid on weekends.

Went here for my cousins graduation dinner with my family. Party of 9. We got offered the private dining area upstairs and it was lovely. Had its own music and its own bathroom!!! The service and food were great. They made us feel very special.

Love Sfoglia, the food is great, service excellent and restaurant decoration is also very nice. Have been there several times, the last two times sat in a small table in the back room, was great for conversation. The House Antipasti is always a great choice, last time tried the pappardelle a la bolognese, was also great.

There's a reason Sfoglia is well known for its bread! It is simply outstanding. If you can only try one thing it must be the pappardelle which they are known for. The place has a very warm and friendly ambience and a somewhat rustic vibe. And did I mention the bread? If you like it you can get more by... More

Haven't had Bolognese like this since I was in Bologna Italy. The chicken was amazing as well. The bread was worth the calories.

Went here for a business dinner with friends when in town from LA; the food was superb. The brick chicken was truly amazing, as was the pasta. The wine, bread, everything; really superb. The only thing that was close to a bummer was the noise level; we were seated (even with a reservation), in what I would call the "lower... More

If you'r contemplating an evening in the area of the 92nd Street Y Sfoglia is a restaurant you should be aware of. Normally in a restaurant your concern is about the food, right? Here, the food is good, not great, but good, but I found the seating very uncomfortable and a distraction to the meal. I thought the chairs were... More

Sfoglia has really good Italian food. The surroundings are characterized by mismatched furniture and quirky decor. The servers are sophisticated, thoroughly modern and rather friendly. They handle large groups well and while the bill can be substantial, the food is excellent.

I make a point of dining at Sfoglia every time I travel to New York. Quite simply, one of the most delightful and rewarding restaurant experiences in the city, perfect for entertaining a colleague or encouraging a romance. Food, ambience, service -- all are five-star. I would kill to have this restaurant closer to home!

Description
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.
