Lovely- food great service well trained but a little slow
Best service! Very friendly and helpful staff. Atmosphere and decor excellent. Unfortunately was disappointed with the food. Had high expectations but the pasta dishes were just "okay". The veal was tasty but expected to get the food when it was hot, not room temperature.
One of our favorite restaurants - great as always!
Superb starters and main courses. Likewise for the Primitivo and the dessert.
This was our 4th visit to Sfoglina!
The food and service were great. The tables are too close together so the noise level is high.
Love the food and the nice vibe.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Great good, service, and ambiance! Truly a wonderful restaurant with fantastic fresh pasta (and chocolate hazelnut cake!).
Everything was wonderful but it was a little warm in the restaurant.
Great food and great service. Will definitely be back.
We love everything about Sfoglina!!
We always pass by Sfoglina downtown and always curious about it. Finally, we decided to try it for Valentine's Day but was not able to secure a reservation-of course (deciding last minute is ALWAYS a bad idea)! Since their downtown location isn't open for lunch on Saturdays,we went to the Van Ness location. It certainly did not disappoint! A well deserved Michelin award. The food is fantastic and the ambiance is simply amazing. The staff are also very attentive. Glad the downtown location is in our neighborhood.
Sfoglina Van Ness is such a well-kept secret. It's the perfect date night location, the vibe is certain to make you and your guest(s) feel appreciated and special. The atmosphere is warm and whisks you away from a cold night. The service was attentive and willing to make dish alterations/accommodations. The food was delicious and the chocolate cake was truly to die for (it was like a rich, fudgey chocolate cake and a Ferrero Rocher candy combined to be the most magnificent cake of all!) I will certainly be frequenting again!
The service and food were both absolutely amazing. Every encounter I had with the staff was nothing short of amazing. I have been trying to get a reservation here for a while now, and just my luck, they had an opening for Valentine's Day. Despite usually being always booked, seriously do not stop checking until you get a reservation! My boyfriend and I are always looking for great places to eat and this absolutely topped any place we have been to this day. We got burrata, prosciutto, and the octopus for the appetizers. For the main course I had the Squid Ink pasta with lobster, and he had the Spirulina Garganelli. Best. Pasta. Ever. You can always tell the difference between homemade pasta and store bought ones. This will be the best fresh pasta you will ever taste! Will continue to rave about this place until I can go again!
We enjoyed a wonderful and lovely Valentine's Day dinner. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. The pasta special with diced beet and goat cheese in a lemon poppyseed sauce was amazing and the Sardinian cavatelle was sublime. We love Sfoglina!
The restaurant is OK. The service was fine but our waiter did not seem that friendly. I could not understand him at times. The spot where we sat was too sunny and I could barely see. The food is good, but I think the Arlington location has friendlier service and better food.
Sfoglina use to be my go-to restaurant. When I took friends there three days ago, I couldn’t believe it was the same restaurant! The service was terrible and my lobster inedible. When I complained to both the waiter and the manager, they were indifferent. I shall not return.
Sfoglina is a DC gem. The food,service and dining experience are excellent.
Great food and the staff was very friendly and welcoming.
Excellent ambiance, outstanding food, very friendly staff.
This restaurant is consistently excellent in terms of service, food and ambiance. I always have a wonderful experience when I visit as do those who come with me.
A return visit for friendly atmosphere and terrific food plus serve. A rare terrific restaurant for the ‘hood.
Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere! Will definitely return.
The food was outstanding down the line. The texture of the pastas was incredible. Service was attentive, and advice was thoughtful and helpful. Wine prices were quite high, although the variety and depth of Italian choices were excellent.
They forgot to put a candle in our dessert.
Very good except that when we were present at the bill it was for $114 as opposed to the 427 that it should've been. We immediately told the server which then prompted lead to a 15 to 20 minute delay in the right bill being brought to us. Would've been nice if a drink or dessert would've been offered during this delay. It would also have been nice if someone had thanked us for making this mistake clear.
Took friends for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very receptive!
Very nice back room, with lots of fabric to keep down noise. Food different, delicious, interesting choices. Server very well informed.
service could’ve used some refining. we asked for salt and pepper and, no sooner had it been brought to the table, than it was taken again. we went through this scenario three times. the waitress was nice but... really... perhaps sfoglina could invest in a few more bottles of both.
The place was quiet Which may have been due to Super Bowl night. Nonetheless we sat on the heated covered porch which was delightful. The service was great and the food was great Albeit I sure wish the portions were about 30% more larger. Grilled squid was delicious as was the pasta Teléfono and the sword fish.
The service was not great during our meal. We were a large party and waited a while for drinks orders and food orders. One of our party did not get her meal when everyone else's was served and had to wait another 10 mins for it to arrive. That said, Sfoglina did make it up by giving us one of each dessert on the house. That was very nice of them!
One of the best experiences we have ever had at dinner in the DMV as well as some of the larger metropolitan markets like NY, SF, LA and Chicago. The staff could not have done a better job.
Everything from the hostess, to the server, to the sweetest busser, the phenomenal food, and the great ambiance, it was a wonderful dining experience
Amazing. Food, service, atmosphere — just fabulous.
Wonderful food and service
Chicken that was very good previously was dry. Brussel sprouts which were so very good on previous visits was again not the same. Not the very same taste. A bit disappointed in my visit.
Fabulous and unique food. Great service. We had lunch and it was not crowded. I suspect that a crowded dinner crowd could be very loud. It was worth the trip from Virginia. Not cheap (but I guess that a $100 bottle of wine contributed!)
Fabuloso as always! The best restaurant in town.
Love this spot! We just moved to cleveland park and I was worried there wasnt any good sit down Italian restaurants (pizza pizza everywhere). This place is great for dates, just friends, the food is delicious and authentic and the staff are super friendly and professional!
We were a party of 8 celebrating a great friend 64th Birthday. One of our party owns a fine wine store and we brought some special wine for the celebration expecting to pay a corkage fee as we have done in the past at Sfoglina. We gave the wine to the hostess and shortly the manager came over and told us they wouldn’t pour our wine as it was a Friday night. We were very disappointed. Our party would have opened 3 or 4 bottles but instead we only ordered one. It would have been better for the restaurants bottom line if the would have allowed us to drink the special wine we planned for this special occasion. We were disappointed as we love Sfoglina.
