Over time Sfoglia has become one of my favorite restaurants! Their bolognese sauce is delicious and I am always satisfied after my meal.

I occasionally will stop into Sfoglia and will always order the bolognese. It is amazing, yet proficiently expensive.

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.
