Broken Contract

I believe there is an unspoken contract between waiter and patron. The simple rule is that a waiter should be bound to direct the dinner to to order the appropriate amount of food. At a recent trip to Sfoglia, the waiter totally took advantage of an unexpecting group of hungry dinners. He totally directed us to over-order - 4 antipasti, 4 pastas and 4 secondis, 3 side dishes THEN 2 of the largest desserts i have ever seen ($18 each!!). A dinner for four came to $400 (tip tax and no wine). The food is not terribly expensive, but we were clearly encouraged to overorder. We all felt exploited upon departure. The food is delightful but not extraordinary.

Most people think this is the best Italian because critics say it is... I found it to be quite bland and service to be slow... The food was not memorable nor cheap... If you want really good Italian on the upper east side my choice and also (Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin) choice is Spigolo..

Went with my husband and 3 year old daughter and had a mind-blowing meal. It was so hard to decide what to eat as the whole menu is enticing. The food was incredible and such great value for money. The dishes were some of the best Italian food I have ever had. Service was superb. Can't wait to go back. Heartily recommended.

I'm not a huge fan of italian food but this place was amaaaazing. for my post-college budget it was a splurge but totally worth it. the wine was delicious, the waiters were lovely...a great night. A head's up, though, most people were a good 20+ yrs older than my friends and i.
