Sfoglia dinner.. Disappointed

We were really excited to try Sfoglia, Lex and 92nd, but were left a bit disappointed last night..

For starters, we were sat in a communal table. We weren't too happy about that but the worst part was that they sat a family with a very loud child that kept dropping glasses and plates next to us.. (We rarely get to go out without our children, so this was our big adult night out .....)

I had the pappardelle bolognese, very tasty, yet not the best by any stretch.. Small portion for the entree size, maybe two more noodles than the app size...

He had the pappardelle as an app and the lamb cutlets.. The lamb was tasty but came with no accompaniments, luckily he ordered a side dish..

Most desserts had to be pre-ordered, which we didn't do, not knowing how full we'd be.. STill hungry, I ordered the semi-freddo, which was OK.. He got some chocolate flan-type thing with blood oranges named Moroni, or something.. the waiter didn't even know how to pronounce the name.. It was passable, but not at $12..
The meal was very expensive for what we had and the atmosphere didn't live up to the price tag.. There were babies being breastfed in the dining room and strollers blockign the entryway.
Won't be returning...
