We found this place online. The menu was very well written. The execution was deplorable. Thin layer of Burratta was served on thick cut untoasted french bread. The Porcini and crimini mushroom ragout on the risotto was white mushrooms in brown gravy. The figs with gorgonzola had minimal cheese, and the prosciutto was heated with the figs, changing the texture and flavor of the meat. The strip steak was not a strip steak, and very tough, with most of it chewed and left on my plate. The service was very friendly and accommodating. The genius that wrote the menu was not there to oversee the kitchen/ or train them it seems.

Sweet servers, gracious owners, competent bussers, beautiful bartenders - what more could you want? Oh and yummy food! Could live off their tapas, salads, and sides... Only ever had one dessert. Budino peeked my interest because I had never heard of it before. Divine! The others? Dunno - Perhaps they taste more interesting than they sound? Delivery portions seem smaller but they package it nicely. Wish they would deliver their wine too...

Delivery is prompt. The arugula salad and baked eggplant parm are tasty.

I have been dining at La Follia since the day it opened and continue to dine there or order in once or twice a week. La Follia's food is excellent. The staff is very cheerful and attentive. Their portions are perfect--particularly for the cost. I have not been disappointed yet. If you are expecting traditional Neopolitan Little Italy/Brooklyn cuisine--go to Little Italy or stay in Brooklyn. La Follia's Italian cuisine is more refined and the ingredients are impeccably fresh. Bravissimo! I am thrilled to have you so nearby.

I've eaten here several times in the past and enjoyed it. However, this past Friday night, the food was completely oversalted and disappointing. I had the branzino (21.00) which was one tiny fillet that was so salty it was hard to eat. The broccoli rabe-same thing. Also, the soup special-salty, salty, salty. The proscuitto was delish, and the buratta app good too. I am hoping it was just a bad night in the kitchen, but if it happens again, this one will be off my list.

Unless you don't mind waiting, get there early--it was quiet when we got there and packed when we left two hours later. Based on my experience, it's not hard to see why. The menu tends more toward northern/rustic Italian than the Sicilian food in most Italian restaurants in the New York area, so it's a little different and a nice change. I had the grilled romaine salad and the cavatappi, which was like super-gourmet macaroni and cheese. Both were absolutely delicious. The tiramisu I had for dessert wasn't that different from what I've had at other Italian places, but it had a very nice, strong flavor. Service is friendly and knowledgeable without being intrusive, and the atmosphere is very relaxed with a touch of romance. If you're in the mood for Italian but also looking to try something different, La Follia is a win-win.

First, we received 6 very small slices of bread for 6 people. They were not sliced apart, and with difficulty we had to handle each others slice to get a piece...skimpy on oil, as well. My husband's spaghetti was $.35 of pasta with a chunky, tasteless tomato coating without cheese or meat for $13.00! The "special", was tasteless beef ribs that another of our party found inedible. The burgers with gorgonzola cheese was nearly absent of the cheese. We were charged a mandatory 20% gratuity on our bill, not 15 or 18%, without notice. Upon our request, they were unwilling to divide our bill, according to our orders, among the 3 parties present. We were told we needed to ask ahead of time. I believe that should have been the waitress's responsibility to inform and inquire of us. It was obvious, that we were 3 couples.
