La Quercia is a fine Italian restaurant located by UBC in the Point Grey area. This is a place where it is hard to find an opening and reservations is required. You are given 2 hours to your dining experience and your waiter will even clear your dessert away even when you have not finished! Guess that’s what it means to be named Best Casual Italian” as well as “Restaurant of the Year”.

The environment is intimate and tight. Fresh sheets are available daily and your dishes are always crafted with passion. Alla famiglia set menus for 7 and 10 courses are available for $50/$70. Rustic baguette with chew and a rich extra olive oil arrived at our tables.

Potato Gnocchi and Lucanica Sausage Ragu: Their gnocchi is soft, pillowy and creamy and the ragu sauce is complex. This is a heavy dish and perhaps would be best shared or reduce ordering another main.

Fresh Sheet of the day. A beautifully seared flaky fish with kidney white kidney beans, spring greens. A nice lighter side to complete our meal.

Semifreddo: Nougat & Orange Semifreddo. A beautiful and refreshing ice cold classic Italian dessert with orange zest, honey roasted hazelnuts nougat.

 

 

There is really I can fault this lovely place except that one should NEVER TAKE AWAY SOMEONE’S HALF EATEN DESSERT!  Our waiter is so kind isn’t he to look out for our diet?
