Casual Italian Restaurant on 4th at Alma in Kitsilano

Welcome to La Quercia

Our weekly hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, accepting reservations at La Quercia or walk-ins at l'Ufficio from 5pm until 10:30pm.

For larger groups, the restaurant can be booked for private events 7 days a week, for lunch or dinner. Please enquire.

Our annual Truffle Dinner will take place again this fall. Stay tuned for details.

La Quercia and l'Ufficio are closed for the week of July 3rd to July 10th. Every Remembrance day, as well as December 24th, 25th, 26th and 31st.


La Quercia provides a comprehensive, seasonally focused menu framed within the slow cooking tradition expressed in northern Italian cuisine. With the addition of a complete a la carte menu, Chef Adam Pegg features an impromptu 'small' or 'large' family style preparation made to involve the entire table in the collective dining experience.

Drawing from the deep roots of northern Italian cuisine, La Quercia reflects the culinary heritage of continental Europe, an honest reflection of the true to day offerings of the region.

Noteworthy accolades include Restaurant of the Year (2011), Best New Restaurant (2009) as well as repeated recognition for best casual Italian offering in the city. La Quercia and now L'Ufficio aspire to continuously take the dining experience back to the fundamentals of old world hospitality.

twitterReaching as far back as locally foraged mushrooms to family raised lamb and beef with an emphasis on whole animal butchery, you are treated to an honesty that shows through in the notable quality of what appears on the table, whatever it may be!
