Osteria La Quercia

Osteria La Quercia Review

The beautiful Piazza della Quercia was once devoid of any restaurants, until this casual trattoria opened its doors. Now diners can sit under the gorgeous looming oak tree that lends the square its name. Its menu is simple—the usual suspects include fried starters like stuffed zucchini flowers and baccalà, as well as Roman pasta dishes like spaghetti carbonara and amatriciana. Main dishes include saltimbocca alla romana (veal wrapped with prosciutto and sage) and meatballs in tomato sauce. The ubiquitous Roman sautéed cicoria (chicory) with olive oil and chili pepper is a good choice for a green side. Service is friendly and allows for lingering on balmy Roman afternoons and evenings—so close, and yet so seemingly far from the chaos of nearby Campo de'Fiori.
