Best Casual Italian 2013

May 1, 2013


GOLD: LA QUERCIA

Silver: Lupo | Bronze: La Buca | Honourable Mentions: La Pentolla della Quercia, Campagnolo

La Quercia (Gold) nails excellence in all areas-food, service, wine selection-in a space too small to hide any gaffes.

Lupo (Silver), un-hipsterish in its devotion to a rebooted version of the 1990 original, delivers a knockout wine list and consistent menu standards in a sweet setting.

La Buca (Bronze) gives impressive value with pared-down classics; the chef's five-course menu, at $60, is a deal not to pass up.

Honourable Mentions La Pentola della Quercia and Campagnolo share perfect pacing and a relaxed experience that belies serious cooking.
