Vancouver Magazine announced their 2017 Restaurant Awards Winners earlier this week and a couple Kitsilano hot spots picked up awards.

In addition to the category awards which celebrate the hottest new rooms, the top chefs and most creative menus in the city, Vancouver Magazine celebrates the best of the Vancouver’s neighbourhoods as well.

The top award for the Westside was awarded to L’Ufficio, the sister eatery to Kitsilano’s La Quercia.

Located next door at 3687 West 4th Avenue and connecting by a door, L’Ufficio provides everything from multi course dinner service to wine and nibbles in a casual, unhurried environment.

Run by Adam Pegg and Lucais Symes, who started with La Quercia and then ventured into Yaletown with La Pentola at the Opus, L’Ufficio has become a neighbourhood favorite for many.

And the Vancouver Sun’s Mia Stainsby agrees, “Their passion is undiluted at L’Ufficio, unsurpassed for casual Italian food and feel. Have a glass of Italian wine with snacks or a more substantial dish from the specials board (like a delicious hanger steak with arugula salad I tried one evening)”.

Stainsby continues, “Sit at the bar, nibble on Italian cheeses or salumi or at a table and settle in. The dishes are simple and homey and don’t require cooking cooked dishes are from La Quercia”.

    L’Ufficio is great for an impromptu meal.

    Note that while Lucais Symes helped start La Quercia, he is no longer associated with either that nor L’Ufficio… nor La Pentola, for that matter. He now runs the also-wonderful Cinara.
