La Quercia follows in the tradition of Trattoria della Quercia, a popular trattoria that operated for years in the (grand oak) shadow of the Rococò church of Santa Maria della Quercia. The new place, which opened in 2009, tries hard to find a niche between the neighborhood’s forced-chic and an old-school trattoria. The hybrid leads to paper place settings and airline-style hand towels in customized foil, not exactly a Roman staple.
The food is workmanlike: strong antipasti, so-so pasta (con calamari was weak) and meat dishes including roast lamb and saltimbocca, neither outstanding but perfectly satisfactory. Past runs an average of €8, main courses about double that. The setting is lovely, ideal above all for outdoor dining in the presence of Rome’s core attractions of history and art.
