L'Ufficio Restaurant Review

: Regulars of next-door sibling La Quercia Italian restaurant cheered when the doors to this postage stamp-size enoteca opened. L’Ufficio, which means “office” in Italian, was originally meant to be just that. Chef/owners Adam Pegg and Lucais Syme squeezed in a couple of shelves for office paraphernalia before the space morphed into a 20-seat wine bar. The wine list is all-Italian except for three fine French Champagnes. A dozen wines are available by the glass and all are first-rate accompaniments to antipasti, Italian cheese and charcuterie selections, along with a chalkboard offering daily starters such as fried zucchini blossoms, a double-baked Parmesan soufflé, and culatello di Zibello (a special ham from Emilia-Romagna). Mains may include ruby trout, tagliatelle monzo and Florentine steak. A chefs’ three-course menu ($37) is available and may offer prosciutto and melon; linguine with tuna, capers and Tropea red onion; and lamb shank. Finish with a selection of Italian cheeses plated with dried fruit and honeycomb. Service is low key, confident and friendly.
