Antonello Serra moved to London in 1995 from the Il Faro restaurant in Sardinia, with its one Michelin Star for the high level of cuisine based on the reinterpretation of traditional dishes and seasonal products.

In the City, he worked at two prestigious venues: Metrogusto and Assaggi, also given one Star in the Michelin Guide.

2006 is known as the great leap.

On August 21, he opened his first restaurant “Le Querce” in Forest Hill, at number 66 Brockley Rise.

In the warm atmosphere of the restaurant, it is easy to indulge in good food at celebrations, events and moments of conviviality with family and friends. Perhaps the pleasure of taste is contained in the feelings it evokes, in an unmistakable emotion, created by a fellowship of experience and knowledge. Echoes and references to a known past, that feeds the senses and takes us on a journey from the infinite nuances.

Lovely authentic Sicilian restaurant. Relaxed, quiet & understated, the emphasis being on the important things the food and the service, both excellent.

Great food and atmosphere. A lovely family from Sardinia owns this restaurant and they are really friendly and accommodating. The chef is very creative resulting in a very interesting- and yummy- menu, with a modern take on traditional Italian dishes.would Definitely recommend 👌👌

Food was terrible. Bland. Dishes looked like they were conceived decades ago - rectangular potatoes with meat/fish plonked on top. I’d be surprised if the pasta is fresh, notwithstanding that sauce on it was plain and didn’t taste of much. So overpriced for what it was. Service was good and authentic Italian, shame the food wasn’t.
Do not understand the other ratings on here. Wouldn’t return.

Le Querce is a small restaurant very near Honor Oak Park station in Forest Hill South London. It is run by Sicilian people and their cuisine is authentic, fresh and tasty, with a variety of dishes from pizza and pasta to meat and fish, vegetarian dishes and a great collection of antipasti and desserts. Their ice creams and sorbet list is unusual and amazing. It isn’t too pricey and the service is friendly.

The food and wine is here consistently excellent. We have been coming here for many years, often for special occasions and family celebrations as well as the odd date night. The calves liver is always cooked perfectly, wines are very good. It's not the cheapest night out, but the quality of the ingredients and delightful, efficient service justifies the price. Never disappoints. The menu offers both classic Italian fare and imaginative regional dishes.
