[Lower Pacific Heights] Italian Dinner at SPQR

  • Nov 14, 2013 · 7:30 PM

I've heard many rave reviews about SPQR from fellow SF Foodies and was intrigued when I saw the restaurant featured on Bay Area Check Please.

Figured it was about time I give this place try. Have a reservation for 4 to partake of the fine Italian food that SPQR has to offer. Grazie and buona tavola!

From the SPQR website:

SPQR is a Northern California restaurant inspired by Italian cuisine and wine.

An acronym for Senatus Populesque Romanus, SPQR translates to “The People and Senate of Rome” and was the emblem of the Roman Empire.

A proud recipient of a Michelin star for 2013, we strive for balance in offering the highest quality of food, wine and service for each guest’s experience in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

    I went to SPQR last night by myself since i was hungry. Posted the tasting menu here for your reference. (Actually it is a prank Sankar, Chris and I talked about posting pics on other people's events :P. Not sure if you guys still remember.... hehe)
    I had the burrata which was really good. the meyer lemon pasta with abalone. Abalone was good but not enough lemon flavor for my taste. The pear budino and gelato for dessert, which was just OK.

      Family style sounds good. If we order ala carte, we can create our own custom family style tasting menu. :-)
