Trip Report SPQR in San Francisco is still good!

Jump to last reply

We've been eating at this S. F. restaurant for years and have seen it through it's change from primarily a place serving Roman cuisine to its current iteration of serving slightly offbeat to downright weird interpretations of Italian food.

It had been about three years since our last visit and I had forgotten really how much I love this place. It is small and has a "neighborhood" flavor to it that makes it feel at once comfortable and puts one at ease. It feels good to walk through the front door and sit down.

The service is amazing, very attentive, pleasant and informative, but, while there is a mild sense of formality, it is strictly a function of the professionalism of the those that work there.

The food remains delicious. The pasta dishes are on smallish size, but the execution is amazing. We recently had lemon capellini with a guinea hen ragu and bucatini with Australian black truffles. Both were outstanding. Appetizers, secondi and desserts were equally satisfying. A stand out appetizer was the seared waygu beef in bonito brodo with turnips and "hen of the wood" mushrooms with a shaving of dried bonito on top. Our best dessert was the bombollini. Very good.

The prices have shot up in the past few years and it no longer feels like the bargain it used to which is sad. It still remains one of our stand-by favorites in San Francisco and worthy of a visit when in the city.
