Fodor's Expert Review SPQR

$$$ Pacific Heights Italian Fodor's Choice

Open since 2007, Fillmore Street's modern Italian favorite continues to be a special destination for chef Matthew Accarrino's inventive seasonal cooking. You'll find tempting antipasti, superlative pastas like mustard capellini with guinea hen ragù, and a few hearty secondi; be sure to save stomach space for the fantastic desserts. The Italian wine list is also full of gems and divided by region, providing a great educational lesson with your bottle. The polished yet relaxed atmosphere, with travel posters on the wall, attracts a dedicated neighborhood following of all ages. Singles and walk-in couples can sit at the two counters (one looks into the galley kitchen). Accarrino's fried chicken on Sundays is worth planning your day around. And doughnuts and coffee are served during the daytime for Fillmore's steady stream of weekend power shoppers and walkers.
