What Insiders Are Saying
An ambitious restaurant, and a good one at that. SPQR is making a run at the San Francisco pasta crown, mostly with ingredients we can't pronounce.
Might be the best Italian dinner we’ve had in awhile! Great atmosphere and service was outstanding.
If you like foie gras, SPQR Is the place to have it. Delicioso! Excellent food, wine and vibes. Friendly, down to earth staff. Always a fun experience here. Grazie.
Our fourth visit. It never disappoints and always leaves us wanting more and looking forward to our next visit. The ambience is so welcoming, the service is a high level of hospitality with great knowledge. And the food is just to die for. No liquor here. Just beer and wine. But you won’t care.
Fantastic service and food. Allow the sommelier to choose a wine -- you won't be disappointed and will most certainly experience something special. We had a wine from the tiny Italian DOC of Molise that was out of this world. Would have never thought to order it myself.
Always welcoming and delicious.
David, at the wine bar, a kind, humorous and, above all knowledgeable, wine savant eloquently describes the wines he serves and perfectly pairs them with each course.
Wonderful service but pasta dish (rigatoni) was extremely salty. Unfortunately won't be a regular here.
Seated 20 min after reservation time( they charge a customer $25 if a customer changes but what about when they do?).
Hair in salad, was replaced but not mentioned.
Seating is extremely cramped . We had booked chefs table but could only get a table after 20 min wait.
Food was overly salty and not very remarkable. Not sure how this place has a Michelin Star. None of the other tables near us were happy with their food. Not worth eating here
Food was overly complicated for Italian and wines by the glass poor and ridiculously overpriced
Awesome food, terrific entertainment if you sit at the chefs bar.
Insanely bad everything
Was great, but
Amazing restaurant. The Chef's Counter is the best experience!
Awesome white truffles on risotto
Expected more welcome .
The very best Italian food. The tasting menu
was delicious and the white truffles are highly recommended. The service was very friendly and professional. Will be coming back.
We looked forward to having a wonderful meal. In the end, we were very disappointed with the "Italian" pasta's. Guess we are just OLD school. And for the price, very expensive. We shared an antipasto, we each had a Primi dish, with a glass of wine, and my husband had the sea bass. I will say the serving sizes where good, just not the flavors we had expected. Total cost for the 2 of us without tip was $180.00...
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Buffalo Milk Ricotta and Basil
Zucchero pasta with beef Ragu
Great wines by the glass
Went here for an anniversary. Everything was super good! It wasnt a pretentious place neither.
The bistecca is highly recommended and the chicken liver mousse as well. Unfortunately, the night I went, they ran out of the bufalla ricotta, but all was still good.
The waiter forgot the items we ordered. The food is good!
AppetiZers were really good
No disappointments here. Especially enjoyed how relatively quiet it was. Food, great. Service, great. Well worth the price.
Food was mediocre at best --- and prices are very high for what you get. Definitely overrated. Would not recommend.
The food was fine, not great: octopus wasn’t grilled great and the sea food in the squid ink pasta just average and not very tasteful. The mushroom with wagyu beef and bread pudding was very good. Overall it’s not the greatest place to sit, they try to squeeze in just too many people on both the tables and bar to have zero privacy and simply don’t have enough space to properly sit. All in all fine but doesn’t live up to the hype.
Delicious food and wine for a special occasion!
Everything was great except for one--- the hanger steak. My husband said that the potatoes were undercooked and the steak was mediocre. The pasta dishes, fettuccine uni and bucatini were our favorites. Would go back again to try another pasta dish.
It took 45 mins to get our third course. By the time we got the food we were not even hungry anymore.
We had the pasta tasting menu, and while most of the courses were great, some were better than others. The wine pairings were a little on the light side; I'd advise just getting a good bottle instead. Service was fantastic, as always.
The seating is a little tight but the food and service are excellent. I felt like i could pay a lot more for similar food elsewhere so the value was great as well
David was an excellent server and very knowledgeable about the wines and pairings. The beet Bologna’s dish was SO divine - I don’t normally like beets or beet flavored things, but I still like giving it a chance, and man, am I glad that I did. It was out of this world, and even though I was full, I forced myself to finish it because I don’t think I will have another exceptional beets dish like that. Would definitely go again. Ambiance was quiet but pleasant.
Great experience and food! My only complaint is that we were so close to the table next to us, it was as if we were sitting at a table for four rather than two tables of 2.
Very mediocre meal for the price. Rather bland food.
Had lost its luster. Food was good but the flavors all seemed to be a bit flat.
Chef Matthew Accarrino is an outstanding chef! His dishes are delicious, inventive and truly fantastic. Thank you Chef Matthew!
This place has amazing food and our waiter was fantastic. We sat at the bar and had such a great overall experience. I want to go back and try everything else on the menu.
Consistently excellent. Helpful servers. Spectacular choices. Chicken liver mousse and octopus, kale sprout appetizers plus squid ink spaghetti with octopus and mussels following, not to be missed.
Another AMAZING dinner at SPQR! Took very good friends here--enjoyed every bite, every course, every glass of wine, every last spoonful of homemade graham cracker gelato. Fall menu is absolutely lovely and so well thought out. Hands down--favorite restaurant in SF!
Pasta. That's the only word you need to know at SPQR. The best pasta in SF, full stop.
My ratings are based on the fact that the management went above and beyond in addressing the lack of flavor in our starters.
This is a very popular spot. We are lucky to have it in the hood. Luckier still that the management and presumably chef, really care.
Because of their concern, I will visit again.
Wonderful flavors, exquisite wine and selection, attentive service, but alas, left unsatiated from the minuscule portions. Be prepared to find a dinner 2.0 spot after this :-)
