From My Menu

"Everything on SPQR's menu is perfect. You can't go wrong with any of the pastas but I can never pass up chicken liver at any restaurant and Matt's version definitely takes down every single one I have ever had."
Chef Mark Dommen reviews Burrata al fungi at SPQR
$$$$ | Italian
Pacific Heights
1 Review
"This is basically a savory mushroom bread pudding made with brioche, housemade burrata cheese, and lots of mushrooms. It's perfectly balanced!"

"Sweet, creamy, smokey sturgeon and TRUFFLES. Amen! I was secretly longing for two or three more orders but I had to behave."
Chef Adam Dulye reviews Smoked fettuccini w/ sea urchin at SPQR
$$$$ | Italian
Pacific Heights
2 Reviews
"Sit at the bar and let them tell you which of the pastas to try. Get at least two and if the gnudi or smoked fettuccini are on the menu, you're half way there."
Chef Gonzalo Guzman reviews Smoked linguini with clams and bacon at SPQR

"I love seafood—really anything that comes from the ocean—and I'm in love with this combination of seafood and pasta, since I love pasta as well."
