SF Weekly's Description

SPQR, the second venture from the people behind A16, started off as a rustic trattoria. Then Matthew Accarino took over the kitchen and has veered off in a completely different direction at this Fillmore restaurant. As fashion-forward as it is respectful of Italian traditions, Accarino roasts baby carrots in ash and turns whole pigs into crispy ears, rolled pork belly, and blood pudding. His pastas range from whole-wheat bigoli with duck and kale to nettle tagliatelle with pancetta and chicken livers. And his signature rabbit roulade with stone fruits and mustards is exquisite -- and not rustic at all.

    Take a gander at the wine list… Hey, more communion is better, right?

    Part ancient Rome, part unpretentious California, this popular, critically-acclaimed restaurant excels in creating casually authentic Italian food. Try the homemade pasta with carbonara.

    Get the brussel sprouts.

    SF Weekly’s Best Of 2011 Winner – Editorial Pick – BEST RESTAURANT REINVENTIONFocus stayed nominally Italian, but the rustic Roman cuisine gave way to some of the SF's most forward-thinking food...
