The Best of San Francisco Dining Scene
With Rome-style cuisine and the atmosphere of a lively trattoria, a night at SPQR in the Pacific Heights neighborhood feels like a night in Rome. House-made semolina pastas, fresh vegetables, exotic cuts of meat, an all-Italian wine list, and plenty of Umbrian olive oil ensure that SPQR’s simple dishes are anything but ordinary. Executive Chef Nate Appleton, also of sister restaurant A16, serves the traditional ingredients and recipes that have made Rome an epicurean epicenter for thousands of years.

Review Title: Disappointed
We read that Bix was rated one of the top 10 restaurants in San Francisco so we made reservations for four on our first night in town. The ambiance and music were wonderful, our meals were average and the service was below average. All in all our dining experience at Bix was a disappointment.
