A16’s sister restaurant, SPQR, opened in September 2007 and serves—as you might guess from its name, which refers to the seat of government in ancient Rome—Roman food. The narrow, no-reservations place offers Chef Nate Appleman creations like lemony sweetbreads with celery and garlic as well as outstanding pastas. The list of affordable and hard-to-find Italian wines was assembled by A16's co-owner and sommelier, Shelley Lindgren.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This intimate spot is the latest venture from the team behind the popular <a href="/restaurants/a16-san-francisco"><strong>A16</strong></a>. Chef Nate Appleman focuses on the food of Rome, producing extraordinary house-made pastas, as well as 25 different appetizers categorized as cold, hot and, everyone’s favorite, fried.

We loved: Tuna with arugula, almonds and olives; (spaghetti with pecorino and black pepper).
