Our bus group from Indiana had dinner at this restaurant recently. The food and service were fine but the way we were treated by the owner was appalling and very unprofessional. I feel sorry for her as she must be feeling a ton of stress...More

My spouse and I dined at SPQR for lunch in mid-December 2012. (SPQR stands for Senatus Populusque Romanus, which means the Senate and People of Rome.) Note that this restaurant is not associated with the 1-Michelin starred restaurant called SPQR in San Francisco. This property...More

This is a very nice restauranr. Good service and good food. However, for the prices that they charge the main courses are small. So you need to have dessert if you are still hungry after the main course. Desserts are also not cheap.

Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest
neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors
from around the globe, especially on summer weekends
when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up
Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a
dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables,
cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised
when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in

Here at 133 Mulberry Street, Ristorante S.P.Q.R. has been created in the heart of New York's Little Italy as a monument to Italian cuisine. Over two thousand years have passed since the time of Romulus. The initials S.P.Q.R. are still today, a monogram in Rome and can be seen throughout the beautiful acient city. The Arches, gateways to Rome, bear the inscription S.P.Q.R. and give a feeling of warmth and welcome to the traveler upon entering the city. It is with great pride that Ristorante S.P.Q.R.-Senatus Populus-Que Romanus uses this monogram. Just as the Senate and the poeple of Rome welcomed friends, travelers and countrymen, Ristorante S.P.Q.R. welcomes you to enjoy a truly fine dining experience.
