Sal Anthony's S.P.Q.R. Restaurant Review

: Senatus populus que Romanus roughly translated means the Senate and the people of Rome. Any restaurant aiming to identify itself with a legendary empire must aspire to be equally enduring. This member of the Sal Anthony family restaurants has been serving fine Italian cuisine in Little Italy for years. In the high-ceilinged, white-columned room, ease into comfy leather chairs and enjoy the many pastas, the chicken with olive oil and garlic or the traditional Italian veal and beef dishes. Tiramisu, cannoli and a black-and-white chocolate mousse cake are among the featured desserts.
