S.P.Q.R. on Ponsonby Road serves pizza and other Italian fare, but go for the fresh seafood. The scallops in New Zealand are always served with the roe on (and it's a tragedy that U.S. scallop-eaters have become accustomed to removing this delicious part). They were served in a lemony, tart red wine vinegar sauce. And a whitebait fritter was more like a simple frittata, the tiny fish sauteed in egg.
