The Roman pasta dish (“cheese and pepper” in Italian) features on menus all over the city. And it’s not just old-school trattorias serving it up. Instead, versions of the dish – some traditional, others less faithful – can be found at some of the trendiest tables in town.
With only three, sometimes four ingredients, it’s a dish that inspires reverence when done right. It seems straightforward, but it's easy to mess up. This guide showcases the best of the best.
