Village Voice's Description

This comfortable Roman trattoria excels at its namesake, cacio e pepe, square homemade spaghetti turned inside a wheel of pecorino cheese, further enhanced with a liberal toss of crushed black peppercorns, a seasoning beloved of Romans since 500 A.D. Other Roman delights include saltimbocca (a sautee of prosciutto and monkfish fillet "married" with a toothpick) and coda alla vaccinara (oxtails braised with tomatoes and celery). Special pastas are often the best choice, so pay attention when your server recites them.

Tips from foursquare

  • Melissa K. on 05/21/10

    The namesake dish is presented in a HUGE Parmesan wheel, tossed around hot so that it soaks up the cheese, and is then put on your plate. So good.

  • Josh N. on 04/15/10

    The pasta with romano and black peppercorn is the single greatest pasta dish I have ever had.

  • Tim M. on 01/08/11

    American Express only!

  • Meg O. on 03/07/11

    The meatballs are incredible. Someone should order the buccatini all'ametriciana. Apart from the cacio e pepe dish, it is the best thing on the menu. In the summer, eat in the back garden!

    Ridiculously delicious neighborhood Italian. The restaurant named dish is a must :)
