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
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.
The pasta with romano and black peppercorn is the single greatest pasta dish I have ever had.
American Express only!
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 :)
