Tonnarelli a Cacio e Pepe ( pasta with cheese and pepper) is to Rome, like pizza is to Naples, as a Prosecco is to Venice and as flat bread is to Romagna. So, coming to Rome without tasting a plate of this speciality is a crime! It's as if you came to Rome and never saw St.Peter's Square or tossed a coin in the Trevi Fountain.
We know that everyone, Romans, and those who come to study or for work, have their own special places for this dish. We at Gli Artisti can recommend 3 places, but we would love it if you would share with us your favorite place and maybe we could create a map of the best Tonnarelli in the city of Rome. What do you say, let's start!
