The Real Cacio e Pepe in Rome. Where to eat it?
“The cheese and pepper are like the Colosseum”
rsays a saying of Rome: the culinary tradition of the Eternal City has, in fact, dishes that are real institutions. Alongside the carbonara, gricia and amatriciana, a place of honor goes to the cheese and pepper, creamy and tasty.
Today on the blog of 4L Collection Hotels we bring you to the 3 best places to eat cheese and pepper in Rome.
CACIO AND PEPE DI FELICE A TESTACCIO
When we talk about cheese and pepper in Rome it is impossible not to mention Felice a Testaccio, who owes to this dish his incredible fame since its opening in 1936. Here the pasta is creamed by the waiter waiter directly at the table, to make the meal a real experience. The waiting list is very long: our advice is to book at least two weeks in advance.
LA CACIO AND PEPE DI DANILO ALL’ESQUILINO
The experience of cheese and pepper in Rome continues from Danilo all'Esquilino: here the tonnarelli are served in a huge wheel of pecorino- beautiful to see and good to eat, don’t you think? We are in Via Petrarca, 13 - 5 kilometers from our Hotel degli Aranci.
LA CACIO AND PEPE DI CESARE AL CASALETTO
We are outside the center of Rome, but it is here that we find one of the best keepers of the culinary tradition of the city: we are talking about Cesare al Casaletto with a cheese and pepper to try, with tuna strictly handmade. We are right in Via del Casaletto number 45, in a wonderful corner of authentic Roman.
LA CACIO AND PEPE DI TANTO PE MAGNA’
We conclude our gastronomic tour in the Garbatella area: here the cheese and pepper are abundant, the daughter of a tradition that only a family-run trattoria can give. We are in Via Giustino De Jacobis number 9, in the heart of the neighborhood, perfect for a walk after dinner to discover the true Roman.
