Cacio e Pepe

182 Second Ave. New York, NY 10003 | East Village | 212-505-5931

Location 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.
