Cacio e Pepe


in Vatican City, Borgo & Prati

A local institution, this humble eatery is about as hardcore as it gets with its blackboard menu of Roman staples, spartan interior and no-frills service. Grab a table at one of the many pavement tables and dig into the namesake cacio e pepe (pasta with pecorino cheese and black pepper) followed by ever-welcome polpette (meat balls in a tomato sauce).
