Go Here! Eat This!

A simple food blog to help the overwhelmed foodie in a crazy big food world

When in Rome…

Last year, when we were in Rome, after eating Cacio e Pepe, I posted the below photos on my Facebook page and came up with the idea for this blog. So, I thought it was appropriate that this be my first post! Enjoy!

My husband is from Italy and we have been blessed to be able to visit frequently. His folks live just outside of Rome, so needless to say, next to NYC, we have this place pretty well staked out. What we have learned is to NOT, I repeat DO NOT eat in Piazza Navona. The food is expensive and usually not made fresh. However, if you travel just a few blocks outside of Navona or the Pantheon you can get a great dish. One of my FAVORITE is a very simple pasta dish called Cacio e Pepe. It is creamy cacio cheese with pepper tossed in pasta. We found a nice little place outside a few years ago and we go back every time. It’s in a tiny little Piazza called Sant’Eustachio (oostakeeo) and the place is called Vernissage. The Cacio e Pepe is served in a bowl of baked cheese and is to die for.  The Carbonara and Amatriciana are also very good and when you are there are classic Roman dishes that you can’t beat…but take my advice, when in Rome…Go here! Eat This!

    • Thanks! Good news is there is a great place in NYC that has this dish and it’s a pretty close second! I’m hoping to go back and capture a few photos for a follow up post!
