Classic Rome, or Roman classics

We recently had lunch at a relatively new restaurant in San Francisco, Chiaroscuro (, where the menu featured three Roman classics: tagliolini cacio e pepe; tagliolini alla carbonara; and spaghetti alla chitarra all'amatriciana. Plus they had a "trilogoia", which was a tasting of all three of these delights, which I had. This was a beautiful presentation and a tasting delight. I was transported back to one of my favorite places: the Piazza della Rotunda.

You may prepare all of these classics yourself: go to, and on the home page there will be this article on Rome, and the recipe links. Enjoy!
