Egg yolk, pecorino cheese, jowl bacon, pepper, and the favorite type of pasta you wish for yourself. Preparing a Carbonara is not a big deal, but making it tasty and unforgettable is totally another story. If you want to enjoy a real carbonara, you might then try a truly great restaurant called Osteria Dar Bruttone. Then we can talk again about pasta and the other Roman specialties. In this restaurant, you’ll find the most common recipes of the Roman kitchen, as well as new versions of traditional Roman dishes – for example, the Carbonara with artichokes or the Gricia with figs (according to the season).
In any case, as you will visit this restaurant I think you’ll remain totally satisfied with the quality of the food and also with the prices. If I may suggest something terrific to try, go for the Porchetta. They prepare it their own, and with those potatoes on the side and the gorgeous sauce on top, it’s something indescribably delicious.
As with many restaurants, it’s often busy, and last time I was there I could eat just because it was early. Forget any formality and leave your best dress for another day, as the atmosphere in this restaurant is totally chill.
The waiters are honest and direct, doing their best to serve all the tables they have, without letting no one wait, and that’s also something I like about a restaurant like this – less formality and more substance.
