Felice A Testaccio

Testaccio
Classic Roman

For a top example of the classic pasta sauces that make Rome so famous—like the creamy cacio e pepe option with sheep’s cheese and cracked black pepper that should figure on the top of any gourmand’s list—head to Da Felice in the city’s former meat packing neighborhood. Rather than chose one of the more mundane main courses, carbo load like crazy on fresh pastas, and save room for the decadent tiramisu, served up in a wine glass.
