From The TV Show: Cacio e Pepe in Rome

In the Rome episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy learns how to make the iconic pasta dish famous to Rome.

There’s a tiny restaurant in Trastevere that is one of the best places in Rome to eat Cacio e Pepe, one of the most famous dishes in the Eternal City. Brothers Francesco and Roberto di Felice taught Kathy how to make the dish with Pecorino Romano, tagliolini, pepper, water and a secret ingredient (shhhh – love). Da Enzo is a great place to try other Roman specialties too. Da Enzo is located at Via dei Vascellari, 29 and open daily, 12:30 to 3 p.m. and 7:30 to 11 p.m. It fills up, so make a reservation by calling 39 06 5812260. For more information, visit:
