Radish, sichmi togarashi. $15
Barzotto, San Francisco CA
Mmm, this pasta was really tasty. I liked that there wasn’t a lot of different toppings so you could really enjoy the flavors. The braised hen was very tender and the pasta was cooked perfectly.
Braised duck legs, San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, whole wheat radiatore pasta, smoked parmesan, pepperoni bread crumbs. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD
I thought that this was a very successful dish. I loved the combination of the duck, whole wheat pasta, smoked cheese, and breadcrumbs. It was a hearty pasta dish, but the flavors were great and you can’t get it anywhere else!
Penne pasta with tomato, oil, garlic, chili pepper. €10
La Biga, Rome ITALY
This tasted fine, but I still couldn’t get over the yellow light! It just made all the food look SO unappetizing! Our server was really nice and friendly though and the experience was great overall (minus the light, lol).
Dried herbs. “Tradition” tasting menu €65
Tordomatto, Rome ITALY
There was just a single swirl of this spaghetti on the plate, but it was a satisfying one! The noodles were more al dente that I’m used to but it worked to hold up to the intense flavor of the sauce and the fine dried herbs on top. It was spaghetti like I’ve never tasted before!
Silverware place setting.
Homemade tagliatelle pasta in a bolognese sauce. €12
La Biga, Rome ITALY
This tasted fine, but that yellow light made all the food look sickly! But I guess why look at your food, when you can look out and enjoy the amazing view of the Colosseum in front of you!
Baked lasagne with minced beef, mozzarella, tomato sauce, parmesan cheese. €11
Napoletano’s Pantheon, Rome ITALY
Just like mama used to make! Ok, my mom never made me lasagna growing up, but if she did I would hope that it tasted like this one! This tasted great – it was hot, gooey from the cheese and the meat sauce was delicious. A total winner!
With eggplant, Puglia ricotta, mozzarella, and tomato. €10
Caffe Degli Specchi, Genoa ITALY
Mmm, I loved this lasagna! It was SO cheesy-gooey and the sauce was delicious! I could’ve eaten an entire pan of this. NOMS!
