When you talk about classic Roman cuisine, it's impossible not to mention Pasta all'amatriciana. This dish, originating from Amatrice, has found a special place in the hearts of Romans, especially in the Centro Storico area. The key ingredients - guanciale (cured pork cheek), Pecorino Romano cheese, tomato, and a hint of chili - combine to create a dish that is both simple and profoundly flavorful.

Strolling through the cobbled streets of Centro Storico, you'll find an abundance of trattorias serving this iconic dish. Each has its own 'secret' touch, whether it's the cut of the guanciale or the specific cheese blend. But for me, there are three places that truly stand out for their Pasta all'amatriciana.
