Tagliolini Caccio e Pepe at Storico Fresco

Available at Storico Fresco Alimentari e Ristorante !
A major food website declared caccio e pepe as “the most overrated food obsession,” saying, “it’s just cheese and pepper, people.” Sure, the formula is simple, but in simplicity lies beauty. And Storico Fresco’s simple plate of tagliolini caccio e pepe is a thing of great beauty. What makes it so is neither the sharp and creamy coating of Pecorino Romano cheese, nor the plentiful sprinkling of Sarawak black pepper, but rather the simple perfection of the al dente strands of tagliolini. Let the joyful fork-twirling commence. $16.
