Day Two: Roma Alfredo’s

Posted on Saturday, October 15th, 2005

Dave!There was really only one choice for dinner... Alfredo alla Scrofa. This is one of two restaurants in Rome claiming to be the inventor of Fettucini Alfredo, which is my favorite pasta dish. But this is the real Fettucini Alfredo, which is quite a bit different than the grotesque imitation you'll find at a typical "Italian" restaurant in the US.

REAL Fettucuni Alfredo has very thin noodles... almost noodle shavings instead of the thick, gummy crap typical of Americanized pasta. REAL Fettucini Alfredo is thick with a deliciously aged, sharp parmesan cheese instead of the flavorless, watery cream that plagues Americanized Alfredo sauce. REAL Fettucini Alfredo is so good that it's practically worth a trip to Rome just to taste it...

Alfredo

REAL Fettucini Alfredo is impossible to describe with mere words... but "orgasmic" comes to mind...

    If you have it again, please take a picture to post. There’s a local Italian restaurant whose Fettucine Alfredo sounds close your description; I’d like to see if it looks like it might be the real thing.

    What? No picture of the REAL Fettucini Alfredo?

    I didn’t have my camera because it was dark. If I make it back, I’ll take a photo next time.

    ….you couldn’t have described it better than that!
