Pasta alla Carbonara, one of the most famous Italian dishes all around the world. Dating back to the 20th Century, The Roman Gods blessed us with a creamy, rich and satisficing recipe - the catch? NO CREAM!

Egg yolks, pecorino romano & pasta water emulsified creates the perfect sauce. Choose Guanciale or Pancetta to replicate the traditional flavors.
