Expert Recommendations

"For me, Lupa is the best Roman-style restaurant in New York City, from its antipasti verdura (I love the sweetness of the beets with pistachio) and the carne (the best prosciutto di parma; salty and sweet) to the pesce (sardines and golden raisins) and my favorite, the cacio and pepe, which has the perfect amount of pepper."
"I'm a firm believer that certain Italian sauces are only ever meant to be on dry pasta. Cacio e Pepe is one of them. This version at Lupa (made using Setaro bavette) is basically one of my favorite things in the world to eat. It's like the best macaroni and cheese you'll ever have, Roman-style."
