Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Written by Katie Parla on May 3, 2010

I had a great meal at Al Pompiere in Piazza Cenci in Rome on Saturday. The place was packed for Primo Maggio and the wait for our food seemed interminable, but it was worth it. The spaghetti alla carbonara was excellent: the pasta was perfectly al dente, the guanciale was salty and cripsy, and the eggy condiment was pleasantly light (or so I convinced myself).
