Carbonara etc.

Jessica Nemeroff Ritz | May 2, 2000 08:03 PM

I just got back last night from a jump over to Italy (and boy am feeling the pain of jet lag right now) where I savored dishes such as rigatoni alla carbonara in a funky Roman osteria. Where can I find a simple well-executed version (as well as bucatini all' amatriciana) here that's not messed up with extra junk like peas, carrots, cream etc? We ate many a wonderful meal at great prices (the dollar rocks now!) and what a relief to have food first and not the scene. The best sandwiches I've ever had still cost 4,000 lire, same as they did 5 years ago. But enough of this non-LA tangent.

Seeing the board today was a nice surprise--after not checking during vacation I was so pleased to see all the new activity! So, no one has any response to my Russian question???
