Rome offers a few classic pastas. To begin, try a spicy "bucatini all’amatriciana" made of tomato and chili pepper sauce, bacon, and a famous Italian cheese called pecorino romano. Another typical Roman pasta is "spaghetti alla carbonara" which is made of a creamy sauce with raw egg yolks, bacon, pecorino romano, and black pepper. Another simple, but likewise yummy Roman pasta to try during your visit is "cacio e pepe". The name literally means noodles with cheese and pepper, and indeed the dish is just that though tastier than you might imagine.
