Tried Uovo yesterday for a late lunch. Gotta say I was surprised! Very solid plate of pasta.
I got the tonnarelli amatriciana. The pasta was well made and cooked properly. It was finished in the sauce, which had the right amount of heat from red chili and porkiness that only guanciale can deliver.
I shall now pick nits:
- $20 all in for a plate of pasta is a touch high.
- I think they are over-saucing and doing the fine pasta a bit of a disservice. Pasta should be more than just texture. I fully accept I will be in minority here. I’m also dealing with a sample size n=1 so, yeah.
- The amatriciana is brought together with about a 1/2 cup of pecorino. It ends up creating a tomatoey cheese sauce. Sounds delicious, I know, but it’s not my idea of amatriciana. It was a gooey sauce, which is just weird for amatriciana.
All that said, fun place. I’ll be back as long as they don’t pull an 800 Degrees on us.
