Rome, Italy. The Birthplace of Fettuccine Alfredo.

Alfredo all Scrofa in Rome, Italy. I get hungry just typing those words. Pasta, butter, parmesan cheese…how can you go wrong? The story goes that in 1920, Alfredo wanted to make his pregnant wife happy by cooking her a meal. Alfredo came up with the invention of Fettuccini Alfredo, and from there it is history. I don’t want to spoil the thunder of the video interview I had with one of the owners on the invention of Fettuccini Alfredo. There is a lot of history in the story, and a lot of arguments of who was the real inventor of Fettuccini Alfredo is in Rome.


My take, I’m just happy it was invented! I’ll keep eating it while they decide who is the real inventor.

Walk around the restaurant for stunning street views.

Alfredo alla Scrofa was a marvelous restaurant. The food was beyond spectacular. It was the best Fettuccini Alfredo I have ever tasted. But, I also enjoyed their love of the history of their restaurant.

With one of the owners.

A walk around the walls of the restaurant and you’ll see a decadent amount of celebrities, young and old, that have visited the restaurant.

*When you visit, ask the story of the golden spoon and fork!
