With sharp and salty cheese balanced with the spicy kick of toasted black peppercorns, this classic Roman pasta is a signature item on the Maialino menu.
Maialino is a Roman-style trattoria inspired by the rustic cuisine of the Eternal City. This restaurant captures the warmth and comfort of a true neighborhood trattoria, reimagined for the concrete jungle. Its thoughtful Italian cuisine blends the rich cultures of both New York City and Rome. Sourced from its local family of farmers and suppliers, Maialino integrates quality, seasonal ingredients throughout the menu for a true Farm-to-Table experience.
