The original restaurant is "Il Vero Alfredo" on piazza Augusto Imperatore, 30. Here's the link: http://www.alfredo-roma.it/index-eng.htm

The funny part is that this dish is known in Italy as "pasta al burro", and it's considered something you'd eat when down with flu. This guy - Alfredo - took that dish, added a few other ingredients and splattered its name on it ("pasta Alfredo"); the result became wildly popular with Americans but is unknown to Italians.

HISTORY OF ALFREDO DI LELIO CREATOR IN 1908 OF “FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO”, NOW SERVED BY HIS NEPHEW INES DI LELIO, AT THE RESTAURANT “IL VERO ALFREDO” – “ALFREDO DI ROMA” IN ROME, PIAZZA AUGUSTO IMPERATORE 30

With reference of your article I have the pleasure to tell you the history of my grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).

Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina.

In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.

In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 "Il Vero Alfredo" (“Alfredo di Roma”), whose fame in the world has been strengthened by his nephew Alfredo and that now managed by his nephew Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).

See also the website of “Il Vero Alfredo”.

I must clarify that other restaurants "Alfredo" in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of "Il Vero Alfredo – Alfredo di Roma" in Rome.

I inform you that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo –Alfredo di Roma” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.

Best regards Ines Di Lelio

Dear Ms. De Lelio,

I would like to say many thanks and that for sure I will visit your restaurant during my next visit to Rome, from April 4 to 7.

My wife and me became fans of the "Alfredo" stile and we are eager to dinner at " Il Vero Alfredo".

Hope to see you there.
