Tagliolini with True Clams

See the RecipeRoger Sherman

(Tagliolini alle Vongole Veraci) Riviera, a trattoria facing the Giudecca Canal, served us this simple dish made with true clams, or vongole veraci (Tapes decussatus). The Venetian lagoon is also full of Asian clams (Tapes philippinarum—manila clams), and these may be substituted.
