Cook fettuccine pasta to al dente according to directions listed on package. Drain cooked pasta, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water.

In a medium saucepan, combine 1/4 cup reserved pasta water, heavy cream, orange juice, and orange zest. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and stir in cooked pasta. Cook for about 1 minute until sauce coats pasta, then remove from heat and toss in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, diced bacon and toasted almonds. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Plate and garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and Romano cheese. Serve immediately.
