  1. I don't know where you are in California but if you are close to San Diego the best fresh pasta is available at Russo's Pasta in Encinitas:

    Russo's Pasta Shop
    270 N. El Camino Real, #1
    Encinitas, CA 92024
    Joe Russo

    I think they opened now also a restaurant in Hillcrest where the Talus Cafe was before.

    1. The best fresh pasta in San Diego is at Assenti's Pasta in Little Italy. It is run by a pair of brothers, and they supply many of the finer restaurants in San Diego. They also make fabulous homemade sauces, biscotti, caponatina, meatballs, and sausage.

      Assenti's Pasta
      2044 India Street
      San Diego, CA 92101
      (619) 239-5117

        Their gorgonzola cream sauce is to die for. The last time I made pasta with it, I deliberately left sauce in the pot (and my poor bf's pasta probably suffered because of that) just so I could lick it up with the serving spoon.
