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