Carbo loading in San Jose
That's a hard one, there are a lot of good Italian restaurants in SJ, and I do not very often dine out on pasta, it is too easy to prep nicely at home. I can recommend Il Fornaio, although a chain the food is always good at their downtown location here. Others that come to mind Paolo's, more fancy in the same dowtown area. In the out of town areas, I like Giorgio's, more for pizza but I expect that their pasta would be equally as good, that is at 1445 Foxworthy Av. www.giorgiossanjose.com. Hope you win!
