Carbo loading in San Jose

Hey, I am racing the San Jose triathlon this Sunday ( June 24th) and I need a good pasta place for my pre-race carbo loading dinner on saturday night. Any recommendations?

    1. 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. Hope you win!
