Fresh pasta or pasta sheets in SD

  • 8

I'm looking for fresh pasta or pasta sheets in the Central SD area. I'm sure there are one or two places in Little Italy, any suggestions? I went to Mario Batalli's Osteria Mozza in LA on Saturday and had the BEST ravioli, only one on the plate but filled with fresh homemade ricotta and a poached egg. The egg oozed out into the sage butter and was absolutely fantastic. I can't wait to replicate, but I haven't quite worked my way up to making pasta at home. Sounds like I need a pasta maker for Christmas! Any ideas on fresh pasta?

  1. Assenti's pasta on India street in Little Italy.
    If you are in the PB area, Lotsa Pasta also will sell you fresh uncooked pasta.

    1. Whole Foods also carries fresh pasta and lasagna sheets.

      1. Assenti's is my pick in San Diego. They provide a lot of restaurants, and have been family-run for many years.

        1. Third that on Assenti's. They only take cash, so go prepared.

          1. Is that egg inside the ravioli or on top? If inside, I wonder how you get it there and cook it perfectly without breaking it. or if it's already poached and put in there..well same thing? I would not be brave enough to try but let me know how it turns out. Sounds wonderful!

              The poached egg is inside the nice big fluffy ravioli. It was great nesting on the fresh ricotta, floating on yummy sage brown butter.

                I've had the dish- not at the same place. It was beautiful. Not going to get that at Assenti. But I love Assenti.

                  I'm looking for the pasta sheets and the fresh ricotta, then I'll take it from there and make it at home. Look out Mario here I come!
