Pasta dish in Downtown San Diego

Hello,

We will be in San Diego this weekend. Could someone recommend good pasta place in the vicinity of Harry West Gymnasium (1450 Park Blvd). We have a car, so it does not need to be in a walking distance.

Thank you.

    Cucina Urbana (Bankers Hill - very close to Downtown) is probably your best bet, but make your reservation now as it's a hard one to get into on short notice. Plus all dishes are under $20...

    Bice (in downtown in the Gaslamp) has some excellent pasta dishes as well - the homemade buckwheat pasta with chard is amazing.

    Bencotto (in Little Italy - close to downtown) is also talked about, but I've never eaten there so cannot give judgement.

    But since you're on Park Blvd - where you really need to go is Pizzeria Bruno - very traditional pizza napoletana - I know, it's not pasta but it IS a revelation.

      Thank you. Could not get to Cucina Urbana or Bice. Will try Bencotto.
