Russo's Pasta in Encinitas
I just want to mention a small shop in Encinitas which makes nice homemade pasta and sauces. Russo's Pasta in in one of the shopping malls along N.Camino Real. It has just 4-5 tables and sells only a few things beside their own pasta and sauces but both of them are worth the visit. Excellent quality. We had fresh pasta with pesto sauce and sauce Alfredo. Both tasted very good and the pasta had a excellent quality. Nice shop for a simple but very good lunch.
I second the recommendation for Russo's. A friend told me about their lasagna, and I've now served it a couple of times for informal gatherings of friends, kids and family, and everyone loves it. They make spinach and meat lasagna, and both are reasonably priced. They make great garlic bread, too!
