October 17th is National Pasta Day
Today is arguably one of the best obscure holidays of the year, National Pasta Day. San Diego has a very diverse dining scene that offers up many options when it comes to Italian food. From mom and pop stops to flashy new restaurants, it is safe to say us San Diegan’s are spoiled when it comes to options for National Pasta Day.
This day gives everyone a free pass on eating as much pasta as they wasn’t with absolutely no judgment at all. To help you indulge in the greatest day of the year, here are some of the best Italian restaurants in San Diego.
With a name like Divine Pastabilities, it’s almost certain that you can’t go wrong. With fettuccine alfredo, lasagna and pasta sandwiches, this Italian restaurant will meet all of your carb needs. The restaurant features unique plating and creative dish names which will fulfill your National Pasta Day requirements.
Bencotto Italian Kitchen is located in the fitting, Little Italy San Diego. With top reviews, this fine dining restaurant is ready to load you up with pasta, pasta and more pasta. The pasta is always made fresh and in-house (which is the best) and you are able to build your own pasta dish at Bencotto.
