Cucina Basilico (San Diego)

When we arrived in San Diego on our short trip to southern California we immediately went to our old “living room” - Cucina Basilico. Classic Italian food made completely in-house with care. It was also great to see Francesca and Danilo again (and we are glad the restaurant survived the pandemic)
It was great as always - hopefully we will now have the chance to come down more often

As always you start with their warm, freshly baked rolls

Rustic salame and mortadella

Prosciutto Crudo

Polpette with their marinara sauce

Pork ossobuco with porcini risotto

Raviolo filled with spinach

Mushroom casarecce with pesto and sausage

Semifreddo with marsala raisin and berry reduction

Vanilla panna cotta

Tiramisu (still our gold standard)
