A midday flight gave me the perfect chance to visit San Diego's Little Italy. Bencotto was recommended to me and turned out to be a superb choice. The food was outstanding and the service was extremely gracious. My server explained that the black pasta with shrimp was a signature dish. The fresh pasta had a perfect texture and delicate taste. The shrimp were very fresh and highlighted by the cheese. This dish hit the perfect medium between comfort and excitement.
