    Bica has some of the best gnocchi I’ve had in San Diego, along with their cheese selection – it’s rare I get in the mood for a meal of carbs, carbs, and more carbs, but when I do, Bice is always on my mind.

    I’m glad the Padres won! I’ve only seen them win ONCE at Petco (granted, we only go once or twice a year).

      Their pasta is really fresh and everything was really tasty there! Even that cheese spread they gave us was so good.

      Funny, I’ve only seen the Padres win like 2 or 3 times… haha. Most of time they lose when we go. Hopefully they’ll win for our last game next week!

  2. Bice has such a great happy hour. I really liked their carpaccio when I went, I think it was served on a block of Himalayan salt. The prosciutto platter and the pasta look amazing too!

    And lol at the uniform thing, haha.

      Oooo, I didn’t know they served stuff on fancy salt blocks! I wish I had known that, totally would have tried that out as well. Jake is a nerd 🙂

    I’ve read some nice things about this restaurant. I love prosciutto di parma – that appetizer dish looks like shaved ham for some reason. Is that cheese, olive oil, and balsamic complimentary with the bread? I usually avoid gaslamp on baseball days b/c of parking so it’s awesome you found something affordable. I LOVE Petco park but just go to wander the stadium and smell foods.

      The cheese/olive oil/balsamic is complimentary! They just thrust it upon on us and I was like “hell yeah!” Awesome little appetizer for starting a meal. I was pretty thrilled to find $1/hr parking Downtown. Heck, even the meters are $1.25/hr so it’s a great deal.

  4. Yay you got to visit as well! It’s nice that ya’ll tried different items than we did so that means I have more options for our next visit! Let’s go for their happy hour one of these days! Too bad downtown isn’t as close to work. Yay for the padres win!

  5. I just read about some fancy restaurant in Boston that used nettles for pesto. Interesting how nettles is used here as well.

    I love pappardelle noodles – they are so filling and look so lovely. This mint version looks so good!.

      Nettles is new for me! I feel like I’ve had it one other time but it’s a hazy memories. I keep thinking nettles is “needles” like pine needles or something. Freshly made pasta is the best!
