Ferragosto at Bencotto Italian Kitchen

Dress in your summer best and head to Little Italy to celebrate “Feriae Augusti,” also known as Ferragosto—the national Italian holiday that traditionally is a time of honored rest after weeks of hard work in the agricultural sector. In San Diego, this means enjoying the bounty of summertime produce and fresh seasonal dishes at such restaurants as Barbusa, Civico 1845, Solunto and more. Our pick: Bencotto, for its daily cheese wheel selection in which fresh, hand-cut pasta is tossed in a 60-pound wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. 750 Fir St., Little Italy, 619.450.4786. lovebencotto.com | littleitalysd.com
