Last night three of us feasted all of our senses at Osteria Fasulo. We sat outside under a gorgeous the grape arbor while a violinist played and lights twinkled. Service was perfect. Food was DELICIOUS: some sort of delectable (free) amuse bouche, then fresh Italian bread with pesto and olive oil and soup of puréed spinach, then smoked trout, then... More

Based on trip advisor ratings and my craving for oysters I picked this place for dinner during my short stay in Davis. The patio is very nice and it does have an Italian garden feel to it. I was a bit disappointed at first that oysters were not available , but the clams and mussels I had instead were very... More

Long time resident, visited here for the first time. Small inside but lot of outside seating in a pretty courtyard. One complaint is that since the kitchen/back of house is quite near the dining room we could hear every order called out and everything that was said back and forth to the kitchen. It was not very crowded in the... More

I have lived in this area for 20 years and never knew this little restaurant existed in Davis. We found this place through online reviews. The food is excellent, with homemade and fresh ingredients. We had the risotto and salmon. Both were delicious and well-prepared. My only critique is that the prices are on the high side - especially as... More

My daughter and I had a great meal here. We had a reservation and sat outside. Our server was helpful, attentive and pleasant. A complimentary melon ball wrapped in prosciutto was served to us. Nice. We had house salads and gnocchi - absolutely delicious. My daughter had squab for dinner. It was a little too underdone for her taste, but... More

Intimate atmosphere and as authentic Italian eating experience you can have in the states. We really enjoyed the antipasti and the pasta.

We went here for a dinner last night (Saturday Night) as we had a gift certificate. We had high hopes by all the great reviews. We had the scallops for appetizer - they were fishy, and very bland. The sauce had NO flavor. We had the gnocchi and it was tender and the pesto had good flavor - but nothing... More

Osteria Fasulo has a charming European café feeling. It's a bit hard to find in a residential section of Davis. This was our first visit. It is definitely the nicest restaurant in Davis! Although the outdoor dining looked inviting, we were there for an early dinner before a performance at the Mondavi Center so we ate inside. From the conversations... More

The food is DELICIOUS and generous. Best are the fish and pasta dishes. And the puréed soups. And, of course, the desserts! Love the waitstaff. We eat here often. Wish they would resume serving Sunday brunch -- it was such a treat in the lovely garden!

This is the best restaurants in Davis. Should you dress up... yes. But the outdoor area is elegant yet it is not fancy. They have a terrific wine list and amazing food. Their ciopinno is the single best dish I have ever had. We have often arrived at this restaurant at opening and closed it down. The food and wine... More
