Excellent Italian Food

The food is very well-prepared Northern Italian cuisine. There are two dining settings: (1) Inside is intimate, subtley elegant, white-linen table clothes, and cozy; (2) Outside is a trellis-covered dining area with a fountain, and white-linen table clothes. The owner is Italian-born... read more

There are two dining settings: (1) Inside is intimate, subtley elegant, white-linen table clothes, and cozy; (2) Outside is a trellis-covered dining area with a fountain, and white-linen table clothes.

I and my staff decided to have lunch here on a Friday because the outside dining area is very nice and the weather was perfect. This is a true family restaurant. Leonardo and his sons were working. One son was our server and the other was cooking. I started with a house salad and my staff had the Tomato Bisque... More

Have dined at this restaurant multiple times and enjoy the food. I consider it the best food in Davis. The waitress gave us the specials for the day and we ordered. One of us ordered the veal chop foie gras that was not on the menu, but a special for the evening. There was no mention of price from the... More

I have eaten here twice. Once when I started this review in 2012 and more recently. The food is traditional and useful for gaining calories and stimulating the mouth. However, if I spend ~$100 for a meal I want inspiration and lingual fun. Not so much here. The food is fussy, the manager a bit aloof, and the whole place... More

After visiting Bologna, I've been looking for an authentic lasagne Bolognese and Fasulo has the most authentic one in the area. Much is the sad fact of many local restaurants who gouge the customer with ridiculous wine pricing, Fasulo is no exception, unfortunately ... you are far better off bringing your own and take the corkage hit.

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
