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

The minute you enter, you know you're on to something really special! Osteria Fasulo has that "wow factor" that is so often hard to find these days - especially when it comes to European-style Italian dining. This is a place where you come to truly enjoy the experience. From the beautiful patio garden with twinkling lights and the cozy dining... More

Arrived there around 1:00 pm on Tuesday, knowing it was late for lunch (lunch closed at 1:30) we ordered dishes that did not need to cook for a long time. We had Risotto alla Seppia, (black ink risotto with fresh seafood), Trio of fresh fish (trout) and II pollame (Grilled chicken scaloppini served with seasonal vegetables). We had some good... More

Our family had a delicious dinner outside on a beautiful evening here. Their is a fairly extensive menu, and the food is very well prepared. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our special evening at Osteria Fasulo.

Don't let the location, which is outside of Davis in what looks to be an old condo complex, put you off. This is some of the best traditional Italian food and wonderful service you will find anywhere. We started with the antipasto, which easily served 3-4 people and contained a delicious assortment of cured meats, cheeses, olives, and roasted almonds.... More

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
