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

Osteria Fasulo is a good candidate for best restaurant in Davis, probably in Yolo County. The food is reliably good to excellent and it is served in a quiet setting that is conducive to either business or romantic objectives. Remarkable menu for such a small operation.

Went for lunch and it took them a loooong time to serve us the food. I had a salad, which was good but not extraordinary, the Gnocchi al Tartufo which were pretty deceiving. The Gnocchi itself was good but lacking salt, I suspect they did not use olive oil so the taste was really not as good as expected, small... More

We had not been to this restaurant in many years and were so pleased to see that it is still fantastic. Currently, I'd say it is the best restaurant in Davis for a fancy meal. Everything we had from the appetizers to the desserts were delicious. We need to go back again sooner next time.

Maybe the build up was too much. Several people spoke of this restaurant in reverant tones and mentioned its authenticity. We went at lunch on a cold December day when outdoor dining was not possible. The complimentary crostini appetizer was a little stale. The tomato bisque was quite ordinary. My crab salad was okay. My friend did love the beet... More
