You deserve a fatastic evening

OK, I know that it was an anniversary celebration with my wife and I, but romanticism aside, this was a wonderful meal and a fantastic evening. I read many reviews of this restaurant, and had reservations about making this decision because of some negative reviews. I didn't want to spoil the... read more

Although it is not inexpensive, it is a quaint destination restaurant in a hidden spot in this college town. The indoor dining area is small and cozy, and the patio dining on a warm night is magical. The food is excellent, but be prepared for a little sticker shock.

Had an amazing celebratory dinner for daugther’s graduation in Davis last night at a small, family owned Italian restaurant, Osteria Fasulo. The light repast started with Gnocchi pan seared with wine and foie gras. Excellent. Then Polenta with the Cranberry reduction. Wonderful. Next, the Parmesan soufflé wrapped in Prosciutto and drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar. Heaven. Followed by handmade Duck and... More

I am giving Osteria Fasulo a 5 for the excellent food and great atmosphere. It is a treat to eat here. It does feel like you could be eating in Italy. Also, Osteria Fasulo is located in an out of the way location out in the country, west of Davis. It makes the whole experience fun, and like you are... More

We chose to dine at this restaurant after reading all the great reviews while we were in Davis to visit our student during Thanksgiving break. I had called to make a reservation and was told they would call back to confirm. I never heard back so I ended up calling and confirmed the reservation. We arrived and were greeted warmly... More

Osteria Fasulo is located in the midst of a pleasant garden, where dining takes place al fresco in warm months. Otherwise, dining is inside in rather tight but nevertheless elegant quarters. The owner, who grew up in northern Italy, along with his two sons, and a very talented chef puts out what is, in my opinion, the best food in... More

Osteria is very pricey and very slow, and only has one music CD (Andrea Bocelli), which you will hear again and again, because of the very slow thing. However! The food's excellent, and rather elegant and they have a lovely garden where you can have lunch or dinner outside. Because the evenings are usually nice in Davis, go for it.... More
