Fasulo is beyond reproach in all regards - welcome, table setup, food, wine, and service. The meal started with complimentary savory petit fours and grew in tasty leaps and bounds, The location is out of the way so one needs good directions and an eagle eye to spot the small sign but the effort is well worth it.

We chose to dine at Osteria Fasulo for a special occasion and were very happy with the choice. The menu was diverse enough to make all four of us find the right dish. Portions are not big but plenty to enjoy. The ingredients felt fresh, organic and of high quality. The presentation was very good. The lamb leg roast was... More

I might be a masochist, but I like to try disappointing places more than once to see if anything has changed, especially if others keep giving it good reviews. In this case, not much had changed. Plain food is still over-priced, though service from our Belarussian server was exceptional and fun. Osteria might be the most hoity-toity of Davis' restaurants,... More

First time here. Unique spot just on the other side of highway 113 west of Davis. Small place with good knowledgeable and professional service by waitress Tanya. She was the only one on the floor and did a great job dealing with several tables including several walk ins. Limited but fine lunch menu. Interesting that they were out of three... More

You'll think your in Northen Italy and France with these heavenly dishes and great wine selection. Super knowledgable staff will walk you through the exotic menu. The dining room is beautifully decorated and the outdoor garden seating is perfect when the weather is right. Put this place on your bucket list!

Came here for a date night with my hubby and was blown away. Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. We took her recommendation and started with the Dungeness crab salad. Actually we started with a bottle of wine, but then the salad :-) It was delicious! The salad was grilled romaine with crabmeat,... More

In Davis, where all the resturants offer Vegan options, they don't have a single healthy option on the menu. And, while the prices for the items are absurdly overpriced, the portions are small so they expect you to buy a 4 course meal, and nothings included. They say you're not there for the food, but the experience. More like getting... More

What a nice surprise, I thought that Davis was a virtual "good food" desert until I dined here. The food was seasonally inspired and quite divine and the service impeccable. Not exactly a romantic indoor setting but that's okay, I was there for the love of food. The steamed clams and mussels were concentrated with exquisite flavors and the fava... More

A post graduation gathering of an extended family. With a limited but varied graduation menu, the restaurant enabled a lovely and tasty celebration. The pasta and trout were delicious, the appetizers fabulous. The servers handily managed our group of seventeen attendees.

We were delighted with our dinner at Osteria Fasulo following graduation at UCDavis. We made reservations several weeks in advance and chose this restaurant away from downtown partly because it allowed us to avoid having to hunt for parking on this busy weekend. For this weekend there was a fixed price 3 course menu. We had to choose from 3... More
