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

With our son having just received his bachelors degree in food science and technology, we needed to find a restaurant that was worthy. Well this was it! A delightful meal with inspirational dishes. Fantastic service as well. Thanks for making our evening special.

Osteria Fasulo hides on the rural outskirts of Davis but fits perfectly in this already-Disneyesque-perfect Main Street town. Both the art-hung indoor dining room and the arbor'd, strung-lit, oak-dotted patio offer serene, vista'd peace crowned with inspired seasonal menus. As you gaze at the nearby community garden or an original oil, delicious appetizers, salads, soups and mains arrive to make... More

This is another of those restaurants that I really wanted to love - the only slight ding is that the dining room decor is tired and could use a refresh. We originally intended to eat downtown - but noisy restaurants and limited parking brought us out to the peaceful setting of Osteria Fasulo. The evening was cool so we sought... More

My husband and I stopped here on route home last week. We had visited several other restaurants first in downtown Davis, but they were too lively and too noisy, so we found this gem. We wanted a nice, quiet atmosphere. Osteria Fasulo fit the bill! Our waitress, Stephanie, was delightful - courteous, cordial, friendly, and efficient. We were served a... More
