We’ve eaten at Osteria Fasulo for years. It used to be our favorite restaurant in Davis, however, now it has become very overpriced. The food is good, the service is excellent, but the value is not there anymore.

Always meets expectations....Traditional dishes are enhanced by novel sauces or subtle changes in texture. I have never been disappointed.

The food is super good and the ambiance is romantic. Our server Mateo was amazing. We got the quail and lobster ravioli. The restaurant is in a weird location but it’s worth it

The food and atmosphere were great, but we spent $150 between us (only 1 alcoholic beverage) and were both hungry soon after. For mains that are $30+ (and with an app and dessert) you should be comfortably full. At other restaurants, we normally spend $50-$75 and have leftovers.

Fasulo is a small restaurant hiding in the center of what appear to be townhomes. Don't let the modest entrance turn you away. Courtyard seating is wonderful, if the weather doesn't cooperate inside seating is available. And then there's the food! The quality dishes turned out of a tiny looking kitchen are incredible. Be sure to share an appetizer or two, I think they are the stars of the show.

We are from Seattle and in Davis for a week. We found Osteria on line and loved it. Great food, great friendly service, and good enough ambiance. We’re definitely going back before we leave. Not cheap, but not overpriced. Go there if you like good food!!

We believe Osteria Fasulo has been an impressive addition to the restaurant scene in Davis. It is our "go to" restaurant.
However, at our last visit our guest had a Radicchio Salad that was strange - very difficult to eat. I recommend that you omit this from your menu.

The restaurant's garden is a lovely place for an alfresco lunch. Our group of three had 2 salads and one pasta dish, along with the delicious amuse-bouche and a shared crème brûlee. Our waiter was outstanding in attention to detail and prompt service.

We sat outside because it was a beautiful evening; so, the noise level was much better than inside, even with the boisterous group next to us. Our server, Patricia, was wonderful -- very attentive and very informative. And the food was terrific!!

Dining outside on a warm fall evening at Osteria Fasulo is casual, relaxing and elegant at the same time. Our food was perfect and Mateo, our waiter, was quietly friendly, informative, enthusiastic and meticulous. In addition to what we ordered, there were complimentary appetizers and a sweet bite of merengue with a fruit center before dessert and a glass of limoncello or sambuca to finish.

The food was wonderful, as usual. We had the pulpo (octopus) that was very tasty, along with the veal, salmon and the osso buco. All were excellent.
The waiter was beyond patient with my daughter who asked many questions to assess the presence of gluten or dairy. After the third round, she fessed up to her restrictions and the waiter never failed to be totally solicitous. So, she got a dish that was suitable and we all enjoyed the evening.

The outside courtyard reminds me of a country restaurant somewhere in Tuscany. Service great food great - highly recommend for a quiet relaxed dinner experience just like in the old country.

RU Serious? Fasulo is Fab! The food is top notch. We are foodies and have dined at many Michelin rated places and Fasulo's presentation and taste is at least at par with those places without the outrageous prices. We love the fact that this little jewel is tucked away in Davis. We always look forward to our reservation. From appetizers, primi, secondi, and desserts, it's all delicious. We recommend you sample and share. Yummy.

The food was very good here and we loved sitting outside near the vineyard. It felt very much like being in Italy. The only real criticism is the cost of the meal - we paid $125 for two people and we had one salad, two pasta entrees, two glasses of wine, and dessert. It was a little steep.

My date and I shared our food. The dishes were nicely prepared and very delicious.
Our waiter, Matteo was superb and helpful when it came to choosing our food.
He presented a dessert treat to my date who was celebrating her birthday. Also we ate outside on a perfect night.I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to all of my family and friends.

The outdoor area was very disappointing. Dry and dusty, tables, chairs and the ground covered with dry leaves and the planters bone dry and plants drooping. Not welcoming! Having said that, we opted for the inside as it was very warm outside.

The food is not inexpensive but is always very tasty and interesting. Tables in the outdoor garden add much charm to an evening of dining. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and not intrusive. Osteria Fasulo compares very favorably to the best European dining experiences.
