The food was outstanding, a bit pricey but definitely someplace I would try again. Our waiter was equally outstanding (very knowledgeable about food/prep, very personable and attentive).

I took my granddaughter there for her birthday and loved it. We both enjoy dining out and this place did not disappoint us. My gosh,, the food was perfect, the timing of our dishes and the wait staff,, perfect. The selection of dishes, perfect. We had 4 courses and the size of each portion was perfect. In one word for this place, Perfect. Can't wait for the outside seating area to open up so we can dine there again. We've tried a few other restaurants in the area and this one is now at the top of our list. You have to eat here.

We celebrated my wife's 60th birthday and the experience could not have been better. We have been to Osteria Fasulo a number or times over the past and we continue to be overwhelmed by the variety and quality of the food. This is one our favorite restaurants ever. Highly recommended!!

We have not eaten inside for a while and 2 of our party mentioned that they thought that seats at the inside tables were uncomfortable. I did not notice that, but outside on the patio is always nicer anyway. But as the temperatures drop and nights are colder, the patio is smaller and less available - and potentially not for the thin-blooded despite the heaters and tents outside. The food was creative and fabulous as always! The carpaccio ala Leonardo (lobster-stuffed filet mignon) is really super fab and light yet perfectly sized and drizzled with tasty EVOO. Service was kind and pleasant. Some other tables were a big energetic- perhaps due to holiday celebrations.

The pasta special, tagliatelle in butter truffle sauce was fantastic, and the cooping is carefully prepared and presented (seafood cut-up) in a nice light tomato sauce - both excellent. Service was great and sitting indoors is pleasant on the cooler evenings.

As always a wonderful but cool evening outdoors. Service as usual was super. The food excellent again, the only thing I missed was oysters, We started with sipping Prosecco and enjoyed a bottle of Zinfandel with dinner. Our guest from the Boston area was impressed with eating under the trees the last week of November.

we had the nicest Thanksgiving out on the patio with the lights and the canopies and the heaters and it was just gloriously beautiful, the food was fantastic and we enjoyed it so much with our friends. And we got to have our dogs there! Could not have been better. The food is exquisite at this restaurant and we don’t come often enough.And I have been craving
eggplant Parmesan for years unrequited until Thanksgiving! Thank you so much!
We had so much fun that we forgot to take photographs but we took a lovely walk around village homes before dinner and they were for delightful cats posed in a tree in the lovely fading light so that’s the post I’m making

We had the fixed priced Thanksgiving menu with three selections. The five us chose primarily between two of the three offerings for each of the four courses, and both choices for every course was delicious in the opinion of the person who ordered it. The Osso Bucco paired with saffron infused rice was particularly delicious. The wine selection is great. The espresso is authentic. The rustic tables setting was appropriate, and we were comfortable. Highly recommend.

This is the best restaurant in Davis.
Parmesan souffle appetizer was perfection itself.
Beet pasta ravioli with squid and orange butter sauce was exquisite - a lot of umami!
Those two courses almost did me in, and could only sample Osso Bucco alla Veneta that was deeply rich in flavor and cut like butter without being dry. Heavenly - it went home. Crespelle was nice ending.

The new winter menu is great. The octopus in the octopus salad is nicely grilled and tender. The new osso bucco is excellent and popular enough to be sold out on several nights. Service is outstanding. The outside patio is still comfortable with the heaters. Highly recommended.

We found Osteria Fasulo by chance on OpenTable on the way home from the airport. At first I thought I had the wrong address as there seems to be a townhome community at the same location. However, when you step into the courtyard you are welcomed by warm fire towers, fountains and fairy lights and an incredibly welcoming staff. The dining room is filled with Art and family portraits giving a very warm feel. We were greeted promptly and having been offered a choice we sat in the dining room. Immediately I noticed that every other diner was familiar with the staff and everyone commenting on how great everything was and "can't wait to see you again". The wine list was extensive, offering a broad but unpretentious selection. I had been expecting a traditional American Italian menu and was pleasantly surprised that while it was certainly Italian it was none of the Lasagne / Spaghetti / etc... that is offered everywhere. We started with a bottle of wine, Octopus, and a Carpaccio of raw filet mignon stuffed with lobster - very thinly sliced... Incredible! We followed with mains of the fish of the day, Halibut over spinach, and the special of the night Gnocchi with butter truffle sauce. The halibut was perfect. Flakey and full of flavor. The Gnocchi was by far better than I have ever had. Delicate, rich, flavorful and the perfect portion. Dinner was accompanied by fresh baked bread, first an olive bread and then fresh Italian... hot from the oven both times served with a parsley oil dip/spread. I don't usually get desert but we shared a gelato rolled in hazelnut and were given a spoon of meringue as a "kiss goodnight". Thank you Osteria Fasulo! We can't wait to see you again.

Definitely be best Italian food in Davis, everything we had was delicious. The setting is very nice on the patio/courtyard, as well. The inside restaurant looks cute as well, but we were seated outside. Definitely would recommend Osteria Fasulo.

So lucky to get back to enjoy dinner here. Even though we were not celebrating any special occasion, just eating here makes it a special occasion. Can't wait for Summer to dine outside again.
