Massimo made sure we had a wonderful experience by recommending terrific food and wine and pacing the meal perfectly! Our family left saying that every meal in Davis would be spent here!
Best Italian restaurant in town. Ideal for romantic dinners, anniversaries, celebrations etc.
This was our first dinner out al fresco since March. Our service was outstanding, the food perfect, the ambiance lovely.
We were not rushed at all, in saying that it was a 2 hour dinner of joy!
We were seating immediately and ordered promptly. We were seated only outdoors in a lovely environment due to COVID.food was brought out in a timely manner but not rushed. It was a memorable dining experience
It was the wife’s birthday and Osteria Fasulo made the experience especially pleasurable!
Great food, great ambiance, Every dish we had was outstanding, Very nice atmosphere and service, too.
Excellent all around!
Chris from SEATTLE was our server and we had a most enjoyable conversation. Knowledgeable and most friendly. Ask for Chris if possible.
Beet salad, risotto of the day, veal medallions, and grilled salmon - all spectacularly good, especially the risotto. We sat inside though the outdoor seating would have been very pleasant, too. The inside was partitioned by lovely screens, so that most tables were secluded from the others, making the atmosphere very intimate. Just a fabulous restaurant!
The new fall menu has many good options. Everyone in our party was happy with what they ordered. The service was prompt and attentive and the spacing and safety precautions were good. Beautiful ambiance under the lights outdoors. We will return soon!
The food is always great, would like to see them make the outside a litter nicer. a few flowers would be nice.
Very nice indoor arrangement!
Osteria Fasoulo is the best Restaurant in Davis. The food is always delicious and the service is wonderful! I’ve know Leonardo, Marcelo, Massimo, Mateo and Patricia for years and always enjoy going back!
Limited menu but ample outdoor seating and great attention to detail for every dish. Great wine list too. I think the food is actually better with the restricted menu than when I had been there before. Highly recommended for a relaxing and special night out. Only downside was lack of a full bar, so just beer and wine by the bottle.
We really enjoyed this hidden spot. Food was spot on. Service was friendly. Wine pours were generous. And the outside seating was lovely. We will be back.
Their menu is back to their basics with a seasonable twist ; the food was fantastic- crab and grilled Romain, polenta with burrata, gnocchi with ricotta and crab
Everything about our meal was excellent. Loved the outdoor setting.
No better place to dine during the pandemic. Beautiful outdoor courtyard. Hand-crafted, generations old Italian recipes come to life with fresh ingredients with a modern flair. Every bite is breath-taking. Can't recommend this place highly enough! We have to support the restaurants we still want to have around in the future, so PLEASE go out and dine at Osteria Fasulo, it's a true gem in Davis.
Always a beautiful meal in a beautiful setting. Well prepared Italian cuisine served impeccably. When the sun goes down sitting in the garden courtyard with twinkling lights is magical.
They have adapted well to our new normal of outdoor, distanced dining. If we forget for a moment the outside world and relax in our dining moment then all is perfect.
Love this place.... Out waitress Patricia was as always amazing!!!
Excellent service, ambiance, and killer polenta and risotto to name a few. Wonder evening celebrating a special birthday. Thank you Osteria Team!
Excellent for the area; couldn't give them a 5 star rating only because the restrictions due to coronavirus reduce the overall quality/variety of experience.
We've eaten at Osteria Fasulo many times over the past 16 years, but this was the first time in the COVID-19 era. Rest assured, the outdoor dining is just as pleasant as always, but even a bit quieter than before since they limit the number of reservations so not as many others around. The menu is more limited, but we had no trouble finding favorites. The wine list is extensive! Enjoy!
The best risotto and veal around… Service is always outstanding and friendly. The patio is unbeatable.
This chef knows how to be subtle yet flavorful.. nothing hits you - just a fine melody of tastes! And our server has a sense of humor and deep knowledge of what the ingredients do...
Truly a hidden gem. This restaurant is tucked away in a residential part of town. Nice big patio for outdoor dining during the outbreak. Modified, shortened menu as a result, so don't go off of what's online as that is out of date due to the virus. Very good traditional Italian food and desserts none the less. Good portions and finely cooked appetizers and entrees!
If you wanna enter the holedeck to an italian paradise, this olace is a must. Food is 100.
Gnocchi, lamb, great. Friendly service, and a nice patio...
Excellent Italian food with interesting and unusual menu. Charming atmosphere in an attractive outdoor courtyard. Excellent choice for summer dining al fresco.
Like many Covid-affected restaurants Osteria Fasulo in Davis has had to make adjustments. They have done an exceptional job at that. Aided by a very large outdoor seating area allowing for proper distancing the restaurant has more than enough capacity to maintain its standards of service and quality Italian cuisine. They adhere to disposable menus but also offer daily specials to round out the offerings. We shard and enjoyed a polenta appetizer together with a very generous offering of clams and mussels in a lovely garlic sauce. My wife enjoyed the gnocchi special with truffles and I had the most memorable veal dish ever. The veal could be cut with a fork, it was that tender. The sauce was lovely and went well with the mashed potatoes. A bottle of Prosecco helped us through the meal, which was topped off with a chocolate salami and chocolate gelata bomba (my name since I can't recall the Italian version). Leonardo treated us to an anniversary crepe dessert that was delicate and exquisite. Highly recommended.
Awesome outdoor dining set up in the courtyard. Misters provide some relief from the heat and the service is great.
Cant go wrong with the gnocchi, risotto or veal. Service always friendly and great. Outdoor patio is lovely.
We always have the best time here--long conversations over great wine, savoring the interesting dishes, enjoying the courtyard, chatting with our waiter.
Long-time patron - They have never disappointed...
Best local getaway in Davis! Close your eyes and open them and pretend you're in Northern Italy in a delightful garden with yummy food. Staff masked and tables very well distanced, so we felt very safe. Cibo delizioso!
Food amazing as always! Bessie was great!
The food was excellent. Fresh, good flavors, well served. We will certainly go back.
The kumquatcello at the end of the meal was a wonderful treat. The whole meal and service were top-drawer.
