Love, Love, Love this place! My go to for any special occasion or family and friends coming from out of town. Love the food, atmosphere and service. It is very consistent and always a pleasure. The staff is amazing, they are all great hosts, however Mateo is our favorite. He makes the experience that much better.
Can't wait to go back!

Waiter seemed a bit inexperienced tho attentive. Pasta dish was excellent as always. Seafood cioppino was not as interesting as other main dishes we've had at Osteria Fasulo.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Was excited to try this restaurant. First impression seemed promising. Nice small, intimate setting, white tablecloths, waitress lit candle upon seating us. Prefixed menu. However, food was good not totally exceptional. Ordered fish and it was just lukewarm. Husband was just blah about his steak. Waitstaff wore jeans and sneakers. They were very friendly but not well trained for a $300+ meal. Overall, would go back if price reasonably.

Amazing Food, Great Service. Two Brothers and their father really take Italian food to the next level. Love the mult-course set menus they have for special occasions.

The noise level was high because of a large group in the center of the room.

The food was delicious. I had scallops, my friend had the buccatini in squid sauce. For dessert we shared a tartuffo, and it was yummy. The only problem with the food is that the portions are really too small, even at lunch. But the excellent bread helps, as done the little appetizer offered before the main course. We had an outstanding server.

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.

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.

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.
