The meal was delightful. I have been many times for dinner but this was the first time for lunch. The linen tablecloths and excellent service made for a very special meal. Our server Mark was wonderful.
Consistently reliable, especially recently. Nicely remodeled, making the ambiance more pleasant. Food, especially the seafood (scallops and fish of the day) and the fresh pastas, were excellent. Good selection of Italian wines (and CA too), spanning a wide price range. More expensive than local restaurants, but it's the best in Davis/Winters/Sac.
We traveled 70 miles to try the food here and to meet friends who traveled as much from the opposite direction. It was well worth the trip. The food and service was excellent. We broke our usual budget but we will do it again as the food was outstanding.
The dining experience here is about as close to perfect as you can get in Davis. The serving staff is knowledgeable and impeccably trained. The food and ambiance is decidedly Italian, through and through, which makes this a perfect spot for romance. I always say, you know you're in Europe when the first question they ask you is "sparkling water or still?" Get a table under the grapevines and don't be in a hurry. They'll start you with a chef's taste from the kitchen and tempt you to linger with their imported desserts.
We have been going to Osteria for years now. We really enjoy dining with friends in the outdoor seating when the weather is nice. The food is always wonderful, the staff is super nice, and the service is great. We highly recommend it to everyone!
Exceptional meal ticked away in an unassuming location. The personal service and intimacy of the restaurant make you feel like a special guest in someone’s home.
If you LOVE Italian food and an amazing menu that will tantalize your taste buds, then this is the place to be!
Gnocchi with porcini mushrooms -exquisitely light and full flavored.
Beet salad gently dressed to perfection.
Seared ahi perfectly prepared for maximum enjoyment.
Lovely meal shared with and old friend!
We enjoyed the True Italian cuisine, white tablecloths and attention to detail! Can’t wait to return!
A nice meal, however my seat was near the kitchen which resulted in lots of kitchen crosstalk hitting my right ear as I was trying to hear my wife talk from across the table for two. Really enjoyed the clams and mussels though.
It was fantastic! The food was outstanding. We will go back again. We sat outside and our waiter was very attentive to our table. Highly recommend it.
Excellent and authentic Italian food. Incredible desserts that are creative within the Italian tradition.
Amazing outdoor set up !
A local "gem" this is always a good choice for a special occasions, that is getting more consistent and better each year. The scallops appetizer, truffled gnocchi and lobster ravioli were outstanding.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a late reservation and had a great experience. We had been to this restaurant once before but had sat outside on that occasion, so this was our first time dining inside. The space was intimate and quaint. The service was friendly and attentive. Our waitress offered tastings of the wines and provided recommendations for our meal. The restaurant emptied but we were never made to feel pressured to wrap things up. They even brought us a complimentary dessert in recognition of our anniversary. We will definitely return.
Amazing! Patricia was a delight and the food was spectacular. We split the pasta dishes and that worked well.
Special holiday dinner out with the family. Mateo was an excellent waiter. We shared oysters, scallops, roasted tomato caprese salad, beat salad, fettuccine, gnocchi, duck, and ciopinno, all delicious and all left full and happy.
Great food and wine; very attentative server. Good selection on the menu.
We had exceptional service from a young, dark-haired woman whose parents own a bakery in town. But then, we have always had exceptional service. The food was wonderful. We love eating in the courtyard in the summer, but the dining room is quite nice in the winter.
We loved the evening and look forward to another . I have had dinner and lunch there and both were outstanding.
This was our third visit to OF. The first two times were wonderful, so not sure what happened this time. After being seated, we waited almost 15 minutes before being handed menus. Our wine service was poor and intermittent. The food was disappointing, with salty gnocchi, bland pasta arrabiata, and goopy over-sauced pesto linguine. For the price we paid, it was pretty bad. One bright spot: a delicious creme brûlée. I don't think we'll be going back there. Sad.
I have been there several times and never disappointed. One of the best Italian restaurants in the region...
Pricy, but worth every penny. Come here for a special occasion.
Great little neighborhood gem. Although I've referred my Airbnb guests to the restaurant, I had never been. We had a wonderful waitress, relatively new to the job and she was delightful. We were having a little difficulty choosing a wine, and she allowed us to try tastes until we settled on the right one--with a little help from the wine steward. Every course was excellent. The white polenta was a special treat. Yum! Looking forward to a return visit soon.
Great local restaurant for Davisites, but worth the drive for those in surrounding communities. The restaurant feels like the family-owned business that it is, with great service, pride in the menu, and excellent food.
Excellent dining experience. I've been there twice ... the food is great, the dining room is comfortable, and the staff were attentive.
Osteria continues to bring forth a creative and seasonal menu with great service. Each seasonal highlighted menu captures the essence of the area and the best the Central Valley has to offer. When the weather gets cool or rainy, you move inside to a nicely redecorated and comfortable. It makes you feel like you are actually dining in someones home!
Went there to celebrate a co-workers birthday. The food was amazing as always. The server recommended the gnocchi. They were pillowy bites of goodness.
I rated the service as a 3 only because the poor server was alone. I guess they were busier than planned. He did his best and he was very pleasant. But, he could not keep up.
Excellent food, wonderful waitress, very friendly and low key. Gnocchi outstanding, also the veal, salad, and filet.
The best Italian food. Portions aren't very big, but it's definitely rich, fresh and tasty! My husband and i have been always happy with their food. Excellent service! Always prepared and very friendly. Outdoor is extremely nice if the weather allows. Love the their seasonal menu. They change their menu every season, so it never gets boring and we get to try different kind of food each season. Have been eating there for many years and definitely recommend it.
Amazing food, wonderful ambient, and great service!
When in Davis dine alfresco at Osteria Fasulo for an amazing Italian experience. Marco, our server, delivered top notch service. The evening started with silky white bean pate amusebouche. Their wine list provides variety for every budget. Appetizers, beet salad and polenta, were bursting with flavors. The main courses satiated our families varied culinary needed - vegetarian lasagna, sweet n spice scallops, and rabbit gnocchi. End he night with an airy and lightly sweet Torta al Limone and a splash of complimentary grappa or lemon cello.
Truly a hidden gem in Davis. Was celebrating my daughter's birthday. Mateo is an outstanding server, very knowledgeable with all the dishes and specials. Will be coming back again.
Had a wonderful lunch in the garden. The food was excellent and service exceptional.
Wonderful Italian food. Authentic and romantic atmosphere either in the cozy inside seating or in the ample outdoor seating under the grape arbor or in the fountain piazza.
Absolutely delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!
Wonderful, authentic Italian food with pleasant and knowledgeable server!
We have been there several times over the years and the restaurant has gone downhill. Pasta ordinary with too little sauce. Best on a nice day when you can eat outside.
Treated my friend and her husband to a nice dinner for her 65th birthday. Outstanding meal and atmosphere for our opportunity to converse and catch up with each other. Waiter was very good and friendly and did right by us (we were the first to arrive for dinner) but he seemed stretched pretty far with the number of tables he had as evening went on - no problem for us as we were not in a hurry and enjoyed the leisurely pace, but they maybe need an extra waiter for dinner period. Again, food was outstanding and we had excellent service. Weather cooperated and we were very comfortable outside and enjoyed the twinkle lights as they materialized as it became darker. We were seated under grape arbor and by Village Homes vegetable garden.
The food was great except it is pretty pricey. Definitely did not expect to find such good food in Davis. Portions were decent. Desert was okay, again a bit pricey.
