It's pretty pricey for the Davis dining scene. Appetizers are $14-$25, salads are $10-$25. Primi (first course -- can also be ordered alone as main course) is $16-$25 and secondi (second course -- can also be ordered alone as main course) is $25-$35, and desserts are $8-$12. Note that these prices are for the dinner menu; lunch is less. Of course, any wine you order can add to your bill ''substantially''.<br> + <br> + Entrees are traditional Italian: their secondi dishes are meat-centered. The food is presented attractively on large plates rather than just being functionally served. The dishes have the usual olive oil, eggplant, and tomatoes one would expect of a Mediterranean restaurant.<br> + <br> + Osteria Fasulo's menu changes seasonally. In the past, the menu items tended to be more expensive, and it wouldn't have been unusual for some customers to pay $100 or more for dinner if they were inclined to splurge. The most expensive dish was $52 and appeared on the autumn menu of 2009. It was a pan-seared veal chop top with foie gras and black truffles ragout, served on a bed of fresh arugula. But since no one was ordering that dish at that price, the item was scrapped from the menu and all other items' prices were re-calibrated, albeit temporarily, to lure some business.<br> + <br> + Fasula's Osteria is located in ["Village Homes"], the only business to be so situated. There is an incredibly small interior and, in good weather, a large outdoor patio. They pick many of the vegetables from their own garden, which is generally quite colorful with ["Morning Glory"] and other plants. The menu is posted outside, next to the door. If you want to impress a date, or if your other is paying, this is the place to go. Keep in mind that this place is for those with a fat wallet, so if you or your other thinks ["McDonald's"] is pricey, someone is in for a shock.<br> + <br> + "Osteria Fasulo" means a restaurant run by a Fasula, like "Joe's Restaurant" in English, run by a Joe. The same owner opened another restaurant, Il Posto ("The Place"), in downtown ["Sacramento"] in August ["2005"], which closed early in ["2006"].<br> + <br> + It is trying very hard to be in the same league as Bibas in ["Sacramento"] in terms of the quality of the food, although it is considerably higher priced when one takes into account that the servings at Osteria Fasulo are much, much smaller than those at Bibas. The good part is that, unlike Bibas where one needs a reservation, here you can always show up in shorts and flip-flops and tables are usually available. Of course, you also have to leave town for Bibas, both physically, and (given the laid back nature and no reservations needed) culturally. Plus, Fasula's Osteria has colorful dog bowls, something Bibas doesn't have (shame on Bibas!).<br> + <br> + <br> + Osteria Fasulo won the ["2008"] Souperbowl with their Roasted ["tomatoes" Tomato] Soup (see the recipe below).

It’s time to move from summer’s light, refreshing dishes to more substantial, nourishing meals that will keep you warm through the winter. Here are some of the region’s coziest restaurants, experts at dishing out food that will make you feel all toasty inside—even when it’s cold outside.Osteria Fasulo<br> + Davis’ Osteria Fasulo is one of the most romantic restaurants in the region. Situated on the edge of a fecund community vegetable garden, it has a stunning outdoor courtyard bordered by trellised grapevines and punctuated by leafy trees strung with tiny lights. Indoors, the charming dining room features scarlet walls hung with striking artwork painted by owner Leonardo Fasulo and old black-and-white photographs of the Fasulo family. The menu is Italian, and you can’t go wrong with pasta, especially the handmade raviolis, with their silky exteriors and flavorful stuffings. It’s clear Leonardo Fasulo loves seafood, which pops up in his rich lasagna di mare (housemade pasta layered with seafood and béchamel sauce) and his hearty cioppino. The pesce del giorno (fish of the day) is also a good bet. On a recent visit, I tried the pan-roasted sea bass served on fabulous white beans. The restaurant also offers a nice selection of Italian wines.

And they haven't yet been picketed by P.E.T.A? Huh... Well if I ever get a date (like that's gonna happen anytime soon! HAH!!!), this'll be the place I'd pick. Better start saving now, I suppose. --["Users/thelonepiper555"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-02-05 09:41:04'' [[nbsp]] Osteria Fasulo is one of our standards for recruitment dinners. It is one of the best places to eat in Davis and you shouldn't trust any disrespectful reviews. But don't come here expecting to save either time or money. If your standard is a one-hour dinner for $25, then your expectations will put you in the mood to find fault with everything.<br> + <br> + The last time that I was here, I had lobster ravioli and the chocolate creme brulee dessert. The ravioli was an A and the creme brulee was an A+. Is it worth it? Sometimes it is. The one big problem is that sometimes the dinner is too slow, even for the patient. If they could reduce the wait on busy nights, then the food would in my view justify the high prices.<br> + --["Users/GregKuperberg"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-03-08 22:40:46'' [[nbsp]] I went to Osteria Fasulo tonight for the first time. We were promptly seated (with reservations) and served a complimentary 1oz glass of prosecco. I ordered the carpaccio and the tenderloin (rare). My guests ordered the gnocchi. We shared a bottle of prosecco. Our final bill with tip was $156. Most of the food was great. The portions were much too small for my friend and I (we are weightlifters). The carpaccio had a very high moisture content. Carpaccio needs to be prepared from beef that has been aged (where the moisture content is decreased by evaporation/sublimation). This meat was not aged (unaged beef is pink, not deep red) and therefore the carpaccio was flavorless. The sauce with the carpaccio was also very flavorless. The carpaccio was not stuffed with lobster, I guess they changed the menu or something. The filet was served with two potato wedges and green beans. The green beans were excellent. I didn't get a chance to try the potatoes; my girlfriend snatched them away from me. The filet was not rare, it was medium/medium rare. I also noticed that the filet was not served as a steak, it was served in pieces. The gnocchi looked good, but there were only about 10 pieces in the dish. My guest was served a free dessert item for his birthday, and my girlfriend and I ordered a cannoli which was terrific. I won't be eating at this restaurant again, but not because the food and service weren't excellent, but because my appetite is far too robust for these portions. The bottom line? A lot of the food was great, but the carpaccio was completely unacceptable. --["Users/JackRoehrig"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-03-17 10:58:22'' [[nbsp]] My wife and I have eaten here a number of times for dinner over the years its been open. It is always quite a treat. Recently we went for a quick lunch and found that to be an excellent experience as well. If you want excellent food, and a good atmosphere, give them a try. Lunch time is great, as their menu is still quite good, but much easier on the wallet. --["Users/Aaron.Curtin"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-05-06 09:11:25'' [[nbsp]] My wife and I have been here numerous times over the past four or five years and while we usually spend more than we expected, we always leave feeling that it was worth it. We ate dinner here last Saturday night and though no one thing was perfect, the combination of the lovely seating out on the patio, the great food, the friendly staff, and the owner's attentiveness made it a perfect evening. Well worth the expense for us. --["Users/kieransdad"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-06-06 08:52:40'' [[nbsp]] This is a special dining experience that I always enjoy. The food is always wonderful. I recently went with a group of friends for dinner. I had the raviolois (yum) and the L’Insalata di Mare (extra yum). But, what makes this special is the atmosphere and the staff. We have always had great service and Leanardo always comes by to chat and enhance the experience. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-09-13 17:44:06'' [[nbsp]] My review of this restaurant is long overdue, and so I cannot give specifics. Here's the impression that lingers: a relaxed meal on a lovely patio with our dog curled at our feet, slowly working our way through several courses of delectable food, followed by a stroll on the greenbelt. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion or even just a special treat. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2008-10-26 15:23:18'' [[nbsp]] I came here with a friend and my Godfather, who (thankfully) paid for the dinner. We ordered pasta and soup to start and each of us had entrees after. I ordered the salmon, my Godfather the filet mignon, and my friend the lobster/spinach/cheese ravioli. It was really windy, so we decided to eat inside.<br> + <br> + It's expensive, especially on a college budget. For a special occassion or a treat, it's a pretty good choice. Their gnocchi is prepared differently than what you normally see (almost baked looking?), but the sauce is deliciously cheesy and the browning adds a satisfying crunch. The salmon was cooked perfectly, with a nice delicate sauce and tasty asparagus to go with it. The ravioli had a great, also cheesy taste, but didn't taste very much of lobster. My godfather especially requested that the filet mignon be cooked cut in half, and it came out delicious. The corn chowder soup was watery and not very tasty.<br> + <br> + The service was great here. We wanted a larger amount of gnocchi to start than they offer in a regular order, but we didn't want to order double. They were willing to negociate "an order and a half" with us, but really they gave us about double the amount anyways. Also, when the waitor saw that we didn't like our soup, he offered to replace it with something else, on the house. Very professional. --["Users/BrandonWong"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-01-16 12:14:28'' [[nbsp]] Our absolute favorite upscale restaurant in Davis, and we've tried them all.<br> + <br> + Patio setting is casual but lovely on a summer evening, with a very Tuscan feel to it. Inside is more formal. And not downtown = no parking nightmares!<br> + <br> + Dress code outside is super casual; Village Homers are comfortable showing up in khaki shorts.<br> + <br> + Servers are highly knowledgeable and helpful, friendly but not overbearing.<br> + <br> + Prices are definitely up there, but it's a great splurge. Our server suggested coming just for dessert and a glass of wine to enjoy the setting. For the money, I would rather spend it here than at hushed, formal Seasons; hit-or-miss Mustard Seed; or Soga's with its bar scene.<br> + <br> + Portions are not huge, but the food is rich, filling and seasonal. We've never been disappointed with a selection, only with the hefty price tag.<br> + --["Users/DavisKid84"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-03-01 20:16:44'' [[nbsp]] When I heard the best restaurant in Davis had a new lunch special, I knew finally, it was time. Never having been able to afford this restaurant before, I was very excited to experience it such good food. I was not disappointed. For $20 you get soup or salad, a pasta entree, a dessert AND a glass of wine. Three courses for $20... Since I knew they had recently won the local Souper Bowl soup competition, I ordered that of course. I had the homemade spinach pasta (divine!) and my date had the pesto linguine with the most fresh, crispy vegetables you could imagine. Our server was very friendly and knowledgible. I was glad I didn't have plans after lunch because I would have been late. Other than that I was happy with the value I got and I WILL come back for dinner. On my next special occasion. --["Users/TCSmith"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-09-08 13:06:06'' [[nbsp]] I can't believe it took me 8 years in the area to come here! We went here last weekend for my birthday dinner and I was not disappointed. We had the tomato mozarella salad, halibut, and the bolognese lasanga, followed by tiramisu. Everything was excellent and I actually appreciated a place that had amazing food without a stuffy environment. The outside dining is especially casual. My only complaint was that I didn't see any wines by the glass (nor did I ask), but just ordered a whole bottle instead. Anyone know their corkage fee? They were out of the wine we ordered, so we had to get a more expensive variety, but I could definietly see the value of BYOW if their corkage is reasonable. I'd highly recommend Osteria Fasulo. --["Users/AmLin"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2009-11-18 22:44:14'' [[nbsp]] I went here for a birthday dinner with my boyfriend and his parents, and it was by far the tastiest meal I've had in Davis. The dishes we had included the frog legs (with polenta and marinara), gnocchi (pan-fried, has amazing texture), risotto, vegeterian dish (red pepper stuffed with magic), fish dish (pistachio-encrusted salmon), carpaccio, filet mignon, cannoli, and tiramisu. The textures and presentation of the foods was just soo perfect. The place has a beautiful patio and cozy indoor area, and very pleasant service. For wines &lt;$50, they offer wine by the glass. Though we came here for the first time as a special occasion, I'm definitely excited to come back for the (cheaper) lunch or on another occasion. --["Users/lingawonga"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-01-21 21:02:27'' [[nbsp]] I've never dine here, but one night I was craving for crème brulée and called and ask them whether they do a take out. They said yes, but told me to "bring the container back" and I was like "huh?" Turned out the crème brulée was baked in the ramekin (duh, of course). They were so nice about it when I brought it back the next day. Only in a small town! --["Users/LeeY"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-05-11 16:54:44'' [[nbsp]] Went there last Thursday. So good. Our party had the lobster and beef carpaccio and the baked oysters for starters. Really good. The dinner was delicious. This truly is the best spot to have dinner in Davis. We sat outside in the patio and Leanardo stopped by and chatted with us, which made the evening even better. It is true that this is not an inexpensive place to eat. It is, however, a wonderful treat. I need to go there more. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-06-24 09:39:06'' [[nbsp]] We went here last night for our anniversary dinner. Scallops, risotto and chicken dish were fabulous as usual, but we did have one low moment. A fellow courtyard diner brought her very well-behaved lab to accompany her. The chef came out and made her tie him up. Yeah, I get it, but she was so well-behaved! On a side note, I found out they put bread in their parsley-olive oil dipping sauce, so gluten free eaters beware. --["Users/AmLin"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-07-12 02:54:01'' [[nbsp]] This is definitely a dog-friendly joint. We went there a couple of weeks back and ate on their patio. There were only two other couples eating there and a lone woman who had a nice white lab with her. As soon as our dinner arrived, the lab was there, drooling and looking for food. It was a nice dog, but the food cost an arm and a leg and came in lilliputian quantities that it was hard for us to share with the dog. We spent the evening holding our forks in one hand and patting the dog with the other. It's now hard to even remember what we ate, since the dog became the center of our attention. I have a suggestion for the Fasulo owners: cut the menu prices by 50% and double the quantity of food you serve, and also add a dog food menu alongside the regular menu. I'll bet you'll double your clientele very quickly, especially from the sparse lot that we found there when we ate there, with dog owners flocking to your patio. The patio, by the way, is quite pleasant, and ideally suited to a dog-friendly atmosphere. --["Users/JohnBB"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2010-08-23 09:26:12'' [[nbsp]] The Tuesday night wine tasting with appetizers is such a perfect way to enjoy an evening. The patio is the best outdoor dining in Davis. The service is wonderful and the appetizers are free with a purchase of a glass of wine. They also have a light meal menu that goes well if want a little more than the appetizers. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-04-28 11:45:34'' [[nbsp]] On a basic hit-or-miss scale, maybe last night, this restaurant was serving a miss. My date and I first started with the Carpaccio: it was saturated in olive oil, delimiting the flavor of the lobster and cutlets. Next the soup, a tomato bisque, which we pleasantly enjoyed (delicious) and the highlight of the meal. For primi, we had the special, ratatouille risotto, which was full of flavor but the arborio was under cooked. For our main course, she ordered a ricotta-filled ravioli, tasty at first but became overpowering by the end; I requested the cioppino, which had a excellent base, shrimp, and lobster, but the mussels, clams, and scallops were over cooked and mussels specifically were not fresh (having the shelfed, overly fishey after taste). The wine paring was right on (I forget the specifics of the wine but that is a good thing).<br> + <br> + The reason it was a miss, for the $100 price point and clientele they are attempting to bring in (foodies), I feel everything needed to be dead on. I could understand if the house was booked, but it was half full last night, so that kitchen was not stretched and should have been able to get everything at least par. A million points for presentation, but it was simply lacking consistency and the flavor. Maybe I would be less harsh if the dinner did not come out to ~$160; at that price, I was just expecting more.<br> + <br> + Okay for Davis, sub-standard for Bay Area Cuisine. --["Users/ebespiritu"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-05-16 13:16:20'' [[nbsp]] I went with my boyfriend recently on a Saturday night at around 8pm for dessert. Half of the restaurant was empty but the host told us it would be a 15 minute wait until we could be seated due to the dinner rush. It seemed like they just didn't want to seat us because we were getting dessert. Perhaps if you are only going for dessert, don't tell them that and maybe they will seat you. We left to go to Seasons instead, which actually turned into a really fun night downtown. --["Users/ymdean"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-05-23 20:12:06'' [[nbsp]]<br> + Our group of four had the lunch special. On arrival we were greeted and seated on the patio by Leonardo Fasulo. Our server was Valentina who told us she is majoring in International Relations at UCD. Valentia impressed us when she unfolded the cloth napkins and placed them on our laps. She was very familiar with the menu and made suggestions when asked. Valentina brought us complimentary prociutto-wrapped cantaloupe and warm bread and Salsa Verde before taking our order.<br> + The following is what we ordered along with letter grades given each item.<br> + House Salad: Mixed green salad with Parmesan cheese crisps, tomatoes and radishes. B+<br> + Soup of the Day: Cream of Asparagus with truffle oil. A<br> + Gnocchi alla Marinara topped with cheese. B+<br> + Spaghetti con Polpette with three meatballs. A-<br> + Past of the Day: Ravioli with asparagus in white cream sauce. A<br> + Dessert: Crepes filled with strawberry custard.

But weigh that against the restaurant as a whole: Consistently delicious food. Well thought out menu. Great lunch. Lovely patio. Even dog friendly. It is worth taking the time to find next time you are in the mood for fine dining. --["Users/pilotgeek"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2011-06-27 17:05:53'' [[nbsp]] Checked out the wine bar and tapas deal which is Tues-Sat from 5:30 to 7:30. The owner makes his own Sangria,which was very tasty. He also has a choice of 7 tapas for $5. What a bargain. Not your typical appetizers. Sooo, good. Nice options for vegetarians as well. They have long wooden tables to encourage folks to sit together. This will be a weekly trip for sure. Check it out because you can't beat the food and the atmosphere on the patio. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> + ------<br> + ''2012-08-16 20:39:35'' [[nbsp]] I live very near this restaurant. I believe this is the best restaurant in Davis. The very personal service they provide, the atmosphere, and the amazing food. It really is a little piece of Italy. --["Users/Sherri"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Osteria Fasulohttp://daviswiki.org/Osteria_Fasulo2012-09-05 21:50:03JabberWokky <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Osteria Fasulo<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 6: </td> <td> Line 5: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> --&gt;(actually, there's a ["/Talk" discussion here], but it's gotten all <span>drama-</span>y)&lt;-- </td> <td> <span>+</span> --&gt;(actually, there's a ["/Talk" discussion here], but it's gotten all <span>sill</span>y)&lt;-- </td> </tr> </table> </div> Osteria Fasulohttp://daviswiki.org/Osteria_Fasulo2012-09-05 21:49:34JabberWokkyKeep it lighthearted. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Osteria Fasulo<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 2: </td> <td> Line 2: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- '''Osteria Fasulo''' is a ["restaurant"].

It's pretty pricey for the Davis dining scene. Appetizers are $14-$25, salads are $10-$25. Primi (first course -- can also be ordered alone as main course) is $16-$25 and secondi (second course -- can also be ordered alone as main course) is $25-$35, and desserts are $8-$12. Note that these prices are for the dinner menu; lunch is less. Of course, any wine you order can add to your bill ''substantially''.<br> - <br> - Entrees are traditional Italian: their secondi dishes are meat-centered. The food is presented attractively on large plates rather than just being functionally served. The dishes have the usual olive oil, eggplant, and tomatoes one would expect of a Mediterranean restaurant.<br> - <br> - Osteria Fasulo's menu changes seasonally. In the past, the menu items tended to be more expensive, and it wouldn't have been unusual for some customers to pay $100 or more for dinner if they were inclined to splurge. The most expensive dish was $52 and appeared on the autumn menu of 2009. It was a pan-seared veal chop top with foie gras and black truffles ragout, served on a bed of fresh arugula. But since no one was ordering that dish at that price, the item was scrapped from the menu and all other items' prices were re-calibrated, albeit temporarily, to lure some business.<br> - <br> - Fasula's Osteria is located in ["Village Homes"], the only business to be so situated. There is an incredibly small interior and, in good weather, a large outdoor patio. They pick many of the vegetables from their own garden, which is generally quite colorful with ["Morning Glory"] and other plants. The menu is posted outside, next to the door. If you want to impress a date, or if your other is paying, this is the place to go. Keep in mind that this place is for those with a fat wallet, so if you or your other thinks ["McDonald's"] is pricey, someone is in for a shock.<br> - <br> - "Osteria Fasulo" means a restaurant run by a Fasula, like "Joe's Restaurant" in English, run by a Joe. The same owner opened another restaurant, Il Posto ("The Place"), in downtown ["Sacramento"] in August ["2005"], which closed early in ["2006"].<br> - <br> - It is trying very hard to be in the same league as Bibas in ["Sacramento"] in terms of the quality of the food, although it is considerably higher priced when one takes into account that the servings at Osteria Fasulo are much, much smaller than those at Bibas. The good part is that, unlike Bibas where one needs a reservation, here you can always show up in shorts and flip-flops and tables are usually available. Of course, you also have to leave town for Bibas, both physically, and (given the laid back nature and no reservations needed) culturally. Plus, Fasula's Osteria has colorful dog bowls, something Bibas doesn't have (shame on Bibas!).<br> - <br> - <br> - Osteria Fasulo won the ["2008"] Souperbowl with their Roasted ["tomatoes" Tomato] Soup (see the recipe below).

It’s time to move from summer’s light, refreshing dishes to more substantial, nourishing meals that will keep you warm through the winter. Here are some of the region’s coziest restaurants, experts at dishing out food that will make you feel all toasty inside—even when it’s cold outside.Osteria Fasulo<br> - Davis’ Osteria Fasulo is one of the most romantic restaurants in the region. Situated on the edge of a fecund community vegetable garden, it has a stunning outdoor courtyard bordered by trellised grapevines and punctuated by leafy trees strung with tiny lights. Indoors, the charming dining room features scarlet walls hung with striking artwork painted by owner Leonardo Fasulo and old black-and-white photographs of the Fasulo family. The menu is Italian, and you can’t go wrong with pasta, especially the handmade raviolis, with their silky exteriors and flavorful stuffings. It’s clear Leonardo Fasulo loves seafood, which pops up in his rich lasagna di mare (housemade pasta layered with seafood and béchamel sauce) and his hearty cioppino. The pesce del giorno (fish of the day) is also a good bet. On a recent visit, I tried the pan-roasted sea bass served on fabulous white beans. The restaurant also offers a nice selection of Italian wines.

And they haven't yet been picketed by P.E.T.A? Huh... Well if I ever get a date (like that's gonna happen anytime soon! HAH!!!), this'll be the place I'd pick. Better start saving now, I suppose. --["Users/thelonepiper555"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-02-05 09:41:04'' [[nbsp]] Osteria Fasulo is one of our standards for recruitment dinners. It is one of the best places to eat in Davis and you shouldn't trust any disrespectful reviews. But don't come here expecting to save either time or money. If your standard is a one-hour dinner for $25, then your expectations will put you in the mood to find fault with everything.<br> - <br> - The last time that I was here, I had lobster ravioli and the chocolate creme brulee dessert. The ravioli was an A and the creme brulee was an A+. Is it worth it? Sometimes it is. The one big problem is that sometimes the dinner is too slow, even for the patient. If they could reduce the wait on busy nights, then the food would in my view justify the high prices.<br> - --["Users/GregKuperberg"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-08 22:40:46'' [[nbsp]] I went to Osteria Fasulo tonight for the first time. We were promptly seated (with reservations) and served a complimentary 1oz glass of prosecco. I ordered the carpaccio and the tenderloin (rare). My guests ordered the gnocchi. We shared a bottle of prosecco. Our final bill with tip was $156. Most of the food was great. The portions were much too small for my friend and I (we are weightlifters). The carpaccio had a very high moisture content. Carpaccio needs to be prepared from beef that has been aged (where the moisture content is decreased by evaporation/sublimation). This meat was not aged (unaged beef is pink, not deep red) and therefore the carpaccio was flavorless. The sauce with the carpaccio was also very flavorless. The carpaccio was not stuffed with lobster, I guess they changed the menu or something. The filet was served with two potato wedges and green beans. The green beans were excellent. I didn't get a chance to try the potatoes; my girlfriend snatched them away from me. The filet was not rare, it was medium/medium rare. I also noticed that the filet was not served as a steak, it was served in pieces. The gnocchi looked good, but there were only about 10 pieces in the dish. My guest was served a free dessert item for his birthday, and my girlfriend and I ordered a cannoli which was terrific. I won't be eating at this restaurant again, but not because the food and service weren't excellent, but because my appetite is far too robust for these portions. The bottom line? A lot of the food was great, but the carpaccio was completely unacceptable. --["Users/JackRoehrig"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-03-17 10:58:22'' [[nbsp]] My wife and I have eaten here a number of times for dinner over the years its been open. It is always quite a treat. Recently we went for a quick lunch and found that to be an excellent experience as well. If you want excellent food, and a good atmosphere, give them a try. Lunch time is great, as their menu is still quite good, but much easier on the wallet. --["Users/Aaron.Curtin"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-05-06 09:11:25'' [[nbsp]] My wife and I have been here numerous times over the past four or five years and while we usually spend more than we expected, we always leave feeling that it was worth it. We ate dinner here last Saturday night and though no one thing was perfect, the combination of the lovely seating out on the patio, the great food, the friendly staff, and the owner's attentiveness made it a perfect evening. Well worth the expense for us. --["Users/kieransdad"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-06-06 08:52:40'' [[nbsp]] This is a special dining experience that I always enjoy. The food is always wonderful. I recently went with a group of friends for dinner. I had the raviolois (yum) and the L’Insalata di Mare (extra yum). But, what makes this special is the atmosphere and the staff. We have always had great service and Leanardo always comes by to chat and enhance the experience. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-09-13 17:44:06'' [[nbsp]] My review of this restaurant is long overdue, and so I cannot give specifics. Here's the impression that lingers: a relaxed meal on a lovely patio with our dog curled at our feet, slowly working our way through several courses of delectable food, followed by a stroll on the greenbelt. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion or even just a special treat. --["Users/CovertProfessor"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2008-10-26 15:23:18'' [[nbsp]] I came here with a friend and my Godfather, who (thankfully) paid for the dinner. We ordered pasta and soup to start and each of us had entrees after. I ordered the salmon, my Godfather the filet mignon, and my friend the lobster/spinach/cheese ravioli. It was really windy, so we decided to eat inside.<br> - <br> - It's expensive, especially on a college budget. For a special occassion or a treat, it's a pretty good choice. Their gnocchi is prepared differently than what you normally see (almost baked looking?), but the sauce is deliciously cheesy and the browning adds a satisfying crunch. The salmon was cooked perfectly, with a nice delicate sauce and tasty asparagus to go with it. The ravioli had a great, also cheesy taste, but didn't taste very much of lobster. My godfather especially requested that the filet mignon be cooked cut in half, and it came out delicious. The corn chowder soup was watery and not very tasty.<br> - <br> - The service was great here. We wanted a larger amount of gnocchi to start than they offer in a regular order, but we didn't want to order double. They were willing to negociate "an order and a half" with us, but really they gave us about double the amount anyways. Also, when the waitor saw that we didn't like our soup, he offered to replace it with something else, on the house. Very professional. --["Users/BrandonWong"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-01-16 12:14:28'' [[nbsp]] Our absolute favorite upscale restaurant in Davis, and we've tried them all.<br> - <br> - Patio setting is casual but lovely on a summer evening, with a very Tuscan feel to it. Inside is more formal. And not downtown = no parking nightmares!<br> - <br> - Dress code outside is super casual; Village Homers are comfortable showing up in khaki shorts.<br> - <br> - Servers are highly knowledgeable and helpful, friendly but not overbearing.<br> - <br> - Prices are definitely up there, but it's a great splurge. Our server suggested coming just for dessert and a glass of wine to enjoy the setting. For the money, I would rather spend it here than at hushed, formal Seasons; hit-or-miss Mustard Seed; or Soga's with its bar scene.<br> - <br> - Portions are not huge, but the food is rich, filling and seasonal. We've never been disappointed with a selection, only with the hefty price tag.<br> - --["Users/DavisKid84"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-03-01 20:16:44'' [[nbsp]] When I heard the best restaurant in Davis had a new lunch special, I knew finally, it was time. Never having been able to afford this restaurant before, I was very excited to experience it such good food. I was not disappointed. For $20 you get soup or salad, a pasta entree, a dessert AND a glass of wine. Three courses for $20... Since I knew they had recently won the local Souper Bowl soup competition, I ordered that of course. I had the homemade spinach pasta (divine!) and my date had the pesto linguine with the most fresh, crispy vegetables you could imagine. Our server was very friendly and knowledgible. I was glad I didn't have plans after lunch because I would have been late. Other than that I was happy with the value I got and I WILL come back for dinner. On my next special occasion. --["Users/TCSmith"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-09-08 13:06:06'' [[nbsp]] I can't believe it took me 8 years in the area to come here! We went here last weekend for my birthday dinner and I was not disappointed. We had the tomato mozarella salad, halibut, and the bolognese lasanga, followed by tiramisu. Everything was excellent and I actually appreciated a place that had amazing food without a stuffy environment. The outside dining is especially casual. My only complaint was that I didn't see any wines by the glass (nor did I ask), but just ordered a whole bottle instead. Anyone know their corkage fee? They were out of the wine we ordered, so we had to get a more expensive variety, but I could definietly see the value of BYOW if their corkage is reasonable. I'd highly recommend Osteria Fasulo. --["Users/AmLin"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2009-11-18 22:44:14'' [[nbsp]] I went here for a birthday dinner with my boyfriend and his parents, and it was by far the tastiest meal I've had in Davis. The dishes we had included the frog legs (with polenta and marinara), gnocchi (pan-fried, has amazing texture), risotto, vegeterian dish (red pepper stuffed with magic), fish dish (pistachio-encrusted salmon), carpaccio, filet mignon, cannoli, and tiramisu. The textures and presentation of the foods was just soo perfect. The place has a beautiful patio and cozy indoor area, and very pleasant service. For wines &lt;$50, they offer wine by the glass. Though we came here for the first time as a special occasion, I'm definitely excited to come back for the (cheaper) lunch or on another occasion. --["Users/lingawonga"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-01-21 21:02:27'' [[nbsp]] I've never dine here, but one night I was craving for crème brulée and called and ask them whether they do a take out. They said yes, but told me to "bring the container back" and I was like "huh?" Turned out the crème brulée was baked in the ramekin (duh, of course). They were so nice about it when I brought it back the next day. Only in a small town! --["Users/LeeY"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-05-11 16:54:44'' [[nbsp]] Went there last Thursday. So good. Our party had the lobster and beef carpaccio and the baked oysters for starters. Really good. The dinner was delicious. This truly is the best spot to have dinner in Davis. We sat outside in the patio and Leanardo stopped by and chatted with us, which made the evening even better. It is true that this is not an inexpensive place to eat. It is, however, a wonderful treat. I need to go there more. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-06-24 09:39:06'' [[nbsp]] We went here last night for our anniversary dinner. Scallops, risotto and chicken dish were fabulous as usual, but we did have one low moment. A fellow courtyard diner brought her very well-behaved lab to accompany her. The chef came out and made her tie him up. Yeah, I get it, but she was so well-behaved! On a side note, I found out they put bread in their parsley-olive oil dipping sauce, so gluten free eaters beware. --["Users/AmLin"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-07-12 02:54:01'' [[nbsp]] This is definitely a dog-friendly joint. We went there a couple of weeks back and ate on their patio. There were only two other couples eating there and a lone woman who had a nice white lab with her. As soon as our dinner arrived, the lab was there, drooling and looking for food. It was a nice dog, but the food cost an arm and a leg and came in lilliputian quantities that it was hard for us to share with the dog. We spent the evening holding our forks in one hand and patting the dog with the other. It's now hard to even remember what we ate, since the dog became the center of our attention. I have a suggestion for the Fasulo owners: cut the menu prices by 50% and double the quantity of food you serve, and also add a dog food menu alongside the regular menu. I'll bet you'll double your clientele very quickly, especially from the sparse lot that we found there when we ate there, with dog owners flocking to your patio. The patio, by the way, is quite pleasant, and ideally suited to a dog-friendly atmosphere. --["Users/JohnBB"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2010-08-23 09:26:12'' [[nbsp]] The Tuesday night wine tasting with appetizers is such a perfect way to enjoy an evening. The patio is the best outdoor dining in Davis. The service is wonderful and the appetizers are free with a purchase of a glass of wine. They also have a light meal menu that goes well if want a little more than the appetizers. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-04-28 11:45:34'' [[nbsp]] On a basic hit-or-miss scale, maybe last night, this restaurant was serving a miss. My date and I first started with the Carpaccio: it was saturated in olive oil, delimiting the flavor of the lobster and cutlets. Next the soup, a tomato bisque, which we pleasantly enjoyed (delicious) and the highlight of the meal. For primi, we had the special, ratatouille risotto, which was full of flavor but the arborio was under cooked. For our main course, she ordered a ricotta-filled ravioli, tasty at first but became overpowering by the end; I requested the cioppino, which had a excellent base, shrimp, and lobster, but the mussels, clams, and scallops were over cooked and mussels specifically were not fresh (having the shelfed, overly fishey after taste). The wine paring was right on (I forget the specifics of the wine but that is a good thing).<br> - <br> - The reason it was a miss, for the $100 price point and clientele they are attempting to bring in (foodies), I feel everything needed to be dead on. I could understand if the house was booked, but it was half full last night, so that kitchen was not stretched and should have been able to get everything at least par. A million points for presentation, but it was simply lacking consistency and the flavor. Maybe I would be less harsh if the dinner did not come out to ~$160; at that price, I was just expecting more.<br> - <br> - Okay for Davis, sub-standard for Bay Area Cuisine. --["Users/ebespiritu"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-05-16 13:16:20'' [[nbsp]] I went with my boyfriend recently on a Saturday night at around 8pm for dessert. Half of the restaurant was empty but the host told us it would be a 15 minute wait until we could be seated due to the dinner rush. It seemed like they just didn't want to seat us because we were getting dessert. Perhaps if you are only going for dessert, don't tell them that and maybe they will seat you. We left to go to Seasons instead, which actually turned into a really fun night downtown. --["Users/ymdean"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-05-23 20:12:06'' [[nbsp]]<br> - Our group of four had the lunch special. On arrival we were greeted and seated on the patio by Leonardo Fasulo. Our server was Valentina who told us she is majoring in International Relations at UCD. Valentia impressed us when she unfolded the cloth napkins and placed them on our laps. She was very familiar with the menu and made suggestions when asked. Valentina brought us complimentary prociutto-wrapped cantaloupe and warm bread and Salsa Verde before taking our order.<br> - The following is what we ordered along with letter grades given each item.<br> - House Salad: Mixed green salad with Parmesan cheese crisps, tomatoes and radishes. B+<br> - Soup of the Day: Cream of Asparagus with truffle oil. A<br> - Gnocchi alla Marinara topped with cheese. B+<br> - Spaghetti con Polpette with three meatballs. A-<br> - Past of the Day: Ravioli with asparagus in white cream sauce. A<br> - Dessert: Crepes filled with strawberry custard.

But weigh that against the restaurant as a whole: Consistently delicious food. Well thought out menu. Great lunch. Lovely patio. Even dog friendly. It is worth taking the time to find next time you are in the mood for fine dining. --["Users/pilotgeek"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2011-06-27 17:05:53'' [[nbsp]] Checked out the wine bar and tapas deal which is Tues-Sat from 5:30 to 7:30. The owner makes his own Sangria,which was very tasty. He also has a choice of 7 tapas for $5. What a bargain. Not your typical appetizers. Sooo, good. Nice options for vegetarians as well. They have long wooden tables to encourage folks to sit together. This will be a weekly trip for sure. Check it out because you can't beat the food and the atmosphere on the patio. --["Users/LokiAbbi"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2012-08-16 20:39:35'' [[nbsp]] I live very near this restaurant.
