My husband Phil and I drove to Davis recently for dinner at Osteria Fasulo. We had a lovely table outdoors under the grape arbor, overlooking an extensive vegetable garden.
Two items on the Osteria Fasulo menu were listed as specifically vegan, so I ordered both. I started with this beautiful salad, the L'Insalata d'Avocado ed Arance, consisting of avocado, oranges, and heirloom tomatoes, served on a bed of Romaine and tossed with a mustard and extra virgin olive oil dressing. It was perfect.
For my entrée, I had the Risotto Primavera, a mixture of creamy Arborio rice and seasonal vegetables, including zucchini, red bell pepper, and carrots. It was very good too, considering that the salad was a very hard act for it to follow.
Both of these items are on the menu for both lunch and dinner.
