Chef Oliver Ridgeway showcases the pristine ingredients of the surrounding region with its bold design, bustling bar scene, and prime private dining facilities. Camden is comfortable yet elevated. We are located just a few blocks from the Capitol and Convention Center and just steps from the Golden 1 Center. This is the perfect place to dine pre-show or concert.

Had family visiting for Davis Graduation weekend and tried to stay in close proximity to Golden One. After some research, made decision to visit Spit and Larder as it was unique in its offering. Showed up a bit early hoping to be able to get seated as we had just had an exhausting long day from graduation ceremony. After a bit of a wait, we were seated and our waitress, Brooke, came around promptly and introduced herself and gathered our drink orders while she put our celebratory champagne on ice. She explained specials for the day and took our appetizer orders which came out promptly. Appetizers were preceded by the tasty popovers which were a welcome change from usual bread offerings at most restaurants. We enjoyed the open kitchen concept and observing the cooks/chef apply their ware. All of our food came promptly and was well timed for each course. Food was ideal temperature and tasty and there were no complaints from our party. We sampled much of the menu for variety and universally the popover (Yorkshire Pudding), sausage roll with English mustard and curry ketchup, pasta, salmon, lamb shank, and meat pie were a hit. We were much too satiated to attempt dessert at this point. Overall we had a great experience with fantastic service and food and plan to return again if we are in the area. ...the only detractor was when we attempted calling to request an earlier seating, we were informed there was no availability only to arrive a little early to a dining room that was not nearly at capacity with many open tables; a bit distasteful to start our meal.

Our family had one of the most incredible experiences at Osteria Fasulo. For many of us it was one of the best meals they have ever had. The food was fresh and creative and the service was incredible. This is a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Davis and made it a very special occasion.
