I haven't been back in a little while, but when I first moved to Davis a little over a year ago, Pasta Q was still relatively new, and most of the waiters were actually Italian. There is a good selection of pastas (of course), as well as daily specials. There are always wines by the glass, which I appreciate, and the wait staff is happy to recommend something. Also, corkage (if you wish to bring your own bottle) is reasonable. On warm evenings, the patio is a great place to dine and relax.
