    My husband took me to Asti D'Italia the other night for my birthday dinner. We have seen this restaurant forever but never taken the time to try it - can't believe we missed out for so long!! We were there during the Broncos game, so it was empty....which was nice. The service was very attentive, the food was amazing! From the risotto appetizer to the panacotta for dessert, we truly enjoyed each course!! Will definitely return!!

    My husband and I discovered Asti D'Italia through Groupon. Seemed a little out of place next to the Penney's at the Orchard Mall, but was a pleasant surprise. While the food was excellent, it was pricey for what you get; 20.00 dollars for the Hazelnut crusted Mahi Mahi which was about 4 ounces of fish. Soup or Salad are not included and there was no bread. The Chicken Parmigiano at 21.00 was a little healthier portion and was delicious. Dessert was also good, but a scoop of gelato the size of a golf ball was 7.00. However, the service was amazing as was the ambience of the restaurant. May go back for lunch which fits into my budget a little more as their Golden Beet salad was amazing.

  • Too much activity near kitchen
    Russ
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    We were seated quickly with our reservation, our server arrived quickly, but 2 others stopped by before we figured out who our server was. He was a few weeks in, so his timing wasn't the best, but he was very pleasant and will learn. The wine list was good, beer list poor (5 selections!) and the menu was very nice. Reasonably priced, all. The food was very good. My main warning is to tell people to not be seated near the kitchen entrance. There was way too much activity to concentrate on being social with your table mates.

    Wait staff makes you feel that you are in for a very special dining experience. I love having a bottle of water at the table, yet the waiter pays close attention to your water glass and keeps it filled. Special touch. The food was delicious. Meatballs so light and tender.

    I only came across this restaurant recently, when I was bringing my son to the Orchard for a haircut at another establishment. My husband and I had no idea what to expect when I made a dinner reservation for our anniversary dinner, but we were pleasantly surprised. The interior was very tastefully decorated, and the food was amazing. Even my husband, and Italian-American who is quite picky about his Italian food, enjoyed it very much. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and we will definitely be returning in the near future.

  • Kind of Bizarre
    FuuTheFoodie
    Dined on 6/29/2014
    The host seemed kind and friendly. I ordered the crab cakes, and they were very salty. My boyfriend ordered Chicken Marsala. His food was lukewarm, the chicken was tough and the vegetables were also salty. I got the Potato Gnocchi with Duck Confit and goat cheese. The cheese was clearly not goat cheese. It was hard and melted in stretchy strings. When I asked the host about it, he stubbornly claimed that this stretchy melty mess was indeed goat cheese. He implied that we did not know what goat cheese tasted like. He could have looked at the plate to see that the cheese was clearly not goat cheese. That change affected the taste of the dish and the blind denial was bizarre...needless to say, the experience left a bad taste in our mouths.

    In general Asti D'Italia is a good restaurant. My guests and I enjoyed or meal. One said the Flank Steak was very good. My Chicken Marsala had a good flavor and the Chicken was still moist. My complaint was the Chicken Breast was cut poorly with one edge think and the other very thin. I would guess that about 1/4 of the breast was to dry for me to eat. I said something about it to the waiter. He apologized but did nothing about it. If I wasn't with company I would have asked for the manager

    Since discovering Asti D'Italia last year, we've fallen in love with their food. They specialize in risotto, and indeed they seem to have a great talent for that dish. While my wife enjoyed the risotto of the day, I tried the gnocchi appetizer and the shrimp capellini. The gnocchi were perfectly prepared with a garlicky tomato sauce and a dollop of pesto. The shrimp dish was surprisingly accented with slices of chili pepper and a not-too-heavy creamy sauce. We finished off the evening with the Temptation dessert, an amazing creation from Indulge Bakery in Lafayette - one that is exclusive to Asti D'Italia. It's always been the food that brings us back to Asti D'Italia, so I'm pleased to note that the service finally seems to be improving.

    I was disappointed in the flank steak. It was tough and stringy. It did not have the Italian flavor I was expecting and my husbands seafood dish did not have an Italian flavor either. Am I being picky? Yes, of course. For the price we paid I expected more.

    Returned to Asti with a Groupon. Really enjoyed the overall experience. Honestly only complaint was the way the Groupon was explained to us. We were informed to order 2 salads, 2 entrees, 2 desserts. The thing they do not make clear is that anything over $68 (value of Groupon) you have to pay for. We could of easily passed on a dessert (which we never splurge in due to the calories) which made us go $13.00 over. Perhaps they should say: "This Groupon is worth $68.00, order whatever you want and pay the difference"

    It is rare these days to find a quiet restaurant where you can actually visit with a friend without raising your voice. The food and wine were excellent! We chose the special for that evening, the risotto, salmon and asparagus. Absolutely delicious!! Our waiter was friendly and served us with a smile. This place is a gem and we will definitely be going back soon.

    Staff were very attentive and polite. Atmosphere was cozy and well-done with nice lighting and moderate noise. Food was great---about what you would expect for the price. Service a touch slow---took about 40 minutes for our main course. Pretty warm inside, about 76-78 degrees, but that's my only real complaint.

    This was our 2nd visit to the restuarant. The service and food were good. The atmosphere is nice. We've always had good meals here. The only problem this time was that 2 of our dining companions complained that their chicken was a bit "rubbery" and the waiter had no response. We were not asking for the meals to be comped but some sort of response from the waiter.

    The food at Asti D' Italia was incredible. The Braised Beef Risotto may be the best bite of food I've had in the past year. It was amazing. Love the wine selection too. Service was acceptable but I wasn't blown away. My only complaints are with the ala carte pricing, and that they are stingy with the bread.

    We were stunned that they had an extremely limited beer selection. We realize it is an Italian restaurant but my husband prefers beer to wine. food was flavorful but service was not stellar. We were brought one carafe of water the entire evening for four diners. We had a lengthy dinner as we were visiting with friends. After our bill was paid, no one checked on us.

    We were surprised when we arrived to see the owner at the front desk texting on his cell phone. We decided to have a glass of wine in the bar before dinner and both the bartender and a server were also texting on their cell phones. When we were ready to order a second glass of wine in the bar the bartender was hosting so we waited and waited. A server came behind the bar to use his cell phone that was charging under the counter and did not even acknowledge us. We moved to the dining room where we received horrible service because our server disappeared through the entire 3 course meal. He did not even do a quality check. Food was decent, bus boys were excellent. Would not return for the price, lack of service and just decent food.

    Reviews that we read before our dinner at d'Asti Italia made us aware that we were in for a more-than-typical experience. There are gems among the many, new 'marketplace' or 'town center' settings to be found today, and this would definitely be one of them. I count my duck confit with potato gnocchi as second (to a cafe in Paris) on my all-time list of duck dishes and a golden beet salad (though just a tad lacking in terms of beets) as very good...the vanilla bean vinaigrette excellent . Service was very good, and David's advice on entrees was spot on.
