Diner Reviews
  • "Make a reservation and enjoy a wonderful meal at this great little place in Hyde Park. My husband and I were looking for a place to have dinner with his mother and our college daughter on a Friday night. We were able to make a 6:30 reservation ( 7:30 was also available) On that same day. The place was full when we arrived but our table was waiting for us. Our waiter was pleasant and fun and very efficient and my salmon was delicious! It has a respectable wine list and were given a small bite of smoked salmon appetizer as soon as we sat down. We were pleasantly full so we skipped dessert but it was a very enjoyable dining experience!"

We arrived to a warm welcome and a lovely table. Service was good and food was absolutely delicious. It was a lovely evening."

  • "We tried the roasted beet on pumkin pesto and a corn fritter with crab meat on top with served with thinly sliced Serrano peppers and a lemon aioli. Both starters were excellent!! I highly recommend either, or both ;-) I had a crab stuffed ravioli (one side of each ravioli was regular pasta, the other was said ink) as my entree. It was delightful. My wife had a eggplant, prosciutto, arugula, roasted onion pizza as entrees. Her pizza was very flavorful. She has a strong preference for thin crusted pizza. Hers was medium-thick. We had a nice reserve chianti with dinner and finished with the nightly special dessert- a small roasted coconut cake with a blueberry balsamic reduction sauce, served with a corn and bourbon gelato...oh my!!!"

  • "We have been coming to Asti for a long time. We were pleased to find that on this visit, the service and atmosphere was just as wonderful as ever. My husband ordered a pizza, the first we have had there, and it was just fabulous. I would definitely recommend it. The ravioli dish with crab which I got was very well prepared, although not as much to my liking as it was more lemony than I expected (not my favorite flavor!). But, it was hot and nicely done, probably just not my best choice for the evening. The waitress recommended a wine that was just right, and the service was impeccable. Oh, and, the complimentary bread is just divine!"

  • "We have eaten here several times and it is always excellent food. The menu is interesting and very good for some of us, who are vegetarians! Our waiter was insightful, knowledgeable, just friendly enough without being intrusive. In other words great. We will definitely be back. We our fortunate this restaurant is in Austin."

  • "The four of each had a different and wonderfully prepared meal. The owner, also one of the cooks, made several trips by to make sure everything was to our satisfaction (he delivered the salads and such himself). Wine recommendations with the different courses matched perfectly. This has now become one of our top restaurants to visit. Relaxing atmosphere."

  • "Was my wife's birthday, group of 6 was in a great mood, waiter was not very friendly, I'm not saying the service was terrible, but the attitude and lack of a good attitude from the waiter was a turn-off. It wouldn't keep us from returning, just hope the wait staff is better."

  • "We shared the calamari small plate (not small at all!) and the bucatini, and both were delicious! The atmosphere is casual, but if you want a fancier feel, try to sit towards the wine bottles in the back of the restaurant."

  • "Went with a party of 8 for my birthday. The table ordered tons of appetizers and all were delicious, including the stuffed mushrooms, calamari, and mussels. Entrees were outstanding as well -everything from pizza to linguine and clams. All the desserts were great. I had the dark chocolate cannoli with chocolate mousse and tried the beignets and tiramisu. Service was also attentive, professional, and friendly. Really we all had a fantastic time and I'm looking forward to coming back soon."

  • "A friend and I went for a long lunch and conversation ASTI is perfect for both. The server was quite helpful with wine selections and let us take our time as we talked. The food was outstanding, and the noise lever was perfect for a pleasant conversation. Great place!"

  • "We hadn't been to Asti in about a year. After a great dining experience, we're wondering why. Asti will definitely be back in our rotation! Cold soup was different & delicious, Chicken Saltimbocca was good, though the chicken broth sauce was a tad on the salty side. Clams w/ linguini & mixed seafood (clams, shrimp & something else) over risotto was good to the last bite - dining companions were very pleased with both dishes. Wine from Montepulciano was note-worthy. Service was attentive without being obnoxious. They accomodated us by seating us in the corner, where it is quieter, which we greatly appreciated."

  • "I forget how small and intimate this seems. The wait staff is great, particularly a woman whose name I did not catch. Enthusiastic, friendly, not intrusive. Food: this is why we were there! Arancini (sp?), the street food of southern Italy brought to a level of art. Trout, perfectly grilled, with potatoes that-- well, I don't know how they prepared them, but I would take a plate of only the potatoes, and be quite happy. Crab ravioli was delicious and did not scrimp on the named ingredient. Finally, save room for dessert. Best espresso I've had in a long time. And chocolate cannoli... Take the cannoli, you know the rest!"

  • "I have dined at ASTI twice, on special occasions with my wife. The first one was a very memorable experience, and we had to go back. The food was outstanding, our waiter was very helpful, talkative and friendly. The prices are a little high (for us personally), but you get what you pay for and you taste that with the first bite. It is worth the price for me, so I will always keep this place in mind for special date nights. Great appetizers, great desserts, and great entrees."

  • "Arrived on time and table was ready. Waiter was backed up and said it would be a while to take drink orders. Food order was taken late even though we said we wanted to order when we received our drinks. The food order got mixed up with someone else's but they did make it right. It took a lot longer than we expected due to the wait and the mistakes in the kitchen or by the server."

  • "We waited 10 min to be greeted, another 5 to get water and bread. Finally ordered. Food was lackluster. Asked to do a birthday dessert and they completely forgot."

  • "The food was such a disappointment! We have loved Asti for sometime but on our last visit we changed our opinion of the place and will probably never go back. The food was boring and lacked creativity. My chicken was dry and tasteless and my husbands dish tasted like an expensive cafeteria special. On previous visits, this restaurant used fresh produce from local growers and the entrees were as delicious as food I've had in Italy or France. What happened to this restaurant! The wait staff was great and very pleasant but that didnt make up for the boring food."

  • "This seemed close to downtown but it was not so my warning would be that it was very difficult to get a late night cab, we waited over an hour and ended up taking the bus back downtown to our hotel. The hostess was great keeping us up to date on cab status during that time even though they were closed. The cheese platter had some great cheeses, wines were very reasonable. I had the risotto which was tasty and a new twist having a farm fresh egg on top. The table enjoyed the beignets, goat cheese gelato was not good though."

  • "Sadly, this came down to simple disappointment. This is billed by many as the top Italian restaurant in Austin. The food was mostly underwhelming. The antipasti had some tasty salami, but was mostly forgettable. We ordered two pastas -- Lingquini and clams and Amattriciana. The clam sauce was good but more of a broth that didn't have much of that rich clam taste you want. The Amattriciana was a soupy, chunky mess. It tasted too sweet and big chunks of carrots seemed out-of-place in what should be a simple sauce. Also, service was spotty. Our order was messed up in the kitchen, which looked confused the entire time we were there. The staff hardly mentioned the mistake but did give us a discount on the bill."

  • "I was at Asti with my 9 yr old daughter on a daddy-daughter date & had an overall great experience. The service was fantastic as well as the ambiance. I was a little disappointed that the menu really didn't have any offerings from the restaurants namesake area in Italy. It's a good menu, but it's also a menu typical of most Italian restaurants in Austin. I was also disappointed that the spaghetti in my dish wasn't homemade."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food all had amazing taste. However, except for the desserts, we found the portions skimpy. The special that night was a lemon risotto with grilled scallops - I expected more than 3 scallops. Likewise, the capellini with shrimp had only three shrimp."

Seems like a contemporary N.Y. kind of restaurant, not pricey, nice service, great atmosphere, carrot soup divine, salmon perfectly cooked with tasty veggies and the dessert (affogato - expresso with vanilla ice cream and warm sugared beignets to dip) Need I say more! We will be back on a regular basis. Jane H"
