Asti like we love it!
We visit the ASTI on every visit to the gas light district. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable.

The food was very good, the service was mixed, the waiter was good, but his helper gave dishes to the wrong party and brought the wrong dessert to the table. The Carbanera was excellent. The salads were likewise excellent and the minestroni soup one of the better ones served in an Italian restaurant. There is a "special" menu featuring unique dishes such as Branzino. But, there are no prices and the waiter didn't tell the pricing, so ordering the Branzino and getting the bill for $50 made it one of the most expensive around and though good, overpriced. This is a restaurant worth going back to, but make sure to ask on unpriced items and that the waiter understands who is ordering what. Yes, it is a place to recommend.

A memorable evening! Our reservation was honored promptly, and we were given a lovely table by the window. Service was very professional--attentive without being intrusive. The food was great! Salads were fresh and beautifully presented, soups hearty and hot. The salmon, sea bass and lobster were perfectly cooked, as was the veal chop. Would recommend highly!

Top Shelf Rating by Tough NYC Criti
I have frequently on business trips to SanDiego entertained my clients and friends here with nothing but stella results. Not only do I return, but my clients and friends have made this a must have in San Diego.
Look I am from NYC and I am a tough cookie to impress and this spot is in my top ten. Also you must ask for Tony although I have had others at our service who have done a teriffic job at making sure our dinner experience is top shelf

Delicious Italian restaurant and very nice, professional staff. Keep some space for the dessert: they all looked excellent!

Great for large parties!
We came here for dinner for a group of 14 people. From booking through open table to paying the bill, it was a flawless experience. Extremely easy to book through open table, which was a huge relief for a large party. The service was great. The food was spectacular. Everyone was pleased with their dishes. I had the lobster fettuccine special and there was so much seafood! I would definitely recommend this place for a large group. Asti knows how to take care of you!

Ate here for lunch, food was excellent as was everything else. In the heart of the gaslight so can get quite crowded in the evenings. Still worth the venture.

Fantastic Italian Ristorante !
Great menu, food and service. They've been here 20 years for a reason. A great gem in the Gaslamp. HIGHLY recommend for italian foodies.

This is a fantastic restaurant! I went here on a recommendation from the hotel staff for my 40th birthday dinner. Excellent food & wine, along with very friendly staff. I went with a girlfriend and we sat in the outside area, which is great for people watching & random conversations with people.
I would highly recommend!
PS - the restaurant never actually got my reservation from Open Table but set a table for us in less than a minute.

Intimate restaurant, great food!
Loved Asti....highly recommend sitting at one of the outside tables. The caprese appetizer with proscuitto is a must, and the creme brulee dessert was fantastic as well. It was hard to decide what to order as the menu was very extensive and had plenty of options for everyone. Service was attentive but not to the point of being intrusive. Will definitely be back!

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Asti's on Friday night. Comic-con was going on so the Gaslamp district was extremely crowded. Our waiter was very helpful in recommending several dishes which were great. My husband had the seabass and I had a prawn and scallop dish which was excellent. All in all it was a very enjoyable dinner.

The lamb shank was incredible and the risotto was quite flavorful. My wife had the seafood risotto and it was equally delicious.

One more beautiful evening at Asti!
Asti is our #1 favorite restaurant in San Diego. Especially love being able to dine outside on the street side patio. The waiters, staff and management are outstanding across the board...many of them remember you even after a year!

San Diego in the Heart of the City
While visiting San Diego a friend of mine insisted that we eat at Asti since it was the best seafood dish she had. The seafood dish was delicious. We sat down at the right time because the server only had to left of those special dishes. The server was kind and brought us extra pesto sauce - it was so good we wanted more.

Evening Specials No Published Price
Enjoyed our meal at Asti on a Saturday night. The restaurant was working from a "paper" reservation list when we arrived and our reservation was not on it. Took about 5 minutes to prepare a table for 2 inside. We each had a glass of Chianti Reserva and a salad to start. Entree portions were very good and huge.... took home at least half. Service was excellent except for the waiter who sat down on the bench seat next to us to talk to some "regulars" who happened to be seated next to us...no acknowledgment or asking if we minded his intrusion. There are no published prices on the specials menu.....ask if you are concerned. From our experience the specials were higher than the "regular" menu prices. Second visit to Asti.....we would return.

Great food, great service, a bit of authentic Italy in San Diego. Highly recommend the lamb chops which were delicious and cooked to perfection! The swordfish dish was also fantastic. Wonderful evening!
