    This was our first time at Asti D'Italia and it was ok. The appetizer (gnocchi) had a whopping 5 pieces for $9.99. The salad was good but also $9.00. The entree's were delicious and I have no complaints there. We had two drinks each and after all was said and done, the bill for two was $135.00, $155.00 with the tip. So all in all it's a bit pricey for what you get in our opinion. If you have the dough to blow, it's a fun little place. Our waiter was great and was very knowledgeable. We would go back, but not too frequently as we are not Doctors or Lawyers.

    We try to go to Asti's at least once a month. Of course we were concerned about spending our wedding anniversary on Valentines by dining out. But true to form, Charlie, the owner, and his fabulous staff didn't miss a beat. The food, ambiance, service, everything was fabulous. Thanks to all of them for a great evening!

    This is our new favorite place to go for a special night out. I am always impressed with the food, whether I eat something simple like penne and sausage or their free form seafood ravioli. I recommend the risotto dishes they change up often. The staff is great and know their wines. A wonderful little gem in the Orchards. Just go!

    We, again, enjoyed our dining experience at Asti D'Italia. We could visit with our guests and take our time without feeling any pressure. It was snowing and the ambiance was very sweet and made us all feel like we were somewhere far away. Food was delicious. Mussels are wonderful. Seafood is fresh. The chef's specials are fabulous. Good wine list. Yes, we will be back again.

    Overall my meal was good, the wife's turned out pretty good and she really liked what she ordered. The dessert was in house made and it was really good. I felt my dish "Penne with Italian Sausage Ragu" was good but a little bland. My wife and I both felt this was a good place to try out since we have never been and that is able all. I do not believe I would go back, but the only reason is because of the cost. My wife and I spend $107 before tip, and for it just be okay pasta dishes does not cut it for me at that cost.

    Met up with my friend for an evening of girl talk and catching up. We wanted a place that was quiet and where we would not be hurried. Asti D'Italia met all our expectations. While I've dined there several times, this was her first time at the restaurant. It was a weeknight (Wednesday) and we never felt rushed. Had anyone been waiting for a table, we would definitely have given up the table. This is a nice place to go in the north area.

    We went to asti.d'italia for my birthday. When he came to our table, he didn't tell us of any specials. He asked what he could get started for us and I told him our drink order and he asked what we wanted for dinner and I told him we would start with the potato gnocchi and he Also asked for our dinner order, he should have brought our drinks and then taken our food order. When he brought the wine flights he mumbled the names of the wines so we weren't sure what we were drinking. The steak was tough, I've made better steaks at home. I was disappointed. For roughly $75, I went home hungry after eating all of the food we ordered.dinner wasn't as good this time around and I felt rushed and I hate that. I'm hesitant to go back again

It was a birthday dinner for our daughter, and included her husband and their three children (ages 12, 12, and 14), as well as Grandma and Grandpa, It could not have been more special. The restaurant's menu is Italian. The preparation, seasoning, and taste were distinctively different (better) than the typical Italian restaurant, The attention to service was outstanding, A treasure located in a shopping center.

    We went to just have a couple appetizers and a dessert. We ordered mussels and the anti-pasta platter. Both were excellent and we especially liked the anti-pasta platter because it was so big. At most restaurants, they are very small bites. We ordered their Chocolate Temptation cake for dessert and once again, we were very impressed. It was delicious and large enough to share and we left very full. It was a nice date and we will go back for sure.

    The convenient location and promising menu brought us into Asti. Prices were very high for mediocre food that lacked flavor. The lettuce in the salads was not crisp and fresh, and the Capellini Caprese had no flavor. The saving grace was the good service. We may try it again for appetizers and skip the expensive dinner.

    It was my wife's 30th birthday. I made the reservation via Open Table and when we arrived we were almost immediately greeted by the owner. He said our table was ready and took us to it. There were the flowers I have ordered in advance for my wife. Everything looked great. We shared some delicious plate with cold meats, olives and cheese.The menu portions were plenty for us, she had chicken and I had the duck. Both were tasty although not great. We finished with some truffles and a couple of sweet martinis that were a bit on the strong side. We had a great time. The background music is just at the right volume for conversation. All other patrons seemed to enjoy themselves as well. Overall I will recommend this place to everyone!

    Went for a date night out, only to find the restaurant was under staffed and could not hold up with the moderately full restaurant. Had to ask host to get water after sitting at table for 5 minutes with waiters passing by our table and no one stopping to say hello and ask for our drink order. Not a welcoming feeling. Food was good quality, and once we got a server (when he wasn't getting pulled in a different direction), things got a little better. I would go again for the food - but probably won't, due to the overall poor service. Disappointing...

    Asti D' Italia is a top quality operation. It's hard to imagine anyone could leave after their visit thinking they'd made a mistake in choosing Asti D' Italia. The staff works hard; they're on top of things. Tony knows how to keep his diners satisfied, and from what I've seen and heard around me when there, diner satisfaction is the driving objective of this restaurant.

    We chose to visit Asti for the first time and overall the experience was good. The mussels were fabulous! So we're my Atlantic salmon and my boyfriend's risotto. No complaints there and the favors are definitely enough of a draw to bring us back. The service was good for most of the meal, but fell off just a bit between dinner and gelato. Not a deal breaker, but noticeable... We will be going again for sure...

    We have walked by this place many times. Finally decided to give it a try, celebrating my wife's promotion. The ambiance was inviting and relatively intimate, with friendly and attentive service. The food was good and unique enough to remind you that you were in a "local establishment". I am very happy to have found this type of restaurant close to home. Great to be able to go out for a special dinner and not have to drive downtown. We will definitely return.

    We both had the green salad, the chicken marsala, and finished with chocolate temptation cake. The salad was awesome-just the right amount of dressing. The entrée was marvelous. The chicken was tender on a bed of delicious mashed potatoes. The sauce was divine-the best marsala I've had. The veggies were seasoned perfectly. The portions were huge and the service was fantastic. The cake came with two scoops of gelato-one strawberry and the other coffee flavored. Needless to say, the cake was sinful. From the bar, I had an amaretto sour-10 out of 10, and my wife had the three glass sampler. Everything was perfect. Asti is a fantastic place for an intimate celebration dinner. I highly recommend it-5 stars!!

    We had been to this restaurant twice before and it didn't disappoint this time either. We met another couple here for dinner on a Saturday night and had a reservation so we were seated promptly. They have a great selection of dishes for everyone...anything from vegetarian, meats, seafood's, & pastas. The wine selection is great also. The crab cake appetizer is rather small but very tasty. You can't go wrong with any food selection here. I would definitely recommend trying this local gem of a restaurant out if you haven't already.

    Such a cute place, great location, great decor, and great feel but the service was bad. It took a long time to see the waiter, and it took him a long time to take our drink order, deliver the wine, and take our food order. We were never offered additional glasses of wine, not all the food showed up at the same time, and some dishes were better than others. That makes it hard to give more than fair on the food due to the inconsistency. There is a lot of work to do to get to a "good" overall rating in my opinion. We were there for a special occasion. Wish it had been a better experience.

    This was the restaurant of our first date over 2 years ago. We frequented it regularly for over a year but hadn't been in quite a few months, as we decided to try some new places. Came back to Asti this past weekend, and it was just as good (if not better) than we remembered it to be all the times before. Charlie (owner) is wonderful. Though most of the staff had changed since we were last there, they were all well trained and efficient, as well as friendly. We usually split the delicious bison lasagna and one other entree -- this night it was the risotto special with wild boar, which was fabulous! A definite repeat if it's on the menu again. Several larger groups were dining that night but it was still very quiet and enjoyable.

    My husband & I looked for a restaurant near AMC theatre to have dinner before a movie- what a great choice! Very good salad choices with savory dressing- we loved the Golden Beet Salad. Pretty presentation & could have been shared by two. The Risotto for the evening was delicious and my husband really enjoyed his Italian sausage & Penne. Tried the vanilla bean Panna Cotta for dessert- delicious if a trifle thin. Coffee was bold but not bitter- very good. We will definitely recommend & return!
