The pasta is a not al dente or i say the pasta is a little bit hard. The place is too noisy. The food taste is not good too. The only good here is their service.

We live in Gig Harbor, WA and have visited San Diego only a few times. We ate at Asti once before and had a wonderful experience. This was our second time and they did not disappoint. Food was spectacular and service phenomena!

Nice Italian find in the Gaslamp. Menu has good variety though they don’t show prices on their Specials menu. Service was outstanding. They made a sauce accommodation on my wife’s pasta. My chicken (special) was a bit dry but decent. We would go back to Asti again.

Great atmosphere, and the service is outstanding. Reservation online, or by calling. You can even just show up and check availability. If your not sure about the menu, ask your server and they will make amazing sugetions. Asti's make you feel comfortable, and the food is on a whole nother level.

Our favorite place to dine before the theater. Mark G has been our waiter for several years. He always remembers us even if it's been a year in between visits. The food has always been great - lobster fettuccine was wonderful this time. Excellent service from all the staff as well.

Had reservations for 8:00 for 6 people. Not seated until 830. Not served food until almost 930. Way overbooked. Food was very good as usual but their planning failed when seating people without reservations.

Food was good, staff was ok. Prices were fair to high. Convenient to hotels in Gaslamp area. I didn’t realize it until we got back to our hotel but we were charged for an extra drink we did not have.

I found out that I was charged an extra $6 for the bartender to shake, chill, and strain two shots of vodka in to martini glasses. That seems excessive to me.

This is our favorite San Diego area restaurant! We've been coming here on our anniversary (within a few days of the special date) - this is our 5 or 6th...and with each trip to San Diego as well. We love the food - the authentic atmosphere from the wait staff to the delicious food...do not pass up dining here!...you'll make it a 'must' thereafter. Thanks again, for a most-enjoyable evening!!!

Restaurant tries to hard to bilk you for higher priced meals on the specials list which they don't price. Thus you don't ask (embarrass yourself in front of your customers) but the unpriced entrees are Very expensive. In addition, the waiter tries to sell you expensive seafood appetizers without pricing - we resisted that fortunately. I won't go back here as long as they do such things. Ken
