Expectations were high but we were dissapointed. Mussles and clams had some sand in them, the fish was dry, and the swordfish had too much garlic on it. The Carbonara was good.
Delicious homemade food! Great ambiance - the dining room is beautifully decorated.
Thanks for the review! Come back soon!
Thanks so much for the review!
Found our new favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego. Super friendly, we brought our own bottle of wine and were extremely surprised how the attendant was able to accommodate us with a bucket of ice and suggesting the right meal to complement our white wine. Everything was delish and will definely will go back and highly recommend.
Thanks so much for the review! We're always glad to hear good things about our waitstaff. We appreciate the feedback, come back anytime!
Best osso buco ever!
And complementary valet parking helps on the cost.
Thanks for the review! Come back anytime!
Good spot for a quick meal. The bread was fantastic. Spinach salad left much to be desired. Linguini with clam sauce was excellent. Wait staff excellent. I ate outside!
Hello Chris! We appreciate the feedback and we're so happy you enjoyed the food! Come back anytime!
We were in San Diego for a convention and found that the service, the food, and the ambiance were much better than several other "better" known sites in the Gaslamp district. The service was excellent and the value much better. I plan to return on my next visit.
Thanks so much, Frank! Come back anytime!
Enjoyed the appetizer of Octopus but it was $23. Enjoyed the Veal but it was more of a piccatta than a saltimbocca. The total costs without drinks was $75
Thanks for the feedback!
Went this past Sunday. Very quiet and not crowded which added a cozy-romantic atmosphere throughout our Anniversary dinner. The food and wine are always amazing. We’ve been going to Asti’s since the 90’s and love it now as much as we did back then!
Thanks so much! We are always pleased to hear about long-time customers. We appreciate your support!
Great food. More clams please. Pasta was the bomb.
Thanks so much for the review! Come back soon!
Nice little restaurant, great service and food, good ambience. Will definitely eat there again.
Thanks so much, Mark! Come back anytime!
We always feel at home when we visit Asti Ristorante. The hostesses are always pleasant and polite. The servers always greet us like we are family. Their food is authentic and delicious, and the selection is unlimited. It is a great place to visit, whether it is an evening on the sidewalk patio or inside under the lovely mural. They always have fresh flowers on every table and the bread is fresh and warm. Love this place!
Thanks so much for the review! We're so glad you enjoyed the food and we are always happy to treat you like family!
Outstanding food, top service by Mark (who has been there for 26 years) and Julia, everything was just terrific, wish we had a restaurant like this where we lived
Thanks so much for the review, Enrique! We appreciate your feedback.
Typical Gaslamp tourist trap, with hostesses trying to lure you in. The food is not authentic, nor is the service. It’s not bad, it’s just certainly not very good. Expect nothing more than absolute mediocre here.
Nice little Italian restaurant close to Balboa theater with great food, nice ambiance, people watching and wonderful service
Thanks for the feedback!
Wonderful food and staff! I would recommend this to any friend. Just don’t go across the street to the sugar factory it’s horrible.
Thanks for the kind words, Shelby!
I made a reservation and had to wait 40 minutes to get the table. It's unfortunate to be waiting at the sidewalk with hundreds of people walking and moving every minute to let then by. My guests were not thrilled about having to wait that long when having made a reservation.
The food is good, the service was outstanding and I appreciate that.
So if you want to go to this restaurant.... Get there early and let them know you want to be seated on time.
Our server, Abby was awesome
Thanks for the comment! Abby is awesome. Come back soon!
Always a great dining experience and Asti. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The place is always packed, so probably a good idea to make a reservation. We sat next to 2 different tables that were long time repeat customers, as well. Good to know that others appreciate this gem as much as me. :)
Thank you for the kind words, Jamie! It makes us happy to see our customers returning and we can't wait to see you again!
It was overcrowded due to Valentine’s Day. Maximizing profits at the convenience of diners. Food was ok; not so exceptional as to overcome the noise and overcrowding. Servers did the best they could.
The team accommodated our early arrival for a Valentines dinner reservation with ease. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, one of our favorite San Diego experiences.
Thanks for the awesome review!
