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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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.

Thx.

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. :)

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.
