    As always, both the food and the service were excellent. Jennifer is knowledgeable and so friendly and a delight, as well as being attentive as a server. Our pasta dishes and wine were terrific. The food is so fresh and authentic. The chef, sommelier, and the whole team do a great job and they make us feel special. We had a wonderful night.

    We really liked Asti, and will definitely return. We hope that next time they will offer olive oil (or even butter) for our bread, even though it's very tasty. We also hope they will offer fresh pepper and parmesan when they bring the tasty food to the table. The only hiccup with the food was that the special of the night did not have nearly enough seasoning or liquid for the quantity and thickness of the noodles. The service, it has to be said, was outstanding.

    We eat out at multiple times weekly at various types of restaurants at all price points. Asti Trattoria has been the only one in many years were the food was so poorly prepared (potentially with less than fresh ingredients) that we politely asked for our check, paid and went elsewhere to eat. We let the server know the about the quality issue and they just said “ok” walked away after accepting payment. Avoid this place there are many other amazing restaurants in Austin to spend your dining dollars and actually be able to eat your food safely.

    Mitch was our server and so knowledgeable about everything! He answered all of our questions, had great recommendations/suggestions besides “this is my favorite” down to how the food is made and created and how it’s unique to that restaurant. We went for our anniversary and got an appetizer, salad, entrees, drinks, and 2 desserts for $150ish including a good tip for Mitch. I HIGHLY recommend!

    Asti is a great little gem that has been around forever, which tells you a lot about whether it’s good or not! The food is really great and the price point is pretty amazing for an Austin restaurant. Their wine selection is great and I would highly recommend. Our service was a little slow, but it wasn’t for lack of our server trying. She got pulled into some more high maintenance tables but still did her best to stay on top of things.

    I LOVE ASTI! I feel like it's the best Italian in town - by far! I'm so happy they added brunch to their offerings - their shakshuka is the BEST! Everyone who works there is super friendly too, which is a bonus. Highly recommend. :-)

    Really loved this place—the decor isn't anything special but it feels like a comfortable, neighborhood gem. We absolutely loved the fried artichokes and the Grisanti Spinach. The Carbonara was so good too, made with fresh pasta. We tried the Grilled Salmon - definitely skip that. It's sweet (topped with a tomato marmellata) with a mushy ragout that just didn't taste good at all. Could not eat it but everything else was exceptional.

    I really loved the restaurant itself, the decor, and vibe. It is pretty loud and our waitress used her normal voice so we could not hear everything she said. She forgot to bring a glass of wine for my sister in law, that was a little bit of a bummer. We ordered the muscles and they were a bit on the fishy side. My wife always orders them and she ate a handful and refused to eat more. Pizza was good. I asked my wife and sister in law if they would come back and they said probably not. I may go back to give it another try to be fair.

    Our waiter was excellent suggested menu options, i.e. 1/2 of an entree and 1/2 of eggplant caponata. Very attentive but not over bearing. Appetizers were excellent. Our waiter also offered way to save on wine since we were drinking 3 glasses.

    We ordered over an hour before we needed to leave for a show. We told the server at that time that we had to leave an hour and 10 minutes later we did not receive our food until an hour and five minutes later after numerous complaints that seemed to not be heard. I finally talk to the manager, and it seemed at that point they made our food numerous people came in after us ordered and we’re finished eating. Meanwhile we had a show at bass we needed to get to, and we had said that. The response from the initial people we talk to you about this, as time was ticking by, was to just shrug their shoulders, and say that someone had not shown up.  We did not get to enjoy your food at all. They did not take any items off of our bill. I will not be going back to Asti

    What a lovely dinner, and our server was wonderful. Really good food and wine selection, and our after-dinner cappuccino capped a great experience. Only negative was the noise level on a Saturday evening, but this is easily solved by visiting on a week night. Would definitely recommend!

    Been to Asti Trattoria twice. Once for a sit-down dinner, and once at the counter for happy hour. Both experiences were excellent. The food is wonderful, and the vibe of the staff makes the place welcoming and exceedingly comfortable. Love it.
