We arrived on time and were seated immediately. Like most places we went, the restaurant’s AC was struggling to keep up with the 100 deg temps. Service was attentive and professional. We enjoyed a bottle of Pecorino, the crispy calamari and mussels for appetizers, Caesar salad with anchovies, then shared dishes of seafood pasta and pizza. We finished with cappuccino and cannoli. By the time we finished, the restaurant was full and had become too warm, so we didn’t linger. A good choice for classic Italian.

The entry was pleasant and we felt welcome. Our waiter was kind but was a little too pushy towards the special, which we decided against it. The pieces of bread were very late and taste like yesterday. The appetizers were good and promising (calamary and stuffed mushroom), however, the main dishes, what a letdown. We all tried different flavors of pasta which were uniformly dull and far too salty. We were so disappointed that we skipped the desert and just run out.

WOW! Who would guess a diamond dining experience on the corner of Duval & 43rd nestled inside Hyde Park? What a find, & we are delighted.

First of all, the staff is friendly & professional & gave special attention to my 91-year old momma. (Thank y’all so much for that as well as the quiet table.)

We began with the burrata & tomatoes. Quite nice- we all highly recommend. Our party of 5 then had the bolognese, linguine & clams (the favorite), lamb skewers & several side dishes, spinach receiving 5/5 thumbs up.

The linguine & clam with white wine sauce was as good as any we’ve had in Italy. Really really good. I’m already looking forward to coming back!

We were celebrating my birthday & they treated us to dessert on the house. Always classy. We got the chocolate cannoli- very rich, chocolate yumminess which was enjoyed by all.

Many thanks, ASTI! We live in Houston, but will certainly dine with you again the next time we are visiting family in ATX.

The food was phenomenal and the staff are extremely considerate of each guests comfort and experience! The restaurants atmosphere is spectacular and my family was able to have a wonderful conversation without feeling the pressure of other table’s noise. The staff knows the menu well and are glad to make wonderful recommendations! Definitely try the pizza and Rigatoni!

I had the linguine with clams, sausage, and tomato. Delicious! I’ve had it there before but it was even better. My husband had the crab pasta and also enjoyed his. The server was a sweet and very intuitive on pacing and bringing out the food. Didn’t rushing us but still timely. We love this place.

Our group of six enjoyed a wonderful meal at Asti. Our server was a joy - extremely well informed about Italian wine. My linguini with crab was heavenly, as were the other entrees. I highly recommend Asti for a relaxing dining experience where you can actually hear everyone at the table.

My husband and I cannot eat gluten and it is so very nice to be able to order excellent gluten free pasta and pizza. We also love the salmon that is on the dinner menu. Every dish we have ever had has been first rate. Looking forward to our next visit.

Normally an excellent go-to neighborhood Italian restaurant and a superb owner, manager, and waitstaff. However this time, staff seemed distracted and the food was mediocre. Very unusual.
