Excellent dining experience from start to finish. We were seated promptly, enjoyed a delicious red sangria, nibbled on tasty bread all capped by one of the best Italian meals we have had in Austin. The server was attentive and quick. We look forward to an occasion to come back!

Reliably outstanding. The chef’s palate and sensibilities strike the perfect balance of simplicity, creativity, and refinement. The wine list is outstanding, the atmosphere comfortable and conversation friendly— accommodating romance and platonic conversations with equal ease.

ASTI is my new favorite restaurant: exceptional food and friendly, knowledgeable, attentive service. The food is so good that I may never get to taste everything I'd like to, because what I've already had was so scrumptious it'll be hard not to order it again. I LOVED the trout piccata, and the Brussels sprouts were so good I could easily make a meal of them alone--in fact, I may just do that the next time I go for lunch. I suspect there's no way to go wrong at ASTI; it's an Austin gem!

I usually like this place and when I'm in the Hyde Park area however today they started me a pork chop that was not cooked and I'm concerned about my health. The owner comped us for the meal but it still doesn't excuse this potentially fatal mistake. All they gave us was a refund and excuses.

Reservation was pushed back 15 minutes. Then we waited another 15-20 minutes to get seated. Then seated right by the door on a night it was in the 20s. Several items were not seasoned - example the gnocchi which was a special that evening - wasn't salted. The lobster soup, another evening special, had almost no taste. It felt like they knew they'd be busy and didn't have to try. Our food would be brought out and then no one checked up on us. So by the time I finally caught someone's attention to get salt and pepper for the soup, it was cold. The seafood risotto, a menu item was excellent. If you are a regular, you'll probably get good attention. If not, consider going elsewhere - at least for a special occasion. And stick with the regular menu - not the specials.
Not a New Year's Eve dinner I want to remember.

We made the reservation a week in advance for New Year's Eve! We had to wait about 10 minutes for our table because it was occupied when we arrived, but that was no big deal. However, when settling our tab after ordering a last round of drinks the manager came over to let us know that "people were waiting on the table" which I've never expedited with a reservation before. He asked if we'd finish our drinks at the bar, because he didn't want to ask us to "chug" our drinks. I've been to ASTI several times and have never been asked to rush from a table or been informed that a reservation had a time limit. It felt very rude and unprofessional since we're not obligated to make sure you're managing your table times adequately.

Asti continues to be my favorite Austin restaurant. It has a warm and welcoming charm, exquisite food that is varied seasonally, and the hospitality of friendly, knowledgeable staff. Each guest is treated with warmth and skillful care. Emmett is a lovely presence, and the entire experience is always calming, nourishing and delightful. Fantastic pizzas, pastas, and seasonal risottos, and elegant desserts. I've enjoyed every single meal here and I come frequently to this neighborhood treasure.
