We enjoyed an excellent dinner, again. Our two appetizers - meat balls and fried artichoke hearts - were outstanding. The portion size was just right, and the flavors were outstanding. Our mains - bucatini, and chicken piccata, were excellent. The restaurant was about 80 percent full and yet the service and noise level were fine. The owner wandered by to say hi and thank folks for their patronage, which was a nice touch. It was overall a terrific experience. Our takeaway is that Asti's has excellent food, very good service, and a warm and relaxing setting. The menu is diverse but not large, and it changes with the seasons; every item we've tried has been excellent. We occasionally wish for a few more choices, but are never disappointed with whatever we've selected. We keep coming back.

Very disappointing food. We didn’t even eat it...just paid our bill and went and got food elsewhere. We really tried to support local!

The Chicken Piccata was very oily. Noise level was too high. Trout was very nice, black rice had no flavor, needed salt.

This has been my spouse's favorite restaurant for decades. We have eaten our anniversary meal at Asti for the last 15-years without fail. This visit our meal was mediocre. The setting was perfect, the staff and service were outstanding, the wine selection excellent . . . the taste of our main course meal was 'bland'. We both had to add salt and pepper to each of our courses (for trout, and for the salmon.) Otherwise - there would have been no flavor at all. I cannot speak for my spouse, but the salmon with cauliflower was akin to eating the visual equivalent of white paint. The desert Affogatos were tasty. But, the Tiramisu was dry. The lady fingers were neither soaked in rum nor coffee. Though sweet, refer to white paint reference above. For the first time in a decade, we looked at each other while paying the check and asked, "well, where do you want to eat next year?" for that special meal out.

Valentines Day dinner: lamb bolognese sauce was watered down to go further. calamari was greasy because the grease wasnt hot enough form overuse; usually its excellent there. excellent service.

Service was very good and friendly! Food was quite awful to be honest and strange. It was also very expensive for what we got and the taste of canned everything and not homemade spaghetti. Wouldn’t go back, as I mean when 2 dishes and 2 drinks are nearly $100 for a mediocre place, you know something is wrong.

Every time I eat at Asti, I fall in love with it again. The food is impeccable, the service is courteous and efficient, and the space is pleasant and inviting. A wonderful place to enjoy a fine meal and conversation with friends. Nice touches abound: from the tender rolls to the perfectly toasted almonds atop the green beans. This visit, I particularly liked the trout and the tiramisu.

Good American-Italian style food with a neighborhood vibe. Friendly service, good wine list. Dining room is a bit odd for the cuisine--feels a looks a bit like a designer diner.

ASTI always delivers delicious Italian ‘comfort food.’ Setting is cozy but elegant and service is friendly and inviting. The crowd seems like a regular one as It surely collects a following of returning patrons. Caesar salad is delicious with just the right amount of freshly cracked pepper. If you’re feeling a little out of sorts, have the Spaghetti Carbonara and you’ll be just fine. Enjoy!

We have been coming here for years. I remember getting a babysitter when we first came so it has been years and the great thing - it hasn't changed too much. Great menu, good wine choices and great service. As I told my husband, it reminds me of a typical NYC bistro, where you are close to your neighbors, but it still feels initimate. The menu is not huge but I like that - there is something for everyone. Don't miss the bread - worth every carb in it.

Recommended to us by a trustworthy friend, we were so happy to find ourselves at Asti. Packed on a rainy evening. The staff were all a joy to interact with; welcoming and smart. The food is delicious low key italian. Order lots of different items and share. Two diners can really indulge themselves for under $100.
