salt, salt, salt. Couldn't really taste the food for all the salt. Used to love this place. New chef? Loves salt? Had calamari, which was so salty we couldn't finish it, and we LOVE calamari. Then I had the pasta w/ lamb, was fine but not great. I can make better. My girlfriend had the seafood stew which she complained to me was incredibly salty. Will think twice before returning.

Cannot say enough good things about Asti! Each time we dine, there is a great special or one of our current favorites- or, a forgotten gem. The staff (& owners) are friendly & want to make sure you’re happy. This is one of the best examples of a neighborhood restaurant in Austin which is deservedly beloved.

This is one of my favorite Austin neighborhood restaurants. Always great service, wonderful food and just a great slice of Austin. It is casual yet has the feeling that its something a bit more special. Highly recommend-especially for a date.

The food was delicious, my husband and I ate everything off of our plates. He had the seafood risotto (I started stealing his food after I finished my plate) and I had one of the specials, which was a salad of beets with shaved Brussels sprouts on top of their ricotta. I was obsessed. The stuffed mushrooms, although smaller than I thought still a good portion and very tasty. Our waitress was so sweet and amazing. She caught that it was my birthday last Saturday so she got us a free dessert! The bittersweet chocolate cannoli. Omg. She suggested I take it to go so I can lick the box. I am not ashamed that I did that, no regrets.
It was quiet since it was pretty slow for a Saturday night, but I hope they stick around for a while because we definitely want to come back.

Excellent Italian fare with a twist. They offer gluten-free pasta to sub with any dish. The focaccia and pizza were both tasty. The fried artichoke appetizer was excellent. The server was aware of our schedule (pre-theater dinner) and made sure we had plenty of time.

The food at Asti was so bad last night. The buratta tasted like mom’s recipe dressed in hidden valley Italian dressing. My date ordered the $24 salmon, which used to be their stand out. Luby’s makes a better salmon now - Overcooked and no taste. The old version was crisp on top and medium to medium rare - I ordered the $30 hanger steak and it was terrible. Sinewy - it was cooked to my order but really? $30 for a crappy cut of sliced select grade round steak? Silver lining - our service was prompt and underwhelming wine by the glass were at least nice pours (I left most of mine on the table).

We very much enjoyed our return visit to Asti. The service is always really good and we especially appreciated our waiter, Justin, who was very attentive and knowledgeable, as well as friendly and fun. I usually get pasta, but opted for the salmon and enjoyed it. I had the salsa verde on the side, and fairly glad I did as it wasn't really my cup of tea with the salmon particularly. But the fish was perfectly prepared. I subbed green beans for asparagus and they were beautifully grilled. My husband got the Paglia e Fieno Casarecce, which was very rich and very good! It was spinach and egg pasta, prosciutto, peas, in a cream sauce. He really liked it. The wine we chose was a Sicilian one which had been recommended to us by the bartender on another visit. Very smooth and just right and the price was reasonable as well. We will be back soon.

GREAT place to go for lunch or dinner! I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. Have had several pasta dishes, salmon and duck...all great. And, the desserts are to die for. Super service.

I would normally would have identified the Service as 'Outstanding', as Mr. Emmett Fox waited on us for a good portion of our meal. Unfortunately, our waitress may not have been told that we were celebrating an anniversary; and, we felt somewhat rushed during the first part of our visit. The quality of the food, the size of our portions, and the unique wine recommended was indeed 'Outstanding'.

Great food. A real neighborhood restaurant. I particularly enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms. My husband had the carbonara --it was wonderful--the homemade pasta was outstanding and the sauce delicious. I had a pizza. It was also very good. Good sized portions too. The waitstaff were very attentive. Definitely recommend.

Excellent food and wine list. Our server made a fantastic wine recommendation! The chef/ owner (?) came around to talk to guests to ensure the food and service was top notch. The only drawbacks are that it is rather crowded (tables very close to one another similar to European dining) and the noise level was very high. Despite that, I highly recommend for special occasions or a really nice meal. I will definitely return.
