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.
Wonderful food and staff, the prices were higher than expected with $ rating. We were celebrating a birthday, and wait staff were excellent!
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!
Very nice, great service with very attentive staff and food was excellent.
Asti is a lovely neighborhood gem. Food is yummy, the service was spot on, and the ambiance is wonderfully intimate and warm.
We had a great time at Asti as usual. My lamb bolanese was excellent.
I’ve been going to Asti for 15 years now but haven’t been in about a year. The food is even better and portions seemed bigger too. I love this place so much!!
Amazing food! Savored every bite with a glass of my favorite italian wine...
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.
Food was great. Wine was great. Staff was great. Had an excellent dinner dining experience.
Delicious Italian fare and tentative, friendly service.
The homemade pasta was very good. All three off us ordered different things and they were all very good.
Great food (all the pasta dishes are outstanding, love the bread, love the fried brussels sprouts), relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Great wine too. My parents hate loud restaurants and this is a comfortable place for them.
The food was excellent and the service was good. I walkways going to this restaurant as it reminds me of the neighborhood restaurants in NYC. Love this casual atmosphere ; had a very fun evening.
Friendly service and excellent Italian food! Well priced and perfect for a date or going out with friends.
Rigatonni is fabulous!!! I get it almost every time because it is awesome.
The pizza was really good. The only negative was a little too much butter.
I’m is a little pricey but sooooo good! The mushroom appetizer is to die for!
Always great food and service...never fails. The full staff obviously gets along as they work well together. We will and do eat there regularly.
First time here. Met the owner. Great recommendations and service from the staff. Loved it and will be coming back!
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!
Asti is a great neighborhood place. It is always good place for a nice dinner out. We have never been disappointed. They have a nice wine list also.
Every aspect first class.
Great service and consistently great food. Thank you.
All three of us were underwhelmed with our food. The waiter did a good job, though, and the restaurant was cute.
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.
Both of our dishes lacked flavor. Stuffed mushrooms were good. Prices are fair and I really want to like this place but not sure I'll be back anytime soon.
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.
