We come here all the time. The food, wine and desserts are always excellent. Fiona and her staff do an amazing job, the service is always excellent and always with a smile. I would suggest booking on the weekends. This really is a little slice of Italy in Edinburgh :-)

Visited here twice at bank holiday for breakfast and tea. You must try their bagels never seen them so big. Meta the lasagne was to die for as well as the garlic bread - you will not go home hungry. The staff were lovely and friendly

We went there for brunch and had various dishes (English breakfast, eggs benedict, etc). One of us had ordered a selection of Italian meats and cheeses (which is a menu item) which is a dish that requires no cooking, just slicing the meats/cheeses and plating them up. It took ages to be served while everyone else's dishes had arrived. My... More

We were very fortunate to stumble into this tiny Italian in Broughton Street. Very friendly, accommodating and sensible staff. (We wanted brunch so the realised we may as well have a window table reserved for lunch.) Eggs Benedict with perfect poached eggs, fresh Hollandaise and lovely thick ham, served on a thick slice of delicate brioche. My wife had the... More

For an Italian restaurant to set themselves above the chains, they need to be truly individual. So it is with Asti. This Italian restaurant does not serve pizzas, but do offer a fine range of pastas, risotto and other dishes. In particular, because I am a risotto fan, I was extremely impressed by the range, and the quality. We visited... More

Excellent little Italian. My wife and I eat here regularly and have never been disappointed. Decent wine list and if you are happy with the House options, then the price is very reasonable. We usually go for the Specials, normally fish dishes, and the have always been excellent.

Nice little Italian restaurant on a great little street, Broughton Street. Close to the playhouse theatre, and you can usually find a parking space nearby in Albany St. They do a nice set lunch menu , with 2 courses £9.95, 3 for £12.95. Staff are Italian and there was a buzz about the place with a few people just in... More

Love this little Italian place. The fresh fish was great and the olives and bread that were served ahead of our meal were so tasty. Asti is a friendly place, and it's located within walking distance of the castle. It's off the beaten path for tourists, which we really liked. Don't miss Asti.

Sunday morning in Edinburgh. Breakfast for six - most enjoyable - only starts at 9.30 though. But well worth waiting for

Popped by for an unplanned lunch. Their set menu was great at £9.95 for 2 courses. Choices were great. Starter options included soup, bruschetta or mussels. Mains included a risotto, couple of pastas and fish of the day. Delicious! Portion sizes were good too, not too big so you have room after your starter. Nice surroundings and not many tables... More
