I have been to Asti twice now for lunch in the past three weeks and it was excellent each time. The set menu is really good value for money and the items on the menu are delicious. The wine list has some really nice wines at reasonable prices - we had a bottle of red at lunch, our two courses... More

Dined at the Asti restaurant on Saturday evening. The restaurant itself is not very big but has a good atmosphere with very helpful and friendly staff. We ate from the pre-theatre menu. The food was was delicious with good size portions. I would certainly recommend the Asti and will certainly be back!

Great little place, fantastic food, and the staff were so polite, courteous and attentive! We accidentally stayed half an hour after their closing time because we lost track of time and no one rushed us out, or behaved as though we were a burden or an annoyance despite the fact we were unknowingly keeping them at their work late!

Amazing food, wonderful staff and really well priced. It was an amazing wee find and I would thoroughly recommend. The food was fresh and so flavoursome. Large portions but who can say no to a large plate of risotto?! We'll definitely be back.

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
