I had saltimbocca; my wife had tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms We had a great red wine from Sardinia. The restaurant was nicely priced. The staff was warm, and attentive. We came in on a busy Saturday without a reservation and they were able to accommodate us. We stayed at the 7 London B&B and Lynda had suggested we go to... More

Really delicious food and charming service. Superb pasta dishes and a fresh take on trattoria staples like Saltimbocca alla Romana and lasagne. Yummy desserts. 6 of us ate here and ordered different dishes, but we all agreed that if the waiter had made a mistake and put the wrong plate in front of us, we would still have been very... More

Simple - not formal - just excellent food. Larger inside than imagined. Outstanding soup and entrees. A new find.

We really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the staff at Asti. We even went back a second time. One of the waiter's was from Caserta, Italy a town next to where my husband was born. He had a chance to practice his italian. If we ever return to Edinburgh, we will definitely return to this restaurant.

Cosy Italian neighborhood restaurant with excellent food. Very friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere. One thing that surprised me (but this was in all of Edinburgh): paper napkins instead of cloth. It doesn't suit the nice atmosphere and good food. Staff was open for feedback, which is great.

Really enjoyed the food it was really fresh and authentic. The menu whilst not massive with specials really gives all the choice you need. I think the service was as good as the food. Really excellent. All in all. Really good and will definitely be back soon

Get the parmesan & balsamic salad, you won't be disappointed. Also consider the homemade mac and cheese or an espresso martini. Everything we had was amazing!

My husband and I went here for a pre-theatre dinner and had a wonderful meal. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive, and the tiramisu was divine. We'll certainly be back!

Looking for a great, cosy place to enjoy Italian food cooked to your liking? Asti is the one to opt for! Centered in the heart of urbany Broughton Street area is has become our local dine place - great for romantic 3 course meals (do leave room for the fab deserts!), with friends or small business - simply super!

"I've spent two hours back home, no wait I was still in Edinburgh!" If you never been in Italy before, this is the place will introduce better than anything else the cuisine and the surrounding, nice and easy dining rooms, but with a wonderful window on the back garden or on broughton street. The food was amazing, we had an... More
