We stopped at Asti for brunch during a walkabout in Edinburgh. Broughton Street is full of restaurants but Asti looked so well kept and attractive we had to give it a try. Food was very good, I had a bacon, mushroom and tomato foccacia bap, the SP has never been known to refuse a Full English when it's on the... More

Eight of us had a great evening of great food and service. Several had the specials and they were really good. While the place was full we had very attentive service and when all eight are pleased it has to be good. The lentil soup was incredible.

We have not enjoyed an Italian meal this much since a trip to Sicily 2 years ago! We were wandering down Broughton Street on Friday afternoon and stopped here for coffee. After reading the menu and seeing the magnificent arancini on display we made a reservation for dinner that same day. We were not disappointed. Busy restaurant but the service... More

Visited with a colleague for an early evening meal . The two course menu proved excellent value and the service was particularly friendly and efficient.

We went to Asti for our daughters birthday. We had to wait for an hour for our starters. If we hadn't complained it would have been even longer. Drinks took ages to arrive too because "the bar was busy".The excuse was that the order was not entered on their computer correctly. When the food did arrive, it was mediocre. Starters... More

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
