Very nice place, good food (italian and steak), nice service, fair price. I really recommend the Insalata Bella Elena, followed by the Tagliata di Bue, and, of course, Tiramisu for dessert!

Our hotel concierge recommended this place for our first night. We had great people watching, and an excellent meal. All of our seafood dinners were wonderful

We Visit the Asti when we make our annual trip to San Diego. Service is excellent Food is superb and the Tiramisu is to die for. A bit pricy(the Lobster dishes that we order might have something to do with that) but well worth it.

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent Italian dinner meal at Asti's. The food was very good, plentiful, and we felt well attended by the servers. We did not feel rushed in any way. I expect that we will make it a point to visit Asti's again next time we are in San Diego

Great service with Food to match. Get a sidewalk table to watch the people and eat fine Italian food and very fair prices. Our server knew exactly what we wanted and made suggestions to match. Friendly service added to none of our party ever waiting for anything or getting anything too fast.

I loved the variety found on the menu. Our group loved the atmosphere and the options for indoor or patio dining. Friendly wait staff and delicious food. Price was reasonable based on the portion size. You can easily have enough for two meals when ordering any of their pasta dishes.

We went with a group on Saturday night July 19th. Our server Mark was the worst server I've ever had in 40+ years of eating in fine dining restaurants. He was never around, completely forgetful on everything we ordered. He then proceeded to insult us all by giving a guest who was with us $10 in cash to cover our... More

This restaurant was referred to us my the hotel we were staying in. What a lovely evening we had. The service was very good without being stuffy. The food was excellent. I will say it is a bit on the pricey side so if you are looking for an inexpensive spot, this isn't it. With that being said, most restaurants... More

This restaurant was great for dinner. We loved that we could reserve using Open Table. The staff is mostly of Italian descent, which provides an authentic experience. The food was very good. I was a little disappointed that they were out one of the specials listed on the menu, even though we ate dinner at 6 PM. But my second... More
