The Gaslamp Quarter was hoppin' on a Saturday evening with an NFL game the next day at Petco Park, so all of the sidewalk tables were taken. But there were a couple of tables inside that were just fine. Service was extraordinary, recommendations were knowledgeable, the house salad was OK, the pinot noir was excellent, and the lamp chops were... More

The food was amazing the drinks and wine were great. Our server Juan was the BEST! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the desserts were not reflective of the dessert tray!

This is a cosy elegant (ie table cloths) restaurant The service was first class on our first visit but lost its way on the second . A complaint soon rectified that. The helpings are gargantuan so we shared a starter and the main course. There's the story. The lobster and fettuccine was superb ( as we're the two starters of... More

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!

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
