We were looking for a wine bar in Asti and found Pompa Maga on the internet. We went for a light lunch and to taste local wines. The area around the restaurant is not exciting but inside it is cozy and friendly. We got there right when they opened. A little over an hour later is was almost full. It... More

Great place for date night or with your friends. Warm atmosphere, with very typical Piemontese menu selections prepared with thought and flair. I will return as I love the food, location and ambiance, but mostly the great wine selections. highly recommended.

Loved our lunch here. The owner looked after us personally throughout and helped translate the menu and talk us through some good wines to try. Both food and wine are delicious! You can buy wine to take away also which is a great feature. The list includes drink in price and take away (cheaper) price. The atmosphere was good and... More

I loved this place. A perfect spot on an overwhelmingly hot July afternoon in Italy. The proprietor was very gracious and helped me select several lovely glasses of wine to my liking, which runs to the very dry, nebbiolo. The food was outstanding--grilled meats and marinated vegetables. He shared a very interesting book with me, one about the wines and... More

This restaurant and wine shop combines a laid back and friendly atmosphere, with exquisite service and good food. It is located in the old town of Asti, near the shopping street and the architecture attractions. The street itself is rather unattractive, but the inside of the restaurant is cozy and nice. We had a "à la carte" dinner for New... More

We were the first in the restaurant when we arrived at 730PM. Even though there was noone, it took the wait staff quite long to attend to us. However, once the maitre d' came for us, it was all good from there. She made some really good food and wine recommendations.. as we were not too hungry, we shared a... More

This place came highly recommended to us and was certainly very full, but I can't imagine why. I really don't like to can a restaurant as I know how much work goes on in the kitchen, but this was quite a let-down. They have an extensive and good value range of wines by the bottle, but the choice by the... More

I was fortunate to eat lunch at this traditional style restaurant with a colleague who lives in Asti. The inside of the restaurant is lined with wine bottles from local vineyards. The menu had a lot of variety with several interesting pasta, meat, and fish dishes. The warm bread from out of the oven and the wonderful aroma filling the... More

This restaurant offers great meals even though the outside looks ordinary. The meat and sea food was great. The service was also very good.
