Asti, located in the heart of San Diego's Historic Gaslamp Quarter, has been providing guests with an exquisite fine-dining experience since 1994. Watch the passersby as you dine out on the patio for a pleasant shaded lunch or while indulging in a candlelight dinner. Come on inside to experience the warm, elegant ambiance of the dining room. Asti is walking distance to the San Diego convention center and to downtown hotels.
We arrived in San Diego on Christmas Day for holiday travel with family. As my family (5 people) was the first to arrive, we headed to dinner in the Gaslamp, close to our hotel. Asti fit the bill as we all have varied palates and...appetites. We ordered a wide range of menu items, including grilled octopus (fantastic), calamari (great, lightly fried) pastas (fantastic), salads (fantastic), red wine (just right) and some steaks. As we are from the midwest, the steaks were probably a B- compared to what we have here in Chicago. However, everything else was top notch and we'll definitely go again if in San Diego. Also, the service was absolutely, unbelievably good. The waiter (who was originally from Chicago area) was amazing.More

Thanks for the kind words! We're so glad you were able to spend your holiday with us. You're welcome back anytime!
The Asti is a great restaurant with a family feel and great servers. Our meals were delicious and the perfect amount! The wine list is reasonable yet extensive. Mark was a great waiter and always seemed to show up just as we needed him. Thank...you for a great experience!More

Thank you for the feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the wine and love Mark as much as we do. Come back soon!
We had a lovely dinner for a party of 17 to celebrate my hubby’s birthday. The restaurant was recommended by Alfredo, the concierge at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Before the party weekend, I spoke with Maria several times. She was always very pleasant and accommodating....This Italian restaurant was an excellent choice! It’s very charming and the food is delicious. Our server Claudio was fantastic and made sure everyone in our group had a great time.More

We had our first dinner with San Diego and it was the best we had. This was a good find in Gaslamp, waiter were friendly and knowledgeable. Good selection was good and the pasta was very fresh. We had fun and had a great meal,...did not waited long for the food and the portion size was perfect.
Being closed to the convention centre and hotels, I do recommend reservation for your party even during the weekMore
