Nice little restaurant in the middle of Asti, with interesting dishes and a good wine list. Waiting staff were very friendly and multi lingual, making it easy to experiment.

This restaurant and wine bar served great food and wines specializing in local specialties. Service was very good too. My starter was amazing – I had baccala wrapped in aubergine slices and cooked in breadcrumbs and parmesan, served with mussels. My main course was risotto with artichokes and Bra cheese. Dessert was tarte tatin with ice-cream and chocolate sauce. It... More

My wife and I had a very disappointing dinner at the Pompa Magna during the Asti Palio in September 2016. The food was generally quite mediocre and the service was extremely slow. There was one waiter and one waitress serving approximately 45 customers. We had to request a menu and the waitress to take our drink and food orders. The... More

We had lunch here and actually we were able to eat outside in the parking near an old castle / church. It was a nice location. Inside the restaurant also looked nicely decorated. The service was friendly and accommodating. The food was very good. We were very content with our choice of restaurant!

Took a local recommendation, and not disappointed. Great food though had gone for wines. Simple local and well cooked. Prices reasonable. Helpful proprietor Paolo, who recommended wines. Good list, but not so great by the glass, but he tried very hard and opened lots of things that weren't on the board. Suspect would do even more if asked nicely! Very... More

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
