We popped in for dinner following an early evening concert on a beautiful Friday evening. We expected a long wait, but we were pleasantly surprised to be seated shortly after arriving. It was serendipity. This small restaurant tucked away in the neighborhood was absolutely delicious and authentic Italian food. With each course, we fell further in love with this place.... More

3 for dinner without having prebooked and were seated immediately. Pizza was only so-so but risotto and linguine dishes were very good indeed. Comprehensive wine list from which to choose.

Emmett and his staff do a wonderful job of serving terrific food in a cozy atmosphere that makes diners feel welcome and at home. The dishes are both classic and well executed. The service is attentive without being overbearing. I would not describe it as "inexpensive", but well worth it for the food and experience.

Tried Asti on a busy Friday night. The restaurant was packed, which was a great sign. Our waiter was diligent and thoughtful but was struggling with an overworked kitchen. The octopus was so salty, the pizza was a bit overdone and everything came out pretty slowly. The owner did proactively fix our experience, which makes me want to try them... More

Business meeting with two associates, the staff let us linger before ordering without feeling rushed. Once we decided the two appetizers were delicious, stuffed mushrooms were tender fungi filled with ricotta, goat cheese, Parmesan and a hint of sage and truffle oil. The ricotta and cherry bruschetta were two large pieces of bread covered in homemade ricotta,black pepper, fried rosemary... More

I was taking my son to look at UT this spring. He has multiple food allergies. So, we let the restaurant know ahead of time of our numerous limitations. When we arrived, they had clearly gone over the information with everyone from the hostess, to server, to sous chef, and the chef (this is rare for a restaurant to do).... More

We had a great experience at this resturant on 7-15-16 for dinner. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We did not make reservations, but we were taken care of while we waited. The food was inventive and very tasty. 5 out of 5, would eat here again .

Well-prepared spaghetti carbonara with fresh al dente pasta, a nice taste of fresh egg, fresh pancetta and an acid that was not quite sweet enough to be lemon but added such a great zest to the dish made this a really worthwhile meal. The Northern Italian minestrone was just not quite up to my taste and I will skip it... More

Asti has all the standards on a fine Italian restaurant. Their chefs don't take a standard approach with the ingredients or the flavors, so each dish has a pleasant and rewarding surprise. The wait staff were very well trained and generous with wine and information.
