The pastas and pizza are very nice. It's a small Italian restaurant with reasonable prices and good food. Service was good. Great for a quick lunch.

We had a great meal at Asta - authentic Italian pasta and pizza. Loved sitting in the lovely courtyard at the back of the restaurant. Good wine and great service.
