We stumbled upon this restaurant while exploring Gaslamp Square - we took advantage of their happy hour and split a flatbread and a salad - wine was good too!

This is a wonderful family run restaurant. Tables for large gatherings or small intimate dinners. The service was excellent. The food is exquisite; not precious, more like a wonderful family banquet. The lobster pasta on Christmas Day was a joy. The only think that was an annoyance was the photographer who mumbled something before taking some photographs of our party,... More

But not that good when you enter, the service was a bit slow and they didn't seem to like there job, 22 USD fro a spagetti Carbonare is a bit price, but sitting outside made up for that, bu again to pricy.

Dinner for two Thanksgiving evening. I had the Tataglia (Beef tenderloin in balsamic reduction $33) and my wife had Scallopine Parmegiana (veal parmesan $30) Our primary waiter was Alessandro who is particularly knowledgable on Italian wine. Juan also contributed to our evening's pleasure. Both are consummate professionals. Dinner was washed down with a 2012 Barolo by Barisolo. Just coming into... More

We had eaten here during our visit last year and were impressed. We returned this year and were definitely not disappointed! The food is excellent, portions plentiful, service professional and friendly, and prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.

Asti was recommended to us by hotel staff. The food was great. We had bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and feta, pasta with lump crab and shrimp and tiramisu for desert. All delicious. We sat outside on the small patio and people watched while eating. The service was fantastic as well. We'll definitely be back.

We had a large party (8) for dinner. Service was impeccable. Everyone had a different dish and everyone raved about their food. I had lobster fettuccini with shrimp and scallops. Highly recommended! Nice wine list with some great, affordable options. Amazing desserts, my favorite was the limoncello cake. Our entire experience was fantastic.
