First off the staff was very nice and friendly. The food was very tasty and had great flavor. I had the seafood fettuccine, which the flavor was good. Unfortunately I noticed the clams had a weird taste and sure enough I became very sick from the food. So I cannot give this a good review.

We went to Asti this past Saturday for a late dinner. The gaslamp area can get crowded later at night but the staff at Asti were able to sneak us in (table for 2). The hostess greeted us and soon after we were seated our server was there to take our drink orders. Alessandro was our server and was phenomenal;... More

This was probably the best meal ever!! Actually worth the price! The lobster fettuccine was a suprise with an actual lobster tail over the pasta along with other seafood. Amazing!! Normally on vacation, We would not eat twice at a restaurant, but this one is a must! Highly recommended!

Just looking for a seafood restaurant in San Diego downtown and found this place: Kind staff recommended daily specialties from which I selected the lobster linguini. A must, would only order this next time again.

This is a very nice restaurant in the middle of the Gaslamp district. Their menu was quite unique, with many different items to choose from. I had Seabass from Chili. It was superb. The wait staff was excellent, very attentative to our needs, and well trained. Overall, this dinner was better than hoped or expected. I would highly recommend.

The evening was so nice. Quiet atmosphere with professional staff. Good wine though a bit pricey. The lasagne was unbelievably good, not heavy but light with a cream sauce that blended so well with the melted cheese. I recommend this for a treat in the Gas Lamp district.

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!

Thank CathyRae25
