We had a fabulous meal and wonderful service on a snowy evening in April! We would recommend the macaroni and rigatoni and the house Genovese

Been to Asti a few times now, never been disappointed. Staff friendly & attentive, cosy surroundings, great food . Love the arancini stater, it's a large one- usually the reason I rarely have desert, although there's a good selection.
