Asti, located in the heart of San Diego's Historic Gaslamp Quarter, has been providing guests with an exquisite fine-dining experience since 1994. Watch the passersby as you dine out on the patio for a pleasant shaded lunch or while indulging in a candlelight dinner. Come on inside to experience the warm, elegant ambiance of the dining room. For the convenience of our guests, Asti can also arrange transportation to and from the restaurant.

"The food was excellent, wonderful lamb with raspberry red wine reduction sauce! Davide, our waiter, made fine recommendations and was attentive. Good wine list. We had to change tables due to staff bumping into my wife repeatedly while waiting on a large party adjacent to our table. We had a reservation, so this should not have been needed - but it was. After the move, all went smooth."

"We had a party of four this past Saturday night. This location is fairly new and possibly still trying to get it all together. Front house staff was in disarray early in the evening. Waitress delivered a martini without the requested olives then got "tunnel vision". I had to chase her to get her attention. A supervisor noticed and handled it. Server at an adjacent table kept banging into one of our party - partly a function of poorly placed tables, and part inattention by the server. Food was excellent, especially lamb chops, perfectly prepared and with a very lovely light sauce. This location does not compare with the Melrose location; but it is possible the new Fig and Olive needs to "ripen". Suggest waiting to dine here."
