    Superb meal

    First time visit to Asti and it won't be our last. Delightful little restaurant with amazing menu and welcoming staff. This was real Italian cooking and not run of the mill restaurant chain fodder. Small room kept the noise down and it was pleasant for chatting while enjoying your meal. Starter portions were large so we recommend sharing unless you're very hungry.

Friendly neighbourhood Italian on Broughton Street

Asti is a casual Italian restaurant and cafe on Edinburgh’s ever lively Broughton Street. Open from morning to night, it serves coffee and cakes, lunch, after work drinks and evening meals. A bustling cafe space out front leads through to a slightly quieter dining room which looks out over leafy gardens.

Classic Italian trattoria dishes

Visitors to the nearby Playhouse make the most of the hearty pre-theatre menus at Asti while local workers keep the lunch menu trade rolling along. Good pasta, gnocchi and risotto dishes are at the heart of both menus. The a la carte adds in classic dishes like the saltimbocca, calamari, mussels in white wine and sirloin steaks with a variety of sauces. The antipasti platter is a popular starter as are the aubergine fritters with tomato sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan.

Completing the line-up are interesting daily specials, generous desserts and gorgeous fish dishes like the roast fillet of cod with a Parmesan crust, Puy lentils, pancetta and sauté potatoes.
