Walked into this out of the way restaurant by accident and very happy we did. Had dinner one night, and came back the next night for wine tasting, followed by dinner again. Owner/chef Paolo was very kind to my wife and daughter and me, patient with our poor Italian and appreciated his English. Relaxed, great food, huge wine list with... More

Just had 2 main courses of crab pasta...lots of crab shell but little meat but then only 11euros each. Two glasses of good rueiro wine and a shared apple tart. Did the job on the way home from the wine bar.

We came to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local in Asti and we were really pleased with our evening meal. The restaurant is also a place to buy wines from the area, so if you enjoy a bottle at dinner, it is easy to take some home to enjoy later! Our waiters were very good, and went through... More

We walked around Asti on New Year's Eve day looking for a nice place to have lunch in the historic center. This was truly one of the best meals we had (and we had many!) on our two week journey in Italy. The food was perfection and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is lovely with wine bottles all around and... More

Nice little restaurant in the middle of Asti, with interesting dishes and a good wine list. Waiting staff were very friendly and multi lingual, making it easy to experiment.

This restaurant and wine bar served great food and wines specializing in local specialties. Service was very good too. My starter was amazing – I had baccala wrapped in aubergine slices and cooked in breadcrumbs and parmesan, served with mussels. My main course was risotto with artichokes and Bra cheese. Dessert was tarte tatin with ice-cream and chocolate sauce. It... More

My wife and I had a very disappointing dinner at the Pompa Magna during the Asti Palio in September 2016. The food was generally quite mediocre and the service was extremely slow. There was one waiter and one waitress serving approximately 45 customers. We had to request a menu and the waitress to take our drink and food orders. The... More

We had lunch here and actually we were able to eat outside in the parking near an old castle / church. It was a nice location. Inside the restaurant also looked nicely decorated. The service was friendly and accommodating. The food was very good. We were very content with our choice of restaurant!
