We did "pranzo" (lunch). Informal setting. Prompt service. Good food. Large portions. Very, very affordable. Filled with locals ... recommended by our hotel (Hotel Lis which is a fine property ... I will review also). It was just really good. I had the octopus (so hard to find on American menus). Wife had pasta. A bottle of Arneis (local dry,... More

We were walking back to our motor home with the intention of having lunch in the van, as when we travel around Europe we try to do so as cheaply as possible. Normally eating out isn't on our schedule, but as we were walking down the arcade we could smell the most wonderful smells from the outdoor tables at this... More

The restaurant is located at the corner and hosts a shadow terrace. The waitress was nice and prices are very good, ~8 euro for a pasta, ~15 for a main course. Why certain dishes were only for dinner wasn't clear (braised steak was fine, burger was for dinner?) but it was told with typical Italian charm. Unclear but friendly, works... More

Good service, once we were seated. Helpful and understandig staff who made our dinner easy with our 1,5 year old daughter. The food was fine and wine was great!

Located on the main piazza of Asti, enjoy a nice lunch on the porch. Cheap lunch with combo plates. Everything is fresh and we'll served. Small prices. 8 to 10eur for a lunch. A good place to stop when visiting Asti.

On our first ever visit to Asti, we happened onto Osteria del Palio the first evening. It was close to our hotel - Hotel Lis. How lucky we were. Decorated nice. Homey. Friendly staff. And, most of all great food at a modest price. They worked so hard explaining the meals in English to us. We returned the next two... More

This osteria is located in the city center of Asti opposite the car park. At lunch time the osteria was almost fully booked. Only Italians were sitting here. The ambiance is simple. The menu is small and offering a menue consisting of 3 courses at a price of 10,00 €. This price is hardly unbeatable in Italy. We ordered Vitello... More

The Tajarini with Tartufo Nero and Pecorino was Perfetto. And the salad had the creamiest buffalo mozzarella I've ever eaten. It was accompanied with a great Barbera wine.

We arrived quite late for lunch, about 2:30 pm. but still snagged the daily menù for EUR 10, which arrived swiftly and tasted good. All three dishes (primo, secondo, contorno) come on one platter-style plate, and a dessert (we chose a really tasty tiramisù) was also included. The service was very friendly, and three menùs, a glass of wine and... More
