Had only arrived in Asti a few hours before and found this place on trip advisor. Friendly bar staff with better English than our Italian. Had two glasses of asti, plus a few more red and white along with free antipasti. We bought a bottle to take away as it is also a wine shop. Very pleasurable way to spend a few hours.

After having quite a big lunch, we were looking for something a bit lighter for dinner so we stopped at Il Cicchetto for a drink and a small meal.

Wine list is as good as you would expect in an Enoteca - we didn't really need help choosing, so can't testify as to how helpful the staff would be to explain the different local vintages.

Food was alright but nothing special - the risotto with speck was a bit dry, gnocchi were better.

Based on our experience, I would recommend to stop here for an aperitif before going to have dinner. Nice little terrace just on the street.

Went to this bar for night cap with a local friend. Amazing selection of gins and tonics round the world eg from Peru, Germany and Vietnam. Must stop for Asti night owls.

I visited Asti with a mission - to try some Piedmontese wines - and Il Cicchetto turned out to be the right place for me. I sat at the bar and tried a total of 7 wines - two Barbera d'Asti, one Dolcetto, one Ruche, one Nebbiolo d'Alba, one Barolo and one Moscato d'Asti for finish. I had an additional glass of the Nebbiolo. The bartender offered bread, prosciutto and the Piedmontese Testun cheese sprinkled with dried Nebbiolo grapes - great pairings for my tasting - and all this cost me €15 (the tasting quantity for each glass of wine is typically not more than 100 ml). The bartender was very friendly and helpful, with knowledge of the region and its wines. Recommend!

Typical italian Enoteca, with a good wine selections. Food: basically ham and salami of excellent quality, cheses and other typical italian antipasti. Quite noisy on weekend, as well as any other place where wine and food are good in this country. This is usual in an italian bar or restaurant.
To be recommended to all tourists for a quick lunch at a reasonable price without spending hours in a restaurant during the day, leaving this pleasure for the evening. Located right in the historical centr in Asti.
Enoteca con buona selezione di vini curata con professionalità dai due titolari Franco ed Alberto. I salumi sono di ottima qualità con pezzi abbordabili. Oltre alle serate a tema, molto utile e pratico per un pranzo non impegantivo in un ristorante.
