Two of the Gaslamp District's Best Italian Restaurants, According to SanDiego.com

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- San Diego's Gaslamp District is no stranger to great and unique food destinations. Particularly, some of the best Italian restaurants in all of San Diego can be found within the boundaries of the Gaslamp District. Two of the very best Italian restaurants in this lively part of the city are Chianti Restaurant and Asti Ristorante. While any great Italian restaurant can be expected to offer exquisite pasta, extensive wine collections and romantic ambiance, it is the fine details that each restaurant pays attention to that make its food, atmosphere and service truly shine.

Chianti Restaurant: As Iconic As Its Wine Namesake

Chianti Restaurant is anything but timid. Indeed, everything offered at this fine Italian establishment is bold. That is only fitting, as it takes a certain amount of bravado to name an establishment after one of Italy's most iconic wines. Fortunately, Chianti backs up its boldness in spades. The first thing that will grab any diner's attention is that the decor is boldly Italian. A first date at Chianti would be sure to impress, with the requisite white linens, candlelight and fantastic wine choices that do its namesake proud. Perhaps bolder still are the flavors, as it has plenty of modern takes on Italian. In particular, the ahi tuna tartare is sure to please, and the Dungeness crab cakes are especially satisfying.

For those in search of the traditional Italian meal, Chianti delivers on all fronts once again. The chicken marsala needs to be tasted to be believed, and all of the pasta at Chianti is made from scratch for that truly at-home Italian feel. The outdoor seating and patio drives this point home even further, as it is truly an ideal way to soak in the lovely San Diego weather on a beautiful summer evening. In short, whether it is a romantic date night, a family evening or a corporate dinner, Chianti Restaurant will leave anyone satisfied.

Asti Ristorante: Sparkles Like Its Wine Namesake

Keeping with the theme of these Gaslamp treasures living up to the wines they are named after, Asti Ristorante absolutely sparkles and dazzles the senses. This upscale Northern Italian restaurant is the perfect way to enjoy a summer evening just like the Asti wine it is so fondly named after. Located in the heart of the Gaslamp District, this elegant restaurant is ideal for a romantic date night and is just as well-suited for a corporate dining experience. For a truly lovely evening, try to arrive a bit early to snag one of the prime tables on the outdoor patio and soak up the great energy that radiates from the lovely 5th Avenue.

The food at Asti is nothing short of spectacular. The lasagna with bechamel sauce is likely to be one of the best lasagnas you will have ever tried and the homemade veal leaves a lasting impression as well. Like Chianti, Asti's pasta tastes homemade and leaves an equally satisfying impression. The Gaslamp District is fortunate to have this gem of a dining option located in the heart of its streets, and Asti seems to revel in that fact. The service and the pride that the restaurant takes in ensuring that the diners leave satisfied and happy shines through. Needless to say, this restaurant could not come recommended more highly.

Like Their Wines, Chianti and Asti Stand Out From the Rest

While there are many dining options to choose from in the Gaslamp District, if Italian is the cuisine of choice desired for the evening, then we highly recommend paying a visit to Chianti or Asti. These are two of the very best Italian dining options in the Gaslamp District and they simply must be experienced to be believed!
