We visited this restaurant in Asti during a 4 week trip to Italy. This was our last night in
Italy so we had recent experience of 30 Italian restaurants. Pompa Magna has a very small menu with daily specials. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. The service is personal and friendly and the outside seating area at the back of the restaurant under a wonderful brick castle is very special. This restaurant is also a wine bar where you can buy wine at a slightly reduced price to the restaurant price. The owner is an expert on local food and wine. Prices are reasonable Reservation recommended. We rate this restaurant. It’s not fine dining but it’s very good value for money.

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 an entire page of Barbera d'Asti. Would definitely go again.

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 the whole menu to explain each dish in detail - without which we may have been tempted to stick to dishes we knew the names of...

The food was excellent - I had the Bollito Misto (mixed beef cuts), these are cuts that perhaps one would not normally buy at the shops or eat in a restaurant. I must say they did not look like the most appetising meal I have ever seen, but it tasted really good.

Another member of our party had sea bass, which the waiter expertly filleted at the table.

As I mentioned about the wine, there is a wide selection, reasonably priced and also well described to allow us to match it to our meals and personal tastes.

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 the service is very friendly with one of the owners speaking excellent English being very helpful. Do not miss this place if you visit Asti!
