Andrea dell'Asta (c. 1673–1721) was an Italian painter of the late-baroque period. Born in Bagnoli (once just outside Naples), he died in Naples. He trained with Francesco Solimena, and worked for a time in Rome. His name has myriad spellings, the painter himself used Aste but other have used d'Asti, D'Asti, Dell'Asti, etc. Much of his work in Naples was destroyed by World War II. He painted a Nativity and Epiphany for the church of the Santa Teresa degli Scalzi in Naples. He also painted an Annunciation for Santa Maria dell'Avocata and a Madonna of sorrows for San Giovanni Battista delle Monache. He died in Naples.
