Description: With the inspired help of our expert friend Theo Randall, one of the country's most celebrated chefs, we continually evolve our menu to bring our passion for Italy to life. Theo is renowned for his knowledge and passion of Italian food and we've worked with him for over 3 years to transform our menu. "My favourite Prima is the Caprina - the combination of the creamy goats cheese, black olive tapenade and San Marzano tomatoes on the crisp semolina base, is unbeatable" Theo Randall. Within a 2 minute walk of the train station and the Swan Theatre and 5-minutes walk of the Chiltern and Eden Shopping Centres, ASK Italian offers a welcome respite for weary shoppers and those out for a quick pre theatre meal. There is free parking after 6pm on the High Street. The large restaurant is ideal for large parties but also big enough to cater for intimate dining. We have outdoor seating in a beautiful hidden garden for al fresco lunches during the Summer. There is a popular kids menu with healthy choices and an indulgent dessert list and we are now serving gluten free pizzas and pastas on request. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

I have often visited this particular Ask Italian and found it to be just what you would expect from a popular chain restaurant. Recently I visited with a group of friends for a pre-Christmas get together. We booked in advance and met at the restaurant. I arrived first and was greeted warmly and courteously by the waiter who found me... More

We visited for a Christmas meal for old work friends. Although we had booked the table wasn't ready when I arrived. It wasn't exceptionally busy but the service was slow. One of the party had to ask twice where her drink was. The food was ok they met my needs but some of the others looked as if it had... More

I booked a table for nine for our work's Christmas lunch. We were very limited for time which I let the restaurant know at the time of booking. They were very accommodating and took our orders beforehand. The timing was perfect, the service excellent and the food very good. A lovely little restaurant.

Large dining area, very quiet when we were there at lunch time on a Saturday. Good was ok but not brilliant and the atmosphere was lacking. I would not go back again.

We booked a table there last night for an early supper before going to the theatre. It was not particularly busy but it took ages to get served. The food was pretty much what you expect from a chain - tasty enough but not gourmet. Not gourmet prices either so that's fine! What did annoy me, however, was that at... More

We visited ASK in High Wycombe at 5.45 last Saturday for a quick pizza before going to the theatre. We had booked, which was fortunate, as the restaurant was very busy with families or theatre goers. Our table for 2 wasn't in the best location - almost in between other tables, so waiters were constantly passing by. Our table also... More

We attempted to eat here at 2pm on a Saturday but were told they only had two members of staff working so waiting times were longer than expected. This is after waiting for 5 minutes to be welcomed. Why on earth didn't they have more staff working on a Saturday lunch time?? Ridiculous.
