Yet again ASK came up trumps with a lovely relaxed Saturday night pasta and pizza experience. The food isnt quite gourmet but never fails to deliver good value and tasty pasta and pizza. The service is excellent and the young lady who served us was relaxed helpful and just the right amount of attendance without being pushy. Would recommed ASK... More

I am visiting Cardiff on business and am a regular of the Ask Italian local to me. However I am unsure how things are run in this particular restaurant but there was an apparent lack of the friendly atmosphere which I am used to.

Went here with my family for some Italian grub and we had a lovely time. The waitress was an excellent server, super friendly and gave great recommendations and took great care of us. We had the antipasto salad to start for 3 people and it was a good light starter. Everyone else had a pasta or pizza dish and everyone... More

We found Ask Italian close to our hotel (Radisson Blu) It has a good menu with all Tate Italian dishes one would expect. The staff are efficient. Prices were reasonable and the food was hot. Ask for a table in the courtyard if the weather is good.

We stopped in for a light supper and were made very welcome although we shared our pizza, salad and dessert. The pizza was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. We sat outside to watch the early evening revellers go by - the world and her husband were out enjoying the sunshine!

I feel like it's necessary to write this review. I went on a week staycation and we got lucky with restaurant after restaurant, we had such great service and food until we ate here....I am being genuine when I say that all staff with exception of the manager need to be fired and re hired. All were clueless from the... More

Had lunch here with a friend on a warm summer's day in July. My friend had a pizza and I had the Chef's salad. Both very nice although a little overpriced we thought. We ordered a glass of white wine and a glass of rose and they turned up warm. When we asked the waitress if we could have colder... More

Went to ask on Thursday 24 July as we have been many times before and always had a lovely meal. This time however it had really gone down hill since our last visit. The service was poor and the meal was very average!! I think they have started to go down the fast food route and its such a shame.... More
