ASK Italian in Watford is a place for great food and warm service. Think fresh bread made to tear and share. A glass of fine wine worth deserving of your time. Delicious main dishes prepared the traditional way. Everything we know and love about Italian food is served straight to your table. Take a look at our Watford menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

Saturday night birthday visit.

I've never been to an Ask before and while I do feel that it is a little pricey. I did enjoy it and it felt like a nice treat for my birthday. The staff were friendly and attentive. I had the cheese and meat starter and shared some bread. Lasagne and Pizza shared for main. It was all very... read more

Myself and 8 of my colleagues decided to dine at Ask in Watford last minute. We were told 30 minutes for a table which we were prepared to wait. We then asked if it would be possible to order two bottles of wine while we wait. The person who we asked was rude and we got told we are too... More

My fiancee decided to go here for a meal very much on-a-whim, as we were in the area overnight before going to the Harry Potter Studio tour the next day, and we were not disappointed!! The food was gorgeous - neither of us had ever been to an 'ASK' italian before and we both agreed it was one of the... More

We arrived in Watford late and were so relieved that the restaurant could take us without a booking. The welcome was friendly and the food was fabulous! Freshly made Italian food and very plentiful. We don't have this chain in Ireland - it would be very welcome. Great dinner. Would definitely go back again if we had the chance.

This is a chain but there is nothing wrong with it. It's average which is what I would expect. Sometimes you might have better experiences than others but this visit the service was efficient and friendly, the food was ok and it's a nice enough, well located place just of the High Street. It was perfect for us walking home... More

Had a great meal today at Ask, Me, my husband and daughter had a great lunch here today the starters were fabulous and their new sourdough based pizzas were very good. The staff were attentive without being pushy.

Been there twice. Can get really loud. Nice food, nice service. Avoid being seated by the windows (which happens if you haven't booked a table for a busy night), they are not tightly shut, so it gets cold. Average bill for 3 adults is £100.
