With a prime location in the heart of Stevenage Leisure Park, this ASK Italian restaurant has recently gone through an extensive refurbishment. We've created a restaurant with a distinctive new look inspired by modern Italian design. And with the help of our expert friends, including awarding-winning chef Theo Randall, we've created a menu that features a range of simple, classic Italian food and an all Italian wine list.

More a cafe than a restaurant

Service was poor and the surroundings did not remind you of an Italian restaurant. Food was really average, not bad enough to send back but you would not rave about it either. We would not return.

Late Saturday night dinner with the girlfriend, must say we both weren't impressed, service was slow considering the restaurant wasn't busy,we had starters (garlic bread to share) took over 15 mins to arrive. Followed by mains which took even longer.

The food was fresh and tasty. The service was excellent. We were served by Alicja who was well informed about the menu, and therefore able to assist us with what we liked. She is a smart friendly lady who also has a great sense of humour. We will definitely return.

Arrived on a Tuesday evening around 8pm an was greeted fairly promptly by a lady who told us it would be a half hour wait for our food. We thought this would be fine and were seated. We were given menus and our drinks order taken. Over half an hour later our food order hadn't been taken and despite chasing... More

We normally know what we're getting from ASK but lately they have changed there recipes and it's ruined the food. There pasta is over cooked and has not bite to it. Saying that the service is quick and friendly. But if the food isn't right we won't be going again.

We were a large group but had ordered beforehand so didnt really expect to wait over an hour for main courses. Only a few in the group had starters and they were eaten quite quickly. Was busy but an apology for the wait wouldnt have gone amiss! Pizza was nice when got there and would have hung around for desserts... More

Visited Ask Italian on 6th June with my mother and 2 brothers for her birthday meal. What a terrible experience. Firstly the food was absolutely terrible. My first dish was completely over powered with chill, one piece of pasta set my mouth on fire for the rest of the evening and I got my family to also taste it which... More
