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.

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

Myself and my partner went to this ASK chain today and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were extremely quick and very polite. The food was delicious and served quickly. I would recommend for couples and families.

What can I say ask has everything you could want in an Italian restaurant but most of all it tastes fantastic . I love spicy arribiatta if it's not on the menu I've asked and it was made for me now that's what I call service.
