ASK Italian in Stevenage Old 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 Stevenage Old menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

will not come here again

Came here for dinner with friends. The starter was so small I was quite angry that i had to pay the amount of money asked for it. The main of fish stew was quite frankly appalling and not only was the food poor we waited nearly an hour for the privilege. When we complained we were given a glass... read more

This restaurant is modern and tasteful, the service was prompt but not pushy. The food was excellent and very tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant and if you are looking for good Italian food this is for you.

OK, I have never been the biggest fan of chain restaurants such as Ask or Pizza Express, but because we had some vouchers we decided to give it a go. I thought it would be alright, but it was average at best. Starter was average, my pizza was average, my girlfriend's pasta was borderline poor, but the dessert was not... More

We dined here on a Thursday evening and although it was fairly busy and we had not booked we were seated quickly and served with care and attention. The food was well cooked and presented. The staff were very efficient and friendly and looked after all our needs.

I eat in this restaurant probably once a month and have never been disappointed. I pretty much always use a voucher and the staff accept it without any problems. I have dined at lunch time with husband and in the evening with friends and have always had a pleasant experience. Last week I booked a party of 12 ranging from... More

We were a large party but booking for this meal was made much harder by differing information from the venue all of which served to make it almost impossible to book. Perfect example- we were told we had to be seated at a certain time-when we rang to check a day before the time had moved substantially earlier-for no reason.... More

We ate here as a family on the evening of New Year's Day. It was very quiet, just two other tables occupied. The service was ok. This was probably the blandest carbonara I've ever eaten and even copious amounts of Parmesan could not give it any taste. It did contain ham but the tiny shreds were hardly visible.

Pretty average meal. Two main dishes were unavailable and the chosen meals, Carbonara and Spaghetti Ragu were quite bland. We have been here a number of times before and enjoyed the food but this was not a great experience for a New Year's Eve meal.

An absolute disgrace. I booked some months ago for thirty people for a 70th birthday, and confirmed everything including layout over the two days before. Family and friends travelled from all over Britain. Not only did it take two hours for the food to come out, when it was served it was inedible - certainly NOT a taste of Italy.... More
