The quaint Buckinghamshire town of Amersham plays host to the excellent ASK Italian restaurant, situated in a charming building along the cobbled streets of the town centre. 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.

Good... except significantly over-charged

I like this restaurant (look up previous reviews...) - nice venue/ambience, generally good service, and I like the menu on offer in this chain. However, on this occasion I was seriously over-charged - and it took quite a bit of effort to get them to put it right. Shouldn't be that hard? I... read more

I visited Ask Italian few times. This time I decided to hit on Amersham, I had pasta with pesto and took extra chicken, that was delicious! Definitely I'll come visit again!

I popped in without a booking and had to wait for a table, but it was well worth the twenty minute wait. The house wine was mellow. The seafood pasta was perfect and consistent with the same menu item in other Ask Italian outlets. They tend always to be good. The service here was good. The atmosphere was convivial with... More

I am sure this a lovely place to eat but when we went on Friday April 17th at 2210, despite the restaurant advertising closing at 2300, we were asked to wait when asking for a table whilst they checked with the kitchen. As we didn't want to be rushed we decided to leave. There were tables available - maybe they... More

Our drinks came quickly as did our food. we all had pastas which were very good!! our waitress Alice was even better- polite, enthusiastic ,friendly, helpful... More

The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars was because it didn't have that 'wow' factor, but this is reflected in the prices which are very reasonable. Not to mention, there are so many discount vouchers you can find online for this chain to get your meal even cheaper. Despite it not having a wow factor, the service... More

Snap decision to come here - but not a bad one ;) service is excellent, smiling and happy staff making us feel very welcome. We arrived early and I expect it gets very busy so advise to book. Lovely restaurant and courtyard. Food is really good - what you expect from a chain. If your looking for a casual meal... More

Had to write a review due to the wonderful service we received on the Sat night before Mother's Day. I am gluten intolerant but also allergic to millet which unfortunately is used in a lot of GF pizza bases and pastas. I asked upon being seated if there was millet in their GF pizza and pasta and there is a... More

This ASK was in a great old building - we were at the back with very high ceilings. Food was enjoyed by everyone - good selection including decent fish. Service was friendly .
