Nice Italian

We visited here last week as we were staying in Didcot but ventured into Abington to find a restaurant. We noticed this establishment that looked fairly busy as there were a few people dining outside in the little outdoor part. The restaurant appeared quite clean and well maintained. We... read more

The hot chocolate at Ask Italian is always very nice. Generally, the atmosphere was very nice and the building is an ex-church, or looks like a hall. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and amazing 'caldo cioccolato.' what's not to like?

It's a pretty standard menu so you know what you're getting and what's going to be available. Good kids menu. Lovely decor in that wonderful historic building. However the service is always always poor at best. Such a shame.

Both my girlfriend and I are massive lovers of Italian food so we have eaten here on numerous occasions during the last year, since we moved to the Abingdon area. The food and service has always been very good and I have never had any complaints. We do usually book online and reserve a table as they can be very... More

Ate here for a Valentine's meal after making a reservation online. We were seated straight away and served quickly. There was a choice of a set menu but we chose from the usual main menu. The food was hot. The service was friendly. I would eat here again if I were in the area.

Have been a few times, and I really like this Ask outlet. The building is beautiful - in the summer, I'd like to eat outside, watching the world go by... The food... is Ask food. You know what's on the menu, you know the prices - you either like it, or you don't! I happen to like it. Always check... More

As we were having our starter she brought some bread over for baby so she... More
