We visited as a family with several people. First of all the restaurant was incredibly warm/hot but they did not seem to be able to reduce the temperature with their air con. The building is somewhat interesting but is one big open room and therefore gets very noisy. With couple of screaming kids on the other side of the restaurant... More

Visited Ask in Abingdon again recently and the standard of food is still excellent but the waitress did struggle to deal with all of her tables once it got a little busier. Definitely the best Italian in Abingdon.

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?

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 particularly liked the idea of being able to see the chefs... More

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
