This may be a chain, but all the food is cooked to order and beautifully presented. Try the Fig Pizza - different and tasty. We went with the wine recommendation from our server and I must admit - They were right!

You get what you pay for with ASK in terms of food but this is a particularly good venue as the building is pretty spectacular. Good with vouchers, without I think its over priced but food it always very good. Large beer at £6 is poor and exposes the corporate label that sits behind this kind of restaurant. Abingdon is...

Visited on a Sunday lunchtime. Luckily got in early and it soon filled up. Staff were friendly. Food was good (but you can't really go wrong with pasta and pizza). But it was drafty near the door. Got a 30% discount on the main courses online, so very happy with the price. Will go again.

Early evening family meal for our 8 year old grandson with his cousins and sisters, good food, good service and reasonably priced. Only complaint is that the only beer available is Peroni at about £6 for a large bottle.

We had good food and our waitress was smiling and helpful, all was going very well until we asked the bill. It took more than half hour just to pay, and the place wasn't even full ! With two young children , waiting for so long just to pay is frustrating. The manager who sorted the payment in the end... More

Visited tonight on the way home and as is often the case here it was quite empty, despite this they still managed to screw up a simple main course order (Milanese with spaghetti turned into spaghetti bolognase with a breast of chicken stuck on top). The supervisor had difficulty explaining to the kitchen staff what was required (language problems) and... More

We have been coming here for the last year. Our first vist was excellent and they haven't disappointed us. Every vist is a friendly greeting and fantastic food. We've never had a complaint not even a tinny one!!

We popped in for lunch one weekend without booking. The staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly making recommendations on the menu. The food was very nice and the bill very reasonable. The building is really nice and it would be ideal if the mezzanine are could be made an additional dinning space, maybe for couples away from families.
