“Great Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Went on a Thursday evening. I was surprised at how busy it was. The staff are very friendly and we had excellent service. The food was very good and we enjoyed our visit very much. There's a good choice on the menu. We will return again very soon.

For people with mobility problems there is parking just outside the restaurant, or there's a lift from the ground floor of the car park up to the restaurant and there's an easily accessible disabled toilet in the restaurant.

“Good service, Average food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

My family and I visited this restaurant on Friday 17th Aug.
Staff were friendly and accommodating for our child.
The let down of the evening was the food. The garlic pizza bread was overlooked and the seafood pasta dish my partner had, was cold and Only had 3 prawns. No mussels just shells! It was bland and boring.
Our sons main meal of spaghetti was much better and he loved it.
Overall, good service, shame about the food!

“Will be back again and again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

We tried ASK one night and we loved it! We went on a monday night and it was surprisingly busy! One waitress and one bar girl on the waitress was amazing. I had lasange which was beautiful. My favourite thing is the chilled glasses! Been back many times again just for that lasange! Clean, quick, beautiful.

“Disappointing "Chain" Food and Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Ate lunch here whilst shopping. We didnt expect much as we have previously been disappointed with "chain" restaurants - and we got what we expected.

Service passable at best - not too many smiles - functional rather than friendly. Didnt feel like a happy team.

Very average standard of food and two of our four meals were only barely warm. The portions were also on the small side and we felt it overpriced for what it is.

We won't be returning.
