Quality of food good and the service friendly and efficient. Basic pasta dishes cooked well and served by welcoming staff. Nice touch, the complimentary home made lemonade.

Busy Saturday night visit at 7.30pm. No table immediately but returned after 30 mins and seated immediately. Drinks offered and served quickly by very efficient and attentive staff as we perused menu. Typical Italian fayre and the lasagne and risotto (chicken and mushroom) were delicious and piping hot, all accompanied by a very agreeable Chianti. Only downside was stair rail... More

The place was packed when we arrived, but staff managed to squeeze us into the last available table. So glad. I had the lasagna, one of the best such meals ever. Super delicious.

We went to this restaurant on Friday night - without booking - and we were given a lovely table and treated to a beautiful meal in a really lovely atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and attentive and our meals were top notch. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely be going back.

Evening meal here. Waitress energetic and efficient, and pleasant. I had antipasto classico (3 pieces of pressed dry meat and a lot of leaves) and rigatone (impossibly salty). The waitress cheerfully brought a toned-down one and two large glasses of water. Ask used to do meat dishes but for some years now it has been pasta-based only. The premises are... More

Had evening meal with my wife on a Tuesday night. The food was good with a wide selection of gluten free options. The food was well cooked and than some other Ask Italians we have to. The staff were attentive and friendly. The only real downside was that the toilets was upstairs but it was not really an issue.

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.
