Description: ASK Italian in Lewes is a place for great food and warm service. Think fresh bread made to tear and share. A glass of fine wine worth deserving of your time. Delicious main dishes prepared the traditional way. Everything we know and love about Italian food is served straight to your table. Take a look at our Lewes menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

Nice enough restaurant. Food was ok and decent value for money, didn't have to wait too long for each course, facilities were clean and so on.

It was getting towards the end of service by the time we got there, so the waiting staff were a little inattentive, so we had to wait a little while to get our bill etc., but on the whole it was fine.

Thank Joe E

This is a really smart, modern, bright and colourful restaurant. The staff were great and the food was excellent. Our drinks were pretty slow arriving, but that's a minor quibble. The only real downer was that the diners on one of the tables in the restaurant were speaking so loudly that the entire place could here their conversation - I kid you not, and this was in a full and buzzing Saturday night restaurant. Anyway, it was a great meal and we would thoroughly recommend the place. Massively better than the last ASK we visited (in Lymington, which has since become a PIzza Express!).

We visited on Bank Holiday Monday. Plenty of space and freindly staff. Nice looking restaurant. Good meal ( calzone,carbonara,goats cheese salad) Maybe a bit pricey but we had Tesco vouchers to use. Toilets clean.

For some reason Lewes seems to have a disproportionate number of chain Italian restaurants, and ASK is no exception to the rule. The atmosphere is pleasant, given a relatively recent refurbishment, and there are some lovely window seats fronting onto the High Street. Unfortunately, the positive attributes stop there. On a recent visit to ASK one of their staff members was having a celebration with family / friends. They sat down at the table next to us and were waited on endlessly, with the host taking a seat at the table to talk with the group. Basically everyone else in the restaurant could have disappeared and I am pretty certain that nobody would have noticed. This group had their orders taken before us, and their food out before us, and we sat in relative obscurity in the corner. When our food did arrive it was less than astonishing, certainly for the price that we paid.
I will admit that this is one experience and that it might not be reflective of the norm, but the we left feeling unwelcomed and unimpressed.
