It was nice to return to Ask after a long hiatus, as we used to come here quite a lot. A few short years ago, it declined terribly: service was really poor, the food awful and the restaurant badly needed a revamp.
Since then, the brand has had a makeover; the service was friendly, the atmosphere was nice, the furniture has been updated (and is comfortable – take note, PizzaExpress) and the food is actually really rather nice.
I had a generous, pleasant glass of Primitivo and paid just £13 for my meal thanks to a 25% off voucher. We will go back again to double-check its new vibe, and to try its pasta options. We love Carluccio's, but are often disappointed with the watery tomato sauce. I'm assured by the Ask waiter that the sauce here is thick enough to feel like a proper sauce, so that's what I'll order next time! He was also very polite and professional, always apologising for interrupting our conversation.
Quick note: If you're on the Three network service, you'll get no service here, so remember to check in when you leave!
