Description: ASK Italian in Durham 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 Durham menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

We went on a Friday evening without pre-booking and were found a table in a fairly busy dining room. Staff were efficient and helpful, place was lively but not too noisy and a mix of families, groups and couples. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. This was our third visit and standards have been consistently positive.

We were on our christmas shopping day and decided to pop in for lunch. We were greeted warmly and sat down. The waitress was polite and took our order but we waited a long time for our food and had to constantly cath the waitress eye to get get drinks. The food was okay but the wait rather spoilt our lunch.

Food average (except for the fab prawns starter) service very slow, very busy, pleasant server. Ok to use Tesco vouchers... wouldn't like to think we'd paid cash. Reason for no repeat business is I don't want to leave the restaurant smelling of the kitchen - downside to open plan!

We visited this restaurant with a large group of friends, although the waitresses were very pleasant, the starters arrived in a reasonable time, I had calamare, it was okay, the main course took forever to arrive, some of the mains were over cooked, the pasta special was dreadful, the pasta was stuck together, there were two pieces of processed ham stuck together, the sauce had obviously been microwaved, my husband had risotto it resembled porridge, our bill was £500 in total so not cheap, we will never ever eat in this restaurant again, we have both been quite ill today with upset stomachs, the only saving grace was the good company we were with, they need to do an undercover boss on this or it will go to the wall!!!!
