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

A group of 13 of us ate on a Saturday evening. We had very good service from cheerful and helpful waitresses. The girl who took our payment wasn't at all phased by the fact we wanted to pay separately, some by cards some by cash.
The food was delicious and nobody had to wait.

From the front door of this restaurant which isn't clearly signed in the passegway next to it, you seem to walk back down a few steps the height you came in from. Anyway, the food here was absoutely delicious, I can't fault the food at all, we had some goats cheese with some bread and it was hard to tell it was in fact goats cheese it was that good.

What impressed me though is their disability awareness when I booked, I said I'd need the large print menu, the staff had it with the other menus on arrival and understood the need to sit away from the sun.

The only criticism is for disabled access you have to use a ramp up to what may be some closed French doors into the same area where the kitchen is. The disabled toilet is nice and easy to get to but the only problem is if you are a wheelchair user on your own you may struggle opening the outer door, and the main door is tricky to lock as its stiff and missing the metal pole so it might be harder than otherwise so really if you need disabled access book ahead and make sure they have a door open for you.

The staff is not only polite but manage to go out if their way to make you feel at home. The food is excellent and is always perfectly cooked, great advice on the wines courtesy of Maria a spaniard that logically knows the best spanish wines for every meal

Popped in here as looking for a quick bite to eat with a couple of kids. As 1 of our party is gluten intolerant we were pleasantly surprised to see that both the pasta and the pizzas can be served as gluten free. The service was fine however both the salad and the adult pizza we ordered didn't actually taste of anything. Very bland. That said the manager did give us a partial refund.
It could do with a paint too.
Overall, disappointing.

Went out for a family meal - nice atmosphere, very attentive staff, quick service, great food. A slick operation at a good price. Only downside is when the door is opened as there is a real draft that whooshes through the restaurant especially if you are sitting in the window. Cant really fault anything though - great place.
