“Disappointed ”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

I came to eat with my friend. We had booked a table in advance and when we got to the restaurant we were shown to a table in the corner by the door. It was really draughty and cold so we asked the woman serving us if we could possibly move as the restaurant seemed empty. She responded saying "we are fully booked" so we tried to grin and bear it but after a while we realised the restaurant wasn't filling up and we were still wearing our coats we come to this restaurant a lot and have always enjoyed it in the past and for the first time considered leaving before we had even ordered our food but asked a young girl if we could move again, she said that was fine and showed us to another table. It seemed like no trouble at all, contrary to what we were told at first. After our meal we enquired as to who the woman who refused for us to move was and we were told she was the new assistant manager. The meal was fantastic and the service over all was great. But to receive the service that we did from your NEW assistant manager was very disappointing. We feel the rest of the team took our feelings into consideration a lot more. Maybe something to look into?

I visited today with my young daughter, and was met with a warm welcome.
The girls working the lunch shift were very pleasant and helpful. Our food arrived in good time and was very nice. The children's menu was good value and of a good size. As was my pizza!
There was plenty of people dining at lunchtime, but we were looked after very well. Thank you.

“Good food and service - will come again!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

It's Friday evening, you don't want to cook and you don't want to drive miles to a restaurant...
So we headed into Petersfield armed with an Ask voucher for 25% off food. I hadn't been to Ask since shortly after it had opened in Petersfield and at that time wasn't impressed, so I was pleased to see how much it had improved in the meantime.
The food was good, with lots of choice and the service was friendly and efficient - they reckoned they were a little slower than usual as they had two trainees - we hadn't noticed.
We were in the back of the restaurant which is a little plain, the front of the restaurant looks more cosy, it was ideal for the quiet meal that we wanted though!
A really pleasant experience - next time we don't want to cook on a Friday night we may well visit again!

“Good service”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Had a Valentines meal here and the service was really good, we had reason to complain about one of our mains not having enough prawns, the waitress and the manager were very good and had more prawns cooked for us. We also had two complimentary glasses of Prosecco too. On the whole good food too. One of the better restaurants in Petersfield.

“Resonably priced child friendly restaurant”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We have been to this restaurant on several occasions in recent years. It is part of a chain of Italian restaurants specialising in pizza and pasta. However there are other Italian dishes as well.
We took our grandchildren and there is a three course menu with choices for younger diners which was enjoyed by all three of them. The adults had a pasta carbonara and a spicy rigatoni. Service as pleasant and reasonably efficient and the total bill including 2 glasses of wine was £51. A reasonably priced child friendly restaurant.
