Excellent food and service at reasonable prices. Good size portions, served piping hot. I asked for my pasta dish to be cooked without chillies which was no problem at all for them. We were attending a show at the Albert Hall just a short walking distance away.

It's my second time here in this restaurant and as last time I had another great experience tonight. The place was not too busy and we were lucky enough to meet Angela (our waitress) again. I had the intention to go for a classic Margherita pizza but Angela suggested us to try their new Alto pizza that uses a thicker... More

Was in London for Easter 2017, and got there the fresh pasta with aragosta and the night after the pizza alto with burrata! Delicious! The real top came with dessert and their chocolate gnocchi filled with Nutella! Simply amazing! No wonder why italian kids grow up with Nutella: it's natural selection!

This was near our hotel and we were tired of pubs so we tried Ask Italian. It ended up being our favorite meal in London! They even brought a special dessert for a family birthday.

So to Ask for a pre theatre meal, good friendly service, nice atmosphere, good location, meal of Calamari, and a nice pizza with a couple of glasses of wine. All tasty and enjoyed by both of us. Overall it was exactly what we wanted, and at the right price. Would be happy to go again. One downside, we booked ahead... More

I booked a table late and got my 25% Promo Code. A group of 7 incl a toddler, we arrived on time ... but .. had to wait 15 mins The staff were very apologetic but it was a late reservation and for quite a sizeable group. I have been there on previous visits to London, always make a point... More

Ate evening dinner with work colleague. Starter of mushrooms was poor mains was better. Service quite quick and reasonable price. It was ok but wouldn't be one of my first choices. If you want proper Italian this isn't for you as a chain.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
