Visited today as the restaurant we wanted to go to was fully booked. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent and, even thought they were busy, our food came really quickly and was beautifully and freshly cooked. The pizza I had was delicious and pleasingly different and tasty compared with the usual 'chain restaurant' stuff. The place was clean... More

Food was ok, but drinks very expensive. The table we were allocated was too close to the door which caused a cold draft with people entering and exiting. The service was very poor, after the main course we were ignored and so left without being offered a dessert or coffee. It was our first and last visit!

Went with my family, found a table without problem. Had starters, mains and puds. Food was lovely, drinks were properly chilled and service was excellent. Young waiter had only been there a week, most impressed. Will be returning very soon...

Had lobster and seafood for lunch here with my wife. Although the restaurant was nearly full and obviously very busy we were served in quick time. I had the fresh past and it was delicious. I always prefer to have fresh pasta and there definitely was real lobster in with the dish. All in all a tasty lunch completed in... More

It's a chain - expectations are always low but sometimes service times are the deciding factor. Didn't exceed expectations, fresh prawn pasta was okay but nothing to rave about. Prawns fairly poor quality, obviously frozen but you expect that, I've had better quality at my local curry house. Good service though, both guys Italian which was nice and no doubt... More

Went here on a recent holiday, never been before so was interested and excited as to what I was going to eat. What a shame my excitement was wasted. Was seated and orders taken at 1:10 in the afternoon. Now I do understand it does take some time to prepare food, however a 45 minute wait for starters is not... More

We had a lovely meal today. I had the Calzone Apollo and my daughter had a fresh salad. Both were freshly made and delicious. Service was quick and friendly. We have never been to an Ask Italian before, but we will definitely be back for more.

I have been here several times and never been disappointed. We came yesterday for my friends birthday, and considering how busy the restaurant was, the staff were very efficient and friendly, and the food came out in brilliant timing, and we all ate the lot! Thank you! Xxx
