Im on a little roll with Italian Chain food at the moment having rediscovered Bella Italia which is opposite Ask in Birmingham. I had lunch here yesterday and I couldn't fault the food or the service. Staff all very pleasant and a colourful and pleasant ambiance within the establishment. All Good at Ask!

Our first visit here was memorable. First class service, good menu choices and excellent service. We were greeted by our lovely waitress Tiffanni, who efficiently brought us drinks, advised on menu choices and generally looked after us royally. Juicy olives were followed by calimari and aubergine starters, all delicious. Mains of chicken risotto and sea bass followed and were exceptional.... More

I've always found Ask to be one of the better chains, having had some good experiences here. Perhaps, we've usually had a voucher and it seems like good value for money. We visited on a Friday evening. It was busy, well handled by the staff. The service was excellent. I like the decor and ambience here to. I guess my... More

I have been to Ask quite a few times and have always had a really good experience. Everything I have had has been lovely. I had the chicken and mushroom risotto this time and it was yummy. Also had two mango mojito's and they were really nice too. I have previously had a salted caramel chocolate bomb with ice cream... More

Despite having asked several of the waiting staff to check when our meals would be served as we had a show to go... More

We've been here before and enjoyed the food so went back before a concert. We arrived at 17:30. Had to ask 3 people to order food (should have taken the hint then). It wasn't even that busy but there only seemed to be 3 waiting staff on and 2 people floating round giving out lemonade..... Starters eventually arrived for my... More

I'm always a bit tentative when a restaurant serves vegan pizza because the cheese is never great but this was amazing, I'd eat here all the time if I could. The vegan menu was extensive and my boyfriend really enjoyed the normal menu as well. Service was quick and I'll definitely be coming back!

Booked for a Saturday lunch for 4 people. The restaurant was very busy but they quickly found us a table. As this is very busy the background noise is high. They have an extensive menu of Italian Food with plenty of choice. The staff were excellent and soon took our order. I never mind waiting for good fresh food and... More

I and my friends visited the restaurant on Saturday for a brunch, as I worked in this restaurant I love to come back here from time to time. We were warmly greeted by smiley and always happy Inga, who introduced us to a new menu and gave complimentary drink shots to try. We were served by Moe, who was very... More

We booked in advance and our waiter was Kris, Dylan also helped. The service was amazing and so was the food, we were a family of five who had 4 starters and 5 main courses altogether. When I couldn't finish my pizza Kris offered to put it in a take out pizza box. Dylan and Kris's eye brows were absolutely... More
