Me and my girlfriend popped in for dinner before a meeting I had on Wednesday afternoon (15/3). Food was good - I had the Rigatoni Piccante, the other half had penne pollo de Casa. Service was poor though - both waiters had no personality about them, very 'flat' service with no smiles at all! Will not visit again!

Warm welcome. Fast service, Food was what you would expect from a chain which is a shame. Had King prawns to start. Over cooked and the bread burnt - but that's how I like them and really enjoyed it! Pancetta and asparagus tagliatelle for main. Tasty and the extra black pepper made it very nice. Seating was my only issue!... More

Went for dinner at the nice little Italian last night the staff are very bubbly and helpful with the menu. They catered for me being a vegetarian and were able to adapt the menu. Brilliant! The wine was amazing and the bread was out of this world!!! All for just £20 each delicious and thank you

The food was great for a working lunch. However the service was extremely slow we had to get up ourselves for most things, including to ask for the bill and pay at the bar. The waiter had to be asked for the same thing several times and considering the restaurant wasn't busy at all it was quite frustrating. Overall the... More

I like Ask and haven't been to this restaurant for about 3 years and was really disappointed. Having once been quite a cool restaurant for couples and adult groups it now seems to be very family orientated with no atmosphere. The food was OK, but service was shockingly poor. We waited an hour for our food then when we ordered... More

We were staying along Hagley Road, about 10 minutes walk away. I had looked at some restaurant reviews on Trip Advisor, for several places and decided to try this one - had not been to an Ask Italian before - we were very pleased with the choice, in fact we ate here for each of our two nights stay. There... More

It was the first time I had been to Ask Italian restaurant and it will not be the last. The manager Andy was the most helpful, the food was really nice, and the service we received today was second to none. The occasion was to celebrate my niece's birthday and Andy and his team certainly made it a celebration. Many... More
