Description: ASK Italian in Southend-on-Sea is a place for great food and warm service. Think fresh bread made to tear and share. A glass of fine wine worth deserving of your time. Delicious main dishes prepared the traditional way. Everything we know and love about Italian food is served straight to your table. Take a look at our Southend-on-Sea menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

I wasn't looking forward to dining here with my other half, as we have had more than one awful dining experience at the ASK in Rayleigh, which we can safely say we will never go back to. Ryan was our host for the evening and was fantastic. He was a breath of fresh air, honest about the meals potentially taking a while to prepare, due to the restaurant being busy, and checking on us throughout the evening. The food was delicious and the wine was flowing. How can the ASK in Rayleigh even be connected to this one?

Been going to this restaurant for many years now food always hot and well presented., Like the new look, staff are always friendly and on the ball. They can not do enough for you, always looks clean when you enter. and of course now that it has been done up. Food is always hot, waiting time is also good, nothing worse and going to a restaurant were you wait and wait and wait but not here 9/10 well done.

Will be back.

Ask has been one of my favourites for years, absolutely love this place. I recently went for lunch with my mum and it was lovely. The new decor is modern and fresh, the staff are faultless and so attentive without being too overwhelming! The service was quick, friendly and nothing was too much trouble even though the place was getting busier! The food was really nice, we both had salads and they were so delicious! Salad is definitely not boring here! It was all reasonably priced also and quite often you can get good vouchers for Ask so if you get one, you have no excuses not to go! You will have a lovely meal!

Noisy because of cafe like decor absorbing no sound.
Mussels starter very poor,wizened little rubbery mussels and very chewy croutons. Fish stew main was better but needed salt which had to ask for as not on table. Wifes mushroom pasta was said to be good. Service was good but a little slow.

Last Saturday went to Ask Southend where we had the upstairs private room for my friends birthday. The service was excellent from the main person taking all our orders to the waitress staff. The food was very good and piping hot. Nothing was too much trouble. A very good evening had by all - Thanks Ask. - I would point out that our main host who's name i did not take was just brilliant, so patient as well, which when their are 15 of you all talking, drinking etc is much needed.
