“Pleasant atmosphere, if a little busy but excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

It's a very interesting building and we went here purely because it was close to where my friends work, however, the service was very efficient, the staff were polite and friendly and the food was very enjoyable without being extremely expensive. Definitely a nice place to visit for an occasion

“Thank you Smiley Ask Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

I NEVER write reviews but the staff were so fantastic I had to break my own rules. Sun was shining and the lovely smell of the ovens wafted toward you as you walked in. My OAP dad had a little medical emergency and they were blinding. Can't praise them enough-nothing was too much, so calm and kind. I think it was the manageress who was the administering angel. Food also absolutely excellent!! Happy days. The service was excellent and the kindness genuine. Rare and much appreciated. Thank you smiley Ask staff :) xxx

“A lovely evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I've been here a few times, but my last visit was so good I wanted to make sure I wrote this review! I've always enjoyed my visits, but it's Ask, nothing special, right? What sets this one apart is the amazing staff. The food and atmosphere are good but the staff, in particular one lady called Sam I think really made our evening special. They were so accommodating and we were really looked after.
There are lots of places around similar to this, but I will happily pick this dining experience over the rest.

“Very nice indeed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Very nice inside, looks like a converted bank. Service was very nice, we used our tesco club card vouchers, so meal worked out very reasonable. The food itself was lovely and the Olives, some of the nicest I have ever had.

“Friendly & efficient - food good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We popped in on a busy Sunday evening & were made to feel very welcome, even though the waiter was rushed off his feet. The décor is clean & pleasant, with a lovely family feel & there is a good range of food on the menu (including several dairy-free desserts - very unusual for Italian!)
The food arrived in good time & was boiling hot. All four of us had different mains & desserts & agreed that all were delicious, with sensible quantity, as well as good quality.
Well above the average Italian & the best Ask I've visited.
