Newest Review: ... game after-all. Losing the Ask Italian outlet in Victoria London barely will make a ripple considering Ask Italian has over 130 restaurants across Britain - But it does 'ask' questions if the branded food-chain has had it's day? As far as I'm concerned most people enjoy Italian food, the culinary delights isn't determined by seasonal trends that are clear-cut, 'winter' or 'summer' food. And Ask tends to customise their menus according to the temperature outside similarly to the world of fashion - with autumn on the cusp - a harvest menu is vibrantly colourful which is what you expect from the Italians. Rather tempting for a meat-ball fiend,... more

160/162 Victoria Street London SW1E 5LB Opening Times Mon - Thu: 11:30 to 23:00 Fri - Sat: 11:30 to 12:00 Sun: 11:30 to 22:00 - - - As the austere period bites into chains of eateries profit margins, well, when I say bites, feast is a better synonym in today's climate; a taste of reality stimulates my tear-duct a watery response. Regrettably, Ask Italian Victoria is closing on September 28th 2012. The Italian Victoria is in her final weeks; obviously due to customers not entering her to justify an existence or of value. Nevertheless, it is refreshing she isn't doing a culinary closing down sale, or opening after 12 pm on a ... Read the complete review

Restaurant: ASK Location: Leamington Spa I've been to Ask restaurants quite a few times now, but as all my experiences at the different locations of the restaurants have been pretty much the same I've decided to review my most recent visit to Ask which was around 4 weeks ago. Me and my boyfriend decided to visit Leamington Spa for an overnight stay, the hotel which we stayed in unfortunately had their restaurant closed for the weekend due to a refurbishment so we visited the towns Ask restaurant on a Friday night at approximately 6.30pm. For those of you who don't know of Ask, it's a Italian restaurant. Upon entering the ... Read the complete review

I have been to the Ask restaurant in Watford three times over the past year and I have never been all that impressed with it. Then again being of Italian abstraction any Italian restaurant would have to work hard to impress me so perhaps my standards are too high. The reason for my most recent visit was because I had met up with a friend for our monthly catch up and complain about our jobs session. As it was his turn to pay he chose to go here. The restaurant is on a side road off the main shopping street in the town centre. There is little parking in the immediate area but there are quite a few car parks close by. Entering The restaurant was ... Read the complete review

This is a review of Ask! restaurants, who are an Italian chain. My friend and I visited Ask at Castleford Xscape (a shopping outlet, indoor ski arena and cinema). It was the first time I have ever eaten at an Ask!restaurant. ***Cram 'em in*** The side of the restaurant is mainly glass windows so you get a good view of the inside and can see how busy it is etc. we hadn't booked but were immediately shown to a table. My first observation was that the tables were all crammed in and in very close proximity to each other. ***Seating and placing the order*** Our table was a cosy table for two with a chair and a settee on the back wall. Both ... Read the complete review
