ASK Italian Basingstoke is just the place to enjoy a delicious Italian meal after a day of hectic shopping. Housed in the bustling Festival Place Shopping Centre, the restaurant is a 7-minute walk from Basingstoke Rail Station.

Inspired by the Italian way of eating, ASK Italian celebrates mealtimes as an opportunity to connect with one another around the table. Start with a perfect-for-sharing antipasti board from the ASK Italian menu, and enjoy signature dishes from fresh pasta to crispy stone-baked pizzas with a great choice of toppings. And because there’s always room for dessert, diners can indulge in a selection of beautiful desserts including the chocolate Etna, served with plenty of theatre.

ASK Italian restaurants showcase Italian cuisine at affordable prices, with allergen information on hand if ever you need it, plus a fun kids menu. Premium beers, including Sicily’s most famous craft beer, Messina Bira, are available alongside Italian wines, cocktails and soft drinks, like a refreshing craft lemonade.

Opposite the Vue Cinema, Basingstoke ASK Italian is also perfect for pre and post-theatre meals.

    Where to start? Our main courses arrived at different times due to incorrect taking of our order. Two of us had finished before the other two had received their food. The wine carafe was COVERED in dust! One of our desserts got lost and one drink never arrived.
    The bill was adjusted at the end. However, I must say the food was very good. Just the timing that was up the creek.

    Food was brought to the table with a smile and the service was in good time from when ordered to when it arrived. Food was good as always.

    Nice friendly service, left us alone but still attentive. Does get noisy in there but adds to the vibe.

    Loved the puddings and the starters especially the pasta mains as well

  • (((** 27 May 2016 by Karen Swyny from Basingstoke

    Main (Sea Bass & most expensive item on Menu) was Average - this could have been any white fish & was over cooked, the dish it was served & obviously cooked in, was white beneath all the brown burnt on juices from cooking, not great presentation.
    The Dessert - Chocolate lava Mountain - was lush!!
