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.

    It was a good overall, we enjoyed it. The veggie options, in particular goat cheese pizza needs a bit improvement though.

    The restaurant is just out of the shopping complex. It is quite a large place with a lot of tables. I found when we first sat down the temperature to be a little on the cool side. The food we ordered was well cooked, hot and service was quick. It was nice to see the chefs actuallly cooking in full view of the public. I enjoyed the food (pasta) and enjoyed the experience. I would go there again.

    Food was excellent
    A little noisy
    Tables very close together
    Staff very accommodating when I was unable to go upstairs as on crutches

    Food was absolutely gorgeous. Wasn't rushed, friendly waitress. Annoying that the background noise so loud we had to keep to asking each other to repeat themselves. I thought it was because it was busy but when we left there were only 3 tables in use but still this loud background chatter not just music.

    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.
