Amid the bustle of the city centre, ASK Italian – Birmingham serves up a delicious slice of Italian life, with menus created by celebrated chef Theo Randall. A short stroll from the Old Rep Theatre & the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, the restaurant offers al fresco dining in warm weather, and boasts fresh, contemporary interiors.

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.

ASK Italian – Birmingham City Centre is a 5-minute walk from Birmingham New Street Rail Station, and a 9-minute walk from Birmingham Moor Street Rail Station.

    Service was slow, had to ask to be served but when explained we needed to be at the theatre they sorted our food in time.

    Excellent. Although we arrived 10 minutes early our table was ready and waiting for us. The waitress quickly brought the glasses of prosecco included in our meal deal, and left us to study the menu. She returned shortly and took our order. The wait for each course was slightly long, but not too long considering that the restaurant was full and buzzing. Bearing in mind the latter, the food when it came was great. The deal included a liquor to finish, and the waitress allowed us to change the allocated one to another of our choosing. All in all a lovely dining experience.
