Close to Trinity and Exeter Colleges, ASK Italian Oxford serves a range of traditional Italian food in the heart of this historic University town.

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 New Theatre, and within a 4-minute walk of the Oxford Playhouse, Oxford ASK Italian is perfect for a delicious pre or post-theatre meal.

    Service good, ambience fine. Mussels and fish seemed rather pre-cooked

    Dining experience was fabulous, the waiters were extremely polite and the food was to die for! Although we had to give back one of our pizza as it arrived cold, the waiter was very apologetic and gave us another freshly made, hot pizza within 10 minutes...I was very impressed and grateful as I knew this could go either two ways and they could quite simply refuse. I will most definitely recommend to all my work colleagues, friends and family.

    I really enjoyed your very good Italian food and the brilliant service. You have tables of different sizes for different number of people. You waiters and waitress always keep charming smiles to my family. My son had never said he was full before having dinner in Ask Italian. I like all the pizza in your restaurant. My wife love the baked prawn.

    Excellent, friendly service. Very good food at reasonable prices.

  • ((*** 18 October 2016 by Robert Prior from Oxford

    While we quite enjoyed the food the terrible acoustics (downstairs) meant we had to virtually shout to each other to be heard amid the noise of other diners. This totally spoilt the experience. We also thought the food was quite pricey. In particularly the lasagne was poor value given its relatively modest size.

    lovely friendly meal - efficient and smiley staff

    Booked online. Table was ready when we arrived - the staff were very friendly and very efficient. We were 4 adults and 4 children and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back!
