Opposite the bustling Broad Street Mall in the centre of town, ASK Italian Reading offers a delicious Italian menu in a pleasant contemporary setting.

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.

Close to the Oracle Shopping Centre and the Market Place, Reading ASK Italian is perfect for an authentic Italian meal after a busy shopping trip.

    Poor and extremely slow service. I have eaten in many Ask restaurants and this is the worst.

    Service was friendly. Food was very mediocre. Would not return

    Variable and variable food. Was shown to a table by an unsmiling waitress where the chairs were still damp. A colleague did help out by wiping them with a serviette when I complained. He was more friendly than the waitress who never did smile. Most of the dishes we ordered were good, but my friend said that the filling inside his Calzone hadn't been very well cooked, which spoilt it for him. Not sure about the decor in the restaurant - seems a bit likes a kids play room. Wen there because of a special tastecard deal, wouldn't recommend it otherwise.
