    From the outset the experience wasn't great. On arrival had wait 10 minutes for someone to come greet us after being seated for 20 minutes was asked for drinks order and food. Starts came pretty quick however the mains took over an hour to arrive and several chase ups to staff.
    We were told they had a couple of big parties in wfev food finally came my cal zone was cold do was sent back with an apology and option of having it reheated or a fresh one prepared I opted for a fresh. A free drink was offered wguch waa accepted. The replacement meal came after 10 minutes and to my disappointment was colder than the first I spoke to server and apprised the situation and said I wasn't happy and that would just like the bill and wanted to go as was very dissatisfied I don't blame the waiting staff at all they were great but the food was not good and the wait unacceptable hence I would not visit a ask Italian again.

    I've never had a poor experience in any Ask Italian restaurant that I've visited, but this one was exceptional, probably due to the setting. The building was Assembly Rooms previously the features of which have been retained, in particular the high ceiling, grand pillars and chandeliers.
    The restaurant was busy, but by no means full as they have many, many tables. The waiting time between courses was just right and our waiter was attentive. The food was wonderful (as expected).
    Overall a really enjoyable visit and one that we'll repeat on our next visit to York.
