    Ask food is fine (nothing amazing but the apart from the prawn starter) but the service is outstanding and the building is beautiful. Whenever we go we're never rushed and kids are always treated really nicely. It's not stunning authentic Italian food but it's good and always a lovely experience.

    Always enjoy the food at ask italian, its tasty and well prepared. Our 'server' was helpfull and considerate, shame that the service charge is not determined by customer and given straight to server but added into the bill as we were a party of eight I assume, in a nutshell a good place to eat after a day out in York.

    Lovely friendly staff, the food was very good, sourdough pizzas were highly praised. Great service.Will definitely go back. Was using tesco vouchers which made it even better.

    The pasta was very though it had been sat a little while before serving. The pizza was nice though.

    I have been to several Ask restaurants before including the one in York. My opinion this time that the food was pretty poor, not to the standard I was used too.

    I was very underwhelmed by the food, nothing seemed authentic here and the food was no better than a microwave meal in my opinion. Very disappointing

    We booked a table for 5 to include our 5yr old granddaughter. We were celebrating my daughter and son-in-laws 9th wedding anniversary, so this was a special occasion. The service at Ask was exceptional and the meal was a delight. There was something on the menu which tempted all of us including our granddaughter, and the atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed and friendly and yet the waiters and waitresses were attentive and ensures that our food was to our liking and that everything was to our satisfaction. Altogether an extremely pleasant and successful occasion and ASK Italian will certainly be our preferred location for other celebrations.
