    Absolutely gorgeous food, third time I've been....... Treat the hubby for his birthday- and the building and staff make it too.

    It was 16:30, the restaurant was quiet. Unlike previous visits where the children's starters were served on arrival this wasn't the case on Sunday. This was a main driver for placing a booking with Ask rather than a competitor as keeping hungry little people occupied whilst the adults choose food is a great selling point.
    The food when it arrived was good. The child's portions especially were generous. However the special pizza 'Natale' wasn't hot. It may have been out for some time waiting for the rest of the food to be served.
    Service was OK, but could have been a little more attentive. Some staff were taking the opportunity of the quiet period to have a break, but I don't think this was detrimental to the quality of service, just some things could have been a bit faster to arrive to table.
    Overall a decent experience, but one which didn't match previous expectations.

    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.
