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.

  • (((** 3 July 2017 by Joyce Buchanan from Edinburgh

    We enjoyed our meal tho my al forno pasta pollo was a little dry when it arrived and was very lacking in flavour. One of my guests thought the bread should have been toasted more-he says Prezzo's is much better. Another guest said she felt The bolognaise dish had a strange flavour, perhaps a herb? We were sitting quite near the coffee bar and the constant banging, to empty the beans I presume, was very annoying.

    I went with my sister and niece. We had great service and the dishes were delicious. Our favourite was the Mount Etna pudding, a feast for the eyes and taste buds as well. The waitress was good with my three year old niece and staff in general patient as she was running about. I would definitely go again.

    We enjoyed the food, kids kept occupied with colouring and puzzles, tables a bit cramped - in the back area . This is fine for a lunch or quick meal

    Great service and great value for the 2 kids meals. Food was also excellent and came really quickly. Our waitress was also very friendly and interacted with the kids.

    Myself and 4 friends enjoyed a lovely lunch In Ask Italian, Edinburgh. The food was excellent as were the bottles of wine to wash it down! The staff were extremely good-natured and helpful. A very small annoyance was the music, which was not exactly background music, playing all the time, but that is a very small point and would not stop me from eating at Ask again.
