    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

    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.

    This is the second time I have visited this restaurant. Service was slower than before. it took a fair amount of time to take our meal order, when finished it took another lengthy time to clear the plates and then return for out sweet order. otherwise the food was beautifully presented and very tasteful.
