Restaurant description

Filled with colourful, contemporary style and with a popular al fresco seating area, ASK Italian Maidstone brings a popular slice of Mediterranean-style dining to the town centre. The open kitchen lets diners see the bustle of the chefs at work, while the stylish bar is a great spot to meet friends for a glass of wine.

Inspired by the Italian way of eating, this ASK Italian in Maidstone celebrates mealtimes as an opportunity to connect with one another around the table. Start with a perfect-for-sharing antipasti board from the ASK Italian menu, and enjoy signature dishes from fresh pasta to crispy stone-baked pizzas with a great choice of toppings. And because there’s always room for dessert, diners can indulge in a selection of beautiful desserts including the chocolate Etna, served with plenty of theatre.

ASK Italian restaurants showcase Italian cuisine at affordable prices, with allergen information on hand if ever you need it, plus a fun kids' menu. 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.

A stylish restaurant that offers up a great selection of Italian favourites, ASK Italian is moments from Hazlitt Arts Centre, and the shops of the Fremlin Walk Shopping Centre.

    Freundlicher Service

    Great menu and lovely food. The service was also good. Unfortunately the combination of noisy children, music and all the banging about from the kitchen meant it was not very relaxing or easy to chat amongst ourselves. The room at the front is more intimate but the large room at the back had a canteen feel to it.

    Restaurant decor was looking a little bit tired, could do with refit. Restaurant staff were very helpful and attentive. Food was good and nice selection on offer.

    7 ladies visited for light lunch after 2 mile walk along the river. Very friendly man who was maybe the manager greeted us. All staff polite and cheerful. We had good service and great food. The salads were interesting and well dressed. The lighter section on the menu very good and unusual. Well above the other chain restaurants in Maidstone, in my opinion.

    Friendly and efficient staff. Food is good quality although olives a bit bland. This was a Friday early evening so a bit noisier than previous trips. Better mid week I would say. My son is vegan and delighted this is one of very few places with a separate vegan menu.

    Everything about our visit was excellent, good atmosphere, friendly staff and great food/drink. Don't normally leave reviews, but just had to say how good this visit was.

    We had croquettes and calamari for starters which were the perfect size and overall brilliant, my boyfriend had the calzone for main and loved it, I had the rissoto and thought it was too big a dish. Overall interior is very nicely done, quite mix and match but works well. I like the little two person booths the most out of all the seating areas. Overall was a lovely meal and not as expensive as I expected. Service was good in terms of being asked if you're okay but there is room for improvement in this area.
