Restaurant description

Looking out onto the famous Piccadilly Gardens, ASK Italian Manchester is a prime spot for authentic Italian dining. Rustic pizzas, classic pasta dishes and fine wines feature throughout the menu, and there is al fresco seating that is a great setting for relaxed meet ups with friends.

Inspired by the Italian way of eating, this ASK Italian in Manchester 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 bright, contemporary space for wholesome Mediterranean recipes, ASK Italian Manchester sits on the border of the city's Northern Quarter, known for its vibrant nightlife. The famous Palace Theatre is also just a 10-minute walk away.

    Friendly staff and lovely food. We had the £15.95 for 3 course offer and the food was great.

    It was a very disappointing experience. The service was dreadful, we waited 35 minutes between finishing our garlic bread starter and being served the main course. No apology or explanation given. We saw our food sitting on the food servers for 10minutes before being brought to us. As a result it was barely warm, but given we had waited so long, we did not have time to request hot meals and so just paid and left. No one enquiried if everything was alright. At £15+ for each main course, it was a complete waste of money. It was Sunday evening and therefore, the restaurant was not overly busy.

    Good restaurant and helpful staff. Bit disappointed because I had booked 2 courses for £9.95 at 17.15 but when we arrived we were told that only that applied at lunchtime.

    I had a really good night at ask italian. I was particularly thrilled with the huge choice on the vegan menu, which is unusual. Service was a little slow but it was a very busy Saturday night so we didn't mind too much. I would recommend this restaurant to people. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was great! I will definitely be returning
