Second visit in two weeks and delighted with the food and the service. We particularly like the king prawns starter and the Sea Bass main course. All the staff very helpful and cheerful.

Close to Trinity and Exeter Colleges, ASK Italian Oxford serves a range of traditional Italian food in the heart of this historic University town.

Inspired by the Italian way of eating, ASK Italian 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.

Opposite the New Theatre, and within a 4-minute walk of the Oxford Playhouse, Oxford ASK Italian is perfect for a delicious pre or post-theatre meal.

    Table was laid neatly and service came very swiftly throughout! Doughballs went down a success with everyone and then the Risotto con pollo i funghi in the white wine sauce was stunning. 4 of the party finished with the Chocolate Etna which tasted lovely but the chocolate shell on top did not melt with the toffee sauce and was even hard to break with a few whacks of the spoon! Unfortunately, I was unable to use my tastecard which wasn't very useful as I was not made aware beforehand (not on website or email). Other than that small glitch, we received a highly pleasant and enjoyable experience of the restaurant and will certainly continue to eat here on a regular basis!

    We regularly dine at Ask and on this occasion it was particularly useful as the menu had good choices for our vegan guests

    Very poor service, mediocre food, had to ask several times for the bill so was late to the theatre as a consequence
    Won't be dining there again I'm afraid

    Very slow service - we waited 45 minutes for our main course, while other diners were served and finished their meals. The waitress apologised and said it was because ours were cooked from fresh. She also took the bottle of wine off the bill.

    Pleasant staff. An average experience otherwise. We were first shown to a table for two near the back of the restaurant. Unfortunately this was next to the ground floor toilet and there was an unpleasant smell from the drainage pipes. We asked to be moved to another table which was central and much better. Food okay, though not as good as I had hoped for. We had starters and mains, and as we had a Tastecard 2 for 1 offer we decided to splash out a little. The sea bass was very oily and served with fried new potatoes. My husband had the belly pork which was substantial, and served with fried new potatoes and al dente broccoli. Both my starter (prawns) and my main course were slightly overcooked. Slow wifi connection meant we had to wait a long time for Tastecard app to load so we could pay the bill. Would go again, but would go for something more basic like pizza or pasta. We chose this restaurant because of its proximity to the Ashmolean, so it was convenient for us, and it was very busy when we arrived for our 2pm reservation. Most people were eating pizzas which looked good.

    I dined here yesterday with my husband and daughter. We had already been to other ASK restaurants during our trip around the south-west of England and once again we found excellent and friendly service. The food is delicious and the menu can easily accommodate different dietary requirements from vegan to dairy and gluten free. It's a pity they do not offer a wider variety of fish options among the mains. Nevertheless, the menu is varied and you are spoilt for choice. Great place for families as children are made welcome and can spend time drawing until the food is ready.
