Restaurant description

Opposite the bustling Broad Street Mall in the centre of town, ASK Italian Reading offers a delicious Italian menu in a pleasant contemporary setting.

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.

Close to the Oracle Shopping Centre and the Market Place, Reading ASK Italian is perfect for an authentic Italian meal after a busy shopping trip.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    The service was excellent and my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the meals. I have eaten at this restaurant a few times and found the staff very helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

    Food was good however service was appalling. When we arrived only 3 other tables were occupied and our order was taken promptly, but as the restaurant started to fill up it became very apparent that there was only one person serving , o believe he was the manager. As we had a show tonsee thay started at 7 I had to keep asking for the dessert and then the bill and then to pay ! A disappointing end. Probably won't use that before a show again as they found it hard to deliver a main and a a dessert in just under 2hrs for 2 people !

    We really enjoyed our food - I had the pasta with prawn and lobster and my sister had the pork belly. We shared a lovely sundae for pudding. However I wasnt impressed that our first choice of sea bass wasn't available, and neither was the salted caramel sauce for our dessert. These things should have been advised before we made our choices.
