Very friendly staff food was nice and prompt

On The Broadway, next door to the Odeon Cinema, ASK Italian Southend-on-Sea offers an extensive Italian menu in the centre of this bustling seaside 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.
Southend-on-Sea ASK Italian is a popular, family-friendly Italian restaurant less than a minute walk from Southend Victoria Rail Station.

The staff were very attentive on the day. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed the experience. the only tiny negative was that being seated next to the stair case there was a cold draft coming down the stairs

Great food, Great service and great ambience. The prices could be lower, but overall a very pleasant meal. The waitress serving us was goodbye ( especially with one of our group being vegan, there was no fuss at all.) and very attentive, a nice touch being the home made lemonade to try at the beginning of the meal. Would recommend to anyone who would like a delicious meal in southend at a reasonable price.

I always have a good experience at Ask, Southend. The staff are very friendly and service is good. I love the food, especially the butterfly prawn starters and all the seafood pastas.

This booking service was very effective and saved me having to ring rhe restaurant directly. Unfortunately the serice at Ask was a complete let down, we ended up waiting nearly an hour for our first rounds of drinks to turn up. We were a relatively big table but the staff should have planned for this, and the rota should have reflected the fact that there was a large table booked. The food was very good but it came out very staggered, some were finishing when others were only starting, the same happened with the desserts! As it was my birthday I was left a little deflated that the service was just so poor. And to top it all off they had the cheek to put a very hefty service charge on our bill, which in no way did they deserve. The manager then challenged why we didn't pay the service charge in full, she was promptly told about the awful service and rather than apologising she just said 'oh well you don't have to pay it' and then walked off! The so called manager let her front of house staff struggle the whole time we were there whilst she was nowhere to be seen, until she brought our desserts out. Like I said food was great but I'm positive that none of our party will be going to ask again purely because of the service.
