I went here with my best friend for a meal. We try to make the effort to do something like this every couple of months or so, and we weren't disappointed by ASK in Tunny Wells. The staff were friendly, we both had calzone con carne picantes and thoroughly enjoyed them with a bottle of Sauvignon. The desert menu has... More

I've eaten in ASK Italian a few times over the years but hadn't eaten here recently so thought I'd give it another go. I had the meatballs for starters which were rather overcooked and quite hard, The main course, pizza, was also mediocre with nothing that would lift it out of the 'basic' category. We didn't bother with desert as... More

This is a nice but very busy restaurant. The tables were very close together so you had to be careful not to back into the person behind you. The food was nice, hot and served quite quickly after ordering. The slowness was in taking the order, clearing the plates and bringing the bill. In the end we gave up out... More

Had a really tasty chicken and pancetta salad. There were eleven of us and the service was brilliant. We didn't have to wait long for our food and nothing was too much trouble. Recommend this restaurant for a lovely, reasonably priced, meal.

Sat down to eat at 1.50pm on a Sunday. Lots of people were finishing off their meals. Having arrived with 2 children, I was surprised to have to ask for children's menus. They were given adult menus and after waiting 4 minutes, I realized no one was actually coming back with kids menus for them, so asked for some. Order... More

We popped in here prior to a visit to the cinema. Staff and service excellent, food hot, tasty, perfectly proportioned, reasonably priced and delicious. Apart from the weird 1970s decor, I couldn't fault it, and will definitely be back.

Have been to ask a few times for quick pizza lunch. The dining room is pleasant and airy. It's popular with those with young children during lunch time. The menu has lots of simple pizzas choices. The kids pizzas are half moon shaped versions of the adult ones. Service is pretty good as well quick enough.
