Three ladies, easy booking on line, well we had a lovely couple of hours, the choice was plentiful, we all had mains which were 10/10. Desserts ditto and lovely wine. We were served by Glenda whom we specifically asked her name so we could champion her. All the staff were so polite and could not do enough for us. Our... More

We have been in ask Italian Oxford two days ago and we had a lovely time. The waitress was Glenda, we had an amazing service. Everyone was really helpful but expecially Glenda (our Italian waitress). For sure we will come back again.

It is really difficult to fault this little restaurant. The staff were attentive and friendly to the customer and each other which was nice to see. The food was fantastic. My only slight grudge was the cleanliness of the floors, the stairs leading up to the toilets, and the toilets themselves. Although I have seen a lot worse. In general... More

Lovely staff, very attentive. Great asparagus & panchetta carbonara, and loved the cocktails. Thought 'the warm one' starter was a bit dry and not for me but everything else was great.

We arrived here after being rudely turned away from a different restaurant at which we had a reservation. When we arrived here without a reservation they seated us immediately, took our orders within minutes and were eating within half an hour the food was great, the service was polite and courteous and we had a lovely time!

My first stay in Oxford and we were struggling to get a table (no room at cote). The manager at Ask was exceptional, he cleared tables to make room. Every table was thoroughly cleaned between each booking. Food was quickly prepared I had belly pork with lovely steamed brocolli and my colleague had a callezoni. I would definitely recommend Ask.

My Wife and I have been patrons of Ask for many years and only had cause of complaint once. We had dinner on 24th January and to say the least disappointed. The service as usual was very good with the Manager being very attentive. We had a pleasant shot of real lemonade on the House while we perused the menu... More

We booked ASK for a Sunday evening at 6 expecting the place to be very quiet. In fact it was full as the theatre had a performance starting at 8. Even though it was full the service was good and we started with a generous helping of doughballs. the pizzas were all very good and overall we would be very... More
