Description: ASK Italian in York is a place for great food and warm service. Think fresh bread made to tear and share. A glass of fine wine worth deserving of your time. Delicious main dishes prepared the traditional way. Everything we know and love about Italian food is served straight to your table. Take a look at our York menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

This is an amazing location, the food was quite good and the service good at the start but diminished after we received our meals. Had to ask 3 times for the bill. Great place but I'm sure there are better Italian restaurants around.

Stopped in for a late afternoon/ early evening meal. Quiet or arrival but busy by the time we left. Historic Assembly Rooms converted well into a restaurant. The menu is a good size, not too much but not too little. Doesn't appear to be any specials or at least not advertised. We had a sharing platter which was lovely followed by pizza for one, pasta for another and kids menu. The latter was really good value for a chain restaurant. Happy enough with the price (even more so with a 25% off food voucher). The items for sale at entrance cheapen the place a bit though.

Popped in for lunch and although pre booked a table we were made to wait, obvious not enough staff for the busy service? When we were in the queue we spotted 6 empty tables that just needed clearing, 10 to 16! Waiting???

The food was OK but spoiled by the Service the atmosphere could be amazing but at times a bit like a school dinner hall due to the high ceilings and number of kids.

Shame as there is potential, as good and venue are worth a visit but need more staff and you can keep apologising and saying sorry for delay I’d rather better service from arrival.

Beautiful setting but that's all I can say... Asked for the following :-
Good/Warm Food, Polite and Good Service, neither was available
The title of the restaurant is 'Ask' Top Tip...For a Great Evening 'Ask' for another RESTAURANT. One of the worst evenings I have ever had. Topped of with a waitress from hell, who thought throughing menus at two 14 year olds was acceptable behaviour.
Go somewhere else or grab a take away. Trish, Elizabeth, Emily, Eileen and Maggies.

The venue is stunning. Our waitress was very friendly and professional. The food was excellent. All in all a really high quality experience and well worth the money. Our meal here was a highlight of our short break in York.
