ASK Italian London Grafton Way
We’ve carved out a little slice of Italy, where food is cooked with gusto and served with warmth. Our diverse menu features fish and meat dishes as well as more traditional Italian fare, and we offer a great selection of wines and prosecco.
So afternoon or night, in between shopping or before a night out in London or a show at the nearby Bloomsbury Theatre, visit ASK Italian.
Upon arrival, we were greeted promptly and offered a choice of places to sit (not all restaurants are so accommodating). Service was excellent and staff friendly. There is a good choice of starters and mains (we had a folded 'cheese' bread with onions to share, followed by pizza which was surprisingly small for a 'larger' pizza and chips (our favourite)). This particular restaurant has two floors, with the lower floor mainly used for large groups, so very versatile.
The place is very small on the main level so unless you sit in the corners there are people and staff walking past all the time. There is additional seating downstairs but we didn't go down there. The food was good but we had to get the staffs attention to be served. Overall, not a bad place though.
Friendly and prompt service whether dining alone or in a group. Good choice of starters which are of generous proportions (of which we selected several in place of a main course) and side dishes (love the chips!). Food quality has been consistent on all visits and we will return.
Despite reservation, ended up downstairs. However, there was only a party group occupying the space, so there was plenty of room and good choice of places to sit. The staff were friendly and service was prompt. Three starters were ordered (no main), which were all good, especially the chips! This was followed by ice cream (also good).
Will definitely return
