Italian

Our ASK Italian restaurant in Oxford is on George Street, in the heart of this most beautiful of cities. We recommend visitors wander the various Oxford university colleges (Balliol, St John’s and Nuffield are our closest), as well as Carfax Tower, Tom Tower, Oxford Castle, Christ Church Cathedral and the High Street with the Church of St Mary the Virgin. All that sightseeing will build up an appetite and at ASK you’ll find a diverse menu of traditional Italian dishes and contemporary cuisine. Take a break from shopping at the nearby Clarendon Centre to grab a real Italian coffee, lunch and a light bite, or to sample our refreshing gelati. Oxford’s nightlife ranges from pubs to cultural, so book an evening meal here, accompanied by fine wines and prosecco, and then catch a show at the Oxford New Theatre across the road or any of a number of livelier nightspots.

The food was great and the service very good as we were on a tight timescale before our booking at the Theatre. Overall the value was good but the cost was bumped up by the price of drinks.

However having shown them the booking on the phone, they were able to get us a table quickly and with no fuss, even though the restaurant was very busy. Felt this was a minor hitch and the staff dealt with it well. Food was very good and arrived quickly, one of our guests felt the portion size on their ravioli was a little small but the rest of had no problems, Deserts were really good!

The food was good but nothing spectacular, pretty much what I'd expect from a high-street chain so we were happy. The restaurant is in a good central location, and even on a Sunday night was busy and fun to be in. Loved the mural and the disco ball!
