|Children's Menu & Colouring Card|
|Cody's Luca & Lucia Finger Puppets|
|Children's Menu Penne|
|Children's Menu Cheese Pizza|
The choice for us adults was immense! There is something for every taste on the menu from chicken, pasta, pizzas and salads. It took us a while to all decide what we wanted and I went back and forth a few times, we had out starters/sides served with our main meals. This wasn't a problem at all and the restaurant were happy to hold them back and cook them a the same time as our mains.
|Baked Dough Balls £4.95|
|Chips & Garlic Mayo £3.50|
The dough balls were amazing, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. You have the option of having Fontal cheese & chilli, pepperoni or a mixture of both. We decided on the mix, you dint know the flavour until you bit in! The chips were equally as good and came with a lovely garlic mayo dip on the side, Mr D loved the mayo and asked for more, which they were happy to provide.
|Linguine Carbonara £9.75|
|Chicken Caesar Salad £10.25|
|Stromboli Pizza £9.95|
Mr RTR opted for the linguine carbonara, its one of his favourite dishes and he said he wasn't disappointed with this. It was so creamy and the pancetta was really cripsy, its a brand new item on the Ask Italian menu and we highly recommend it. You can opt for a half sized portion with a side salad for £1.50 less than the menu price if you have a smaller appetite. I went for the caeser salad, which is another new item on the menu and it was delicious. I was surprised at how big the bowl was, it was an impressive portion for the price, I really enjoyed it the chicken was cooked to perfection and it had just the right amount of caesar sauce on. Mr L who is 12 ate from the adult's menu with us and he opted for the Stromboli pizza, this would be ideal for sharing between 2 people as it had 8 slices. It had a nice crispy Italian base and Mr L said it was the best pizza he ever had and he's fussy!
|Children's Menu Chocolate Pizza|
|Children's Menu Tip & Top Ice Cream|
|Children's Menu Ice Lolly|
There are 4 options on the children's dessert menu and we tried 3 of them. Mr D opted for the chocolate pizza, a sweet dough topped with hazelnut chocolate spread and strawberries, it comes with a pot of mini marshmallows & sprinkles to decorate. Mr C opted for the tip & top ice cream, 2 scoops of icecream in a flavour of their choice, a meringue, pot of strawberries and a pot of marshmallows. Miss S opted for ice lolly which is available in strawberry or tropical. The 4th option is Frutti which is strawberries, raspberries and grapes.
The kid's desserts went down a storm, I think you can tell from their faces that they loved them! All their plates were empty. As part of the kid's menu they also get a babyccino, which is the perfect way to round off their lovely meal.
|Children's Menu Babyccino|
Now the kids were all sorted we had the task of deciding which of the amazing desserts we would like to round our meal off with. It was a really tough choice for Mr L and Mr RTR, but there was only 1 choice for me when I saw the menu.
|Grande Gelato £4.95|
|Honeycomb Cheesecake £5.95|
|Ice Cream Profiteroles £5.95|
I just had to have the Grande Gelato, meringue, strawberries and ice cream are 3 of my favourite things, the dish is topped off with a dash of cream and was heaven in a bowl. Mr RTR went for the new recipe honeycomb cheesecake, with crunchy honeycomb, white chocolate and a scoop of vanilla gelato it looks fab. Mr RTR said it was really good and he isn't a big dessert fan. Mr L opted for the ice cream profiteroles, filled with creamy Italian ice cream and topped with hot chocolate sauce, a delicous mix of hot and cold, Mr L loved it.
We can't fault Ask Italian, the service was fab, the food was nothing short of amaing and the staff were incredible. Especially Kelly who looked after us for our entire visit, nothing was too much trouble, she chatted with the children, got us everything we needed, arranged an additional table for Mr L and was polite and courteous throughout. Infact even the satff who weren't serving us were polite and friendly and made a point of saying hello and goodbye. Our meal for 6 people which included 3 courses and 2 drinks each came in at less than £100, which works out at roughly £15 per person. I think it was well worth it and we will definitely be visiting again in the near future.
