2 for 1 at ASK Italian - Southend-On-Sea

Enjoy tasty Italian cuisine when you visit ASK. When ASK first opened in 1992, the founders had the simple aim of offering authentic Italian cuisine in cool, modern surroundings. They saw the need for a new dining experience, where diners felt that they had been somewhere a little different to what they were used to. Fast forward over two decades, and ASK has become an extremely popular eatery nationwide, achieving exactly what they set out to do.

As well as great food, this eatery prides itself on having impeccable service. They ensure that all members of staff are fully trained in good customer service, and that they all have a full understanding of the menu. It is important to the restaurant manager that the diner feels at home, so if you have any questions, queries, or just some advice on what to order, just give them a shout.

Whether you are taking a short break in the local town or you are making a special visit to ASK, you will not be disappointed.

Important Information

Please Note: Your tastecard entitles you to an exclusive 2 for 1 offer across all Starters, Mains and Desserts; extra toppings are not included, but may be purchased at usual menu price. Specials, Sharing Starters, Sides and Sharing Desserts are excluded from this offer. The cheapest or equivalent dish of each course from each menu section will be discounted from your bill. Your tastecard is valid for 2 people, although multiple cards can be used for your party - therefore 4 people dining would require 2 tastecards. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotions or discounts. Set Menus (including our Kids Menus) and takeaways are not included in this offer. Your tastecard is not valid on Fridays, Saturdays, Bank Holidays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day and throughout December. There is no requirement to book, although at busy times it is advised to avoid disappointment. This offer is not available in ASK Italian The O2, as well as the Finchley, London Park Street and Wells branches.

    Really easy to use the tastecard in this branch. The food always arrives piping hot. I would recommend the prawn bruschetta starter, which is always a firm favourite alongside the seafood ravioli.
    We always dine here using the tastecard and cannot fault the food. "

    Enjoyed the food but the service very slow. Waited a long time to be asked if we would like a drink. Waited a long time to get our drink. Then took a long time for food to be ordered and a long time to get out food.Then same again when asking for a bill when finally receiving the bill they forgot to put the taste care discount so had to wait a long time again for them to re do bill. Food was lovely just shame about the waiting around especially as we had a booking at the cinema and was tight for time which then meant we had to rush our food and rush to get to the cinema "

    Use of the taste card and food was good, how ever we waiting over half an hour from our arrival to get our starters and another half an hour until our mains. It seemed like we was forgotten about. There was only 1 other table other the us in the restaurant so I felt really let down. I hate to think how long we would have waited if it had been busy. "

    I took my boyfriend here for dinner for his birthday, and had planned to go to the cinema afterwards. Our starters and main courses were lovely, however, once our plates had been cleared away, it seemed were completely forgotten about.

    We had over an hour before our film was due to start, so we planned on ordering desserts. However, after waiting 45 minutes for a dessert menu, we soon gave up on that idea, as we didn't want to miss the film. We then had to ask for the bill twice, before we finally received it another 25 minutes later. At which point, we'd missed the film and our evening plans were ruined. Other customers seemed to have no problem ordering food and paying their bills. "
