2 for 1 at ASK Italian - York

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

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.

    Very helpful staff when using the taste card even though we're not booking beforehand.
    We ordered carbonara pasta and forgot to tell that we're Muslims and not eating non halal food, so the pasta came with pork, the staff specially ordered another carbonara pasta with seafood. Definitely will come again. Highly recommended. "

    I've been to this Ask at the old assembly rooms about 7 or 8 times now, and it's my own fault for going back each time. The food at Ask is pretty standard, it ain't bad but it ain't that good either. But what really let's this place down is its service, or complete lack of should I say. I've never had a good experience at this Ask when it comes down to service, they take forever to clear tables, forever to take drink orders, and then make you feel that you may never see these drinks. And then after that it's a battle to see the bill. I've been on busy nights, and I've been on quiet nights, and the service is never different. It breaks my heart for such an amazing, historic building in York to be used on a chain like Ask. "

  • "This restaurant is set in a magnificent old building near the centre of York. It is a very large restaurant and there has never been any need to book a table on any of our visits. There is a large menu with all the usual dishes you would expect of an Italian restaurant. The service is good, if a little slow at busy times, but you never feel rushed to vacate your table. The food we have sampled has always been very good and the portions are large enough for the biggest of appetites. All in all, good value for money. Richard   "
