2 for 1 at ASK Italian - Cardiff

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.

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.

    Lovely restaurant. Prawns & Lasagnes wonderful, as always in Ask. Unfortunately our friends Frutti Marr Ling was served in a cold dish & mussels were cold. It was replaced with a lovely hot dish, & an amount taken off the bill. All in all we enjoyed the lunch time treat. "

  • Virgil said: "No-cchini
    From their "Classic pasta" section of their menu I ordered "RIGATONI CON ZUCCHINE E PESTO", which is described as "Sautéed courgettes in a creamy pesto sauce, generously topped with ricotta salata cheese."
    Forgive me for making a naive assumption, but I imagined being able to enjoy some "zuccine" (courgettes). I was to be dissappointed: apparently they consider 8 small pieces (less than 3cm x 1cm, 3mm thick) to be sufficient. Elsewhere I have had this dish served with strips of courgettes, in sufficient quantity to be the feature of the dish. The sprinkling I had was barely a light garnish. I should have read Trip Adviser first, where the same experience is sadly listed.
    OK, so now the waitress asks "Is everything ok?" We politely explained why I had barely touched my meal, and that our drinks were hardly touched too; we'd only been there 5-10 minutes. She apologized and removed the drinks (less than £5) from the bill - still expecting to pay the rest. We did, but do you think we'll be returning or recommending this place to our friends? "
