2 for 1 at ASK Italian - Abingdon

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.

    Passing through Abingdon on our way home, we found this restaurant using the Tastecard App. We don't really know Abingdon well, but even at 20:00hrs, we found parking a bit of a problem.
    I ordered sea bass al forno and my wife ordered pork belly porchetta (two of the more expensive items on their menu).
    After at least 5 minutes, our waitress returned to tell me that there was no sea bass, so I ordered the pork belly too.
    The place was quite busy, with a few large groups, but the restaurant staff still had time to stand at the bar, chatting and enjoying a drink as they watched over the restaurant.
    After another 30 minutes, a waitress came to our table to say that our meals would be ready in about 5 minutes. No offer of anything to tide us over. About 10 minutes later we were told our meals would be ready "in a couple of minutes". Apparently there had been a problem with the new potatoes and they had had to cook a new serving from scratch - quite a demanding challenge for a restaurant! Still no offer of anything to tide us over, but we reckoned we could survive another couple of minutes after waiting so long.
    Eventually our meals arrived. We said it had been a bit of a long time coming and the waitress started arguing with us about how long it had been. Fortunately I had noted the time when we had placed our initial orders, but she wasn't having any of that.
    The pork belly, new potatoes and gravy were served in a sizzling cast iron bowl on a wooden board and the greens were served separately in another bowl.
    The pork belly was really delicious, but the potatoes were pretty hard - cooked just about enough to be able to cut them. The problem was that the pork completely covered the potatoes and gravy in the bowl, with no room for the greens and no plate to put it all on.
    Then all the lights went out. We thought it was a power cut, but it was just to take candles to one of the birthday party tables.
    Lights back on and we wondered if we were supposed to tip the meal onto the wooden board (as one might do with some Italian meals), but then the gravy would run all over the table. With the staff standing around the bar, my wife went to ask for a plate, while I struggled with my bowl. She was given a plate - cold, of course! I managed to splash gravy over my clothes, but by now I was so hungry that I was ready to eat it with my hands.
    Lights out again, while another birthday table celebrated.
    We were wondering how to handle our dissatisfaction with our experience and asked for our bill at which point the waitress told us they wouldn't be charging for our meals, which was appreciated, but we wish they'd told us a bit earlier, rather than leave it to the last minute. We thought it might be helpful to suggest how they could improve things for anyone else just coming in for a meal, but our lippy waitress cut us short, snapping that we weren't having to pay for our meals (i.e. we had therefore forfeited any right to make further comments).
    As we left, the young manager asked if we were now OK and we said that while we appreciated their gesture, we didn't appreciate being told by the waitress that as we weren't paying, she didn't want to hear what we had to say. Although he said he'd speak to her, we had the distinct impression that he was intimidated by her.
    In summary, if you're going to Ask Abingdon for a birthday party, you may well have a jolly good time, but if, like us, you just pop in for a meal on your way home, don't expect very much, except for a very long wait, occasionally in the dark! "
