I would just like to say how impressed I am with your Northampton branch. I have visited many ASK Italians on my journeys and have to say the atmosphere at Northampton is the best! We ordered 2 seafood linguini dishes which were lovely along with the young girls who served us. Thumbs up from me! I will be back

As ever when we visit Northampton we have a meal in Ask - we're never disappointed. Our waitress Sophie gave us fantastic service and although she was quite busy we never had to wait for anything. The food was delicious, especially the King Prawn starter (so good I was tempted to have more as a desert!!)The Bolognese and linguine were... More

Great range of options for food and drink. Good customer service. Good children's menu. Clean toilets. Good accessibility, lift available to access basement floor toilets. Basement smelled bad - fish market stench.

We visited as a group of 7 for a birthday meal. The staff were friendly and appeared to be trying their best but there were long delays between each course. 6 of us had virtually finished our starters by the time the 7th was dished up (possibly forgotten about). After finishing our desserts, we must have waited at least half... More

Came for a meal with my partner and it was faultless. We got seated upstairs but there is by no means any lack of atmosphere. The service we received from Nick and Paris was impeccable- they were so friendly and cracking the jokes all night, whilst doing their job by recommending dishes on the menu and which wine we should...

I visited Ask with my mum and sister for a pre-theatre dinner, so we needed a place with tasty food and good service. Unfortunately, our waitress just couldn't really be bothered from the beginning and considering it was only 7pm on a Saturday, they had already run out of one of the meals - surely this is bad planning for...

It was Saturday night so lots people around and staff were up and down the stairs serving food. Starters were excellent,main courses were good. Pudding was something chocolatey so no bad. We had planned on an Etna but they had run out. Nice meal £5.55 for a pint of Peroni meant we didn't have any Peroni!
