Recent visit to Ask Italian in Shrewsbury, this was a first visit and also the last, the meal was Fettuccini with pork and beef mince, or spag bol without the spaghetti. Served luke warm,and getting colder by the minute, at a cost of £9+ it represented poor value for money, poor quality and generally sub standard service. If that was... More

Six of us ate here as part of a family occasion. We had a variety of starters, mains and deserts. All the food was great and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful even though the restaurant was busy. There are definitely better restaurants in Shrewsbury, but if you are after a restaurant which caters for groups of people...

I feel that I have, today, eaten the most underwhelming meal in my life at Ask, Shrewsbury. When you charge the prices you do for ingredients that would not cost more than £3 to £4 pounds, I do expect a 'taste sensation'. It was a plate of bland mush. You need to go and buy yourself a good cookbook or... More

I went to Ask last night as part of a birthday meal. The waiter was lovely - enthusiastic and attentive - and my companions' food looked tasty with good portion sizes. However, my own meal was disappointing: spaghetti pomodoro doesn't need to be greasy I wouldn't have thought, but there was a horrid layer of orange grease over the food... More

I can usually rely on Ask in Shrewsbury for a good meal and reasonable service, but occasionally they slip up and this visit was such a time. Reserving a Saturday table for 2 p.m. is great, you know that the busy lunch time rush will have already been served and you hope that will negate any minor niggles. On arrival... More

Deliveroo have it wrong in their menu" I pointed out the eat in restaurant menu had it on. I was told well we don't do dip sauces and... More

Over all the food was ok but disappointed with the mince in my lasagne I felt it was poor quality. Also the chips were over priced oven chips . Also the bench we were seated at was very dirty. Staff were lovely and very helpful . The puddings were delicious. Used Tesco club card vouchers so didn't mind too much... More
