ASK Italian - Salisbury

1-3 Castle Street, Salisbury, SP1 3TZ

For some time I made the mistake of thinking that no group of restaurants in the region of 200 locations could hope to maintain the quality for which I was looking. Then one day I decided to put my prejudices to the test, walked into Oxford ASK Italian! and discovered that I could not have been more mistaken. Their claim to serve freshly prepared quality food in stylish and comfortable surroundings with friendly and efficient service proved to be absolutely spot on. Since then I have also discovered that a degree of consistency seems to operate throughout their restaurants, and that certainly does take some achieving, implying a degree of management that is enviable. They are perfect places for an impromptu snack, a bit of culinary grazing, or the full works, and families are catered for particularly well.

Their trendy décor usually comprises tiled floors and black furniture with well set tables that sparkle with glass, silver and spotless linen. Ten starters include crostini and bruschetta, followed by a range of salads, pasta and al forno, oven baked pasta, some with chicken.

The pizzas are stone baked in the oven, creating a crisp, authentic and delicious flavour, and they all come topped with mozzarella and tomato. Calzone introduce a touch of opulence with a folded pizza baked in the oven and topped with garlic butter and melted grana padano, whilst inside expect to find chicken or a vegetarian mix.

Amongst the specials may I warmly, in every sense, recommend the polpette al forno, a popular Milanese dish of beef meatballs sautéed in garlic with fire roasted peppers, caramelised onions, chilli and pomodoro sauce, with penne pasta, topped with cheese and oven baked.

An enticing selection of desserts list banoffee pie and tiramisu amongst them, and the coffee tastes like coffee, which may sound banal, but I guess you know what I mean.

Thanks to a well selected wine list speculative drinking can offer handsome dividends, even with prices rarely crossing the £20 barrier.

REVIEWS OF ASK Italian - Salisbury

Greg (10 October 2008)

There is no doubt that the food at the ASK - Salisbury is superb. There is an outstanding selection of the finest Italian food, which is as authentic as you could hope for. We have been a number of times, and found the price average of £22 per head with wine, spot on. Unfortunately our last visit, which was a special occasion, was spoilt by appalling service from one staff member. However, I am convinced this is a one off glitch, and that you can book this restaurant with great confidence.

Jen (31 August 2008)

My partner and I absolutely love this restaurant and eat there all the time. The menu is really good and the members of staff are always friendly and welcoming. The service is always quick and efficient. The food itself is lovely, good range and affordable too. The terrace area is really nice to sit out on if the weather is good. This place is highly recommended.
