Hello you lovely lot, it’s been a while! Today I’m bringing you some deliciousness, we all love pasta, we all love pizza, we all love anything filled with carby goodness, amiright? Thought so! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for…well, forever you will all know about Ask Italian, I’m hoping the answer is yes? Ask is my go-to place to eat when I feel like a big bowl of pasta or filling my face full of pizza and a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited over to try their brand new spring menu and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint.
Whenever me and Paul eat out we always get jealous of what each other order so to save any arguments we decided to share the Antipasto Classico to start and order two pizzas so we could tear and share for our mains, plus we were feeling like fatties that evening so added some courgette fries to the order along with some beers and the best Nojito Mocktail I’ve ever tried!!
There were so many options on the menu that took our fancy but as I said, we were feeling like pizza that evening, Paul went for the Vegan Super Green which was made up of a pea puree base, topped with Rocket, tender baby kale, asparagus, peas, red pepper pearls, spinach, balsamic red onions and Vegan Mozzarella, it was lovely and fresh, if you love your greens you need to try this! I went meaty and tried the Salami Misti which is a beautiful thin, crispy base topped with Milano and Fennel Salami, pepperoni, smoked prosciutto, roasted peppers and balsamic red onions, it was nothing but delicious, not going to lie, our eyes were bigger than our bellies and we had to box some up and take it home but who doesn’t love pizza for breakfast?
The staff were extremely friendly and attentive and made us feel at home throughout the whole evening which is always something we look for when dining out. The interior wasn’t to be missed either, ivy hanging from the ceiling and walls, disco balls, green tiles and lots of exposed wood, pretty much everything I find aesthetically pleasing in a room. All round it was a lovely visit, great food, great company, nice and quiet, and the new menu exceeded our expectations.
Have you tried the new Spring menu at ASK Italian? I’d love to know what you tried, I’ll be heading back soon so let me know your favourite dishes.
