About Ask Italian Ashby De La Zouch
Located in the heart of Ashby and just a few minutes’ walk from all of its main attractions, Ask Italian is a fantastic place to settle down after a long day of sightseeing. The modern and clean-lined restaurant with exposed brick and elegant touches makes for a great place to relax in the evening with friends or go on a romantic date.
Specialising in casual Italian dining, you’ll be sure to find all the much-loved classics here. The menu kicks off with two antipasti options and a host of starters. Try the pea and ricotta soufflé, meatballs picante or customer favourite, garlic bread with balsamic onions. With such a varied starter menu you are sure to find something that will tickle your fancy.
When it comes to mains you can’t go wrong with the ‘most loved’ pollo piccante con pancetta – seasoned chicken breast served with a variety of vegetables and fontal cheese. However, if you are looking to indulge a little (and why wouldn't you be), the slow-cooked beef brisket Bolognese will fill the spot. We can guarantee this Bolognese is a little more exciting than your at-home mince meat classic.
Finish off your meal with something sweet off the dessert menu. Go for its super popular chocolate Etna if you just can’t resist a chocolate treat. Better still, try the pistachio and olive oil cake. It may not be the first flavour that comes to mind when you think of cake, but the award-winning recipe is sure to impress.
Ashby is best known for its relaxing walks and nature trails deep into the forest. With Ask being super close to the adventure, it is sure to give you a boost of energy if you are starting your afternoon with a spot of food. Likewise, if you’ve had a long hard day kicking up a sweat on the nature trails, you’ll be sure to find something to perk you back up. But if not, the extensive drinks menu and carby courses will have you ready for bed in no time.
