Located just a stone’s throw away from the Roman Baths, Ask Italian brings Bath another taste of Italian culture, this time in a much more civilised (see: Roman invasion of AD43) and tasty way. If a long day of visiting or swimming in the historical baths has tired you out then Ask is the place to be for authentic Italian cooking at a reasonable price.
Using ingredients straight from Italy, you can enjoy a plethora of different dishes, adapted and modernised to make them even more exciting and tasty. Try the pea and prosciutto risotto or crab and ricotta filled pasta, and be wowed by its beef and chianti ravioli with a special charcoal black and white pasta in a red wine sauce. You’ll still feel like you’re eating in Italy, just with a cool modern twist. To accompany your meal, pick from a range of Italian wines, craft lemonades and Italian-inspired cocktails such as Italian twinkle with prosecco elderflower and vodka, and negroni.
Let us not forget dessert, which is – in our opinion – the best part of every meal. Go for the baked Nutella-stuffed gnocchi, with a chocolate dipping sauce – yes, you read that right. A sweet take on the traditional savoury pasta dish, it’s ideal if you feel like eating dessert for dinner. You’ll also find Italian classics such as affogato and tiramisu for those who want to keep their experience as authentic as possible.
With such an extensive menu to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice. Rest assured that whatever you decide to go for, Ask guarantees fresh, tasty and authentic comfort food suitable for everyone to enjoy. All of this is housed in one of Baths historical and architecturally stunning buildings just a few minutes away from all its biggest attractions. What could be better?
