About Ask Italian Canterbury
Looking for somewhere to eat before the theatre? Ask Italian Canterbury has you covered. Located just a few minutes from the Marlowe Theatre and equally as close to the city centre and the beautiful Cathedrals, enjoy Ask's take on traditional Italian dining.
Kick off your meal with its special Zuppa di mare starter, a selection of seafood in a bisque served with a crostini, or go for something a little more simple like the classic garlic bread (with a choice of toppings if you’re feeling adventurous).
Expect all the Italian classics when you get to mains. Think Bolognese, Margherita pizza and pollo Milanese, but also get ready for some exciting new creations such as the super-green prima pizza for the health-conscious among us. The award-winning purple basil pesto Genovese is also worth a try.
To accompany your Italian feast it makes sense to go for a classic Italian wine or cocktail. Opt for the Aperol Spritz, Negroni, or if you have something to celebrate, perhaps a glass of Prosecco will hit the spot?
Last but not least, you can’t forget dessert. If chocolate is the only thing that will satisfy your sweet tooth, the popular chocolate Etna is the one to go for. If you want something a little fresher, the yoghurt panna cotta is a healthier take on the indulgent Italian classic.
Catering to vegan, vegetarian and gluten free diets, this restaurant is great if your party has a host of dietary requirements. Don’t expect lousy unappetizing option either. Ask makes sure that – just as the main menu – the special menus are just as tasty and extensive.
All housed in a charming and quirky building with a bright and colourful mural, it makes for a pretty and interesting place to enjoy your meal after a day of enjoying everything Canterbury has to offer.
