Serving up traditional Italian cuisine in a stylish and central location, this casual-dining restaurant is the place to enjoy a meal after a day of shopping, sightseeing or film-watching.
You can be sure to leave feeling full and satisfied after feasting on all the carbs. Think pasta carbonara with an asparagus twist, calzone pollo and Margherita pizza, all freshly cooked. Although you’ll find all the classic Italian dishes on this menu, expect some dishes with a twist, too. If you feel a little health-conscious, the super green prima pizza (prima: a longer crispier pizza base) is for you, but for those ready to fully indulge, the purple basil and pesto Genovese is the one to go for.
As well as having lots to choose from on the main menu, kids are also spoilt for choice at Ask. They can pick from lots of different pizza toppings, pasta sauces and to finish an ice-cream sundae or chocolate pizza (you may want to steal a slice for yourself).
Now, back onto more adult matters, namely booze. You won’t find a shortage of it here. You can pick from a selection of Italian wines and if you’re celebrating, Prosecco is on hand to help. More of a cocktail person? It makes sense to go for a Negroni or Aperol Spritz, you are in an Italian restaurant after all.
On the dessert menu you’ll find yoghurt panna cotta – a healthy take on the creamy rich original – its award winning pistachio and olive oil cake, and for a chocolatey treat, the blood orange and chocolate tart will fill the spot.
Located seconds away from the quaint Cardiff arcades, you can enjoy watching the city go by in its alfresco dining area, or sit inside surrounded by indoor plants, an oddly placed disco ball and some pastel coloured tiling. Regardless of where you decided to eat your meal, Ask is sure to do the job.
