Located in the Great North Leisure Park, surrounded by a Vue cinema, lido and bowling alley, Ask is conveniently placed to go after a busy day enjoying the facilities. With free parking, you don’t even have to worry about rushing your meal, so sit back and enjoy this Italian restaurant.
Featuring a number of exciting dishes on the menu, as well as the ones that have become so popular with the cuisine, like your standard Bolognese and lasagne, you’ll find Italian dishes with a twist here. For those who want to venture out from the classics, the purple basil pesto Genovese is a good option to go for. Or the filled half-moon pasta with crab and ricotta in tomato bisque is also worth a try.
Ask is also known for its prima pizza, a modern take on the traditional dish. The prima base is thinner and longer than a regular pizza making it lighter and giving more space for toppings. You can choose from the indulgent Salami Misti toppings with a selection of meats, roasted peppers and balsamic red onions. If you’re on a health kick, the super-green prima pizza with a pea puree topping and lots of veg is the option to go for – it's vegan too.
On the drinks menu, expect classic Italian cocktails such as Negroni and Aperol Spritz. Also, give the Blackberry Mojito and Peach V&T a go if Italian cocktails aren’t your thing. Lastly, don’t forget to order dessert. Grab a slice of the pistachio and olive oil cake or blood orange and chocolate tart with any of its hot drinks. Or if you want something a little more decadent, the chocolate Etna is a showstopper.
Whether you need an energy boost after visiting the Finchley Lido or just need somewhere to enjoy a pre-cinema meal, you’re bound to find something tasty to satisfy your Italian craving at this Ask.
