If you’ve spent a busy day browsing the British Museum and feel like indulging in a carby treat, Ask Italian has you covered. Located just a five minute walk from lots of London landmarks you can enjoy a meal from this modern and casual Italian dining restaurant.
The minimal décor mixed with millennial-pink walls and succulents to match not only makes for a great place to have your meal, but also plays host to endless Instagram opportunities. When it comes to the food, expect to find lots of Italian classics such as classic pizzas, calzone and a variety of pasta dishes. You’ll also find dishes such as pollo Milanese with new potatoes and sea bass al forno with lots of veg and a white wine sauce.
If you still have space after mains, don’t forget to take a look at the extensive dessert menu, full to the brim with sweet treats and interesting flavour combinations. Go for the cookie with salted caramel gelato for something warm and comforting. If you want to try something new however, the pistachio and olive oil cake is worth giving a try. They even have vegan desserts to choose from.
To accompany your Italian feast, you can’t forget to try one (or five) of the many varieties of Italian wine and Prosecco on the drinks menu. Classic Italian cocktails are also on hand, so don’t forget to order a Negroni or Aperol Spritz to really make you feel like you’re dining in Italy.
Ask is child-friendly too, so if they happen to be in-tow and you have to swap out Negroni’s for lemonades, at least you can know they will be happy picking from the kids menu. They can pick from a choice of pizza and pasta topping or there is the classic safe option of chicken goujons to fall back on.
This central London restaurant is a great option after a day of sightseeing and you can be confident in knowing that there is something on the menu for everyone.
