Located in Southampton’s Leisure World complex, Ask is the perfect place to enjoy a spot of Italian, whether you have spent the day at the bowling alley, want to avoid the meatballs at IKEA, or just need a quick bite to eat before watching a movie.
The menu is full of your standard Italian treats. Think pizza Margherita, calzone pollo and lasagne. You really can’t go wrong with any of these dishes. If however, you feel like branching out a little, or just fancy trying something new, the pea and prosciutto risotto or beef and chianti ravioli are worth a try.
When it comes to drinks, it makes sense to go for something Italian. You can choose between a huge selection of wines from all over Italy, or go for cocktails. Opt for the Negroni or Aperol Spritz to keep things classic. Or try the signature Italian Twinkle with Prosecco, elderflower and lemon to add a bit of sparkle to your meal. If you don’t fancy an alcoholic drink, there are mocktails and craft lemonades to quench your thirst too.
After indulging in the carby goodness Italian cuisine has to offer, and you've had a cocktail (or three), it would be rude not to finish off with a dessert. Luckily, there is no shortage of sweet treats on Ask’s dessert menu. The baked chocolate gnocchi is an interesting sweet take on the savoury classic, and the pistachio and olive oil cake is definitely a different flavour to give a try.
If you have time to kill on a weekend while the kids go bowling, why not try the set menu for the full Italian cuisine experience. With starters of bruschetta and garlic bread to choose from, Mains of Bolognese or Pomodoro and a gelato dessert, you'll be more than happy.
