ASK Italian Review
Yesterday I visited ASK Italian for the first time, to review the new children's menu. I am unsure why we have never visited an ASK Italian before as we all enjoy Italian food and it is a safe choice with the children. The new children's menu is £6.95 and includes a starter, main, dessert and babyccino.
The menu doubles as an activity sheet with finger puppets for the children to colour whilst they were waiting. The boys really enjoyed this.
The children's starters were bought quickly as they understand that children don't like waiting. The starter consists of vegetable ticks with garlic bread and dip. All the boys enjoyed this.
For the main they all chose the Spaghetti Carbonara, the portions were large and they all enjoyed this. One thing I was really impressed with was that you are able to ask for an allergen menu. Whilst my children don't have any allergies, I know that it can be hard for friends eating out with children that do. The pizzas (except calzone) can be gluten free as can the pasta dishes.
For desserts there is a lovely choice. If my boys couldn't read I am sure they would have been happy with the fruity ice lolly or fruit. However, big man's eyes lit up at the chocolate pizza and the other two were excited by the toppings for their ice cream.
To end the meal they even had their own babyccino which big man pimped up with his left over sprinkles.
I thought that the selection was fantastic and I it certainly wont be the last time we visit.
I feel I should also add about the meals my husband and I had as they were delicious. In denial that I was no longer on holiday, I enjoyed a sea breeze mocktail, before we enjoyed our sharing platter which was filled with high quality ingredients.
Both my husband and I chose pasta dishes which we enjoyed.
For dessert I had to go for the new chocolate lava mountain. Hot toffee sauce slowly melts a chocolate case over ice cream and chocolate fondant. It was seriously good!
Have you been to ASK Italian before? What dish do you recommend for my next visit?
