My wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time on New Years Eve and were really impressed. The staff were very helpful as my wife is coeliac and they do offer a gluten free menu. Both the lady and gentleman were very friendly and professional and we loved the trial drink of a special lemon and raspberry lemonade,... More

The food is great, the staff is nice and it`s not a very expensive place. Also it is really close to the pier and old town centre.

If this is the Ask Italian in the Lanes I would highly recommend it. If it is a nice day sit on the back patio for a pleasant dinner. Good food and good desserts-I had the raspberry sorbet.
