We've been for lunch here a handful of times over the years, and our recent visit was as good as ever. Food is made to a good standard and service is friendly. They manage to keep a good consistent quality between the meat dishes, pastas and pizzas. All round, while nothing outstanding, it's always reliable for a pleasant family meal... More

As always, Oscar and his team came up trumps with a fantastic evening for myself and team. Came in on a Sunday evening and had a night of great service - Jacob and Igor - fab food - the top boys behind the pass - and wonderful ambience. Would recommend every day of the week, great place and superb staff.... More

Visited here with my wife Glenys for a very pleasant lunch. The menu was excellent. I tried a three mushroom dish whilst Glenys's prawn based was, she said , just as good. Service was friendly and quick. Impressively they guarantee that all tips go to staff. They also run a voluntary 25 pence donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital which... More

Wonderful place for a meal. Me and my friends have been here twice now and still not disappointed. From the food to the service. I'm absolutely recommend this for anyone that wants to have a good time. Special mentions to Vincent and Jake our waiters that night.

There were 4 adults, 11 year old and 1 year old and we were all well accommodated, so sorry for the mess 🙈 From children's pasta meal, pizza, carbonara, garlic... More

Recent visit to Ask Italian in Shrewsbury, this was a first visit and also the last, the meal was Fettuccini with pork and beef mince, or spag bol without the spaghetti. Served luke warm,and getting colder by the minute, at a cost of £9+ it represented poor value for money, poor quality and generally sub standard service. If that was... More

Six of us ate here as part of a family occasion. We had a variety of starters, mains and deserts. All the food was great and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful even though the restaurant was busy. There are definitely better restaurants in Shrewsbury, but if you are after a restaurant which caters for groups of people...
