Just around the corner from the very upmarket Cavendish Square in central London is the ASK Italian restaurant on Wigmore Street.Also just a stone's throw away form the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, ASK Italian offers a relaxing culinary retreat for tired and hungry shoppers. Based in an impressive period townhouse, one would expect prices to be high, but the more than affordable menu is just one of the keys to the huge success of the ASK Italian restaurant franchise. The other is the quality of the food. Tuck into dishes such as cod and pancetta fishcakes with a lemon and parsley mayo or a classic mushroom and ricotta ravioli with a creamy mushroom and white wine sauce.
