During our visit the place was very crowded, but the staff handled it well and were friendly. The restaurant has a glutenfree menu with really nice pizza's, pasta's and desserts. Really nice and enjoyed our pizza's.

Six of us went on a Saturday evening to celebrate my birthday. Great service. Food really good and served hot !!! Unusual in a lot of restaurants. Bottle of Prosecco was good too. Agree with previous review about toilets - Ladies toilets were awful !!

We visited this restaurant to have lunch. The food was really good, and the staff was super nice as well. However, I must point out that toilet was dirty. I Recommend it to anyone who wants to have a nice meal

A trip to Oxford for just me and spotted Ask near the bus stop thus a convenient place for lunch. The service was very quick and my Carbonara was hot and quite tasty. Not the biggest portion but plenty for me.

The food and the service are ok. Nothing exceptional. The mushrooms were good. The pizza wasnt the greatest ive had. The lobster and prawn pasta was too "fishy". Good enough if very hungry and you dont want to look anywhere else for better food.

We loved the atmosphere, the décor is lovely, the staff delightful, the food outstanding! But - I'm sad to say - the ladies toilets were atrocious. All three toilets were individual boxes. One was occupied, one had no light and the other had no toilet...More
