Ask Italian in Paddington, London W2

Paddington is one of London’s most iconic districts, mainly due to its connection to the fictional character, Paddington Bear, who arrived at Paddington Station from Peru (and was also partial to a marmalade sandwich or two!).

As one of the capital’s busiest transport hubs, the area is well catered for when it comes to offering commuters and locals a wide choice of places to eat and drink.

One of the area’s popular chain restaurants is Ask Italian, inspired by all aspects of the Italian lifestyle. While putting a modern slant on the decor, the restaurant offers an extensive menu of traditional Italian cuisine made with the finest fresh ingredients.

With friendly staff and an emphasis on bringing authentic tastes of Italy to the streets of Paddington and elsewhere around the UK, it is no surprise that the Ask Italian restaurant concept has proved a resounding success.  The restaurant prides itself on working with the best suppliers and chefs, including one of the UK’s most influential chefs, Theo Randal, who helped them to develop their outstanding menu.

The menu includes traditional dishes such as Salsiccia and the classic stone baked Margherita pizza, to new and exciting dishes such as Salami Misti and Pollo Piccante Con Pancetta. As well as a pizzas, pasta, risotto, meats, salads and sides, you can round off your meal with a yummy dessert - Almond, plum and pistachio tart, Chocolate Amore, honeycomb cheesecake, profiteroles, sorbets and, of course, ice cream. Delizioso!

Open every day from 11.30am-11pm, the restaurant provides the perfect setting to enjoy a casual business lunch or even a romantic evening meal. There is even a takeaway service, if you fancy a taste of Italy at home!
