Description: You couldn't ask for a better location for dining in Scarborough than that of the superb ASK Italian restaurant. Based in the North Wharf, ASK Italian sits directly opposite the sea and is perched on the harbour side. If you dine upstairs you'll catch the most magnificent views over the sea and Scarborough Castle and the large outdoor seating area is idyllic in the summer months. As for the food, ASK Italian Scarborough serves up classic Italian food with style and flair. The menu is full of tasty Italian dishes such as the Pollo Marsala (chicken supreme cooked in mushroom and Marsala wine sauce served with green beans and a bowl of seasoned chips or roasted new Charlotte potatoes or the delicious salad with marinated king prawns and a spicy chilli and lemon dip. Enjoy a chilled Peroni beer or glass of wine and indulge in the beautiful views and first class food at ASK Italian.

If you like a lot of salt then eat here.
I had calzone. The dough was extremely salty, the filling was fine
My wife had fruit de la mare, this was extremely salty as well.
Our daughters pomodoro pasta. Was ok.

Restaurants have used this trick for years to get you to drink more, but when your on tablets for blood pressure they really must stop this tactic.

We won't be using this chain again. Having spent quite a lot of time in Italy living local I never experienced authentic Italian food laden with salt.

We tried to book the restaurant for 2 days and was told it was booked up. We finally git a booking online fir 4pm, they told us it was all they had available. When we got there the restaurant was empty without any atmosphere whatsoever , like sitting in a bus station cafe. Food not that special either, worst Italian restaurant I've ever seen.

Fancied a quick drink after a lovely coastal walk. Stood like lemons waiting for “busy” staff to assign a table. We asked for a table upstairs, all booked was the reply, yet every table outside was free, what a numpty. If you’re after great customer service, suggest you go elsewhere
