The children love Italian food and so do Hubs and myself – Pizza, Pasta and desserts that include gelato and Panna Cota (my favourite dessert of all time!)
On Monday, Jadyn’s Birthday, we were treated to a rather lovely evening courtesy ASK Italian as part of their #MakeitSpecial Campaign and boy was it special.
It all started with a cab arriving to take us into London to the ASK Italian restaurant on Wigmore Street. The ride was a treat itself with us catching London lit up in all her Christmas glory. It was like visiting fairyland.
The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas without being overly done (which I quite like). It was festive and at the same time very simple.
What was more important to us was the meal.
ASK Italian has a wonderful festive menu for a set price or there are festive dishes also served a la carte.
Hubs had already made up his mind (he’d done his research online) about what he wanted. He had the Salami Misti (Milano and finocchiona salamis, pepperoni and smoked prosciutto, roasted red peppers, caramelised onion and Grana Padano cheese.) It looked and was delicious.
Jadyn and I had decided to share a Super Festivo Menu which consists of a Glass of Prosecco, Starter, Main, Dessert and Limoncello to finish.
You can also choose to swap your Prosecco or Limoncello for a soft drink of your choice.
I had the Elderflower Presse – it’s so refreshing.
We had Butterfly King Prawns for starter. This was cooked to perfection and tasted just out of this world. There were 5 prawns in total, all a good size, served on Italian bread.
For main, we chose the Prima Pizza Bianco Natale (Festive prima pizza with a white creamy base topped with Italian Luganica sausage, sautéed mixed mushrooms, spinach and chestnuts, finished with Fontal cheese and dollops of crème fraîche). This was really lovely, light and tasty it was a nice change from the normal tomato base.
Ethan and Aeryn had a child’s meal each which consisted of garlic bread, pizza and dessert. Ethan had pepperoni and Aeryn had the Pomodorini. The pizzas were a good size and Aeryn could not get through hers.
For dessert, Hubs chose Tiramisu. Jadyn and I shared a Chocolate Amore (we were too stuffed but wanted dessert, greedy I know).
The two younger ones had gelato – chocolate with spinkles.
We really enjoyed the evening. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. The staff were always at hand but not hovering over us so that we were given the privacy to enjoy our meal as a family.
ASK Italian is the ideal place to celebrate as a family as it is child friendly. There are highchairs and Crayola Crayons and colouring sheets provided to keep children busy while waiting to be served.
That is not to say that it is not the place for a business meeting or a more intimate meal. The atmosphere is cosy and relaxed making it a perfect setting for a delicious meal.
A big thank you to the team at ASK Italian for making my daughter’s birthday so special. It was such a lovely evening.
