ASK Italian have begun a new campaign – #RespectThePasta aimed at reminding people how special pasta can be. We often associate pasta as something quick and easy to cook and often overlook just how many lovely recipes there are and how some quality ingredients and proper cooking can produce some really special dishes.
Our family LOVE pasta. As vegetarians pasta is a great food, and we often choose Italians when eating out as there will always be a tasty vegetarian option. This weekend we went down to ASK Italian in Cardiff for a special family meal as a family friend was staying with us.
Firstly the restaurant was lively and busy which is great and shows how popular it is. It was bright, open, and decorated in a fresh modern style. The staff were really friendly and colouring pencils and pictures were given to the girls to keep them entertained.
Where to start? The meal was delicious from start to finish.
For starters we chose olives, Panzerottini and Butterfly King Prawns. The girls shared a children’s meal (it was huge!) and their starter was carrot and cucumber crudités with garlic bread fingers and dip.
For mains the girls chose the Pomodorini Pizza, and we had Tagliatelle Con Aragosta E Frutti Di Mare, Margherita Con Bufala and Calzone Cacciatore. The portions were extremely generous and the food utterly delicious.
We couldn’t let the amazing desserts pass us by and we enjoyed some fruit with the children’s meal, Lemon Sorbet, Italian Cheesecake and Chocolate Mocha Crostata.
We washed it all down with Sicilian Lemonade, Raspberry Lemonade, water for the little one and Peroni for the Daddy and his best friend. We had such a lovely meal, I’d definitely recommend ASK Italian for a relaxed yet vibrant meal out with the family.
