About

With so many things to do in York, you’re going to work up an appetite; visit the ASK Italian restaurant on Blake Street and you’ll experience a beautiful blend of cultures: outstanding Italian cooking in a magnificent historic building. Our chefs produce a sumptuous menu stuffed with classics, drinks to suit all budgets and gorgeous gelati.

Book a table in The Grand Assembly Rooms, built almost 300 years ago in the Palladian style of architecture, and you’ll be eating in a stunning setting beneath chandeliers and surrounded by Corinthian columns. Where else will you sample authentic Italian cuisine in a room with such impressive architectural heritage?

The tourist information centre is right next door, where you’ll find out everything there is to see in York. We recommend York Minster (just a minute away), the Yorkshire Museum and the Museum Gardens, York Theatre Royal, York Art Gallery, boat tours on the River Ouse and arthouse cinema at the City Screen Picturehouse, all just a stroll from ASK Italian.
