Last year was a busy and exciting year… We’ve opened 3 new restaurants, and many of our restaurants have been transformed and reopened with a beautiful new look. Each restaurant showcases quintessentially Italian features like our indoor courtyards and hand painted murals celebrating our love of Italy.
You’ll find illuminated marble panels layered with quotes about Italy, bringing relaxed Italian culture to your day alongside fun flashes of neon. Whether it’s a popular Italian hand gesture or map of Italy, these vibrant installations create Instagram-able moments our customers love to share.
The first thing you’ll notice are the stunning restaurant exteriors which grab your attention whilst giving a glimpse of the warm glowy interior. In Wigmore Street, London, the striped awnings shade charming tables and chairs with classic Italian floor tiles. The alfresco look is complete with plants, fairy lights, blankets and furs, customers can relax and watch the world go by whilst stopping off for a meal. We love catching passers-by taking a selfie in front of our heart shaped hands neon sign as they enter the lobby.
Each restaurant is special with its own link to a particular region in Italy. In Worcester, for example, inspired by Puglia, you’ll notice flamingos flying by on the hand painted mural by Emma Louise Jones. These iconic migratory birds are found stopping off for a break on the sun-baked Puglian coast. Teamed with a pink neon Italy map and quirky chandelier-like light features in amongst the hanging plants, the interior feels warm and dreamy.
Stratford upon Avon, another recent addition to our family, is inspired by the islands Burano and Murano. Natural light seeps through the large windows with bright colours interlaced with foliage, you’ll feel as if you’ve just stepped into the courtyard of a local Murano townhouse. Situated in Bell Court, at the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, there is ample room for al-fresco eating in the summer, so you can eat and drink over-looking the courtyard, just like they do in Italy!
In Basingstoke you’ll notice the indoor courtyard is dotted with golden lemons and the artwork features pops of colour, famous to the hillside towns of Sorrento. On the long summer days there’s ample space to dine outside or enjoy a balmy evening where you’re sure to feel transported to Italy.
We’re proud to have many restaurants in beautiful period buildings which retain the natural character of the restaurant, which help our customers escape and feel transported to the Mediterranean. Take a look at ASK Italian Faversham, with its period features that have been brought to life with Italian styling. ASK Italian Spring Street, in London is an old post office with lofty ceilings and a glass conservatory which compliments the Italian personality. Signature hanging plants and a fun disco ball bringing this lovely breezy space to life.
