Then it was time for our main courses. I had ordered the Risotto con Pollo E Funghi as I love risotto but my husband doesn’t, so I seized the opportunity to try something I knew I would enjoy. I loved the combination of the chicken breast slices and sautéed mushrooms and the creamy white wine sauce was perfect.
My husband had a Linguine Carbonara (pictured below) which he really enjoyed and ended up sharing with our daughter, she’s a real pasta fiend!
Keen to sample the menu we did order desserts although normally a main course is enough for us. My husband had the Italian Cheesecake and I ordered the Grande Gelato which is basically Eton Mess Italian-style (pictured below). I need to make it at home as it was amazing and really complimented the risotto I had just eaten.
At this point we were really full and happy so settled up and toddled off to our favourite park for a very long walk. Our final bill came to £58.70 for meals for two adults, two children, hot and cold drinks which I thought represented good value. Everyone enjoyed their food, the service was excellent, especially considering we had to chosen to eat on such a busy day, and the atmosphere was perfect for enjoying a delicious family meal at ASK Italian.
