Like Giuseppe Verde (opera composer) said “You may have the Universe if I may have Italy”.
I also want Italy, pretty much all the time. And when I find a nice Italian restaurant my joy levels go up enormously.
After a Saturday spent shopping at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Dartford, England for the ones who are not familiar with this giant place, we went for a family dinner at Ask Italian.
The place was packed and we had to wait on a queue to be assigned a table, but the staff was very nice and efficient and not even 10 minutes went by when we were already sitting and choosing from the menu.
There are several ways of testing if an Italian Restaurants good, including looking around to see if there are any actual Italians eating there too, but I was too tired to pay attention to that, so may other technique, a more delicious one, is order a Lasagne.
My boyfriend ordered the Sea bass fillet baked in a white wine sauce with new potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach.
And his sister went for the Linguine Carbonara, a crispy pancetta in a rich creamy sauce with Pecorino, mascarpone and Riserva cheeses.
All of it was so delicious that surprisingly I didn’t have space for dessert. But we will definitely come back for more and try that Melting Eton Mess Tower with dark chocolate filled with strawberries, cream and meringue, and vanilla gelato, I saw on the menu and on several other tables.
