Housed in a period building in the town centre, ASK Italian Colchester serves delicious Italian cuisine within a 6-minute walk of Colchester Arts Centre and the Odeon Cinema. The restaurant also boasts a pretty garden, perfect for al fresco dining on a sunny summer's day.

Inspired by the Italian way of eating, ASK Italian celebrates mealtimes as an opportunity to connect with one another around the table. Start with a perfect-for-sharing antipasti board from the ASK Italian menu, and enjoy signature dishes from fresh pasta to crispy stone-baked pizzas with a great choice of toppings. And because there's always room for dessert, diners can indulge in a selection of beautiful desserts including the chocolate Etna, served with plenty of theatre.

ASK Italian restaurants showcase Italian cuisine at affordable prices, with allergen information on hand if ever you need it, plus a fun kids menu. Premium beers, including Sicily's most famous craft beer, Messina Bira, are available alongside Italian wines, cocktails and soft drinks, like a refreshing craft lemonade.

The family-friendly Colchester ASK Italian is just an 8-minute walk from historic Colchester Castle.

    First visit and we will definitely be back. The food is delicious, as is the homemade lemonade, the staff were very attentive and we even managed to eat Al Fresco as it was such a beautiful evening. We all had a guess at what the bill would be and I am delighted to say it was considerably cheaper than we had anticipated.

    We had a lovely meal here with very friendly service. The kitchen went out of their way to make me an off menu dessert that I could eat with my dairy allergy!! Couldn't recommend them enough!!! :-)

    Lovely to be able to sit outside. Caprese salad was mostly rocket, must have run out of basil?! But overall good.
