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.

    Always enjoy going for a meal here. I have a gluten free diet, so a few more desert and starters would e good

    We decided to sit outside as the weather was beautiful plus we had 3 very young children with us...
    The outside area is well presented and staff were tidying all the tables of leaves etc.
    Waiter was attentive and food/drinks came in good time. Chicken risotto was delicious but the garlic bread was too greasy.
    This establishment in my opinion is not suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs unless you are sitting by the entrance as there is so many stairs to get to the outside/upper floor area. Thankfully the waiter helped us with our pushchairs.
    Really enjoyed our lunch and will be returning.

    Atmosphere, layout of restaurant very good , food excellent, we had a young person with us and she was treated very kindly. Service was a little slow because the place was packed and there didn't seem to be enough staff on duty , those that were were very busy, smiling and apologetic about the small waits we had. Overall a very enjoyable evening and we will return.
