    Nice food, promptly served by friendly waitresses in a pleasant setting. We enjoyed our meal and got to the concert in the cathedral in good time.

    My partner and I went for Valentines Day and were pleasantly surprised. There are a lot of Italian restaurants but Ask Italian stood out. It had a brilliant atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. We had the 'I love you berry much' cocktail and it was delicious, we just had to indulge in having a few more! The food was very tasty. The only thing I did not like was that the chocolate cake was cold but that is down to personal preference. Overall a delicious meal and a great restaurant. We will be returning again soon!

    Lovely old building in the heart of Exeter. My husband felt that his chair was not very comfortable, I on the other hand had a nice soft padded seat. The service was excellent and we couldn't fault our meals. Will certainly return.

    Food was lovely but service was rubbish. We wanted a dessert but after waiting 20 mins for someone to come take our order we decided against it. When we mention this to the manager we were just told they are unstaffed and was rude in telling us.

    The service was slow. One of the meals for the main course (there were 6 of us in the party) was not served at the same time as the others and we had to wait several minutes for the remaining meal (they were very apologetic and we were given one complimentary cocktail as an apology). The quality of the food was good.
