Housed in a striking period building opposite Exeter Cathedral, ASK Italian Exeter offers traditional Italian cuisine in relaxed, unpretentious surroundings. ASK is close to the Guildhall Shopping Centre, and the Royal Albert Museum.

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.

Exeter ASK Italian is a family-friendly Italian restaurant in the heart of the city, a 7-minute drive from Exeter Central Rail Station.

    I didn't get an email to confirmail my booking so had to ring Ask Exeter and they confirmed it over the phone. Everything there was first class. Excellent table, a lovely waiter, and fantastic food. They were very busy but we were never made to feel rushed at all. Live the volcano pudding!!

    Won't hurry back!
    My Wife's food arrived cold, it was replaced way after we had all finished, no "sincere" apology and then tried to charge us full price!
    This was very disappointing, as we've eaten there several times and it has been fine - hence why I haven't rated lower...

    Very easy to book online, great welcome on arrival at the restaurant. Superb service, just the right ,level, not too pushy.
    Manager & waiting staff attentive & helpful.
    Delicious food, I had risotto , the other diner said his meatball dish was the best he had ever had.
    No hassle when I used my Tesco vouchers towards payment ( there has been hassle in other places ), the waitress even suggested making a payment towards the bill so that I had an amount left for another time.
    We had a most enjoyable evening , nothing could have been improved.
