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.

    Very good service, nice (but not exceptional!) food. Salmon & grain salad....salmon a little overcooked, a little tough, & the grain salad lacked a little flavour.

    Lovely meal, in nice relaxed surroundings. A new menu issued a few days before our visit, so lots of choice, but no 'specials board'. Our waitress was cheerfully attentive and helpful, and generally I felt there was good customer focus.

    Brilliant. Was able to have good choice of pizza gluten free loved the touch of the lemon complimentary drink at table. Excellent friendly service. Only criticism was the price of glass on white wine. 6.95 was overpriced .
