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.

    Great staff, lively atmosphere which you would expect at this time of year. Children loved it, especially the 'Chocolate Pizza'

    An utter disgrace

    The festive deal, 2 courses and prosecco for £14.95 was great!

    I had Al Pomodoro gluten free. It was nice but a bigger selection of gluten free pasta dishes would be much appreciated. You used to do a melanzane dish with aubergines which I loved but not available now. Always I feel my meal should be piping hot which it never is. Staff are always very friendly with good service.

    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...
