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.

    I visited ASK on Saturday 28th April. I wasn’t very happy with my food, it looked nice but was tasteless, I had PENNE AL POLLO DELLA CASA, which was didn’t have any taste of mushrooms or white wine in at all.. was tasteless & no flavour even when I added salt & pepper. My friend had the spaghetti carbonara and she also said hers was tasteless. I wouldn’t recommend going back here... quite expensive for tasteless food....

    Great vegan menu and really polite staff although we came in quite late.
    One thing - if they could maybe cut the aubergine more in the pasta or at least take the skin off as it makes it a bit unappetising :)
    Can’t wait to go again :)

    Good! Good with the children. Staff friendly & food was nice

    A great choice for an informal lunch with my 10 and 13 year olds. Pizza always goes down well, followed by ice cream of course. My only gripe would be the size of the salad I ordered. The bowl seems to be getting smaller and smaller - fortunately I could fill the gap with my children’s pizza crusts.

    Food got to the table really quickly and tasted great. Only complaint really was it was very loud but that more to do with other diners rather than the restaurant
