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.

Atmosphere, layout of restaurant very good , food excellent, we had a young person with us and she was treated very kindly. Service was a little slow because the place was packed and there didn't seem to be enough staff on duty , those that were were very busy, smiling and apologetic about the small waits we had. Overall a very enjoyable evening and we will return.

We arrived and were warmly welcomed and shown to our table. Actually, we were given a choice which pleased my wife as she likes to sit in a warm spot. The waiting staff were alert and attentive without being intrusive.
As we had already made most of our choice for food by looking online, ordering didn't take too long. And happily neither did our antipasti. We were given us just enough time too have a quite conversation before it was served. The main course arrived promptly, in fact we were perhaps a little slow and it arrived before we had finished the first course. That was not a problem, it was kept warm for us until we were ready. That is an important point; too many times we have gone to a restaurant, wanting to spends some quite time together only to be rushed through our meal because they want to get in as many diners as possible.
We were offered dessert but the portions were such that to have eaten anymore would have made us both feel overly full and spoilt the evening.
All in all a very pleasant experience.
