Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Only two people serving and they were rushed off their feet. People were generally having to wait too long between courses. Requested olives with bread only to be told that they had run out of olives!!! When our main courses arrived (Calzone) they were both burnt to charcoal on top. We ended up only paying for our starters and drinks. I will never go there again. Bring back Prezzo, please!

    Brilliant. Hadn't been to ASK for a long time but we were very impressed with the service as it was manic! How they kept us all fed and happy I don't know. I'd have been running for the door! I had seafood linguine and a cheeky mojitos and it was a very pleasant lunchtime experience.

    Our waiter, a Brazilian man, was excellent. The food was good, the portions a little small. We had a big problem with the noise of the kitchen and the pot wash. They had no respect for the customers experience. We made the management aware, but they did not react. It was left to our brilliant waiter to move us to another room and table.
