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.

    Great location ,lovely premises , however very disappointed by the service. I had booked a table ahead therefore it did not expect to be placed in a back room with no music , with a view on one side, admittedly looking at the cathedral but on the other side looking at the dishwasher , sink ,overflowing rubbish, clearly not a place to enjoy a nice christmasy Saturday meal. It is a busy time of the year , I understand , but I felt that the person who dealt with our disappointment was quite rude initially , maybe he was under stress but as customers ,we shouldn't have had to feel the impact from it; he must have realized that his attitude was exaggerated as he found us another table and was more pleasant however it is unfortunate that the experience was negative for all of us.

    Met with three friends, I had organised the meal venue. Ordered off lunchtime special menu. Three different starters, all good. All four ordered carbonara for main. It was awful. Just massive amount of pasta, very little sauce so dry but strangely greasy. The manager was excellent, no charge, offered to replace, we declined. Pleased he dealt with us very fairly, sad about the meal, kind of spoilt the whole experience

    The food was very good but the service was rushed. The waiter was brilliant but they just didn't enough staff.
