ASK Italian in Bury St Edmunds is a place for great food and warm service. Think fresh bread made to tear and share. A glass of fine wine worth deserving of your time. Delicious main dishes prepared the traditional way. Everything we know and love about Italian food is served straight to your table.

Worked for us!

First time I've eaten in an ASK. Initial impression was good, we arrived 40 minutes early for a booking, but were shown to a table without problem, we then chose to move due to a cold draught from the doors as people went in or out, we picked another table without asking, but we're met with a nod... read more

Came here for a birthday meal on a busy Saturday night. The service was prompt and friendly, with the waitress making recommendations and answering our questions about the menu. The menu itself is concise, but varied enough for different tastes to find something they will enjoy. The food was tasty, and the two pizzas we had were a good size;... More

We don't usually eat at chain restaurants, but this particular venue never fails. Pasta is tastey and hot. Staff friendly and efficient. CEO take note, please bring back the mushroom dip!!

We had a nice meal here, nothing to shout about though. It's a typical Italian restaurant, you know what you're going to get however this one was a bit plain. One thing definitely worth a mention is that the beer is extremely expensive! £6.15! For a restaurant that's not exactly high end I felt this was on the high side.... More

Arrived at ten to eight for an eight pm booking. Initially all OK, but about 15 minutes after we had ordered drinks and food we were told they had run out of risotto! So we ordered an alternative dish and waited another 25 minutes to be served starters. Then another long wait of around 40 minutes for main courses to... More

This place is terrible for so many different reasons and I've only been twice. The most recent trip was on a slow Sunday night. The manager on duty refused to seat us because we didn't have a reservation and she didn't want to get overwhelmed. ..she only had three tables.. The first time we went the service was mediocre and... More
