This is the fourth time in a row we have been offered free prosecco for delays to our meal! Ask is always busy, the food always really good and the service always awful. Don't ever go there if you only have a limited time available. it is impossible to have a quick meal or even a moderately paced meal. You... More

This Ask Italian is effectively faultless in so far as reliably providing what you expect to get every time. This is certainly meant as a compliment. the staff are always really friendly, helpful and efficient. The menu and dishes as served have never given any cause for complaint at all - in fact some are downright excellent for what one... More

We were a table of 15, pre ordered food order, after an hour of waiting for the food to come I asked when it would be coming the reply was 'when it's cooked!' , her attitude didn't get any better when anyone asked for anything, the food was a mixture of pizza (which were all a bit shy of toppings)...

We had a lovely evening here for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The food was great, tasty and hot. The waitress was attentive even though she was rushed of her feet as the place was very busy.

Had another lovely meal here - reliable good and tasty food. It was the great service that made it special - Amy and Steph were clearly overworked as the place was busy with just the two of them waiting tables but they managed to keep smiling whilst delivering great service. Amy had served us on our previous visit and she... More

Main courses were good, the sea bass was lovely and tasty. Shared calamari starter a bit stuck together, but ok. We eat here with Tesco club card deals otherwise we find it too expensive, as there is now a lot of competition in Truro.

We were going to the Hall for Cornwall, show starting at 7.30pm, and it was difficult to get through in time, arriving at 6pm, and informing on reserving that we were going to a show. Food and staff pleasant, but allow pleanty of time. We had the offer of 2 courses for £10.95 which is good value.

I've tried Ask Italian all over the country. The one in Truro is set in the centre of town and has a good atmosphere. They managed to fit my father and son and I in on a Saturday night but told us it is best to book in advance, it was very busy. The chicken we had was great for... More

Nice restaurant premises. Good location in the town. Food was good but took a while to come out even though the restaurant was quiet. We were also kept waiting for a long time before being able to order. However food was good so worth the wait. Dough ball starter with cheese and chilli was the best part.

3rd visit today, food very good, service although not excellent still good for a busy lunchtime in a mid range restaurant, very friendly, only blip was main plates could have been cleared quicker but that's being extra critical. Definitely return.
