ASK Italian in Truro 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. Take a look at our Truro menu and, if you like what you see, book a table.

Happy friendly staff serving quality food at good prices.

We are regular customers to ask and have always liked it. However last week we visit led and it was really clear that the staff are trying really hard to provide good service. It was a busy Saturday night, yet they were still in good spirits and ensuring none of the customers got ignored.

To be fair we had a special offer voucher for this restaurant, but we have been in this resturant before, so decided to maybe try somewhere we hadnt been before, we headed for another local restaruant (only to find it completely empty), so headed back to ASK!! The staff were extremely welcoming and it looked like it had been recently... More

I came here for a fiends birthday which was booked very last minute. There was a table of 20 of us and Ask was the only place that could fit us all in... I'm not a huge fan of Italian food so wasn't particularly looking forward to the meal but I had the calzone which was actually very good. We... More

Popped in on a Thursday evening for a meal before heading to the theatre. We were kept waiting in the doorway for ages. When (what I assume is the manager) asked us what we wanted, we said a table for two please. He immediately looked annoyed and asked us if we'd booked, we said no. He looked agitated and looked...

we had visited this restaurant once before and found it rather pricey and ordinary - in fact we had avoided going again - but our last experience was quite different. Very good food, nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. Will go again.

Come back Andy Emma and Ocacia! What was a restaurant with good service and atmosphere now all lost. A restaurant we used with friends on a regular basis but not any more! Telephone unanswered, bad service and attitude! Unheard of customers turned away.

We had booked a table and was told they could only do 8pm which was fine. We arrived and was shown to our table. The restaurant seemed fairly quiet. It took about 20 minutes for our drinks order to be taken. When they finally arrived and our food order was taken it was 8.35. Our food finally arrived in front... More

We booked our sons 5th birthday party here as he wanted a 'grown up meal with friends'! They have a fab kids menu with lots of choice, service was great, friendly, and even helped with the birthday cake! We would definitely go back - thank you

I highly recommend Ask Italian, Truro! The food is delicious! The wine is great and the milkshakes are a real hit with my 3 year old! :) The staff are friendly and helpful and the restaurant itself is welcoming and relaxing!
