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.

Lunchtime visit

Popped in for lunch on a Sunday, we had not booked but were seated immediately. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. As others have said on Tripadvisor the food was perfectly fine but maybe not one of the best meals we have had.

Not bad food for a national chain so can't grumble about that. The service however was interesting, the waitress was Eastern European and we couldn't work out if she was grunting or speaking to us. She had an annoying habit of leaning over the banister and every time we thought she was going to drop the plates or cutlery. An... More

A family lunch for 3. We arrived a little early but were met by a smiling friendly staff member. Shown to our table, asked what we would like to drink, and left to ponder the menu. Food ordered it arrived hot and exactly as required. The staff were friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. A superb meal in... More

I've been to Ask on a number of occasions, usually with a special offer voucher via their email newsletter. Service is always great, particularly if we say we need to be in and out in an hour on a work lunchtime. Food is always hot, with a massive variety, and tastes really good. I'm not generally a pizza person but... More

After half an hour of research (Big Thank you to the Manager for all his efforts & time), it was finally discovered that the pizza bases were suitable for a vegan after all! (labels provided). The allergy book only lists menu dishes as a whole and even a salad comes up as not suitable due to the dressing for example...but... More

We had a celebration meal with friends, 8 in total. The shared starters were very good and set everyone up well, however when three of us were served our main dish, it took 10 minutes for our cutlery to arrive! The waitress was busy talking to the chef and did not bring any cutlery until the others were served, by... More

My wife and I visit the Ask restaurant in Truro regularly, being part of chain the menu does not change very often however the food presentation and service is of top quality, this is a very well run restaurant and well worth a visit.

Went to the restaurant in the afternoon, ordered chicken salad, the food was nice; fresh ingredient. Staffs were very good approaching. Love the modern design that Ask keep changing and updating their decoration. Wondering if they do not offer any lunch time menu ? But overall it's good. Will definitely go back again.
