Food solid .....but oh that air conditioning!

We eat regularly in this restaurant and the service and food are always reliable. However, as a folically challenged male, I am continuously frustrated how cold it feels and it seems wherever I sit, I am afflicted by a stream of cold air directed straight at my bald head! For me, there are... read more

We visited ASK early evening with our small grand children so we could leave at a reasonable time. The back room where we got seated was very cold, but that got sorted eventually. The food was okish, standardised food from ASK. Waiting time reasonable.....but when we got to desert for the kids, it took 1 hour to make 2 chocolate... More

We came here for a meal before going to the cinema a few doors along. As always, the staff were friendly and welcoming and the service throughout our visit was attentive. The food was served in a timely manner, tasted lovely and the portions were a good size. Overall a lovely way to start our evening out!

we had a pre theatre meal here this week , and we were very pleased with the service and the food. The staff were very pleasant and the food so tasty. The sharing platter of desserts was very yummy. With an on line voucher of 25% off food who could ask for more .

We enjoyed three courses with wine and coffee. The Insalata Caprese was perfect for a light starter and I really enjoyed the Salami Misti. To finish we both enjoyed a single espresso with a chocolate cake.

Visited Ask in Truro on my business trip and I have to say my visit was pleasing. Friendly, attentive yet professional staff with very relaxed atmosphere. Food was absolutely scrumptious! Including voucher code final bill was absolutely affordable.

Before booking it is worth while looking to see what vouchers are available via the Internet . There is often 25% off mid week. The surroundings are pleasant, the menu offers a good choice of basic Italian food but sometimes the service can be a little hit and miss.

A group of 8 of us went to celebrate a birthday. They provided "Happy Birthday" napkins, but nothing else. The food was generally pretty good, but the pudding I had was disappointing as it was a chocolate mess and not worth what I paid for it. However, the service was friendly and they dealt well with problems like the cold... More
