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.

The seafood risotto was excellent and so was the Chocolate dessert I had, like a tart but all chocolate. Yummy!! Also had a lovely merlot which tasted of pear... read more

I had booked our table for 2 and we were seated immediately. The waitress was really friendly and took our drinks order and left us to decide on our food. The place was extremely busy but the waiting staff were prompt throughout our visit. I wanted the Ravioli Di Porcini Con Spinaci but was told this was now off the... More

Having eaten here last summer, we booked the day before for our Sunday lunch. We would have been able to eat there even if we had not booked as there were plenty of free tables. Our waitress Viola was lovely - a very interesting person, but also good at her job and most welcoming. The food was excellent - my... More

I reserved a table online as a surprise for my partners birthday, as I thought it might guarantee us a table. We reserved a table for 1pm, but arrived at 12:50. It was fairly busy, and the staff looked as if they were struggling. The waitress said she would see to us "in just a sec". When I mentioned that... More

Today we were served by the manager he was so friendly and very attentive. I don't normally write reviews but this place really deserves the positive feedback. This is now my favourite place to eat. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I booked the table online earlier in the day for the evening and got a confirmation email but when I got there, there wasn't a table available because they said it takes a few hours for them to receive the booking email! Ten minutes later we got our table and waited another 20 minutes before we could order our food... More

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
