Description: 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.

“Above average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I came here on a Tuesday Evening in the Easter Holidays with my boyfriend, and luckily they managed to find us a table after waiting 5 or so minutes. They were extremely busy, however we didn't have to wait ages for our food, and the food was of very good quality for the price that we paid. It was only the service that let us down slightly, only visited our table as minimal as possible.

“Family friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Lovely menu, light and airy ambience and perfect for a family lunch. The staff couldn't have been more helpful on our visit which was much appreciated. We visited for a special birthday lunch with our daughter and two grandchildren. Ask is ideal if you have young children. They were supplied with drawing and colouring sheets with crayons which kept them entertained. The food was good and wine fine. Sat near the kitchen there was an unpleasant smell which pervaded the area in which we were located... Ask is not cheap and we were surprised by the extent of the final bill!

“Actually very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Must admit didn't want to eat here, but daughter has been several times and enjoyed the food and reluctantly have to agree. Service was good, would have been nice to have been offered a drink whilst waiting for a table, food was much better than you would expect from this sort of chain.
I have to say we will be back

“Spring clean needed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is another generic Italian restaurant the delivers an acceptable standard of food you would expect from this sort of chain, so little to add from the food front.

What lets this particular restaurant down is its general state of disrepair. Stains on bench seats, dirty chairs, battered walls / bare plaster, toilets with broken flushes etc. I don't want to go on as the staff were great and the service was good, it just felt a bit grotty.

Could be better.

“Family friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Went for two course lunch today with our 8 month old baby. Our waitress was lovely, couldn't do enough to ensure we had everything we needed, we weren't rushed in any way and the food was lovely. Very family friendly.
