Myself and 2 friends ate here on a night out midweek. Extremely good value for money, 2 courses for £10.95 deal on vouchercloud. Good service and lovely tasting food, very impressed with the puddings and how they were served.

Went for a family meal and was sorely disappointed by the portion sizes. For £12 I got a handful of pasta and about half a field mushroom. The food was almost stone cold and the pasta was undercooked. If it hadn't have taken so long to get I might have sent it back ( the place was pretty much empty).... More

My friend and I went to the cinema and then on to Ask. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food came quite quickly and was excellent. Our problem was with the oil bottles on the tables. They are placed on the edge of the table and as my friend took her seat the oil bottle went flying on... More

Description
Housed in the centre of Ipswich, ASK Italian offers casual Italian dining at affordable prices. This ASK Italian restaurant has recently gone through an extensive refurbishment. We've created a restaurant with a distinctive new look inspired by modern Italian design. And with the help of our expert friends, including awarding-winning chef Theo Randall, we've created a menu that features a range of simple, classic Italian food and an all Italian wine list.
