We had a very nice lunch here (midweek). The service was excellent, very friendly, and a nice atmosphere. I really enjoyed the 'Tagliatelle asparagus & pancetta carbonara' and my wife chose the 'Ravioli Marittimi' which she also enjoyed. The ice cream desserts were also very enjoyable and filling. We will definitely return for another meal here. TIP: It is worth... More

We go here quite often and 9 times out of 10 it's a fantastic visit with the odd occasion where the service is slow. The food always tastes great and is piping hot when it gets to the table. One big downside is that it is almost always cold in there no matter where you sit! So make sure to... More

I have never eaten at an 'Ask' before but after being given some vouchers as a birthday gift I was looking forward to giving it a try. I booked a table about 6 days in advance but couldn't get a table until 8.30pm which was a little late for us really but booked the slot anyway. Obviously with it being... More

After a long and busy day I fancied a beer and a decent Italian. I hadn't been to Ask for some years and was not disappointed by the return visit. The meatballs starter was good and spicy but not over-facing and complimented by the Messina Bira. I followed this with the Tagliatelli Gamberoni which was truly excellent and finished off... More

Pleasant staff but food tasteless. My husband and I had a voucher as a gift. We had a chicken an mushroom pasta but it was tasteless. Poor parking. You would have to park in a car park so would be expensive. Not a cheap place to eat. Pleasant surroundings.

Fantastic & friendly atmosphere. Felt welcome as soon as we arrived as it was quite late. Amazing food as well. Our waitress was a girl called Bronte and she was friendly and polite throughout our stay. Very happy with our meal today :-) :-) X.

this restaurant is our favourite in colchester. It offers excellent quality food (large portions) at reasonable prices, excellent service, a good selection of wines and more often than not money off vouchers online (ours was 25% off all food for up to 8 people) nice atmosphere too.
