Description: Roughly translated from Sardinian, Ai�� means ���come and join us���, it���s an appropriate title for one of Bath���s most welcoming restaurants. Currently the only restaurant in the South West specialising in Sardinian cuisine, Ai��, on George Street ��� close to the Assembly Rooms and The Circus ��� is a unique dining proposition, providing Bath���s gastronomes with an opportunity to step outside of the Italian comfort zone. A modern interior inspired by the warm tones and natural materials of a traditional trattoria leads through to a suntrap courtyard just made for enjoying Ai�����s summery cuisine. Head chef Roberto Lilliu puts years of experience working in Mediterranean kitchens to use here, with the menu full of the warm flavours of Southern Europe.

Nice to find somewhere a bit different. The Sardinian flatbreads were a great starter. We asked for one of the vegetarian pasta starters to be served as a main, & it was delicious. Unfortunately, it was rather quiet but it was a Monday lunchtime!

Really enjoyed our meal at this delightful restaurant. The staff, the maitre d' and especially our waitress were helpful and fun. We asked to sit outside which was fine although we were the only people doing so. Food was terrific, we shared starters with the beef carpaccio really good, not the usual, Somerset beef finely sliced. All four mains were... More

From an hour or so spent on the terrace, it's clear that this restaurant suffers from its position on the 'upper' side of George Street, the 'lower' side seeing just about all the potential passing trade. There's varying degrees of 'excellent'. For different reasons, I've been awarding a lot of 'excellents' lately; perhaps some of them should have been a... More

This restaurant us quaint and practically located for walking distance from the centre, attractions and from the long stay car park. We read the reviews that rated it 4th on Trip Advisor and went for our 5th anniversary. The menu is very seafood heavy, with few Italian classics that you'd generally find in an Italian restaurant. We ordered the mussels... More

I found this restaurant on another website first, they were recommending it. When I saw the tripadvisor reviews and ratings I was really put off from going there, but boy am I glad we went after all! First of all, the restaurant offers outdoor eating, and on a sunny day like we had, the terrace will be sunny and very... More

We ordered the antipasta platter to share which came with a good quality cured meat selection. There were a reasonable choice of specials available as both starters and main. The fish was excellent and my wife's steak main was cooked perfectly. We opted to share the pannacotta which tasted amazing and a refreshing end to the meal. Would definitely visit... More

Terrible service and mediocre food. The worst vinegar served as over priced wine. Frankly there are better ways to spend your money. My advice is give it a miss.

Dear Mr pippiphooray, thank you for your kind remarks. I am glad you took the time to register to tripadvisor especially for this review. Your insights are most useful in helping us improve our customer service. However, I do wish you pointed out your discontent with the wine at the table at least I could have addressed the issue personally... More
