Description: Roughly translated from Sardinian, Ai�� means ���come and join us...
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.

Would recommend this restaurant for a very good tasty meal. All staff were polite, cheerful and helpful and the food was served with a smile. The waiter asked on more than one occasion if we were satisfied. My husband and I sat in the outdoor patio which although quite busy had a very good... read more

We were traveling with our teenagers when we sent them back to the room so we could have a little "couple time". This was exactly what we wanted: a quiet little restaurant to share a cheese plate and have a glass of wine. Wines and cheeses were excellent and beautifully presented. Highly recommend!

Our waiter was extremely friendly and had an in depth understanding of how each of the meals was cooked and was able to advise us on what... More

Following an incredibly "I'm on holiday" lunch, we set out to top lunch with a great dinner. Randomly selecting Aio, I was rocked by most of the food, and my wife was rocked by the service. Still full of lunch (I almost said stuffed but that means something else in the UK), we got two starters, one of which was... More

Hello I am an Italian Chef and I think I Understand something about loving food. I am really upset about that day and normally I would avoid to be so bad in my reviews but really we paid too much for that very poor meal. The fregola meal was not fresh and the chicken was not cooked I enjoyed just... More

My other half and I were in Bath for the weekend for her birthday, and were looking for something simple but tasty. We happened upon this place, which is not in the centre, simply for a Prosecco. But after reading the menu and speaking with the waiter, we thought this place look like a good option. We had the BRUSCHETTE... More

This excellent restaurant in Bath often goes unnoticed. If you like Italian food this is that style with the freshness and flavour of Sardinia. A good mixture of fresh fish and good meat dishes including game. They now have a new wine menu many coming direct from Sardinia. The staff are always friendly and accommodating and happy to consider our... More

Last minute find whilst looking for a drink sat in the sun, little seating area on the high pavement perfect for watching the world go by, in fact we sat and had a couple of drinks as it was so nice. Lovely friendly staff and having scanned the food menu it looks well worth a try.
