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.

Interesting menu in a very pleasing, stylish setting very centrally situated. Service was brisk and efficient. Food had good bright flavours and the wine list had a number of interesting Sardinian wines.Many wines available by glass and 500ml carafe. I will definitely be back, perhaps to try the suckling pig..... My only complaint was the number of bones in a... More

J'ai passé deux soirées à Bath, et j'y ai dîné deux fois de suite! Plats délicieux et originaux, produits d'excellentes qualité, le patron et le personnel sont adorables. (plat principal de £13 à £18) I spent two evenings in Bath and had my dinner at Aio twice in arow! Aio's meals are delicious and creative, the team is as kind... More

Variable meal. Nice atmosphere and started were nice however one seafood main had issues and had to be returned, although these problems were dealt with well but it should never have left the kitchen!! Wife's semi-freddo was actually an ice cream. Service very erratic, not slow just erratic

We planned to eat quite early, 6:30 on a Tuesday and the restaurant was pretty much empty. We were warmly welcomed and taken to a seat in the garden which is a relaxed place tucked away from the road. It was a warm and sunny evening, just right for dining al-fresco. Service was not quick but we were in no... More

Both meals are going on the "best ever" list. If we could give a 10 star rating, we would. Ate here on our first night and couldn't stop talking about how good it was, so we went back for an encore our last night. Ask to sit on the back patio garden. It is quiet and lovely. And by all... More

We ate here on our first night in Bath, spent two days trying other places and mostly being disappointed, and so went back for our last night in Bath as well. Both meals were outstanding, and if you're lucky enough to be waited upon by Josh, by all means order what he recommends to you. You won't be sorry!

We went to Aio for an early dinner. We had booked but they didn't seem to have a reference of it- despite this they found us a good table anyway. I had the aubergines which were delicious- the crab linguine was also good. The waiter was extremely friendly and helpful. The only negative I would say is that the food... More

We ate here with friends. The food was almost as good as the staff. This is a traditional Italian and the staff really entertain just as you would expect. we had a brilliant evening here and left as they were closing up, but were not hurried out. Will go again

We had high hopes about this restaurant but ended up being so disappointed! Food is overpriced. We ordered a bread-basket and the bread was stale ... and we pointed this out but they didn't even have the decency to offer to remove this from the bill. No attention to detail unfortunately. Won't see us again!
