Good position at the top of town, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle(especially at this time of year). There was no need to worry that a return visit would disappoint. We chose two different fish mains from the specials that day and it was delicious. Good recommendations for wine by the glass and waiting staff attentive and... More

Have always been intrigued by this Sardinian restaurant just on the limits of the main shopping area of Bath. My wife and I had a rare day off work together and with no children were looking somewhere nice for lunch and I thought of AIO. The restaurant isn’t very wide, but we were surprised how far back it went. That... More

A local recommendation from the respected 2107 Good Food Guide, just published. Our firsts visit and we we were not disappointed. Good welcome by Proprietor and Staff, atmosphere good too, although perhaps lighting a little bright? Wine list started around £18 and we found a very drinkable Italian Pinot Grigio, followed by an excellent glass of a house red. Really... More

This had been recommended to us and did not disappoint. The food and service was excellent and a little bit different from the usual Italian food. We particularly enjoyed the courgette chips as part of our shared starters and the main courses were all great . Mains included fish and rabbit which was cooked like a roulade stuffed with pancetta.... More

We booked very last minute on a whim. When we arrived it was totally empty apart from one other table - this seemed a bit odd as a Saturday evening near Christmas. But, it was warm, lovely music and every single member of staff looked up and gave us a warm hello as were escorted through to the totally empty... More

Very nice restaurant, with a romantic ambience and serving authentic Sardinian food. The linguine with crab and bottarga was excellent although the octopus carpaccio lacked a little flavour. Bath has a number of Italian restaurants, but this is one of the better ones.

This restaurant where I had eaten previously let us down this time. Most of the dishes of the day were not available, they had run out. What we ordered from the main menu varied between mediocre to poor quality. We sought the manager's advice regarding the Sardinian wines on the wine menu. Everything he said about specific wines was incorrect,... More

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.
