A word from Ariccia Italian Trattoria & Bar
Ariccia is Auburn’s home for fresh, rustic Italian cuisine. From homemade pastas and hearth-baked pizzas, to sizzling steaks and grill-fired fish, our chef-prepared dishes use regional ingredients served at the peak of flavor and freshness. Add in a great wine list and signature cocktails, and Ariccia is always the place to go. Our large open kitchen invites you into an exciting culinary world. The cozy fireside lounge or bar are great places to relax after work with a delicious drink and appetizer from the Bar Menu. Or catch up with friends and enjoy beautiful weather with al fresco dining on the open-air patio.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I'd like to see a more clearly written menu, and a few more wallet-friendly wines. Otherwise, they're doing everything right."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The cannelloni with rabbit was gummy, the pasta over cooked and the amount of rabbit overwhelming. I'd never have ordered if I'd realized it would be served in a cast iron skillet. It seemed more enchilada than pasta; the crispy prosciutto was superfluous."

  • "We always eat here when visiting Auburn! We love it! We love the hotel too!"

  • "We Were A Little Nervous When We Saw Rabbit Ravioli However It Was Delicious. Friendly Staff Too! Enjoyable Experience."

  • "Happy with service. Fig pear pizza was amazing. The peach cobbler was home run. My husbands pasta was great. He got chocolate mousse. It was very frozen but he liked it. Thank you."

  • "18 years local and have previously enjoyed this hotel - chose my daughters wedding/reception here. Unfortunately, I think Arricia is bound to price their menu in line with hotel price point goals vice the local market competition. Less than a mile away is Amsterdam's, The Acre, and Hamilton's which have better food and are better priced. Arricia has huge potential.... but the food is just "good", the wine bottles are overpriced by a factor of 3 compare to retail purchase (along with low WS scored by glass selection) while the other restaurants mentioned have much better food/wine and are reasonably priced. As a local, I will likely not return and will definitely NOT recommend Ariccia unless they improve the food/wine selection and pricing"

  • "Being a residence of Auburn, AL now for 7 years the resteraunt scene has become dull. The owners and chefs have changed and food has begun to taste as cheap as the places get it for. It seemed as if all hope was lost for Auburn and Opelika was the only hope. But Aaricia came in to save the day! My wife and I went with only a hope and they delivered! The atmospher was romantic yet inviting and calming. The service was timly, friendly, knowledgable of the the food, and good looking. The food must have been prepared by the hands of Olympian gods in the kitchen because it was incredible. I highly recommend this resteraunt to anyone and let it save your (dinner) day here in Auburn."

  • "Food was excellent. Some of the best Italian in the area. Service by our waitress was excellent also. However, the head chef came to visit every table after their meals except for ours. He definitely saw us because he made eye contact. He definitely put a sour taste in our mouth after an otherwise great evening."

  • "We went not knowing it was "Tues. Nite Pasta Bar" night, and we're very happily surprised. The choices @ the pasta bar were limitless, and the price for unlimited pasta bar, salad, and bread was excellent."

  • "My husband booked this for Valentine's Day. The concept was great, with roses for the ladies, and a dessert and coffee bar, but the long wait for our food was very disappointing. We watched one family wait so long that they had their food packed to go--very sad experience. I not only didn't enjoy myself, but I felt badly for them as well. I have mixed reviews about the food. My husband had the filet, and it was excellent. I had a seafood dish that was just ok. The atmosphere was nice, but overall, it was a very disappointing experience."

  • "First, I tried to write this on the private note, not for a review but your format would not allow it (too many characters). Here is what I wrote: We made reservations early but were put at a less desirable spot near the entrance. It was uncomfortably cold (the front door to the hotel was wide open in the coldest winter in years). No server appeared for a full 15 minutes. Our server was never to appear; we were served by a very nice young lady who actually had responsibilities at other tables. I had cioppino with raw potato and a piece of broken shell in the broth. We had to ask for utensils. Disappointing."

  • "Known about the Ariccia for a while now and just recently tried it for the first time. Excellent atmosphere, service was great, dinner was fantastic. Desert and Appetizer touch pricy considering their size, both were little more than a single bite, however it was a very good single bite. Being a family on a budget, Ariccia is not the kind of place we can frequent, but it is certainly on our list of places we will return to. Oh, and HIGHLY recommend Piccolo. Live jazz (Friday and Saturday, I think), laid back and very comfortable place. Only bar in Auburn you can actually sit and carry on a conversation at normal volume. Piccolo, is going to be a monthly night out for us."

  • "It was Christmas Eve. The service wasn't that great, and the food wasn't the best either. I have heard good things about breakfast and the Tuesday night pasta bar, but on this night, I wasn't impressed. I will choose other restaurants in the area for dinner. The best thing about it was the atmosphere. Very modern and clean looking. Also, the Conference Center usually caters good dinners, so not sure why this was so bad. Probably just a combination of poor service and uninspiring food."

  • "We were at Ariccia's special Christmas Eve dinner, which was prix fixe and was advertised as being duck confit, but was changed without explanation to short ribs. The lobster bisque was quite good, as was the service, and the dessert that came with the meal was exemplary. This is as close as Auburn gets to fine dining and aside from being overpriced for a meal involving short ribs, it was a pleasant experience overall."

  • "I went on a Tuesday which is pasta night. All of the chefs were friendly and great to watch, and the all you can eat pasta was great too."

  • "I took my friend there for her birthday. The food has obviously been sitting for awhile. The pancake I got from the breakfast bar was like a piece of card board. I was very disappointed considering how much I paid!"
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "This recent dining experience was not our usual dining experience for Aricia's. The pasta was cooked too much or it was prepared too soon (dry and matted). The sauce was not the usual well flavored prep and the marinara was extremely thin. Service was average. My wife and I were celebrating our Anniversary at one of our favorite venues. We were disappointed"

  • "Ariccia is one if the very best restaurants in the area. The service is excellent, food is always delicious."
