Inspired by a hilltop town of palaces, vineyards and poets, Ariccia Cucina is a modern Italian escape. Small plates of arancini and fresh bruschetta to share, herbs tucked into slow-roasted porchetta, vino bianca and rosso on the tables, conversations buzzing and glasses clinking—at long last, a taste of authentic Italy. 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.

Not our first time at Arricia by any means. One of the hidden-in-plain-sight gems in Auburn. We had the rigatoni bolognese, steak, two spaghetti and meatballs in our group of four, and everyone was very pleased with their food and our server, Jack. A very pleasant evening with friends from California who love it here and plan to retire here on Lake Martin.

We had a lovely dinner celebrating a birthday. Food was fresh and scrumptious. At our request, the pastry chef made a delectable chocolate birthday cake.

With other choices in Auburn I don’t think we will be returning to Ariccia. We shared the bruschetta appetizer which was like nothing I’d ever eaten before - and wouldn’t want to again. It was crumbly focaccia bread with sliced grape tomatoes and a few capers with a balsamic drizzle on top. Looked great but the taste was off. We each had pasta and a glass of wine and the bill was more than $80. My pasta (ravioli) was simple ravioli with a mushroom sauce but the sauce was so vinegary I couldn’t finish it. My daughter was hoping for the cacio e Pepe but that was no longer on the menu. Overall - there are many places I’d choose before heading back here.

First try of this restaurant. Had the Porchetta, which is listed as one of the 100 dishes to have in Alabama before you die. Glad I got that behind me. Not good, and I don't know whether I can take another 99 of those. At least the excellent server we had could tell and didn't hesitate to remove from the table and the bill. The service saved the day. I will say that we dined on a Sunday - maybe the A-team wasn't in the kitchen that night. The atmosphere is not bad at all in this restaurant, and we've used the hotel and the bar in the past and found them both excellent.

Dear Sandman, Thank you for the feedback on your experience from Sunday night. I am sorry to hear that the Porchetta did not meet your expectations and I will share this feedback with our team. I am glad that you did experience great service on this most recent visit and have enjoyed our restaurant in the past. We hope that you will give Ariccia another try soon!

Ariccia seems to be a regular for us and always meets expectations. Food is fresh and some dishes very unique(not just your typical Italian) which I enjoy. All prepared wonderfully. Great, lively bar as well. I enjoy the ambiance and u could tell many feel the same way. Lots of credit to them during this virus time as they have gone to extra links to keep people distanced and comfortable while observing masks and other precautions for seating, occupancy and staff.
Great and friendly service and thanks again for another great evening.

We very much enjoyed the menu and the ambience, Steven our server was absolutely phenomenal, but the food was a major disappointment. Everything was heavily over salted, to the point of being almost in edible. Maybe we just caught an off night For the kitchen, but the place has a lot of potential.

If you are looking for excellent Italian food this is the place to go. We both ordered the Porchetta Di Arricia which was excellent. The restaurant had separated the tables and we felt quite safe. As this was an anniversary dinner we received a complimentary desert. We will be back.

Food was good, but service was subpar. We sat at our table for over 15 minutes before our server came to take drink orders. There were multiple servers and only a few occupied tables in the restaurant so I’m not sure what the hold up was and he didn’t offer an explanation either. Overall not a bad experience, but was just hoping for more.

Had occasion to travel from Montgomery to Auburn. As is our custom, we look for Italian restaurants when we're out of town because Montgomery has NO decent Italian food. We tried Ariccia and it was excellent. We will be back.

We both had the rigatoni bolognese - it's delicious and huge. We could have split it and still taken a bit home. As it is, we had another meal at home and still enough for a small lunch for one.

Lovely restaurant!
Would like a little more variety on the main menu since it is a large hotel.
I understand it is Italian- however thise that cannot eat pasta have to leave the hotel to find a little variety.
Food was very seasoned- even salty.
The meat sauces were strong and garlicy, the grits were very very salty.
Good portions, very good service.
Thank you!

We were there to celebrate a birthday, and the family thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive, and responsive to all requests. Noise level was quiet enough to easily hold conversations and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We look forward to dining there again in the future!
