The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable, but we felt a bit pushed. Courses would arrive before we had finished the previous course. The food was very good and we will go back. The bar however, is open to the bar and it was full of drunk people celebrating a sporting event and it was tough hearing conversation over all the cheering in the bar.

Fish was under cooked and room temperature. Menu is disappointing with few traditional Italian options.

Dinner- felt like we needed some Italian bread with our entres. But the food was excellent. We will eat there again and recommend it to others.

Breakfast-very good. We didn't care for the hashbrown casserole, but everything else was excellent.

Always have the best experience at Ariccia! One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. They didn’t have the carbonara on the menu, but made the dish just for me! The customer service is always top notch and will be back again soon!

Haven’t been for a few years. Food was excellent! Service was excellent!! Parking … oh my … really NOT good. Structure is confusing and a long walk once you figure out where you can park. Hopefully they can figure a way to make it easier.

It started out odd. The host asked us to wait on the waiter since he just got 2 tables.
Pretty empty restaurant at holiday break. So we had to ask if bar was OK to sit.
Got seated at table in a bit very romantic spot for a table for two.
I'm sorry to say that this waiter was very inattentive. Perhaps new. The host kept coming to assist. Maybe understaffed.
Not proficient in cutlery needs.
Never asked us we needed another drink or more water.
They decided to offer dessert. Too bad it was a burned tart.
What's a frustration for me is having a reservation in my name with my card and the waiter automatically assumes to give the bill to my husband.
Ask, don't assume. Because you lost your tip that way. I'm in town for work and worked all day to a disappointing end.

My wife and I love this place. The food is generally great and we love the ambience of the restaurant. It was very quiet with very few other diners. This time the food was good, but under seasoned. Server was prompt and attentive. Our cocktails were both great.

Food was terrible. Basic caesar salad way overdressed, focaccia bread was mushy, pizza was bland, signature dish porchetta was a 2" circle of dried up pork surrounded by 2" circle of "pork belly" which was 100% pure fat. When I complained to the manager about their porchetta, he proceeded to argue that it was supposed to be like that. When I told him I had eaten porchetta at many places and it never looked like that, he kept arguing. Finally I said, well I don't want to eat that or pay $27 for it and then he offered me something else. So I ordered the butternut squash ravioli which was awful. Mushy overdone ravioli smothered in pesto AND butternut squash puree with large chunks of grilled HAM on top! WTF? Being in Auburn, my expectations were low but you can't execute on basic pizza and ravioli then you shouldn't be an Italian restaurant.

Enjoyed Thanksgiving buffet, decent variety of items, some not labeled. Service was great. Employees carving Roast Beef and Turkey did not understand how to carve. Odd bits and pieces laid out for the taking.

We were not told that our 2pm reservation would give us 20 minutes to enjoy our thanksgiving. The girl that served us was right there saying the buffet was closing. $328 for empty food containers and nothing to enjoy
We live here in Auburn and had out of town guests. You all really made a great impression

I paid $225 for two buffet tickets ($65 each), bottle of wine ($45) a tip of $30 that I had no choice in paying. . .all for two plates of mediocre food. This is totally overpriced.

Football weekend so restaurant was crazy busy. We felt super rushed the whole meal. The mushroom appetizer was cold and hard to cut and I was not impressed with the meal that was described as one of the 100 meals you should have before you die. If that’s in top 100, I’m afraid to see what the other 99 are. I really want to like this restaurant but I’ve eaten here twice and left disappointed both times.

The four of us each had a different menu item and all were excellent. Service was good and our waitress was knowledgeable and able to answer all questions. She was spread thin across several tables so the beverage refills were a. bIt slow, but she was working hard. It got a pretty noisy as the place filled up but the food made it worthwhile. We’ll go back.
