Italian
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.

    Overall, it was a good experience but definitely not great. This was our second time to this restaurant as we were here for a Campus Tour. Out last visit in 2021 was much better. We all ordered the pasta Fagiole soup which was good although oily from the pork in it. It would have been nice to know what a large bowl of soup it was so we could ordered accordingly. As a result, we had too much food that we couldn’t take home or wrap since we were checking out to leave the following morning on a long drive. The Margarita pizza didn’t have much taste at all and the dough was too mushy and soft. My son liked is fettuccini Alfredo ok, but it got to him. The sea bass was very good and the best thing ordered. Our waitress was ok but had to keep looking for her for things we needed like another drink, pepper, salt… Overall we were a bit disappointed for what we paid.

    Birthday dinner. We ordered the Antipasta Appetizer & our entrees. The appetizer was brought & was very good, but only got to enjoy a few minutes before our entrees were brought out. My ravioli looked as if it had been pre-cooked & sitting under a hot lamp. My husband ordered chicken-no idea how chicken is cooked that quickly unless it was also pre-cooked. He said it was good though. Our waiter apologized for the entrees coming out too quickly as another employee brought them out. He was very attentive. Enjoyed the tiramisu cheesecake for dessert. Atmosphere is nice.

    The service did not match the ambience and food. Our server didn’t know how to open a bottle of wine and we were served incomplete courses for our party of four for our salad and entrees.

    We have eaten here three times now. The first time was amazing (5/5), the second time was good (4/5), and this time, the music was too loud and seemed wrong for the environment, the food was blah (some of the same dishes we had before), although the service was still good (except she brought two glasses of wine when we ordered one—and charged for two…because they were so low, they looked like two half glasses so we thought she had just taken it upon herself to split it since we said we would share a glass). For the price, I’ve had better meals. Our first meal here was almost twice as much but the food was so much better…not sure why it was such a miss on 12/5/22 and not sure if we will go back, but since our other two experiences here were good, we probably should try again.

    The food was great, but the service was really slow. We had a reservation and actually arrived about 10 minutes but were not seated until about 20 minutes after the reservation time. Once seated it took another 15 - 20 minutes before the server came by to fill our water glasses and take drink orders. After this, the experience went more efficiently, but it not take 30-45 minutes past your reservation time be seated and addressed.

    Incredible experience at breakfast. Server's are super attentive, and the food is delicious. My fiance and I went for the Thanksgiving buffet. Literally my second bite was turkey. Got a bone that cut my gums and chipped my tooth. The server was very empathetic. She got the GM, who still wanted to charge me the kid's buffet price of $35, after just two bites. I expected more from management. After I complained, she did take my meal off the check, because I wasn't able to eat.

    The food quality (ie. temperature, ingredients used, etc) did not meet the expectation at the price point. We had a reservation for thanksgiving lunch buffet at 2pm, were seated at 2:15 and then given a long explanation that they would be closing the buffet 3pm and be sure to eat quickly. However, when making the reservation, there was a detailed description of the time allotted for your party based on its size and as a party of 5 we were to be given 2 hours for our meal. We felt rushed and were reminded of the closure repeatedly throughout the meal. If it wasn’t for the company I was in it would have been a miserable experience.
