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.

Food and service were fantastic. Everything from the drinks to the desserts were absolutely spot on. The porchetta was fantastic and the truffle ravioli was outstanding. A perfect experience from the entire staff. Will definitely be back sooner than later.

Always enjoy going to Ariccia, whether for drinks, breakfast, brunch or dinner. Part of the Auburn experience when visiting our student, and something he enjoys as he doesn't come here on his own. The reservation process is a challenge, and should be improved upon.

Chef Miguel has done an amazing job with the menu. The food is fresh and delicious and is accompanied by great service! Southern hospitality with delicious Italian food. Pastas are fresh/made-in-house and desserts are to die for!

We had eight guys from Hilton Head Island on a golf trip to the Grand National Resort and ate dinner at Ariccia Cucina one night. Staff was very welcoming, ambiance was pleasant and food was excellent. We got good value for our money and all deemed the evening a great success.

The waiter was clueless about most things we asked about like drink specials and information on the menu. She was missing in action most of the time. So much so that we ordered two drinks at a time because you never knew when she was coming back.

We had an error with or order. My dinner was wrong. Did not see our server for a while, but a manager came by and said she would correct it. I finally got my correct dinner but had to wait for a while. We always eat here on Friday evenings when we come in for football games but was disappointed this week.

Food was good, service was horrible. Waiter basically ignored us. Never checked on us and someone else delivered our food. The food tasted good but probably won’t be coming back due to poor service.

This was our first visit for double birthday celebration. The ambience was very nice and our server, Erin had a great personality. We ordered fried cauliflower and arancini for appetizers and both were delivered room temp. The flavors were good but should have been nice and hot. We also ordered carpaccio which was quite nice. The focaccia bread was perfect!

Entrees just weren’t impressive at all. I had a. $32 16oz ribeye special. The entire meal was a steak and french fries, which again were delivered room temp. I finally sent something back and the fries were very good, steak was just OK, not worth being called a “special”. My daughter in law had chicken piccata and the chicken was way overcooked. My wife added grilled shrimp to a veggie ravioli dish and they also had to be sent back as they were room temp.

The sommelier was knowledgeable and sadly the wine was the best part of the dinner.

Was really hoping to find an Italian place we could visit often, but this wont be it.

We had a dinner reservation but were asked to wait a few minutes, which was fine, until we were led to a table that had been unoccupied and was set the entire time we waited. It was just steps inside the entry and I couldn't even sit down because the waitress was waiting on the adjacent table. I just stood there awkwardly for a couple of minutes and then was able to sit. I felt like I was in the lap of the party of four behind me. I pointed to another nearby two top but was told it was reserved. The hostess must have sensed that I was unhappy because a manager arrived promptly to seat us at the other table. Our original table was never occupied during our meal. They tried to seat another couple there but they refused. That said, the food and service were great and it is one of my favorite places to eat when visiting AU. It was Family Weekend so I understand they were in demand. We came back the next day for brunch and I wasn't even staying in the hotel. The brunch items were great and I thought it was a very good value. We will return.

After driving around in the parking lot, we found out that valet parking is free with dinner. There was no street or lot parking nearby. It was crowded, but the service was great. It does get loud, but it wasn't a problem. The food was good but the sides they listed as to share were small. The spinach with tomatoes had about 1 tablespoon of greens and a bunch of tomatoes. The fried cauliflower tasted more roasted than fried, but both were very good. The pasta was perfectly al dente. My daughter's alfredo sauce wasn't very flavorful, but everyone else's was great. All the desserts we tried were delicious as well. Except for a few hiccups, it was great. We will go back next time we're in town.
