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.

    We were very disappointed with our food. Two of our parties order Caesar salad with chicken. Very dry and lettuce wasn’t fresh. My husband had omelette. Eggs over cooked. I ordered gluten free pasta and the brought out a pizza. They did comp the pasta dish. We were celebrating graduation and bdays. The dessert of cannolis were not fresh tasting either. The wait staff were friendly. Would not go back.

    Appears more high end than it is. We would’ve been better off cooking at home. Waiting 15 mins before being seated, even though we had a reservation. Waitress gave us water, took our order was never seen again - a different individual brought us our meal. Husband has the Alfredo with chicken, chicken was tough and Alfredo was bland. I had the fusilli bolognese and for a bolognese, it had zero depth of flavor. We shared some Calabrian fries, which seemed to have nothing Calabrian about it. All in all, it isn’t worth the money. Try another local pasta place or cook at home.

    We had an excellent waiter. The person who brought out the food brought main meal before appetizers and drinks. No apologizes except from waiter. The food was at the most passable. The noise level disconcerting. We did not get the appetizers and drinks were awful. They charged us the full amount. We will never go back.

    Arricia is a go to place for a business discussion or an intimate meal. We've been going there for years, and even though many newer fine restaurants have popped up in the area, Arricia still offers something unique in the Auburn-Opelika area.

    Worst service we have had in years. Server never asked if anyone would like a refill, we had to ask each time after waiting prolonged time for her to return to the table. Server left empty dishes on the table after we had finished and ordered dessert. Dessert came out before they were cleared. Might be understandable if the restaurant had been full, sadly that was not the case. Because we were a party over 6 they added a gratuity. Generally add additional but not this time. Had we not been celebrating a birthday with friends I would have asked that it be removed. Bad service made an otherwise great meal lack luster.

    Due to an Ariccia onboarding session (according to our server), our party of 4 waited a little over an hour to get our food. Unacceptable. I completely understand team building with your new staff, but not at the expense of good customer service, which includes timely service of food. Your restaurant appears to have had enough capacity to handle the crowd yesterday. Just not well executed. Instead of recommending Ariccia without qualifications as I have done in the past, I'd hesitate now based on this experience.

    Not our usual stellar experience! Hostess on the phone for 5-7 minutes when we arrived, never acknowledged us. We finally just went and sat in the lobby, poor training. Food was overdone, burger a mushy mess, too much lettuce, mushrooms and sauce, collapsed, wine not properly cooled. French fries were delicious. Our server was delightful as usual.
