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.

    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.

    Really great restaurant in the Auburn Hotel where we were staying for an Auburn gymnastics meet. Service was outstanding with good suggestions. The ravioli was so delicious. We had two children with us and they loved their meals from the kids menu just as much as the adults.

The service team seated us quickly and delivered our food with time to enjoy it leisurely. Very convenient to the Gogue Center. Appreciate the complimentary valet service too!

I would like to have some grilled chicken or a shrimp without pasta if possible. Thank you. I had my daughter's wedding reception at the hotel, and it was OUTSTANDING. Best regards Sue Hudson Duran

    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.

    Food quality has significantly gone down since we ate there last a few years back. Nothing about the food was good and we were very disappointed. The focaccia was salty but other than that, tasteless. The half chicken was fine. The Fussilini bolengese just kinda taste like overcooked groundbeef in tomato sauce. The most disappointing dish was the panna cotta - we got it for free since it was my birthday and I wish we had just passed on getting anything at all. It was soupy and undercooked. All around very disappointing. We used to love this place. The wine was always better than the cocktails, but the food was so delicious! We still talk about the focaccia bread we had there a while ago. The waitress was very nice and prompt but didn’t have any knowledge on the food or drinks. She couldn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know. We will no longer be dining here. Auburn has such a good food scene now. Spend your money elsewhere.

    Restaurants in hotels are often overlooked in favor of out-of-the way alternatives. The destination restaurant at which we had planned to dine was closed, and having had many excellent brunches and lunches at Arricia and Piccolo (another Auburn Conference Center dining spot) we decided to try Arricia for dinner. It was an amazing evening. Our dishes were excellent - I had the pork dish recommended by the Alabama Department of Tourism and my wife had the special seafood pasta dish. The special was really special - my wife had a memorable dinner and raved about how flavorful and well-prepared it was. The special's name translates to "Fruit of the Sea" and we highly recommend it. We're enjoying Auburn's foray into hospitality education and the experiences we're having at the Conference Center, Hey Day and The Laurel have been wonderful

    Our party of 3 really enjoyed everything we ordered on our visit at Christmas Eve. For starters we tried the calabrian family style fries (huge bowl) and the Shrimp Bruschetta! Both were great! For dinner we had the Ravioli, Seafood Risotto and Angel Hair Pasta. Everyone loved their entrees and we all had decent portions. The Risotto was especially reasonable at only $17 (special on Christmas menu). For dessert we tried the pana cotta which was also very good. Our server Garrett was very attentive and personable! The dining room was busy but it was a relaxing and fun atmosphere. We will definitely be back!

    Ariccia is not your stereotypical Italian restaurant. It’s more of a southern food meets Italian food type of place. It seemed to me that a lot of the menu is a twist on a classic Italian dish. If you are wanting a more original, hearty Italian dish go to Venditori’s. Ariccia had great service, I wish I could remember our servers name, because he was fantastic and very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and was easy to talk with all night. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed with the food. I got the smallest portion of chicken Alfredo that $28 can buy you in Auburn plus the chicken was burnt and very chewy. Other huge miss, is it’s ridiculous that at an Italian establishment of this price point you have to pay for the table bread. That’s just the definition of being a cheap restaurant in my book.

    Went for Thanksgiving for 2 - $75 per person - Alcohol not included. Food was excellent but with added gratuity the final bill was $210. For 2 people. Either drop the price per person or include alcohol in the price - at least 2 drinks per person. Way too expensive !

    We went in for a Sunday late brunch. Ordered some Italian sparkling and a charcuterie board. The server, Gabriel, was great with excellent timing not to be cloying and not ignoring us. The charcuterie was awesome and PLENTIFUL .. The dining room was pleasant and quickly emptying while we were eating. Definitely not a gameday weekend! The only issue was the background music. Certainly not consistent with an Italian restaurant and was too loud and intrusive. Perhaps because the restaurant was clearing out, but my wife and I couldn't hold a conversation without raising our voices. Otherwise, though, another nice dining experience. Will be back again in the near future to continue exploring the menu.
