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.

    Service was rough. Practically had to beg for a wine list - wasn’t given one when we were seated. After waiting 15+ minutes and not having anyone come by, I went to the host stand to ask for a wine list. I was told it was on the menu and also given the dessert wine list, and I asked “these are the only wines you have?” Then I was handed the cocktail menu for Piccolo. I said “you don’t have a wine list for the restaurant?” THEN I was finally given a wine list. We ordered appetizers. They came out fairly quickly. After we ordered entrees, we didn’t see our server or our food for about an hour. Once our food finally came, we simply asked for to go boxes. We also ordered dessert (it was my birthday after all 🤷🏼‍♀️). Two to go, one for the table. All came out in to go boxes. He said “sorry, they put them all in to go boxes.” Dropped the check and walked away. Had to go to the bartender to ask her to hunt him down to order dessert drinks. Pretty embarrassing to bring family from out of town for this. Won’t be back for a while.

    I like this place. It’s nice but relaxed. Good food and drinks. Our waiter was super nice but could have been a bit more attentive. Had to spend time trying to flag him down for things we needed a couple of times. Still a very nice evening

    Big fan of the porcetta. Husband had the Atticus burger and son loved the pepperoni pizza. Said it was the best pep pizza he’s ever had with the dough cooked just right.

    Two meals were great, two meals were terrible(and expensive)! Music was too vast and loud. Would be better to stick to nice jazz ambiance!! I enjoyed my Mother’s Day lunch there, as mine was one of the better meals! Card and flower was a sweet gesture and I thank you!

    Normally one of our favorite restaurants in Auburn, our last trip was not good. We were one entre' different than what was ordered, the other entre' was extremely mediocre, our bread (purchased as an appetizer) arrived less than one minute before our entree's came and our iced tea was never refilled. Because of our previous experience at Ariccia, we will be back at least once but without the enthusiasm of previous visits.

    Sometimes a hotel restaurant is just OK and sometimes it’s spectacular. Arricia falls into the latter category. Inventive, well-balanced craft cocktails, delicious and lovingly house-made food, perfectly attentive service and a beautiful and very comfortable atmosphere combined to provide us with a perfect evening. Can’t wait for my next visit to try something new!

    This is a special place!! We didn’t know what to expect and what a fabulous surprise they had in store for us. Each dish was unique and flavorful; nothing basic about it. We had a wonderful server who was educated on the menu and was very engaging with us. I can’t wait to return to Auburn and dine here again.

    Great ambiance and very good service. We have eaten here many times and always had a good experience. The food this visit was ok. My wife had a past dish that she loved. My daughter and I both had the “signature dish” which is a Porchetta. Unfortunately is was dry and flavorless. The chef tops it with a chutney of some sort which is nice and the purée and vegetable that goes with the pork is also good. But the pork itself was just not good at all. I recommend this restaurant if you are in the Auburn area, but don’t order the Porchetta.

    Brunch menu provided nice selections. They corrected an incorrect order quickly after a slight disagreement with the server (gorgonzola is blue cheese) - had to ask for butter/jam for toast several times. Food was delicious once it was corrected. Restaurant is very pretty.
