    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.

Our server, Matthew, was extremely knowledgeable of their food providing excellent suggestions and paired our drinks and wine perfectly. Plus he had a wit and humor that matched ours. Great Job Matthew and thanks for a wonderful service and a fun evening.

    The food was outstanding. However, I ordered an apple pomegranate salad, but there were no pomegranates. Last night, I ordered something without cheese, but it came with cheese. We wanted to order the pork dish that is on the top 100 dishes in Alabama, but they were out of it - on a Thursday. ??? Even so, wonderful dining experience! Excellent service. Friendly & knowledgeable waiters and staff.

    I’ve had the same server twice before, once last night and once about two weeks ago and both times the service was very very slow. Food was brought out quickly though by a food runner but our waitress took awhile. Dinner was very delicious as normal just was a little frustrated with the service. Also the light above our booth had many dead bugs trapped in it.

    Ariccia Cucina’s pizza is on par with the best pizza you can find anywhere. The pizza crust is incredibly fresh and my absolute favorite. We also had a steak, and the sauce they top it with is absolutely delicious! We always eat here when visiting Auburn.

    The appetizers and drinks were good. The noise from the bar area overwhelms the other areas of the restaurant. The ravioli was good but the Alfredo was terrible. My wife and I both likened it to a Lean Cuisine microwave meal. With the price, they are trying to be too fancy for what they are. Doubtful we will go back.

    We ordered wine, bread, salad, and main course. The wine arrived first, then the salad and main course arrived shortly afterward and both at the same time. The bread arrived last, about five minutes after the salad/main course. This is the second consecutive visit where the salad and main course arrive at the same time. The table is so jammed with plates you can’t function well. The food was very good and we will go back, but my wife’s Ravioli was delivered room temp and was not warm. Otherwise, the food is great. We ordered dessert and the Apple Tart was delicious, but again, the tart was room temp. Our waitress left a lot to be desired. She was friendly and polite, but she definitely wanted to push us in and out. Her first visit to the table was, “Are you ready to order?” I prefer ordering a drink and maybe appetizer and perusing the menu while true drinks are delivered. When we finished the main course, the waitress never offered a menu dessert. We had to request it and then she began to make dessert recommendations. The waitress never refilled water glasses and we had to request a box for left overs several times. The service was not good at all. We also had to work around used salad bowls during main course and used main course plates during dessert because they weren’t all cleared . The food makes this place worth returning to, but they need to quit rushing patrons like they’re in a fast food joint.

    Disappointment! They boast of Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, but I had to order 5 different wines before they had one in stock. Then, when the bill came, they charge more than the price on the wine list. Pasta dish was mediocre at best. Waitress was inexperienced, but she got no help from management.
