The service was outstanding. My ribs were tender, but the serving was sparse. My wife had roast chicken with mushrooms and risotto. Unfortunately. The chicken was overcooked and dry. We both enjoyed our salads and the bread.
We've been coming here for years and food and service are consistently good. My prime ribeye was overcooked (well instead of medium-well - didn't want to take the time to wait for another) but the taste was good and the meat was pretty tender nonetheless. Haley is an outstanding server.
While I appreciate that there is a new executive chef and there are going to be menu changes, the execution of those changes was not great. I had the carbonara and it was very underwhelming, bordering on poor. The service continues to be very good.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Three of us tried the Porchetta and it was great! Great cocktails and wine to match our meal. Check it out.
I know students serve us but there were so many mistakes. Missed a full order etc. We ask for wine, you were out, asked for another one you were out. You said you keep 4 bottles of each wine but Easter wiped you out. You have too many wines on your list and perhaps keep 10 bottle each and cut you list down.
Our server Rose was great and the meal excellent!
Server never checked to see if our appetizers were correct so I waited 10 minutes with the wrong salad. Fettuccine Alfredo was exceptional. Disappointing when you have to pay for bread at an Italian restaurant...
Delicious food and great service. Great experience.
First time guests celebrating a 75th birthday from out of town. Not a good dining experience at all. Table was for six; not five which is what our reservations were for five. They sat us right in the middle of the room and there were several large groups at the bar area who were extremely loud. When I asked to be moved they didn’t accommodate us.
Then, when we went to order drinks, the waiter, who had to go ask someone else whenever we had a question , didn’t know anything, they were out of Reisling and white zienfendel !!
Reservations were at 7:00 pm and when we went to order they were already out of porchetta.
Overall, I wasn’t impressed.
We had a bad table. We were sat in front of everyone and the noise bouncing back made it difficult to hear. Our service was excellent.
I love this place!
I have been making carbonara for the last 2 years or so, and having it here absolutely blew me away and made me reevaluate my recipe!
Amazing service, and amazing food, I would recommend to anyone who loves fine dining that doesn't leave you broke!
The carbonara was quite good, and I really liked the affogato the waiter recommended. I wish the hummus came with another piece of bread. The outdoor seating was lovely, but the seats were obviously coated in pollen.
The ambience was great and the cocktail I ordered was great. The service was exceedingly slow, and the food was average. I have had carbonara across the globe to include in Italy and this was NOT one of my favorite. It was watery, more boiled than cooked and I could not get the flavor nor taste the creamy sauce. It felt like a boiled preparation to me with no seasoning. My husband ordered the ribeye and he was disappointed at the first presentation of it though the waiter was nice enough to give him a second try at it (cooked so rare he could not eat it). I would say the waiters were nice and courteous and gave us an extra discount. so nice ambience; I would not go back for the food. perhaps for the cocktail.
It was great to food was perfect and the service was outstanding. The waiter was very nice and was constantly checking on us making sure we had what we needed and they had valet parking for free.
Everything was great, except nobody came to my table after my order was served to me. So, I could never ask the waitress for any condiments, which I wanted, and which I told her about right before I was seated. Hence, only two stars for service.
Our server, Devin is now in my top 10 of best servers ever!
Great place to have dinner with family
Always so nice there. We ate outside and it was beautiful and we had the sweetest waitress..
Fantastic! The bruschetta was average - the rest of the food was AMAZING! Was had pastas, plates, and focaccia breads. We were there for a Saturday dinner, so the place was busy, but service was good and they were ready for the rush. We will definitely be back to this gem.
Pizza was cold. Pasta and food tasted great.
Haley, our server was wonderful. Explained the menu and took her time with us, she had a mask on but you could tell she was smiling. Wonderful place! Highly recommend
Great service, food, wine!
Fantastic job by the entire staff, we enjoyed a great meal and will definitely be back.
We had a great meal at Ariccia. There were some new appetizer options since the last time we there, and we tried a couple. The oyster scampi was the best I've ever had. Highly recommend.
Absolutely amazing! Our waiter was the kindest human!
The Ariccia Cucina was absolutely wonderful. The ambiance was impeccable. The waitress was very well I touch with our questions and needs. We definitely look forward to coming again.
Food was great!
We were seated quickly and had a server take our drink orders immediately. The Mimosas and Bloody Mary's were very tasty. We both ordered sandwiches, salads and fries. All the food was good. The music was in the background and pleasant, in fact we decided to have another drink each. If you want any condiments for your salad, fries or sandwich, you should order with your food. The sandwich, (grilled chicken on a baguette) only had tomato, lettuce and a slice of cheese, so make sure you get your favorite condiment ordered, when you place your order....otherwise, it will be dry and a little tasteless. The salad (Caesar) and fries were very good.
Price for lunch was great. My wife's food was cold but wait staff made sure it was taken care of immediately. Main course actually came out before the appetizer. I would go back since the service and food was good.
Valentines our server was aware and anticipated our needs. We had dessert flights and drinks which were very good. Overall lovely experience and one I would definitely do again.
We were at Piccalo for Valentines and jazz. Can't wait to go back. Couldn't ask for better music, a warmer atmosphere, or better food. Wonderful experience.
Not a lot of food for your money, but it was good. I wish there were more appetizer options.
Great dinner overall. Food is always superb. Service is always relatively attentive. Definitely not the place to go if you are in a hurry but certainly food that is worth the wait.
great meal for all ages and occasions. Food is excellent as is the service.
Had a wonderful evening/dinner with my daughter and her friend. Service is always spectacular.
Great food and service!
Excellent Italian restaurant, clearly best in Auburn.
Delicious meal and wonderful service. The focaccia is always a great start with their Ariccia salad. Perfect date night.
We ate delicious Focaccia Romana, Wild Mushroom Risotto, Fried Brussels with kumquat marmalade & grana padanos, Salsiccia fennel sausage pizza, and Pancetta & Apple Piadina gorgonzola dolce pizza in the bar near a cozy gas fireplace while sitting in the most comfortable chairs. The fantastic ambiance is hard to beat in the whole Auburn-Opelika area and the perfect place to relax on a Friday evening with your wife and daughter. Taylor Z. is excellent at customer service and is very knowledgeable about the menu. The bar makes a great Old Fashioned drink, but I wish Belgian trippel or quad ales were available on tap or even at all.
Came into Auburn to take our daughter out. She made the recommendations and reservations. We were so surprised and loved everything!
