    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.

    Service and atmosphere very nice. Pizza was basically a crust with a tiny amount of sauce and cheese. Bread for dinner. Two very small wine pours, each the price of a bottle.

    The food was good, and the ambient was cozy, however there were moments where is was very loud. . The wine was good also, even though the waitress brought the wrong one. Also waitress seem to be pushing us out of the restaurant by the end of the night, and during service she was very intense, asking constantly if we were "ok".

    Highly recommend! I was unsure about a restaurant located in a hotel, but we had the best time! Great energy, great ambience, and great food! The Focaccia Romana was a great start to our meal - so good! And we would all recommend the different entrees we had: Porchetta di Ariccia (loved the pureed cauliflower); Ravioli Estivi (exploding with flavor; one had shaved porchetta and it was extra fabulous); Fettuccine Alfredo (one with chicken, one with shrimp); and the Dentice Arrostito Al Forno. Everyone loved their meals. Portion sizes were generous but not excessive. Service was timely and attentive.

    Ariccia and The Hotel at Auburn room service do a GREAT job at gluten free dining. My daughters and I have Celiac and it’s so nice to not only have safe, but delicious options! More gluten free dessert options would be wonderful - creme brûlée is an easy one, more sorbet options, and flourless cake with ice cream are thoughts. And, gluten and nut free cookies are always a nice surprise after dinner and in room…. Thank YOU for taking such good care of us.
