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.
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.
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.
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!
My wife and I ate dinner at Arricia Cucina and were very well pleased. The server was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food was plentiful and tasted great. Auburn is fortunate to have this restaurant. Thanks
We ate breakfast. Food and service were both great. Appreciated being able to make a reservation because had to be done in time to catch airport transportation.
The entire Ariccia team made our 16th anniversary very special, we are so glad we decided to spend our special evening with them. From the appetizers to dessert, everything was cooked to perfection and service was extremely attentive. I would recommend Ariccia for any dining occasion, you will not be disappointed!
We definitely enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and the food was delicious!
I didn’t think the bolognese sauce was a good as my last visit. Alfredo was great though.
Excellent service. Great food. Fun night celebrating my 60th birthday with friends and family. Short ribs were super tender with a perfect apple purée, fresh fettuccini Alfredo was perfectly cooked, pepperoni pizza was delicious, butternut squash ravioli with brown butter and shrimp were eaten up! We tried 4 desserts—our favorite was probably the salted caramel gelato. Would go back again.
Nice hotel restaurant. Attractive. Made a reservation. We were seated on time at a table directly under a very cold AC vent that was blasting cold air on us. I asked to be moved if the AC couldn't be adjusted. The young gentleman manager said he wasn't sure that could be done because they had a number of reservations. Ah, I too had a reservation and while half the tables were still empty I didn't want to sit at that table. It was discussed and fixed. The waitress was very happy and pleasant despite maybe having too many tables to handle. My daughter loved the house made ravioli. I went with the "Top 100 meals to have in Alabama" recommended porchetta roast w canalini beans and brussel sprouts glazed w kumquat marmalade. The beans were pretty good. The glazed sprints were good/unique. The porchetta took "fatty" to a new level. It was like a less than moist pork tenderloin wrapped in a one inch thick skin and fat layer. Eh. But the hotel and restaurant were attractive and had a great location. We'll go back to both.
It was a fantastic night. The food was amazing, the beverages refreshing and Crystal our waitress did a fantastic job. Very friendly and served our many needs quickly. She was wonderful. Thank you.
Wonderful ambiance and great service! Not too loud and not too quiet
Our waitress was great. Very attentive. Food was excellent. Enjoyed everything. One of my favorite restaurants in Auburn.
Have eaten here before and really enjoyed but my last visit left me very unimpressed.

Amazing food and staff above any expectations!
Thank you for the true southern hospitality experience!
Thank you for your great comments and feedback. We have shared this with the team and look forward to welcoming you back!
Thanks for joining us for Thanksgiving! Glad to see you had such a great experience with your friends and family.
The food was really good. We (a party of 3) arrived at 1:00 pm to an empty restaurant and many dirty tables. We got the girl working the bakery to seat us. Our wait staff was friendly but forgot to turn in our starter order. Hence, we received our starter with our main course. The wait staff said "sorry, I forgot to turn in the order for the appetizer". I really thought she should have given that to us complimentary as she was the one that missed the mark. Oh well, life goes on.
Dear Dano, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and I am sorry that the service levels fell short. We certainly will use this as an opportunity to teach our team for improvement and growth. Thank you for visiting us and we would love to see you again
Haley (sp?) was our server and she did an awesome job.
Thank you ScottA for the review. I shared your comments with Haley and the Ariccia team. See you soon!
Wonderful, great place for excellent pasta
Thank you for the great comments and review. Hope to see you again soon!
We loved the antipasto board, plenty for three before our a la carte dinner selections.
Suggest these delicious dishes: brussels, mushrooms, salmon Caesar salad, carrots with rice.
