Add in a great wine list and signature cocktails, and Ariccia is always the place to go. 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.

Came in for nothing but desert. Ordered a bottle of wine and a several tasy deserts. Thegirls were wonderful, the weather so compliant and cool and atmosphere was subtle. We had a blast haning out with one another. this place and the sharing are very special... Everything was great, especially our server; however, they need a lemon cake. Just sayin'...

The buffet was substantial! I didn't go to the egg bar because I was too full on the biscuits and gravy and the awesome bacon. It is pricey, but it's not Burger King quality food either. These were chefs, not teenagers! Very good!

We go to Ariccia about once every couple months. I've never been disappointed with the food. We love going to the pasta bar on Tuesday nights - great food and great value! The atmosphere is nice and on the weekends going to listen to Jazz next door in Piccolo is a nice treat.

Our favorite thing about Arricia is their Tuesday night Pasta Bar night. It's wonderful - you work with the chef to build your own pasta & have a variety of meats/veggies to build on. We also enjoy their lunch buffets. We've never tried their regular dinner menu, but we should because their food is wonderful.

Decent food at best hotel in the area. However, rather expensive and heavily subsidized by Auburn University. Just guessing, but outside of football game traffic, probably 70% charged back to the college. Better options within waking distance, but it does offer nice ambiance and atmosphere.

The breakfast buffet was delicious and varied. Had someone to cook omelets and eggs to order. Teenage niece loved the yogurt and berries served in small mason jars. Would have given it 5 stars if our server had been more attentive.
