Ariccia is Auburn’s home for fresh, rustic Italian cuisine. From homemade pastas and hearth-baked pizzas, to sizzling steaks and grill-fired fish, our chef-prepared dishes use regional ingredients served at the peak of flavor and freshness. 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.

Start at the bar

The food here is always great, service is professional, but the highlight is the Ariccia bar! Drinks are served quickly and very fairly priced. Happy hour is starting up soon so we will most definitly be there even more often!

The food was exquisite. The setting romantic but the service was what took the cake. Definitely ask for bobby when you make your reservation.

Sarah Hayward at the bar does everything well, but those chocolate martinis are off the chart! And Carla in the restaurant is always perfect. Not sure about some of the answers to the other restaurant questions, e.g., reservations, etc., but the whole operation (hotel, restaurant, bar, conference center) is absolutely first class. Many of the employees are students of the... More

Had the Salmon which was off the charts great and the most flavorful carrots I have ever eaten. Bobby put me on a nice red wine as well. Can't go wrong here.

Brooke and Carla are always so great to take care of us! They're attentive, relaxed and super helpful with special requests, not to mention sweet! The pastry chef is also wonderful--especially the apple pie!!

Such a wonderful evening at Arricia! Malorie and the service team pampered us from the moment we sat down. Started off with delicious oysters and market table of cheeses and in-house cured meats. Tried the Salmon because it is on the list of the top 100 things to eat in Auburn before you die. It was outstanding and did NOT... More

My family and I visited Arricia's for the first time tonight. The pasta bar was delicious and everything was so fresh! Bobby and Chante were our servers and were very friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better evening.

I have been to Ariccia for dinner three times and I don't get the love for this restaurant. It is a pretty place in a great location and the menu looks delicious. The actual food is just not that good. The best thing about my three trips to Ariccia was seeing Charles Barkley there on trip #3.

meat/cheese appetizer was pretty good, I'm not much into pickled things or exotic cheeses, but enjoyed the meats. Don't even remember what pasta I had but it was amazing! Had the cobbler for dessert, also amazing!
