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.

We love this place. In particular, the bar crew is awesome. Every week, Brent Westlake is wonderful. He is personable and professional and makes a point of being sure you get excellent service. He's also bright and awesome

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!

I'm a local and decided to go spend an evening at the bar at Ariccia. Brent and Nick pleasantly surprised me.

We had dinner there on a "slow" monday. It was really very nice and surprisingly enough quite lively in both Ariccia and its next door Piccolo. They said we did not need reservations that night.

I am at Ariccia for lunch anywhere from 3-5 times a week, and I have to say that Chef Sarah does a wonderful job with the buffet. Her food selections on the buffet are well-balanced and tasty. I definitely recommend.
