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.

I've been to Ariccia many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My favorite experience so far has been our last visit for Pasta Night. It was a great value, the food was incredible, and the service was wonderful. We had Bobby as our server, and he was thoughtful, considerate and attentive. I highly recommend the pasta night for making your... More

I ordered mac-n-cheese for my kid. When I came back in my room and opened box, I was shocked! No plate, just mac-n-cheese exactly in the box! [URL=http://www.radikal.ru][IMG]http://s14.radikal.ru/i187/1504/3f/c3fdb0ab655b.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Are you restaurant or...? And this is not mac-n-cheese, because there is no cheese! Don't waste your money and time, don't visit this "restaurant"!

I entered the restaurant hoping for an adequate luncheon and was very pleasantly surprised. I had an excellent burger cooked the way I ordered it and a superb salad. Very glad I made that choice over the French fries. Kayla provided excellent service - not hovering, but always available. OK, it wasn't very busy, but she provided just the right... More

What a wonderful surprise, after a very long car trip, to find such a delightful restaurant in the lobby of the hotel. Beautiful surroundings and delicious food. Our server, Bobby, was extremely helpful with food/wine selections and although we arrived toward the late end of dinner service never made our meal feel rushed. He even provided extremely valuable information regarding... More

Talk about service! Bobby made sure we were comfortable and taken care of from the moment we arrived at Auburn. We first met him outside on the patio and he ended up as our server in the restaurant as well. Creative bartenders and an excellent chef makes this restaurant and must do when in auburn!
