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.

My wife and I stayed in the Auburn Hotel for a reunion. We ate in this restaurant 3 times and each meal was well prepared, tasty, and promptly served. This restaurant came highly recommended by friends who live in Auburn. We also really enjoyed both the breakfast and lunch buffets. Great choices on both. We recommend this hotel and restaurant...

A must visit that came highly recommended by the locals. Inviting atmosphere. Able to handle a large party with ease. My husband loved the shrimp Alfredo.

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.

We went for a dinner buffet. It cost around $20 per head, which I felt was expensive. The pastas and breads were good. We had a nice time; the ambiance was good too. You could surely try the dinner buffer, but it is on the expensive side.
