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.

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.

I have the habit to go every Wednesday to the bar and ask for a different cocktail for now 3 years and half. I never had the same twice, beside the fact that sometimes they do not have the ingredient, they always do their best to make the cocktail I want. I am very difficult and they meet my standard...

We are currently staying at the hotel at Auburn University & decided to eat in the restaurant tonight. Big Mistake! The menu is not extensive, the restaurant had only five other diners. Yet we had to wait 40mins for the starter, then over 1 hour 30mins for our main course of pasta and pizza. We gave up the wait when... More

This year's teddy bear tea was more than disappointing! It seemed as if the decoration, food, staff, and preparation overall wasn't as previous years. They usually serve nice hot chocolate with marshmallows and all, but this time, it was more like brown water. When my daughter asked if she may have some marshmallows, their response was that they ran out... More

Was very disappointed in the restaurant. I realize it was graduation weekend, but the service was poor. We had a large party and only had one waitress and had to wait a long time to get our food.

This is a restaurant affiliated with AU that I have been to many many times. The menu choices seem very tasty; however in my experience they come up short.
