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.

For a restaurant that is supposed to be upscale, the service was indifferent. It's the only restaurant I've been to where the wine was opened and poured into glasses, and served before anybody had a say. They essentially emptied the bottles into glasses and up them on the table. Quite strange. Could have lived with that, but the food wasn't... More

Ariccia has been a favorite among my group a friends for a while -- we loved the Sunday morning jazz brunches the most, and would visit at least once a month.

Food always good. Service can be a little slow due to frequent turn over of wait staff (affiliated with hotel & restaurant management program at AU) however, they are always friendly. Hans does a great job!

Came in for nothing but desert. Ordered a bottle of wine and a several tasy deserts. Thegirls were wonderful, the weather so compliant and cool and atmosphere was subtle. We had a blast haning out with one another. this place and the sharing are very special... Everything was great, especially our server; however, they need a lemon cake. Just sayin'...

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.
