Ariccia is Auburn's home for fresh, rustic Italian influenced 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.

Dining at it's finest

The food was absolutely delicious! The dishes were creative and beautifully presented. The wait staff could not have been more attentive! This is an experience that no one should miss who either visits Auburn or lives any where in the surrounding areas!

The new and improved A~T is not only the best food in Auburn, but it is the most beautiful restaurant with the best atmosphere. The students who are employees are professional beyond their years and I love the idea of supporting the HRM program when I go there. Auburn's hottest spot in town!

We ate at Ariccia while staying at the Hotel at Auburn. Typically I avoid hotel restaurants, but this is one you definitely should try. The cuisine is not your traditional "red sauce" Italian, but is more upscale and continental. There are several pasta dishes, but more meat and seafood entrees. Excellent selection of wines and very professional service. Clearly the... More

Simply the best Italian food, especially the home-made pasta. My family enjoyed it so much we ate there 4 nights in a row and it never disappointed us. The service staff (especially Kyle) was exceptional and allowed us the modify the menu as per our wishes. We will return when we return to AU.
