Description: 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.

“Wonderful food and great people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

This restaurant offers the food quality of a big time Vegas restaurant. We have been twice so far and will be back. The house salad is great and the roasted chicken is fantastic. The pasta tastes home made and the last time.... Charles Barkley was at the bar! How cool

“Very Good Restaurant and Terrific Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

This restaurant is inside the Hotel at Auburn University directly across the street from campus. I had a very good steak and steamed mussels. My son had a very good, but overpriced lasagne dinner. We had the breakfast buffet and it was a reasonably good value. This is an upscale restaurant. There was a so-so jazz combo playing one night in the bar and the ambiance was jovial, civilized, and relaxed. I liked the bar and it would be a great place to take a date.

“Awesome Lunch Buffett”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

I am not a big fan of buffets, however, the lunch Buffett at Ariccia is awesome. I started with home made Chicken noodle soup along with a salad. The soup contained large pieces of chicken with good flavor. Salad bar was ok, thought this portion of the buffet lacked creativity. Next I returned for a second bowl of soup, Pasta with meatballs, and some talapia.
A shared a desert off a colleague's plate, upside down pineapple cake that was amazing.

The setting here is very upscale. Good prompt service.
