Ariccia Cucina Italiana 

Inspired by a hilltop town of palaces, vineyards, and poets, Ariccia Cucina is a modern Italian escape. Small plates of arancini and fresh bruschetta to share, herbs tucked into slow-roasted porchetta, vino Bianca and Rosso on the tables, conversations buzzing, and glasses clinking—at long last, a taste of authentic Italy. From house-made pasta and wood-fired pizzas to sizzling steaks and grill-fired fish, their chef-prepared dishes use regional ingredients served at the peak of flavor and freshness for the best in Auburn dining. Menus are updated seasonally to incorporate the freshest and most flavorful ingredients into our chef-prepared cuisine. Add in a great wine list and signature cocktails, and Ariccia is always the place to go. Ariccia offers private dining options that provide the perfect atmosphere for your rehearsal dinner or bridal shower.
