We stopped in here after a bike ride from the golden gate. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed a great lunch.

I don't usually leave bad reviews however I was shocked at the quality of the pizza we ordered in an acclaimed Italian restaurant while dining with my boyfriend who is Italian. $16 dollars for a 13inch pizza that quite frankly tasted like it was a frozen pizza chucked in the oven. Take away like Dominos and Pizza Hut taste better... More

We had a wonderful, very quiet luncheon at Aurora. The restaurant was empty, possibly due to rain and limited parking; however, we enjoyed the exclusive attention. We both had the salmon, well presented, tasty and fresh.

I live just up the hill from Aurora restaurant and I use it as my go to place when I'm dining alone during the week. After a long commute home and when I just don't feel like cooking it is so nice to know that Aurora is waiting for me. A great glass of the super Tuscan wine, a plate... More

Bella Italia in Sausalito! Authentic Italian pizza and lasagna, like back in Europe. But out of the way, so not too over crowded. Always worth a stop.

The staff were great & the food was fantastic after riding on a colder day. The restaurant has glass all the... More

I'm very surprised by all the negative reviews; I loved our experience here! It's away from the bustle of downtown Sausalito, and they have parking under the restaurant. Maybe it's because I'm not as much of a "foodie" as the people posting bad reviews, but I thought it was a DELICIOUS family-style Italian restaurant. The pepperoni pizza and chicken fettuccine...
