Aurora has very nice ambiance and courteous service. Three of us met to belatedly celebrate a birthday. Two of us ordered from the lunch prix fixe ... very good selection of appetizers and entrees - I wouldn't order the pan-fried chicken milanese again ... it was sliced too thin and was dry; and my other friend ordered a pasta dish...

We visit Aurora on visits to family and the food is great and the staff are always attentive even when a toddler is in toe - just a good Italian restaurant with changing menus and good wine 👍🏻

Not easy to find good restaurants in Westchester. This place has a great ambiance and a great menu. They change it seasonally. Tuesday nights has a great wine deal. Service is always amazing. Same ownership team as mediterraneo on Greenwich Ave. The pizza is great, salads r great, and fish is amazing.

My son and I dropped into the restaurant on a busy Saturday night, as always the Manager was polite and helpful and before long we were sitting down to a great meal. The service was prompt and the food delicious. Would recommend the meatballs to start and the gnocchi and chicken Milanese Overall a great restaurant that consistently delivers.

First time dining here and most certainly not the last! We sat at the Bar... "just because" and were treated much better than at many restaurants. Drinks are very generously poured and the Barman was most courteous and professional. Every dish was better than the one before! The Kobe Beef & Spinach Ravioli are out of this world!
