Tried that very American tradition of Brunch - and called into this very non American themed place. With an Italian theme you have a choice of sitting indoors or out under a garden canopy - heated in the winter and very light. The whole atmosphere is rustic with plain brick, wooden furniture and a full bar. Your greeted warmly and... More

We've been to Aurora several times, and we've never had a bad meal here. I prefer to sit out in the very pretty garden area when it's temperate, particularly as the seating inside can be somewhat noisy. The pastas are always good and the wine list is reasonable.

Food is good (the truffle eggs beneditct are super yummy!). Pricey considering how much food you get. Gets super crowded during weekends.

Look no further for an intimate farm-to-market restaurant to create a most memorable wedding day and dining experience. Our daughter's ceremony was recently held at the Aurora and the staff was amazing in the speed by which they turned the wedding seating into elegant dining areas. Each employee was attentive to every detail. The meal was paced perfectly, the wines... More

The atmosphere is pleasent, nice garden setting. It was a rainy night and the ceiling was leaking on our party. The hostess knew this after we moved and seated the next party at the same wet table, only to move them after they complained. Te portions were small and somewhat pricey. SK

I had heard great things about Aurora, so today I and a friend ventured over from Manhattan to try it. The restaurant itself is charming with lovely additional outdoor seating. There is a 3 course $20 prix fixe menu which offers a glass of wine for an additional $3 charge. $3!!!!!! Honest. And, in our case, that $3 selection was... More

Had lunch yesterday with my family in Aurora. The courtyard was a lovely setting in the sunshine and we had an excellent ragu.

When my wife's cousin was coming to town to visit with another cousin who lives in Williamsburg, we agreed to meet there for brunch, and went to Aurora. We had a great time, and felt that it had a real relaxed homey feel to it.

I have been here at least 5 or 6 times when I come to visit my daughter. It has a nice selection and the food is very well made and of quality. I am really pretty picky about my Italian food because I cook and am pretty good at it. So, not to be snobbish , but I enjoy restaurants... More
