We had eggs with salmon and fresh mozzarella, accompanied by fresh lemonade, finishing with chocolate mousse. Brilliant. It is the spot to see art people in Williamsburg, actors, movie makers (during... More

Super cute rustic restaurant with a romantic ambience. Love the great glass enclosed outdoor area. Perfect for a romantic date! Delicious and creative Italian food. We shared the fritto misto appetizer. I had the veal loin, my date had the scallops. Both cooked to perfection. Had the plum gin cocktail. Very well-balanced, fresh and crisp drink--not too sweet which was... More

We stayed a week in New York, and this was the best restaurant we visited! The food was fantastic, so was the wine and the service. Got recomendations from some "locals", - Thank you:-)

Very nice location, wooden tavern style, great staff. Food is delicious. Just pick and enjoy. Only the steak is a European cut and quite small. Great wines, chef consults here very professional.

We had a late lunch at Sunday and it was great! Food is amazing - great selection on Italian dishes with a modern twist. Decor and ambiance were really nice and service was also good. Price was fair. Walking around Williamsburg at Sunday and catching up lunch at the Aurora is a great Sunday break!

Aurora is amazing during mid-seasons thanks to their terrace. The Italian-rustic-like style makes you feel somewhere in Italy, that is why you must try this place above all on Saturday or Sunday mornings for your brunch. The salmon is very good as well as their Italian products. Even the wine is good without being too expensive.
