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.

I have eaten here twice and both times wonderful. Favorite starter dishes are the Suppli (risotto croquettes); Crudo di Tonno (tuna tartare); and anything with octopus. All the pasta dishes we ordered were interesting, fresh and savory. The restaurant itself is comprised of a glassed in garden room and an affixed area with a brick wall and old wood floors.... More

Saw this restaurant in an article on buzzfeed about great brunches in NYC and glad I went. It was easy to get to and there was plenty of free parking (midday on a Sunday). There is a main dining room and a solarium type room, which is where we ate. It's decorated to look like a rustic tuscan farmhouse, and... More

This review would have given an excellent rating but the prices are just a little too high for what you're getting. Now, don't get me wrong, the good is great, the drinks wonderfully produced and the staff conscientious. I just resent being charged so much for a side dish and a huge amount for a fish main course.

We visited from Melbourne and found the food at Aurora outstanding. Recently I wrote a review of an iconic Melbourne Italian restaurant, where the service and ambiance is second to none, but the Italian food was not first class. I have felt I may have been over critical about the food until we dined at Aurora. Aurora's Italian food offering... More

The food and service are great but don't go here if you are entertaining for business. They don't take American Express and this makes for costly bookkeeping re-entries for customers. Just no point in tempting fate. This problem is worse if you are traveling from abroad because, where Amex has its own network and can follow you from country to... More

Definitely the best Italian in the area and some of the best we've had in NYC. The authentic food is consistently amazing and the impressive wine list leaves many options for perfect pairing. The brunch is particularly good for the very reasonable price. Several egg dishes come with the more subtle black truffle for a dynamite combination. The coffee is... More
