In August we chose to get married at Aurora in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and we could not have asked for more! We visited from the UK, so we had to arrange it all by email. However, Irene was extremely helpful and accomodating. Excellent customer service!!! We had a buyout of the Garden area and the location was amazing - It was... More

My now-husband and I had decided to get married while were on holiday in Brooklyn. We had no real plans as our wedding date was not fixed. A few days before the wedding day itself, I had walked past Aurora whilst exploring Williamsburg and was captivated by the beautiful garden. It was then that we thought it would be the... More

This was our destination for Sunday brunch. My friend and I each had a different salad. I had the peach with goat cheese and she had the fava salad.Service was slow but the food was good.

Dropped by for a lovely brunch. I had the peach and goat cheese salad and my friend had the fava bean salad. We both enjoyed our meals.

the patio felt like you were in the country--rather than the middle of Brooklyn the food was interesting--very creative and well executed the service was a bit slow for a Monday night....but everything was correct really enjoyed the ambiance.

We had a family brunch in this neighborhood gem. We loved it! The garden tables are lovely in this little spot and food is delicious. Each dish was excellent and the fresh squeezed oj in mimosa was grand.

Five of us ate dinner mid-week & savored every morsel from our own & each other's selections! The waiter made many helpful suggestions & catered to our every whim. ( I loved that he also spoke Italian well.) Here's what we ate: proscuitto & burrata cheese, mixed salad, little gnocchi with mushrooms & asparagus (so delicate, so good!), pappardelle pasta... More

The Lunch Prix Fixe can't be beat! You get to choose an appetizer, entree, dessert AND glass of wine for $20!!. I always have the Paccheri alla Norma. It's divine. I have been tempted by the passing dishes of Bistecca (grilled skirt steak with roasted red onions and potatoes) but the Norma with roasted eggplant, tomato, mozzarella and pesto pulls... More
