Great spot on Lake Como.

Summer in Lake Como is very special. And there are few better spots to experience a meal with a view like a local than Ristorante Aurora. From a front table, you'll not only have an excellent view of the lake, but of the locals gathering on the small dock below. A great spot from which to enjoy the... read more

Make sure to get your reservation. Once you do, it will be worth it. Do not forget to try the homemade ravioli with pear and melted local cheese. The views of Lake Como while dinning here are second to none. Also, do not forget to try the terra mousse. Service was just as good as the food. You will not... More

Wonderful views, great atmosphere and amazing food. What more can one ask in this beautiful part of the world. It is highly recommended to make reservations in advance as it serves a small town brimming with tourists.

We passed by this restaurant on our way to our hotel, and after checking in, we didn't have much knowledge about the local restaurants, so we drove back to Aurora. I'm so glad we did. I noticed a fixed price meal with lamb chops, pasta, potatoes, green beans, and another vegetable (I believe squash). This meal was very reasonably priced.... More

The view is breath taking and once sat down who cares what the food taste like. The added bonus to this restaurant is the food is great also. A very varied menu choice and perfect for us as my fiancé is vegetarian. The staff are very welcoming and fussed over my 20 month old daughter. One night we didn't make... More

We were greeted by two glasses of Prosecco, and the service and experience only improved. We started with a pizza and then pasta, and both were excellent. It was dark out so we missed the views, but it was still a great dining experience. The dessert options looked great, but we were too full to try them. Stop by if... More

Like everything else in Italy, make sure to check the times. It was a great place to have lunch. My sister and I ordered the ravioli and chicken scalapini with grilled vegetables. We shared these and it was just the right amount and made a tasty lunch. We knew that in the evening we were having finger food for a... More
