We found the restaurant to be family oriented. We wanted a quiet meal and found it noisy. The service was good but the food needed some help.

We certainly can't find any fault with Aurora's West! We decided to come here for supper as we were looking for Italian food and had a number of disappointing visits at another Italian Restaurant in town. We were lucky to have made reservations, as it packed in pretty quickly around 5:00 or so! Wait staff was very accommodating, polite and... More

We picked this place because of the reviews and were disappointed. We can't understand how people can say that this is the best pizza in Ontario....or even Canada? They must not get out much. This pizza is good but not the best by far. Not worth a reservation.

...everything else we had was amazing! Salads, pasta, panzerotti... all were exceptional... especially the panzerotti. (If it wasn't for the 7 hour drive, I'd go back just for that!) As for the meatballs? They tasted like canned meat. Not at all up to the quality of everything else. Despite the fact that the place was hectic (Friday night), they had... More

The restaurant was busy when we arrived for dinner so we had to sit at the bar. BUT the food more than made up for it !!! My friend and I both love liver and onions and we both agreed that Auroras served THE best liver and onions we have ever had and we have tried many. Cannot speak for... More

We picked this from reviews and weren't disappointed. Maybe should have had the pizza since so many people rave about it. I had the ribs and they were excellent. Not a huge place so we had to wait a bit for a table without a reservation. The bar and menu options give a lot of choice. Service was very good... More

Thick crust, perfect sweet tomato sauce, just the right amount of pepperoni. A large is just the right amount for 3 people with leftovers. Theres two locations in the west end and central Sault. Friendly staff when you pick up the pizza. I personally haven't eaten inside since I've only had the pizza for easily my entire life. You won't... More

This place is very popular but well worth the visit. You might need a reservation because it gets very busy quickly. The food is amazing so do not overlook this little local gem.

I booked online and received an immediate response for our reservation. As we were travelling a lengthy distance, we were about 30 minutes late arriving but our table had been held for us. The service was great and the pizza was amazing. We had a good deal left over which we took with us and ate for our lunch on... More

Fabulous casual restaurant - service is always professional and the food is amazing. We find this to be the best pizza around, and their in-house salad dressing is superb. Aurora's is one of the two local family-friendly restaurants we recommend to out-of-town visitors.

Thank Gail T
