Great place and ambiance. Excellent food. I had the Strapazzate : scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a burrata mozzarella on a little brioche - then an affogato dessert: mascarpone ice cream drones in a hot espresso. I recommend this place... lovely

Two of my friends and I have the pleasure of eating at Aurora as a birthday dinner to myself. It has always been a favorite restaurant of mine in Williamsburg Brooklyn, in the top 3 of my favorite 5 spots!! I can't say I have a favorite dish on the menu, I've had everything and live the entire menu. It... More

Its a really nice establishment. Very clean and hip inside. The service was average. The food was good. I had their burger, and it was good. My wife had a pasta dish which was too spicy but it wasnt noted or explained anywhere

A charming Brooklyn brunch spot in the heart of Williamsberg. Wonderful and friendly service and excellent food. I had the Strapazzate, which was a charming combination of scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, bur rata and toasted brioche, accompanied by a mimosa. My friend had a burger. This was followed by a really very good and genuine tiramisu, which was clearly... More

Tried that very American tradition of Brunch - and called into this very non American themed place. With an Italian theme you have a choice of sitting indoors or out under a garden canopy - heated in the winter and very light. The whole atmosphere is rustic with plain brick, wooden furniture and a full bar. Your greeted warmly and... More

We've been to Aurora several times, and we've never had a bad meal here. I prefer to sit out in the very pretty garden area when it's temperate, particularly as the seating inside can be somewhat noisy. The pastas are always good and the wine list is reasonable.

Food is good (the truffle eggs beneditct are super yummy!). Pricey considering how much food you get. Gets super crowded during weekends.

Look no further for an intimate farm-to-market restaurant to create a most memorable wedding day and dining experience. Our daughter's ceremony was recently held at the Aurora and the staff was amazing in the speed by which they turned the wedding seating into elegant dining areas. Each employee was attentive to every detail. The meal was paced perfectly, the wines... More

The atmosphere is pleasent, nice garden setting. It was a rainy night and the ceiling was leaking on our party. The hostess knew this after we moved and seated the next party at the same wet table, only to move them after they complained. Te portions were small and somewhat pricey. SK

I had heard great things about Aurora, so today I and a friend ventured over from Manhattan to try it. The restaurant itself is charming with lovely additional outdoor seating. There is a 3 course $20 prix fixe menu which offers a glass of wine for an additional $3 charge. $3!!!!!! Honest. And, in our case, that $3 selection was... More
