My husband and I recently went for dinner at Aurora. It was a summer's evening, and we were seated outside. The atmosphere in the restaurant is similar to what you'd find in Italy - there's a real buzz! The wine selection was good, but what...More

We had such a wonderful experience at the Aurora Restaurant recently. The food was exceptional as was the service. My son and his new bride count it as one of their favorite restaurants which is why they chose to have their reception there. The garden...More

The side open courtyard is perfect for an early Summer lunch. The small menu has fresh and tasty Italian dishes and the service is fast and efficient.

Small menu but very well selected. Calamares and octopus were very good. We shared a lot of plates. Gazpacho was a highlight. Cosy place, unpretentious, good cocktails and lovely staff. Highly recommended

Fab Italian restaurant. Great wine list. Service is friendly and easy. One of the best burgers I've had in a while. Tried all the desserts and could not pick a favourite.

LOVE this little restaurant in Brooklyn! Quaint and warm ... with brick walls .... feels like a mix of San Francisco, New York and Italy (all rolled into one). Wood tables, flickering candlelight in paper bags ... loft-like ceilings. Rough, rustic, exudes charm ... everything...More

We had a reservation for a Saturday night, we arrived a little late and were under a time crunch, but the servers were very understanding, and the service was excellent. Food was delicious and not prepared in a typical Italian restaurant way. Atmosphere was very...More

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
