We decided to stop into Aurora for a late lunch. While one waitress said they were closed, another rushed us into a table. The food was horrible, and the service (and owner for that matter) were among the worst I have ever experienced. Since they were at the end of their lunch hour, we decided to order a couple of pizzas to make life easy, and get in and out quickly. The pizzas came out quickly and we ate them, but upon noticing other diner's plates, we noticed our pizzas were literally half the size of the others. Additionally, we were never brought our bread, but still charged the 6 euro cover charge for the 15 minutes we were there. The bill came out to 50 euros for 2 pizzas, a beer, a water, and 20 minutes of hell. We decided to pay our bill and go talk to the owner inside...what a mistake that was. She was argumentative and beyond rude...claiming it was our faults for not telling them at the time of the mistake. The bottom line is we went in after we were finished to quietly voice our dismay, and were met with pure rudeness. There are many other amazing restaurants in Capri to eat, and being a vacation spot, it would be best to avoid any place where the waiters, let alone the owner, makes you feel otherwise. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

I have no clue why people made negative comments about Aurora, I have had the best lobster pasta ever, the appetizers and every single food ordered was really good. The only negative thing I could agree is the waiting even though you have a reservation. The place is simply packed every night, do not trust your reservation to sit right away. If I go again, I would definitely go no later than 7:30. Overall, this probably was the best food we had in Capri.

Very good, very busy restaurant. Make a reservation if you decide to go. Loved the pizza! Had some of the best, freshest fish I have had.

Its probably packed by guests hotel of qvisisana as this is the #1 restaurant the concierge would recommend. I'd say the hotel gets some amount of commission for recommending this overrated, rude and so mediocre restaurant. Staff was rude, werent so welcoming to foreigners. They acted like "they were all that" when the food was as bad as my foot. The fish werent fresh, the losbter pasta was overcooked, the shrimps were so normal... Whats all the fuss about this tourist trap?????

For all qvisisana guests, do not do not donot try restaurants the concierge recommended!!

This restaurant was very delicious, from the starters, to the pizza (get the house special) to the pasta! It is definitely a restaurant people who have visited tell you to go. What they dont tell you, is that it's a scene! It is definitely a seen-and-be-seen place in Capri. On the plus side, it makes for great people watching if you're sat outside (which we were). And on the minus side, there was a wait even with a reservation. That said, they have a cute waiting area across from the actual restaurant where they do drink service while you wait for your table. So, waiting for your table still ends up being fun! All in all, I would recommend Aurora, it is very delicious with friendly and helpful waitstaff, just know what you're getting into beforehand!
