The food is good, but I would not go again because of the service.
Some of the waiters act like they are doing you favour, so that makes the visit not very pleasant. We waited 30 min until someone got our order.
Its great that many celebrities goes there, but we pay the same prices and expect to receive value for our money and good experience.
Prices are high for Capri.

The Restaurant sounds to be very cool as many notorious people seems to appreciate.
The Location is nice, apart from the fact that we were two and were stretched between the other tables.
Food is fine, but prices are Sky High for what you get.
You're in Capri so everything is more expensive I recon it, but it seems that in the island, apart from a few places is like staying to be at the auction of whom is willing to rob and steal more money from the tourists.
I believe this game has a limited time as people won't keep being stupid in the future.
Anyhow location is suggestive in the old city center.
Service is fine, all waiters are very helpful and nice, despite the fact that you pay and it is clearly shown in the Check. 'Something totally unusual in Italy.

Wait time with a reservation was 90 minutes after the reservation time. Food is not in the top 20 on Capri yet the prices are extremely high. The experience has gone down dramatically in the past year or two.

Before the disappearance of its sweet original owner, this restaurant was a place you, regardless of who you were or where you were from, could be guaranteed prompt and courteous attention and a delicious meal. Sadly this is no longer the case. Now those of us with reservations are ordered by the old lady’s daughter (Mia) and her appointed assistant (not sure of her name), to spread around chaotically while tables sit empty and set and the two of them swan around observing and waiting. Only after they seem satisfied that they have a crowd large enough and miserable enough, do they deign to selectively approach the throngs. Tables are then haphazardly offered. You see some whose reservations are later than yours being offered a choice of tables before you. And if you politely offer to take one (suitable for your number) that a favoured customer refuses, the new assistant (and even the owners daughter) rudely dismiss you with “ No! No! This isn’t for you!), keep you waiting for another 10 -15 minutes and then cram you in the hot, stuffy new opened part of the restaurant across the street from the original one. Had it not been so late and had my family not been starving, I would certainly not have stayed. Why people still clamour to this restaurant after such a miserable drop in standards and flagrant discriminatory attitude truly beggars belief!

We just left Capri. Been coming to this island every summer for 20 years. Aurora is always a sure thing. Fun atmosphere and fabulous food. Love it. In fact, we went three times for dinner in one week. Yes, it is that good. Of course, the pizzas are terrific. However, the pappardelle with truffles is beyond divine as is the sea bass with sauteed spinach. Truthfully, the whole menu is a crowd pleaser. Yes, it gets busy and even with a reservation, there can be a wait. It is worth it, in my opinion. Love the family that owns it and they always treat us well. When the music gets going later in the night, it is super fun. Best to book at 8:30. While it may seem a bit early for dining in Capri- you will more likely to be seated quickly. Truly our absolute favorite. Just go.
