Went based on TripAdvisor reviews with husband and two kids. Was perfect. Had a view of the bay, food was great, prices were low.

A very tired group of four plus one more tired toddler visited this establishment after a long and tiring day of playing tourist. We found it to be very accommodating and the food quite good......from the steak special to the halibut special to the lasagna and the gnocchi to pizza for the little one it was all quite good. Then we topped the meal off with a glass of port and tiramisu. Long story short we are at the front end of our trip and we will visit this restaurant at least once more before leaving the area. Thank you not only for a great meal but also for your outstanding service and great attention to detail for one tired group.

After an unexpected 4 hour hike, we were starving! So, Aurora was the first restaurant we saw as we walked back to our hotel in Sausalito. Well! What a happy surprise! The food was delicious - it arrived HOT. I ate the Salmon - yummy. Came with penne pasta with a fresh tomato and basil sauce. Also served with al dente steamed vegetables tossed in garlic. My husband had the chicken special - again delicious. For dessert we shared the Belgium Chocolate tart. Fantastic - and almond walnut crust, and real un-sweetened chocolate. Overall I am very pleased that we had the opportunity to eat at this less main stream Sausalito restaurant - and I would definitely recommend!

We loved this place. After a long day of hiking in Muir Woods, this was a welcome relief with very friendly service and great comfort food like lasagna and spaghetti. Excellent desserts and wine selection as well. We got a great bottle of Italian wine for $28 and most meals were about $15-$20. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting and we got to sit along the large plate glass windows. Though the pictures on the website seemed to suggest the windows would look out over some speactacular scenery, which they did not, it was still a nice view of some of Sausalito. It was also very easy to find from the 101.

There are so many decent restaurants in the area and this place is not one of them. Service is poor, and the food is really average. Also check twice your bill!
