The food is good, very good on occasion. What makes the place better than "good" is the atmosphere - if you go back more than once or twice, they remember you, are genuine, and friendly, in that "trattoria in italy" kinda way.
The wine list is decent, with the wines by the glass being a wee bit of the run-of-the-mill (in a good way).
Oh, lastly, this outpost of Aurora is pretty good for "mommies" (think Wide Aisles to get strollers through)

Atmospheric restaurant with incredible food. Duck hash...to die for. French toast was great. Made from yummy, nummy homemade bread.

Don't walk...RUN!!!

Second time dining here and unfortunately was so much better the first time. Our server started off by spilling wine all over my hand without so much as an apology . For 13 a glass it should have been comped, Octopus very chewy and pasta dishes very bland. Had to ask for bread. Overpriced for what we received very small portions.Probably due to crowd on a Saturday but will not return .

We were slightly disappointed with our meal at Aurora.

This is a busy, buzzy place - absolutely packed. The restaurant has a good menu of interesting dishes.

We started with excellent burrata and Parma ham with tomato bread - really lovely.

Mains of special spaghetti with squid, urchin and crab was okay. Pork chop more successful.

We shared an affrogato for dessert, which was good.

Service was efficient and friendly.
