I had heard great things about Aurora, so today I and a friend ventured over from Manhattan to try it. The restaurant itself is charming with lovely additional outdoor seating. There is a 3 course $20 prix fixe menu which offers a glass of wine for an additional $3 charge. $3!!!!!! Honest. And, in our case, that $3 selection was... More

Had lunch yesterday with my family in Aurora. The courtyard was a lovely setting in the sunshine and we had an excellent ragu.

When my wife's cousin was coming to town to visit with another cousin who lives in Williamsburg, we agreed to meet there for brunch, and went to Aurora. We had a great time, and felt that it had a real relaxed homey feel to it.

I have been here at least 5 or 6 times when I come to visit my daughter. It has a nice selection and the food is very well made and of quality. I am really pretty picky about my Italian food because I cook and am pretty good at it. So, not to be snobbish , but I enjoy restaurants... More

Went for brunch--nice place, good service and pleasant staff. The dishes are fresh and well prepared. Loved the prosciutto! The outside space is very nice, but we could not eat there due to a private party, but I would go back again to sit there and try other menu items

We just happened to settle in at Aurora after visiting the BK Flea, and we ended up having a delicious time! The place was full, but we were seated right away on the outdoor covered patio area. It is a nice & green dining space with bright natural light. Excellent coffee, generous portions and really scrumptious menu! The only draw... More

Friends of ours recommended it and we went there for brunch. Great place with a wonderful enclosed outdoor seating area. Service is fast friendly and makes you feel very welcome. The salmon eggs benedict are incredible and the prices are reasonable. Bread is very fresh. All over great relaxing experience. Will be back.

We had the polipo, or octopus, as a starter. It was nicely charred and served with a red pepper on top that was REALLY hot. As mains we had the mushroom ravioli and the crab pasta special, both of which were delicious. The Ciro Bianco white wine was great as well and is available by the glass, quartino or bottle....

Came here for a dinner on our last night in Brooklyn, was a nice restaurant and the red wine was lovely. To be honest I've had better Italian food but it was still nice and had a nice atmosphere.
