Aurora - Williamsburg
Tasty !!! The buratta to start is lovely
Best neighborhood restaurant. Never disappoints
Great as always
Aurora has served perfect pasta dishes since the first time we came here about 10 years ago. This week was no different and their rib eye steak was perfect as well. Couldn't have had a better meal.
Great service, amazing staff, and delicious Italian food worthy of being called Italian. Highly recommended
The only downside was that our order took a long time (~ 40 minutes) to arrive. If we hadn’t been in a rush, it wouldn’t have been as much a problem as the food and atmosphere were otherwise lovely!
Amazing food, and patio setting was perfect for a summer night dinner. Our hostess was also really great
Just, simply, the best!
Excellent dinner and cocktails. Can't wait to return.
Beautiful space with delicious food and great service. Two of us had their lunch prix fixe menu which was incredibly good value with great options. Service was amazing fast and accommodating, our sever was Saul (not sure if the spelling is correct) he gave great suggestions, was checking in every time we got the next course and made sure we liked everything, also the manager with cool tattoos was very welcoming and made us feel like they are actually happy to have us. I am excited to come back and check out the dinner menu now.
PS was too busy eating the entire to take a picture :)
Amazing food and service, every time!
Romantic dinner at Aurora with outstanding food. Followed by a sunset river walk at Domino park. Forget Manhattan ... just head here instead.
Great place to eat outdoors. Nice relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. Good wine list and cocktails.
Authentic Italian food with a creative flourish. The enclosed garden is gorgeous and the place to be. Nice cool low key vibe with a local crowd.
Consistently great! Food, service and ambiance are always great!
I always love going to Aurora. It was a lovely dinner.
Nice place and service was good and friendly. Wine by the glass was a little pricey but hey the food was good.
I celebrated my 21st birthday at Aurora and it was one of my favorite brunches of all time! The restaurant is beautiful, very lush and green, it really screams Williamsburg. The appetizers were amazing, especially the burrata and prosciutto platter which tastes so authentic and fresh. Entrees were a little on the pricey side, but the portions were fair and food overall was tasty. The only reason I did not give this place 5 stars was because our service was not as attentive as expected. Coming from someone who has worked in upscale restaurants, I expect the server to provide wine pairing recommendations, bring bread to the table without the customer having to ask twice, and check up on our meal regularly. Our server seemed overloaded and the experience was not as interpersonal as we had wished. Other than a tweak in the service, I recommend Aurora and will be returning for dinner!
Cute restaurant and nice backyard. I got the squid ink pasta with clams and it was very sandy which was extremely off putting. Service was okay, not great.
We have travelled all over the world and never have we experienced a restaurant with so much noise. It was impossible to have a conversation. If only the food and service had made up for this but unfortunately this was not the case. I would really not recommend this place.
Solid food. Great service. Fair price.
Most amazing steak I have eaten in a decade. Wine list is sublime. Burata amazing.
This has been a really great restaurant for years.
Great spot, beautiful outdoor terrace, although it was hot on a summer night! The food was phenomenal.
Food is really good, outdoor seating area is beautiful but service is not the best
I always go here for consistent gourmet quality . One of my favorites!!
consistently delicious food (although a bit pricey for what it is), cozy dining room and pretty garden outdoor seating. ravioli was a standout.
We came to Aurora for my husband’s birthday dinner and it was sweet. The outdoor seating was lovely and we had a leisurely, delicious meal. Exceptionally well prepared food. Each dish was delicious and beautifully prepared.
It's ok. I wouldn't say it's anything special, but it looks to be kid friendly and the terrace is nice but otherwise, nothing to write home about.
Fantastic food and service. Great ambience. Pasta was a bit salty but other than that everything was on the money. Octopus was fantastic, tuna tartare was fantastic spaghetti with seafood just out of this world. Very fresh ingredients very fresh pasta.
Always outstanding. Fantastic Bolognese, pasta with crab meat special was light and summery.
I have always had an absolutely delicious meal at Aurora. One of my very favorite restaurants. I always tell people that it's not your grandmother's Italian cooking--it's even better.
Amazing brunch ! We had the scrambled eggs and the Benedicts it was just incredible. The staff is friendly and the place very nice.
Food was delicious, waiter was attentive and ambiance was great. Definitely recommend sitting outside if possible! We will be back.
We’ve been wanting to visit this restaurant for some time. So glad that we finally went. The spaghetti carbonara was amazing with their homemade pasta cooked al dente. Looking forward to going back.
Very well done , excellent food , great service
Feels like a place out of Europe!
Aurora is a lovely spot in Williamsburg. The pastas were delicious and the ambiance is romantic and perfect for a date night!
Great food, great service. Aurora is an excellent standby for when the parents come to town: everyone can find something they like, and the service staff is able to deal graciously with my demanding mother. Also a nice date spot. Highly recommend!
Delicious food, impeccable service, dreamy garden setting.
Very slow food and not warm. Regular here and not up to normal standard.
