It was worth the drive. For an unknown restaurant it was fantastic. Incisor was awesome
This is a local restaurant away from the main streets of Sausalito. The menu, Italian, is varied with a variety of entrees and pizza. They were not crowded on a Tuesday night and observe the COVID protocols. A very good experience.
We love Aurora! Such a great neighborhood gem in Sausalito and the owner - Caesar- is a terrific host. Italian food was all yummy and a great value. Live guitarist singing Brazilian jazz tunes was added bonus. Definite recommend.
Great service with terrific food. Thanks Aurora!
First time to dine here and definitely not last. It is a very nice, home-feel place. Excellent variety of food and desserts. The wait staff is friendly and courteous. Lots of room and has outside dining as well. I also enjoyed the type of music that they play in the background. Really enjoyed the time. Thank you for your excellent service!
Perhaps the worst Pizza I had in a decade. The eggplant appetizer was also tasteless. To top it, detected an attitude with the server and received no attention / service during the meal.
Great authentic fresh Italian food and excellent service! A+++++*
The waitstaff was kind and knowledgeable We had kids with us and they were very professional and kind. Great family business!
Overall the food was great, however, the bread brought out was burnt, the second basket too. I don’t mind a little burnt crust but nephews pizza was burnt too. I didn’t say anything because they were very nice but the fact that they thought it was ok to serve burnt anything is baffling
Excellent dinner. Our waiter said 2 people didn’t show up for work so he apologized in advance. There was no need to have said anything as the service was excellent and everything came quickly. The Linguine alla Pescatora was outstanding: everything was fresh and delicious and there was a lot of seafood to pasta ratio. Highly recommend this place.
It was just ok
Aurora is a neighborhood gem! The food and friendly service is consistently above par. It’s delicious, fresh Italian food without extra fluff. They have many star dishes, but our favorites are the Chicken Piccata which is super tender and the Raviolis Al Pollo.
Great food, good location. Great neighborhood Italian place.
This is a great place to visit. Terrific service and food. Only challenge this restaurant has is location compared to other sites—it is slightly off the main street, but it is 100% worth it for the food, service and ambiance. This is a highly recommended restaurant!
Service was great and food was delicious. Our preference was definitely for having a view or
Wonderful, fresh pasta and amazing specials. Service was friendly!
Lunch for Mother’s Day
Previous reviews led us here and glad we went. This is a solid locals neighborhood place for very good classic Italian food with caring and attentive service at a fair and reasonable price. Great for the family with options for everyone....we’ll be coming back.
Good atmosphere, great prices
Lovely visit on Mother's Day! The staff was very friendly and welcoming! The food far exceeded my expectations!
Best experience ever , it’s our favorite restaurant we highly recommend it
Wonderful food and service!! Definitely coming back! Delicious!!
Best service highly recommend it
Our first family celebration “inside” a restaurant for over a year. The food was delicious and the service was excellent and accommodating. Beautiful weather topped off a day to remember!!!
Amazing experience and good service
A nice, down to earth Italian restaurant. A place for the locals, price is reasonable. It is close to downtown but away from the touristy shops.
We came to visit Saisalito
Such a nice group of people running the restaurant!! Food was amazing I highly recommend this place.
My wife and I stopped into this delightful restaurant after driving around Mount Tamalpais. My wife had the salmon which she loved and I had the Saltimbocca alla romana with veal. Both dishes were delicious. I am certain that we will visit this restaurant again soon.
Our first time ~ what a great find! Quaint place, hospitable staff and delicious food!! A hidden gem!!
We had high expectations due to high reviews. The pasta didn’t have any flavor, the pizza’s crust wasn’t thin as the menu stated and the environment was terrible.
Wonderful atmosphere, great Italian food and amazing staff / service! Ed was really friendly and attentive. Best customer service I've experienced in a long time! By far!
Locally owned business, they deserve our support during these difficult times.
Pastas were excellent
Such a cute family owned restaurant that runs very efficiently. A warm environment and great patio seating
Aurora is a favorite neighborhood restaurant in Sausalito. They are making the best of a bad situation with the outdoor dining. We like the back deck. But the table we had this evening was next to a window with to go boxes piled up. But the wonderful food and service made up for the lack of ambience.
Had a wonderful time. We were celebrating the life of our 97 year old mom. Amid COVID19, my family enjoyed all of the delicious food, especially the homemade Tiramisu. Will definitely come back!
Excellent service. Very good food. A nice quiet table with a heater. What else can you ask for these days.
The pizza was nowhere near but we expected from an Italian eatery. It honestly tasted like grocery store frozen pizza. The Chicken Marsala was solid, I'd give it 3.5 stars. The table wine, Ruffino Chianti, was overpriced.
Aurora is great ! The food just keeps getting better. Actually their lamb is outstanding
I spend a lot of time in Sausalito but this was first time at this restaurant because it's a little further away from center. I met a girlfriend for dinner here. We were disappointed that the pizza we wanted was not available because they ran out of prosciutto so we got the homemade spinach and cheese ravioli with marinara sauce instead which was very good. We shared the spinach and pear salad to start which had a little too much dressing. We should have asked for dressing on the side. For dessert we shared the tiramisu which was amazing, probably one of the best I've ever had. The service was attentive without being overbearing. I will definitely be back!
