Great food, service between courses was slow, we had to fill our own water and wine glasses which considering we had a late lunch, and it was quite, was disappointing. Our server was very nice, just not too attentive. I would go back and do recommend.

I love Aurora! I go at least once a week or every other week for lunch. Never had been for brunch so I suggested it for myself and 3 friends. As usually the food was amazing.... However.... our waitress was so unfriendly. She seemed annoyed to be there and when we asked for suggestions she was short and snappy. I know we all have our days but no need to take it out on your customers. I felt kind of bad after I raved about it to my friends and then to have that type of service it kind of ruined the experience. Hope that changes.

The food was not good. The meatballs tasted frozen, the waiter lied about having a house wine to convince us to buy a bottle. We asked for 1 order of Cacio E Pepe without goat cheese and they gave us a plain plate of pasta. We asked for another pasta with the eggplant on the side and they gave us another bowl of plane pasta. Terrible food, bad overall experience.

Even though the restaurant opens at 11, I was early (10:50)
It was pouring and they still let me come in and sit
They served me a cup of tea and never made me feel uncomfortable
My friend arrived on time and we sat for almost 2 hours catching up
Brunch was outstanding and we never felt rushed

The food was excellent. Only thing was we were sat right next to the kitchen so it would sometimes get a bit loud. Other than that, the staff were very warm and welcoming. Would definitely return.

Excellent Italian restaurant. The menu is focused and every dish is executed well, there are no weak points. Wine selection is great, from affordable bottles and quartinos to high-end bottles that make the perfect capstone to a celebratory evening. Deserts are excellent. The paccheri (sp?) has been on the menu since the restaurant opened and is still perfect.

The food was delicious - the meatballs were a big hit, as was the red snapper special. The service was pleasant and efficient. Biggest problem - the restaurant is small, so tables are very close together which can result in too much closeness, especially on a busy night. The other problematic issue was that we were a group of five, and one person was late due to a family issue-the restaurant would not allow the rest of us to order appetizers while we waited; this led to an unexpectedly long delay in dining. The staff, however, was very gracious about the time issue and did not make us feel uncomfortable or rushed because of it.

We choose to celebrate our sun's Birthday at Aurora based on Open Table reviews, menu and price list, we were shocked to see the the menu prices at the restaurant arr 20% higher then the one's presented in Open Table!! It was even more shocking that the manager response was simply: "we apologize for the inconvenience ". The pasta is good, and the wine list options are great.

The evening at Aurora started great. 15 minutes wait, although we had a reservation, but no big deal: we were very much looking forward to having dinner. Food was very good and solid (not exceptional), the wine chilled to perfect temperature. With that, heading for a 5-star review. Towards the end of the dinner, however, waiter and manager came nervously to our table three times, asking us to leave in more and more commanding voices, because of another group with a reservation. Given that we were waiting ourselves and just had a rather expensive dinner, tone and approach were, in our view, neither professional nor acceptable. Too many good reviews led to this attitude towards guests, one has to suspect.

I've been to this restaurant before and it has always been a favorite. Ambiance is perfect. Small bar in front and a small dining room in back. Happy Hour drink was a twist on a Negroni. Instead of gin and campari, it was campari and prosecco. Very good drink. Bartender friendly and a good mixologist.

Appetizers: The cheese plate is wonderful with two great jams/chutneys. Fritto Misto of seafood and veggies was cooked perfectly and not heavily breaded.

Entrees: Rigatoni Bolognese was fabulous; one of the best I've had. Pasta cooked perfectly. Two fish dinners as well that were large and delicious. Halibut and a whole Sea Bass.

We were at the bar for a long time and then at the table. They never tried to rush us which was delightful. Will definitely eat here again.

I just enjoyed a birthday dinner with three of our adult children at Aurora Soho. We all absolutely loved this restaurant. I loved the rustic decor and cozy feel. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The food was excellent. We ordered several appetizers and every one of them was excellent. I especially loved the sea bream tartar which was a daily special. My two girls loved the pasta. There were several vegetarian options and the price was quite reasonable!
