Established over a decade ago, Aurora restaurant is a landmark of the Italian cuisine in the vibrant neighborhood of Williamsburg.
Aurora creates a perfect balance of tradition and innovation, with a great respect for seasonality, by combining top quality Italian imports, sustainably grown local produce and house-made specialties. 
The wine program offers a list of over 150 labels, along with craft beers, signature cocktails, and a full liquor bar.
The rustic and charming dining room with exposed brick walls and high ceilings, opens to an intimate, leafy garden, enclosed during the colder months, and perfect for a relaxing dinner "al fresco" during the warm season.

Went to Aurora for the first time last night for New Year's Eve with my other half. We loved every single item we tried off the NYE menu. The charred octopus paired with prime rib were delicious appetizers. The squid ink pasta with lobster was divine in addition to the wild boar pasta. Service was top notch as well, very attentive and personable. We even received free Prosecco as a toast at midnight. Very impressed with the establishment and we will definitely be returning.

New year’s meal. The service was really good! The drinks and wine were excellent. They went a little heavy on the truffle for one app and the ribs were good but not very tender. Pasta was solid. A little bread would’ve been great. Chocolate torte dessert is great. Lemon ricotta cake is a little dry but still good.

AMAZING food. Really had a good time. My only issue was our server. The whole time it felt like she was tryin to rush us out. I ordered a drink after dinner and she told us that the bar and kitchen was calling last call, which is fine but she never came up to us before that to talk about dessert. I’m a server myself so I get how it can be when you’re really busy with a lot of tables but her service just felt really cold and very rushed

Aurora had nice ambiance in their covered outdoor dining area. The food was good, but nothing to rave about. Unfortunately, I found their service to be lacking. They missed one of my friends orders, the server was not attentive and somewhat standoff-ish, and they rushed us out earlier than the allotted 2hrs for our party of 8. It was great that they take reservations, but I have mixed feeling about returning.

Truffle oil ruined my egg Benedict order. I don’t think that oil goes well. Service was excellent!!

Took my wife and our 1 year old for my wife's birthday brunch. The experience was great from beginning to end. From our greeter, Guilherme, to the bus boy, Frank, I cannot recall a friendlier experience.
The food was also fantastic. This will definitely be our new go to restaurant!! Well done Aurora!!

This is my second time at this beautiful restaurant and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. The staff is all so kind. My boyfriend is vegan and although they don’t have vegan options on the menu that accommodated him and his diet. The place is gorgeous and the food and drinks are perfect.

Food was amazing, service was terrible. Been here several times but this is the first time experiencing terrible service. Waitress never came to check on table not once, ordered a bottle of white wine and was left on the table to get warm. Finished the bottle before main course but she never came back to check on us so we never got another drink the rest of our dinner. Truly ruined the experience because food was good.
