Unfortunately we had quite high expectations based an all positive reviews at TripAdvisor. However the pizzas our kids had were just ordinary pizza's nothing special. My wife and I tried the today's special, lasagne ($19), but that was quite flavorless. Also my wife's lasagne was cold in the middle so we send it back and got a new one. We... More

My husband had a delicious pizza, I had a very tasty pasta . Both beautifully cooked and served steaming hot. We will returning here at least once before our holiday... More

Was able to get to Sausalito twice on this visit! Great food. Wonderful service and atmosphere. We enjoyed carpaccio, salmon, and homemade lasagne bolognese. Awesome!

Their business card states authentic Italian cuisine. So authentic that when the waitress brought the pasta dishes she also brought two different parmesan cheese. One was shredded and the other was mini strips of cheese. When I asked her if one of the two cheeses was Pecorino she said no but that she had Pecorino in the back if I'd... More

We went there on Monday for lunch. Not expecting much, were we wrong. I had the spaghetti and my companion had a pasta fish dish. I would give my spaghetti a 5 if they would have drained the water a little more. The sauce was excellent as was the spaghetti. I doubt that you would find a better combination for... More

We shared an excellent thin crust pizza and a glass of wine while gazing at 'The Bay' . The Waiter was polite and charming.

I love this quaint Italian restaurant in Sausilito! The gluten-free pizza was so delicious I called waiter over to make sure it wasn't a mistake. It was absolutely delicious with fresh ingredients. The mozzarella was yummy. Their pasta dish, also gluten-free was so good. I had white clam sauce. I just had to try a couple of items from the... More

I had always wondered what was on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. We were so pleasantly surprised when we ran into this quaint and heavenly little restaurant called Aurora's. From the friendliness of the staff, the professionalism of Cesar, our waiter to the presentation and taste of the authentic cuisine, we were absolutely delighted. It truly blessed... More

We stayed in an apartment close to Aurora Ristorante Italiano and this restaurant came highly recommended. We were a little wary of setting our expectations too high for fear of being disappointed, but their food was great (we had both pizzas and pasta) and service quick (we had takeout). Highly recommended.

We stopped by Aurora after biking from Fishermans Wharf and across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a pleasant sight for two hungry and thirsty bikers, located just as you enter Sausalito, the first restaurant that we saw. We had read no reviews so we didn't know what to expect, but to say the food was good would be an... More
