Great place to visit with friends or family. Good for lunch and dinner. I like that they have good Italian food as well as pizza.

My son and I dropped into the restaurant on a busy Saturday night, as always the Manager was polite and helpful and before long we were sitting down to a great meal. The service was prompt and the food delicious. Would recommend the meatballs to start and the gnocchi and chicken Milanese Overall a great restaurant that consistently delivers.

First time dining here and most certainly not the last! We sat at the Bar... "just because" and were treated much better than at many restaurants. Drinks are very generously poured and the Barman was most courteous and professional. Every dish was better than the one before! The Kobe Beef & Spinach Ravioli are out of this world!

Wife and I go here routinely. Usually have salad turned into entree w salmon. Menu changes seasonally but these things r staples. Tuna tartare doesn't disappoint. Last night we took the family. Kids had a blast. Loved the pizza and the desserts. Italian doughnuts surprised one the upside. Chocolate cake great. creme brûlée ok. Nice environment. Great staff.

We had an enjoyable dinner. They have a nice menu- salads, pasta dishes, fish, chicken, meat and pizza. We started by sharing a goat cheese salad. It was very fresh and tasty - size large enough for sharing. The waiter brought a bread tray to the table - 3 kinds of bread. The bread was very fresh and tasted great... More

We go here at least once a week, it's perfect service, delicious spot on food, great bartender and inventive chef. The manager works miracles. Menu changes seasonally but they will still make your favorite from the previous menu if you ask. Plus they have one of the best burgers around, and the gnocchi is authentic and made perfectly !!!

Aurora consistently has great, professional service and excellent food (The Parmesan crusted Halibut melts in your mouth and the Chicken Milanese is my husband's favorite). Either lunch or dinner is a good choice, but make sure to make a reservation - this is a popular restaurant!

Great service, interesting dishes and always the same great food. It's great for a celebration too because there is something for everyone on the menu and it is not over priced. Try the Watermelon Martini... Cheers!
